Me Nailing It On Twitter Back In October

I rarely get things as right as I did above, so I do think I should be able to brag it up a little. But, yeah, I don’t care what “side” you’re on. What I care about is getting everyone who, for one reason or another, qualifies as one of MY PEOPLE though our currentContinue reading “Me Nailing It On Twitter Back In October”

I ❤️ These Boots (Solomon Shelter)

Living in Wisconsin you need a good set or three of boots. I had two sets: a heavy duty, super insulated pair for the depths of winter and a pair of of un-insulated LL Bean “duck” boots for slush/mud season. Fall of 2019 I decided I needed to up my game to a pair ofContinue reading “I ❤️ These Boots (Solomon Shelter)”

The Light Stick Over The Door Trick

Since we’re all following the mess in Texas, people are looking into preparedness stuff, and it looks like I haven’t shared this yet, I present to you: The Light Stick Over The Door Trick. Batteries and flashlights tend not to do so well in the humidity an changing temperatures of a bathroom and my bathroomContinue reading “The Light Stick Over The Door Trick”

Finally Got Some Ice On The River

Up until the Polar Vortex hit us we’d had a freakishly warm winter and no river ice, which is a two-fold bummer for me as the coming of river ice generally means wintering Bald Eagles are easier to see as they gather at places where there are openings in the river ice and because IContinue reading “Finally Got Some Ice On The River”

Sunday Tramp

Normally on a warm for Wisconsin winter’s Sunday, with a bright blue sky above, I’d be out on my bicycle. But, this winter I’m pretty into taking tramps around town and while it was a warm and sunny Sunday it was also fairly humid and I just can not stay warm in cold temps withContinue reading “Sunday Tramp”

Maximum Sunshine

I’m originally from the Seattle area, AKA the darkest place in the lower 48. Which isn’t so great when you have a fairly whopping dose of Seasonal Effective Disorder. When I decided to move out of the Pacific Northwest moving to a place with more light in the wintertime was one of my top criteria.Continue reading “Maximum Sunshine”

One Day At A Time

The sky’s dark and overcast. The weather’s cold. There’s a pandemic on. Got a friend on chemo. I don’t even want to know what our elected and economic “leaders” are up too… But, we’ll get though this thing. I’ve got chicken and rice soup on the stove, oatmeal cookies in the oven, and Charles MingusContinue reading “One Day At A Time”

Everyday Adventure- Putnam Park

I’m the kind of person that has to get outside and go for a little adventure at least every couple of days or I start to go a little crazy. It doesn’t have to be a big thing, matter of fact it’s doing lots of little things that start at my front door: just closeContinue reading “Everyday Adventure- Putnam Park”

Yes, I Actually Live In A City

Based on a lot of the photos I post you could get the impression that I live in the countryside, or maybe a small town. But, I actually live in a city. Eau Claire has a population of about 68K. Outside of the city limits things are rural or small towns, so Eau Claire servesContinue reading “Yes, I Actually Live In A City”
