Somewhere Over the Rainbow

Somewhere over the rainbow way up high There’s a land that I heard of once in a lullaby  Somewhere over the rainbow skies are blue And the dreams that you dare to dream really do come true. Our last evening in the Tetons, we…

Far From the Madding Crowd

Thomas Hardy’s Victorian era novel with this title portrays the main character, Bathsheba, and her life on a Dorset farm far from the “hustle and bustle” of London.  The term originated in the solemn 16th century poem by Thomas Gray, “Elegy written in a…

Food for Thought

We’ve always enjoyed eating out.  When Jim and I first met, one of our favorite things to do on the weekend was to eat out for breakfast.  Our first year together, we lived along the Brandywine Creek at the corner of Rt. 100 and…

Path of Totality in the Tetons

Oh my! Time flies so fast!  It’s already almost mid-July and there’s so much that we have done since the last time I posted.  While riding bikes today along the Pilgrim Creek area of the park, I was thinking about the theme for my…

Things that Go Beep in the Night

I told you I would be re-visiting the use of book titles for my blog post headings!  Albeit, a slightly modified version from the original “Things That Go Bump in the Night”.  And, no this is not a modern-day RV ghost story.  It is…

Tucson Rodeo Season

 I was enjoying a leisurely first cup of coffee this morning, and looking up the weather for Tucson, Arizona online.  An announcement on the weather site caught my eye.  The advertisement was warning folks to dress warm for the 92nd Annual Tucson Rodeo Parade…

The Things They Carried….

I know.  Sooner or later, it was bound to happen.  At some point, I was destined to use a book title for a blog post.  I just can’t help myself – I’m a librarian.  It won’t be the last time, I’m sure! 🙂 I…
