today in my neck of the woods

It is rainy here in Kentucky. It has been rainy on and off ( more on than off) for a while now. Normally, we would be glad of this, but I have to wonder if this means a long, cold, and white winter. Now, don’t get me wrong, i LOVE snow, alot. But when one lives on the top of a mountain, even a small one like mine, getting up and down in the snow is just about impossible. But it is nice to take pictures of  the snow in the trees and fields, so I will be happy if its a snowy winter.

I am going to send this blog to my son Stephen who is the Navy and stationed in Japan. I hope he will add his two cents to this once in a while. Maybe he can give us the details of what it is like to be in the Navy serving on board one of the best ships our Navy has, the USS Kitty Hawk. We’ll see.

Until next we meet, have a great night all.


Link added

Ok, I figured out (thanks to the wonderful help guides here at wordpress 🙂 how to add the link to the blog I mentioned. I hope that others will read this article and add their comments, as I am trying to learn as much as I can about this subject. I and others like me, need guidance more than ever.

what i hope this blog will do……

What do most people expect when they put up a blog? I am not sure, however I do know what I hope will happen with this blog. I very much hope that it will help me to either deal with not being where I so long to be, or it helps me “get” to where I wish to be. Where do I want to be now, this minute? Home. Where is home? Santa Cruz, CA.

I am hoping that this blog will help me get there, honestly. I am not sure how yet, but I keep hearing how the net makes all things possible, and so I hold on to my hope like a drowning man clings to a life preserver. Are there any others out there in the world, who are for what ever reason cutoff from their homes, from where they most desire to be? I hope I hear from you , if your out there. I hope I hear from those who have been exiled for what ever reason, from the place that makes them most happy; and have made it back home. Let me hear from anyone , if you have any ideas or suggestions. Or just have a means to cope with what seems to be an insurmountable obstacle to me.


Well, we here in kentucky as sure glad to see that the rains are almost out of the state. Its been scary to see the water running like it has been. I am south of Lexington, so its been a bit better here. But in Lexington, it was bad for a while. As of this am, the waters have gone down which is great. At last news coverage, we had almost 7 inches in some parts of Lexington! We all saw how fast the waters came up in New Orleans last year, yet it still was shocking to see it here.

I am still working on getting photographs of the area I am in, I think that this area of Kentucky has been under represented on the net, and its time to let it shine.

More later……..
