I'm surprised anyone is still visiting, considering how infrequently I blog.


I was hoping to be posting before this, but it seems that stuff kept coming up.  I'm still planning on blogging more often.

I've been watching the action in Egypt in the news for a few days now; I'm not certain where they are going to be once the dust settles. I just hope we don't get people in DC who think we need to go poking our fingers into that hornet's nest; I'm still waiting for them to bring our soldiers back from the mess they've got them into in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Went out to my mom's last week to do a bit of repair at her place. The fog was interesting that I ran into at spots on the way. The thickest was at the last leg from Grantsville going south to her place.  Once I got onto higher ground, I came out of the fog, and it was sunny the rest of the way.
Click on pictures to enlarge.
The first two pictures are taken halfway through the fog; the first one is facing south, the second is facing north.
The third picture is right after I came out of the fog, but you can't really appreciate the size of it from the photo.  It was a vertical wall, several hundred feet high, and it flowed along the ground without breaking up, like watching a tsunami in slow motion.
The last three pictures are taken at my mom's place, where the sunlight had not burned away the rime yet.

Easy. My blogroll sorts itself in chronological order, so when you post something new, your blog pops to the top of the list.

Reading and on my blog roll. Post when you like, we'll read when you do.

You read me, I read you.

I'd like to think that most of you readers understand that your life is more important than your blog.

That reminds me, I've been meaning to hunt down some of that Blackmore's Night stuff for quite a while now, but still haven't gotten around to it.

You're in my reader, so no matter when you post, I'll know, and I'll read.

We had fog like that around here today. It made for some pretty cool looking frosty trees.

I always come back to your blog whenever you have the time to update!

The fog had been bad over here too.
And my favorite on that play list is "Midnight Rider" by The Allman Brothers

As a fan of Mr Blackmores heavy rock outings I am rather fond of his latest incarnation...much to my surprise.
