Butterfly show with the family at Krohn Conservatory. I kind of wish they had “expired” specimens on display for photos, because these suckers are hard to pin down* and photograph.

Double birthday celebration

Friday, May 23, 2014

Big sky country, Ohio style

My sister and her husband came into town to help celebrate my great-niece and mom’s birthday. The weather cooperated beautifully. We grilled out. Strolled around the farm. Flew kites. Jumped on trampolines. Pet dogs. Pestered the turkeys. And capped it off with some homemade schnecken (Virginia bakery recipe).

A wonderful day.

Parkers Woods

A hike, this time by myself. Where I find that I can traverse the trail in Northside in half an hour — twice as fast as when I go with friends. Mind you, we gab and smell the roses so to speak. Which is not a euphemism, but a stretch of the phrase as there are no roses, but lots of lovely things to admire nonetheless. (Mostly green. Lovely greens.)

Stricker's Grove

Found a shortcut on the way home from the studio to get to the bike trail at Miami Whitewater Forest. Found this place called Stricker’s Grove along the way. It’s a small amusement park called Stricker’s Grove. It’s available for rent. Now I’m just trying to think of a way to justify that, because having a rollercoaster at a get-together would be awesome.

First ride on the “road” bike was awesome. I’m a fan of paved trails without car traffic.

City Flea

City Flea. May 17, 2014.


Mental note: 1.) Ask Zan what a cup of tea and wheat penny means. 2.) Run idea by her about a new photo book called “Zanthology.”
