Insight with Good Fences


A stroll through town.
A few fences
And a few critters along the way.

Lions in stone or alive are always
Sharp, shrewd and smart.

A place where lions watch over all.

"A moment's insight is sometimes worth a life's experience."
Oliver Wendell Holmes

"A man's mind is stretched by a new idea or sensation,
and never shrinks back to it's former dimensions."
Oliver Wendell Holmes

What once was Lakeville's All Saints Catholic Church

Is now our Lakeville Area Arts Center

Visiting the memorial garden at McGuire Middle school where plaques, birdhouses, benches, newly planted trees and pavers commemorate those who have died. In honor of teachers as well as students.

I took this photo a couple of years ago,
 but it's a perfect photo to remind us that 
it's tick season once again.  

Don't put off your tick checks,
 especially when romping anywhere outside.
