Monday came and went with a blink of an eye! Since it was a holiday, of sorts (Columbus Day), we took a day trip up to the High Peaks area of the Adirondack Mountain Range in New York State. Autumn is glowing in all its splendor there. I’ll have more photos and some interesting stories […]

I don’t often tinker with my photos, besides cropping and sharpening the image. But we took so many stunning images of the Adirondack Mountains when we traveled there two weeks ago… I was inspired!

They Have a Word For People Like Me: Sucker!!

Maybe it’s in my face– that “look” that tells the street hawkers that I’m an easy one. Or maybe it’s in my demeanor, the way I walk that perhaps oozes motherly gullibility. Or maybe it’s my Upstate New York accent- we’re all hicks up here, lol. Whatever it is, I am a MAGNET for street […]
