Of Mice And Men

TO’s school puts together a pretty good show for their annual day. The stage, the lighting, the whole shebang is something I look forward to each year. And it’s actually rather superlative given that they have to co-ordinate with kids ranging from kindergartners to 5th graders. This  year’s extravaganza was their rendition of the Pied…

Buddha Had A Bulldog

Note: This post has been patiently waiting to see the time of day. It did not get it’s moment in the sunny blogosphere due to a nasty hand injury which prevented me from doing anything else but insulting the world at large. Read on below. Or did he? It’s one of those things we may…

9

Red and I completed 9 years in our parenting journey. They have been a lot of things but never dull.  We were handed a longish and skinny baby who filled out quickly enough and we couldn’t stop nom-noming on his cheeks, his nose and all his little limbs. You have never been digustingly mushy and…

1998

5 girls met. Talked. Slowly at first and then incessantly. They sat in the last benches of most of their classes. Had some adventures. Loads of giggles, some fights. Went through a bunch of guys. Made other gal pals and 20 years later are still around in a pretty good capacity given that work, home,…

A Peek At My Photoblog#2

Deer don’t necessarily fascinate me…seen too many of them over the years but the opportunity to photograph them at leisure hasn’t always cropped up either. This is how close I got to them this time. And while it isn’t as close as I’d wanted it to be, it’ll do for now.

Glorious Sunset

It’s not nearly as interesting as the Rear Window but it was still one helluva sight…these are the original images without any enhancements done.

For The Sake Of Venus…Mars Endures

Spent the better part of this morning following the antics of the wild peacocks which live in the large tract of open area opposite our home. Usually I’m all about taking pictures, editing them and then just letting the wild life be; but today was tres interesting mainly because I witnessed some really unusual (for…

The Apartment Turns A Year Old

We will be completing a year in the new place or in the “new house” as MLM still calls it. He’s very clear it isn’t ‘home’ but the new house but I know it’s become home for us all. I took the longest to settle in of the three of us. Red and the brat…
