Go Outside - and Good Fences

Good morning on this sunny Emancipation Day in the United States.
So in honor of that, and also that your taxes aren't officially due until the 18th of April this year-

let's all


Can you spot the barbed-wire fence here? The old grape vine is trying to conceal it.

"In the presence of nature, a wild delight runs through the man,
in spite of real sorrows."
Ralph Waldo Emerson



It's been a busy work week, besides celebrating hubby's birthday on the 12th and our anniversary on the 14th. (He's already had 3 birthday celebrations) and our oldest son and his family are making us Beer Can Chicken or Juicy Lucy burgers on the grill tonight!

It's truly spring here, for the moment anyway.
So if you're wondering about my next few blogs-
read on.
(hey I have three glorious days off in a row from work!)


Like he famously shares Florida for us,

I'll share a bit of Minnesota.
Hoping to catch just as many cool captures as Mac does.

Not to forget fences too.

Only the shadow knows
who this is.

"Forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet
 and winds long to play with your hair." - Kahli Gibran

Look there he is again.

He sure does get around, 

Here's a hint of what's coming in my next post.

Minneapolis, Minnesota

"We shape our buildings; thereafter they shape us.
Winston Churchill

Enjoy your day, take good care of you and see you all back here tomorrow!
