Today is another look at my town, a colorful look. I’m going to try to make this a regular Tuesday feature. We shall see how that goes.

So, last night I’m washing my hair. I’ve got the radio on loudly so that I can hear over the water, (classic rock station-if you’re wondering) and I am hanging over the side of the tub soakin’ the hair. My sinuses are running full force towards gravity (I’m upside down at this point) and I hear a little rappin’ at the door. “What is it?” *muffled words in response to my inquiry. I don’t know who this is, but I suspect my nine year old. “Honey, I have the radio on, the water running, and I’m under the faucet. If you’ve got something to say, either come in or wait until I’m finished.” I begin to wonder when my children will ever develop some common sense. O_o Later in the evening I was browsing the blogs and came upon this story on Michael’s photo blog. http://www.mlpinxit.com/index.php?showimage=66 I hold out no hope for the immediate future. No hope for the semi-long term future either. All the more reason to not drop the ball on this parenting thing. I have to release these children out into society some day.

It looks like you live in a very charming place. The first picture reminds me of my husband. He love reading realestate mags from every place we go. I just recently had a talk with a bunch of moms and we were discussing common sense. Is it taught or are born with it?

Your ‘no-nonsense’ images are so refreshing after all the manufactured stuff I see - and publish. A welcome breath of country air.

How interesting. Every town seems to have those real estate magazine dispensers. It makes one wonder how many people actually pick the FREE real estate magazines while making a life-changing decision to purchase a home.
