christmas: Put On Your Tophats, It's A White Christmas! - 12/25/17 07:45 AM
 
The snow rolled in late Christmas Eve, coating southwestern Ohio with a couple of inches of white powder.  The snow was the clingy variety that sticks to chain link, tree trunks and everything else it touches, providing a fresh view of nature this Christmas morning.  The sky is now clear and the sun is bright, and our coneflowers have on their "tophats"!
From our house to yours, we hope you have a Merry Christmas!

christmas: Merry Christmas 2016 - 12/25/16 05:55 AM

  By now on the East Coast the kids have probably been up and stirring for hours!  Our furry ones stayed quiet, no 6 a.m. demands to open their presents now!
Here in southwest Ohio the weather is reasonably warm and there's no snow.
It will be a quiet day here today with phone calls to make to wish Merry Christmas to our families, although in my case we had Christmas a few days early during my visit to West Virginia.
We hope that everyone has the opportunity to spend time with friends and family and if you must travel, we pray for God's … (16 comments)

christmas: For Me, Christmas Lights Are Nice, But There's More To It - 12/22/14 05:04 AM
For Me, Christmas Lights Are Nice, But There's More To It I love Christmas lights as much as anyone, but you could take away all the lights and it's still Christmas if we're with family.  Most years that's meant a visit to the eastern mountains of West Virginia.  Now retired, my mom's roots run deep in these mountains, with a small town called Cass as her birthplace and Bartow (about 15 miles away) now my parent's retirement spot.  Generations of her family have called these beautiful mountains home. 
The Greenbrier River runs through Pocohantas County and for many years lumber … (18 comments)

Is Your Christmas Trash Advertising To Thieves?

And how could we tell?  The residents were basically advertising their Christmas haul!  Since today was the first scheduled post-Christmas trash day, the residents had all the evidence we needed right out at the curb! Now we'd … (34 comments)
