Moon Sprite

The moon through the clouds looks like a hazy ball as our weather changes… It feels just right  (a little spooky) as we approach all hallows eve!

My woodpecker problem


image

This little bird has done quite a bit of damage in just a week.  In a week he has made a whole right through the siding board on this side of the house and is working on some others on the other side. I’ve got someone coming out to see what I can do…. They are protected, so you need to make sure that you don’t injure them.

A sad day at Oklahoma State today


image

Another sad day for the Oklahoma State University family.  Our hearts are heavy today for all those impacted at the Home Coming Parade by this event in Stillwater.  Our prayers and thoughts are with the families of the killed and injured.

Tulsa Time

Sometimes you have to be reminded that you are living on Tulsa Time :).   I do miss it at times.

Working class…


image

A few years ago when I went back to Oklahoma State for homecoming, a fellow has this old orange truck with a complete OSU bar in the back.  But the truck is what struck me the most.  A working class track still on the job after all these years. It was not “restored”, but more preserved… with renwed purpose and second a second chance at a more leasuerly life.  We’ll cared for and loved, a treasure in time.

Art installation in St. Clair


image

In the summer these are water fountains.  The round area at the top is a light for the evening. The red area is the drain pan.   I think these are supposed to be like the bow of ships passing on the river in the background.  This is on the border with Canada (the far bank of the river is Canada)

Although it looks warm in the picture, it was about 40 degrees out and a short time after this we had a snow shower!   We had a great lunch in the pie shop and watched the big freighters run on the river going to Lake Huron or Lake Erie.

Power failure

Thought this was interesting .. an old power plant being raised on the St. Clair river.
