Looking Forward

July is wrapping up fast, as all months and years do.
It's been a wild ride with rain and heat, but we've survived gratefully and I'm hopeful for August.
For now...

Gifts From Way Far Away...

An offering of fine poetry and pleasing imagery from a a good friend and brother far off on the other side of the earth. He's a man for which our family is happy as punch to have as an inspiration and creative influence non-parleil...

Namaste, Uncle Weed, as ever!

Hot a dry again, these days. Hot and dry.

Pioneer Day Fireman's Breakfast 2018

Getting ready for and eating the Fireman's Breakfast.
Spring City is a fine place to live and learn.

Bountiful Handcarts. Parade, at Least. If Not Lots of Handcarts.

Up to Bountiful for the dinner and parade.
Endless good it does us.
Thanks to the family, both here and up north.

July Skies, Continued

I sure take lots of photos of the sky and clouds.
There're many reasons for that.

Oh. And lots of photos of her.
Also. Reasons.

A week of plants, fish, bugs, and good sunsets.

Good Hope

What a day. It's amazing how a little water on the ground and hope of water for the future will do for a psyche.
Tea ceremony for the family- dang it's always good to have these fluids around...

Changes, indeed.
Not lots, but it's a start.
A good little start.

Water Sounds

At least there's some water in the barrel-
there seems to be some changes on the southern horizon, though. Monsoon sometime soon, hopefully...

Not a lot of fireworks to be had today; too dry and not much of the old pocketchange required. 
Hot and enjoyable to be with the family though.

A Piece of July Sky

There ya go. What I often look up to see.
When I'm lucky, which is much of the time at this time of day.

Farewell to the Grand Lady

We were tasked with saying goodbye to Mimi today, it's wasn't the best thing to do on a beautiful and cool late June day, but it was what it was.
All involved did a splendid job of what had to be done in the way that they needed to do it.
That's about it.

Late into June

A very long day of light and shenanigans.

Some work was done, as well.

Up the Canyon

Sometimes it seems like this is where we, or I, always am.
Sometimes that's true, but not as much as I'd like it to be.

Up at the Cabin and in the Swing of Summer

It's official summer now.
The kids are all over the place; at Birch Creek Ranch, on fires, at Das Café, running around, having fun and working their fool head off.

It's fun but sometimes I miss them.

Father's Day 2018

Road-kill waffles, a visit to another good local father at work on his house, and time with the kids at the cabin.

I do enjoy Father's Day, and it's because everyone around me is stellar.

Friday, June 15, 2018


Still working on presentation and ideas for decals, both for fun and for, um, business reasons.

A long-term project, in both manners.

Also, Hyrum is a swell artist.

Ad-Hoc slackline and Fire Nimbus

There's a big old fire over the mountain, originally a 'controlled burn'  but now officially an 'out of control wildfire'. Nutty humans.

Meanwhile, we horse around like there's nothing wrong in the world...

Grandpa B on the Wing

My Grandpa up on that Me262, somewhere in southern Germany, maybe during the last stages of the war, maybe after.
That's the stuff that remains hard to tell after the makers and participants in history pass into the great unknown, but I still think it's all too hard to deal with sometimes.
Here's to all those for whom only we, the living, can speak.
