I’m Baaack (As the World Turns)

I’m baaack and damn glad too.

I say that with a smile.

The adventure was certainly enjoyable. It was entertaining and enlightening…  and what’s another word that starts with e? 


Yeah! Well, that’s all screwed up. Can you say Mal de debarquement syndrome ? MDDS is a type of vertigo that [rarely] occurs after stepping off a cruise ship

Whew! It is hard to type while hanging onto (or on to) the arm of a chair — it feels like a fun-house up in here!

So as the world turns I have summed up my trip with a poem and pictures.

I love water…


and sunsets…

and leisurely trips.

And I love being on land

 more than  living on ships.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Fleeting


We went fishing Saturday and my oh my how the time flew by.

Okay the truth is the guys fished while we (my granddaughter and moi) took pictures. We of course caught a lot more of what we were after. As a matter of fact the two of us snagged nearly two hundred shots yet three men with six tackle boxes and four rods couldn’t catch a single fish! Not even a catfish! In a lake as large as Tawakoni that takes some real lack of skill. 😉

My husband says I shouldn’t poke fun being as I have a serious case of lack-a-jerk. True, the fish are usually too fast for me but a desperate fisherman resorting to the ritual of the frog dive, that I can catch.


The dive left the fish laughing so hard they couldn’t bite. Have you ever tried to laugh and eat at the same time? It is hard to do. It is hard being a fish, I understand these things. It’s also illegal to be on the water at night without the proper lights (which we had left in the truck) so we turned starboard heading to shore and watched the sun set on another beautiful day… another fleeting moment in time.

See how time flies…

How time flies

How time flies

Weekly Photo Challenge: Culture

The word culture can conjure so many images it boggles the mind. Defining it as beliefs, principles, arts, ethnicity and (may I add) bacteria that reside in yogurt and petri dishes. That doesn’t make choosing a photograph any easier for me.  I can’t zoom in close enough on the yogurt to get a shot of live cultures and petri dishes… well they are just plain nasty.

This week’s challenge is hosted by Aaron Joel Santos.
