Don’t Make Me Leave Hastings

Just an hour ago, the sun was shining on my back while I painted the window frames. In the distance I could see the fog coming our way off Lake Superior and wished I’d started painting earlier. Now we’re enveloped and I hope it… Continue Reading “Don’t Make Me Leave Hastings”

I’m Berry Well, Thank You, and You?

A key thing about being a regular blogger is sometimes not caring if anyone reads what you write. That’s my number one message tonight. My second message has to do with blueberries. Specifically, disabusing people of the notion that picking wild blueberries is a… Continue Reading “I’m Berry Well, Thank You, and You?”

Winter Lovers

We weren’t sure what we were looking for but we decided it wasn’t in Arizona. Our plan was to head there this morning in our truck with our two dogs to meander around and maybe see some baseball at spring training. And then just… Continue Reading “Winter Lovers”

Saturday on the Porch in the U.P.

When we got here two days ago, the chairs had blown every which way on the porch. We were lucky one hadn’t taken flight and gone through a window. Our canoe was lifted off the old bedspring that serves as its resting spot on… Continue Reading “Saturday on the Porch in the U.P.”

The Trip Home through Hudson

The Western Auto Store is now a Chinese restaurant and not a very good one from the looks on people’s faces. Bad meals had been eaten there.  We stopped the car for just a minute but when I got out, I decided against a… Continue Reading “The Trip Home through Hudson”

Our Pure Michigan

At first the lake was perfectly still, a set for a canoeing commercial, and we glided along like people who lived in a tent most of the time and traveled on foot instead of who we are, people who live in a house and… Continue Reading “Our Pure Michigan”

I’m Berry Well, Thank You, and You?

A key thing about being a regular blogger is sometimes not giving a shit if anyone reads what you write. That’s my number one message tonight. My second message has to do with blueberries. Specifically, disabusing people of the notion that picking wild blueberries… Continue Reading “I’m Berry Well, Thank You, and You?”
