Bats in the Belfry? Well...Sorta

Image
I know I'm batty but now I've found a place to hide. The Bat House... Seriously, I photographed this bat house along the river last week and now notice that these bat houses have prime real estate along the river's edge. Bat Conservation is an important part of the environment. One bat can catch hundreds of mosquitos an hour. Anything to ward off those nasty mosquitos.

Tuesday's Insecurities Revealed

I am insecure. Very insecure. When I worked at my prior job for 22 years, making great money, having insane responsibilities, managing teams of people on four continents and making split second decisions, I secretly thought that it was just a matter of time when someone would say, "What is she doing here?"

I love walls.
In the past, I have been accused of building walls around me. Walls that I like to think, protect me in the same matter as walls around a village which protects the common folk from the harsh elements of the outside world.
Walls.
I happen to think that my walls are surrounding me to protect the delicate balance of my life. Let the truth be known, there was a point in my life that I did not even acknowledge the existence of such walls until much later in life. Walls. A defense mechanism to ward off hurtful and evil things.

Over the years, I tend to take photos of really amazing drinks I've had all over the US. This one should stump most everyone. It is a margarita, yes, but is it a

There is nothing cuter than when these two pups dine on a plate of spaghetti and slurp up the same noodle. I can't wait to watch this movie with Jack. Happy Thursday, everyone!
