This week, dear reader (or readers, if there happens to be more than one of you), allow me to once again wander around, with a little bit of this, and a little bit of that... ...autumn "officially" arrived on Sept. 22... ...that being said, goodness, gracious, seems like it's been way too hot for...

About all you can do is laugh, and shake your head. And the laughter is not is a "ha, ha, ha" sort of way. It would be more of a gallows humor kind of chuckle. Folks who read this publication on a regular basis, and we are truly glad that you do read this publication on a regular basis, no doubt...
So, you're making plans for a big weekend. You're invited to dinner. A good time will be had by all. Unless, you happen to be dinner. Such was the story for a poor bug which paid a visit to a screen door at our humble abode last Saturday evening. Our weekend also was highlighted by the...

This week, a few random observations and thoughts, as deadline rapidly approached...oops, there it went... ...so many special, and spectacular, events unfolded during the past week or so on the Journey Through Life... ...I couldn't help but ponder the vast spectrum of wonders Mother Nature has...
A rare and never before seen total eclipse of the sunflower unfolded last Saturday morning. These exclusive images captured the phenomonomonomon, which likely will never be seen again...Photoshop truly is a wonderful toy...um...tool...
The morning commute on Wednesday, August 16, along old U.S. Route 51 between Cobden and metropolitan Anna was blessedly quiet, uneventful and almost free of any other traffic. On the journey to start another day of adventures at The Paragraph Factory, I couldn't help but think about what the...
Normally, I don't like to do this sort of thing, just 'cause the critter in the pic is ours. The pic was taken during one of his calmer moments.
Finally. A reason for yours truly to love cats. Or, to at least tolerate them. Even Bob. Maybe... Actually, I might have two reasons to tolerate felines. First of all: did you know that Aug. 8 was International Cat Day.  Yup. And I missed it. Maybe I missed all of the International Cat Day...
Two bees, or not two bees...that would be the question. However, William Shakespeare was not around when the picture was taken, mainly 'cause he's dead, except maybe for that new show on TNT, which I've only seen once. By accident. There was no mention of bees, in any numbers or any kind, on the show.
What happens when yours truly has too much time on his hands? To tell you the truth, yours truly does not have too much time on his hands very often. However, last week, one thing kind of led to another, and pretty soon...well, you're about to read what happened... First up, we had another Chuck...
