A Hunt for Color

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Ward County Notary Services

On today's photo walk Timmothy and I set out to capture some color. What better place, especially during North Dakota's winter months, to look for color then a schools playground equipment.

Carol dressed for the occasion. I asked her to wave so she wouldn't be to perfectly camouflaged. 

Where is Buddy?

White wall, red stripe, red jacket. It didn't work out quite as well as I had imagined.

Waiting for the Boys Of Summer...

it's going to be a long wait. I do like the astroturf installed at Corbett field a few years ago. When it's not covered by snow it gives the illusion of warmth.

I hope everyone is enjoying the weekend. We have had pretty nice weather up here (for ND in late November). Carol and Timmothy have been busy decorating the house for Christmas and I've been doing a few little chores and relaxing.

Roger that Buzz Mackintosh . One of my favorite signs of spring is hearing the crack of the bat across the street from my home as the Minot State Beavers and the semi-pro Sabre Dogs team get ready for another season.

Hello Carol - one need not hunt too long to find all sorts of color surrounding us.  It can be found in nature and in things enhanced by humankind.  Remain alert and continue to be amazed.

Good morning Bob. Judging from how bundled up your wife is in those photos, you and I may have a different view of good weather. Then again you are used to it! Enjoy your day.

It's wonderful that you had such a willing participant! Carol looks like she was having fun as well.

One thing that surprised me about my part of Montana is the winter color. In NY it was always brown. Brown snow, brown trees, brown ground. blech. Here there are so many pine/fir trees that mostly everywhere you look is green all year round. I like that!

Good morning Bob - I wouldn't be surprised if it were warmer this weekend in Minot than here in Armonk.  It is cold and windy here.

Never been to Monot.  May need to make plans soon.  Maybe summertime though.   Enjoy your Sunday, rest up and be ready to support your favorite NFL  Team today. A new week starts tomorrow.

Good morning, Bob... how clever of you (and Carol!). My Christmas decorating was finished yesterday and now all I have to worry about is the hundreds of mailings I need to do during December.

Thank you Michael Jacobs . Once our blanket of snow arrives, and it will arrive, it may be harder to find a variety of color in any one spot but we will keep hunting for it.

Kat Palmiotti while pines are my least favorite tree at least, as you say, they do give us some color. BTW are you familiar with Tamerac pines? They are really cool.

Thank you Brian England . The weekend has had a few enjoyable moments like those captured above but I am currently experiencing a lot of pain and am hoping to receive an MRI this week to find out what is going on.
