This fog seems to be shooting up like a wave in the ocean but not curling.   Interesting find!

July 17, 2017 - Thinking Outside the Box - Duck Xing - Indiana





Our son, (Johnny), our grandson (Alex), my husband (John) and I headed toward for South Bend, Indiana to look and perhaps purchase a Ford F150 with an 8 foot bed.  While they were driving the truck and making a decision if the truck was in good condition and doing paperwork to purchase the truck, this is what I saw Duck Xing.   I've never seen this sign before.  Have you?

July 5, 2017 - Thinking Outside the Box - Fireworks on Land








Greetings and Salutations!    These weeds growing alongside a railroad track intrigued me because they appear to be fireworks on land instead of  in the sky.   Nature always surprises me.

June 28, 2017 - Outdoor Wednesday - #442 - Lake Michigan near the Chicago Yacht Club - Quote - Miguel Ruiz - Soul, Heart and Truth

Lake Michigan near the Yacht Club, Chicago, IL.

Quote:

"What in your life is calling you,
when all the noise is silenced,
the meetings adjourned,
the lists laid aside,
and the wild iris blooms,
by itself,
in the dark forest...
What still pulls on your soul?

Go inside and listen to your body,
because your body will never lie to you.
Your mind will play tricks
but the way you feel in your heart,
in your guts
is the truth."
~ Miguel Ruiz

Foggy day at Lake Michigan, Bahai Temple, Wilmette, IL




A rainy day.



A rainy day, picking up my SUV at the dealer because the wiper motor was recalled.

Today our first born son was born 53 years ago.   We can't believe that we are parents to a person that old. He must be catching up with us.  ROFL....!

Happy Holiday!

Thinking Outside the Box - Untitled - Quote - Nate Burkus - Wonder




Untitled: 3282017053B

My husband has neuropathy in his feet and has unbearable pain.  Once a year, he has an appointment with Debra E. Young D.P.M, 2732 North Southport Avenue, Chicago, Illinois - (773) 327-0006.  Dr. Young then recommends my husband to go to therapy at Peak Balance, 3545 Lake Avenue, Suite 103, Wilmette, Illinois, (847) 251-2028.

After the doctor's appointment, I usually have a shooting fest.  Here is what I found this year.  Enjoy!
