Today's Verse


Oldiesmann: Final update on this, for those not on Seniors and Friends... I got the car. Similar payments to what I had with the Malibu, but for only 4 years instead of 6. Dec 11 2019 1:45am

Oldiesmann: Yet another update on the car situation... Going to look at a 2012 Hyundai Sonata tomorrow (Tuesday). Hoping to get it, assuming everything looks good and I can get affordable payments Dec 03 2019 12:04am

Oldiesmann: Accident was my fault. Went through what I thought was a yellow light and it turned red before I got through the intersection. Got hit by cross traffic on the front right side Oct 26 2019 10:34am

Marilyn: So is your insurance going to foot the cost of an new car for you. was the accident the other guy's falt or yours? Oct 22 2019 11:42am

Oldiesmann: Update on the car situation... Initial estimate was that the car was repairable. However, after further inspection at a body shop, the insurance company determined that the cost of repairs is about $1200 more than the car is worth Oct 16 2019 10:28pm

Oldiesmann: For those who didn't see the message on seniorsandfriends, I was involved in an accident this morning. I'm fine and my car should be repairable, but I've had the car less than 48 hours and am not looking forward to the costs Sep 30 2019 12:33pm

Carol: Praise:  I have no cancer after undergoing a skin throat surgery  today!  Everyone was surprised - - prayers answered.   So very blessed. Aug 13 2019 5:25pm

Carol: Today is another drive to the VA.  We have found a little part that is not on the fast and furious freeway.  Whoever thinks that growth in a city is a good thing is wrong.  Two grands came for an overnight and their visits mean so much to us.  /b] Aug 07 2019 10:46am

Carol: I hope everyone is feeling well and happy.  Aug 07 2019 10:42am

JudyB: I have posted a new month! Aug 02 2019 8:05pm

Congratulations Ken on Photo of the Year. There was just something about that photo that was very special. I loved it from the beginning. Again you are very worthy of this prize!



That is a great shot Ken!  You did a great job on the composition!


Thanks Steve & Buddy.  I framed it as best as I could without trespassing, but the real challenge was keeping the camera steady.  The temperature was frigid and the wind strong, so holding the tripod down without resonating my shivering was the toughest part :)

Big congrats, Ken!
Beautiful shot. I have a shot from top of Haleakala taken under similar conditions. I know how you felt.

They say.... "that a great painting or photo tells a story"..... this not only tells the story it sends along the shivers and teeth chattering to go with it!  Great shot.  I don't think I'd like to live there, but thanks for sharing the moment and congratulations on the win!  Tisie/Shirley

Congratulations Ken.  I have always been intrigued by abandoned farmhouses, wondering how many generations lived there, what happened to the family, etc.  You have truly caught the essence of the isolation, the lifestyle, and, your description of the conditions while capturing this shot gave me shivers.  Good job!!
Search me oh God, and know my heart. Teach me and know my anxious thoughts. Look for the hurtful ways in me, and lead me in the way...everlasting.

Thanks for the memories Ken of where I grew up--precious to say the least. 


Tell me more, Delphine!  Do you know this house, or is it simply reminiscent of where you grew up?

Ken, I have often heard the comment, "That painting looks like a photograph."  But this time I must say your photograph looks like a painting!  And the signature adds to that.  Now, this is NOT a criticism!  I love the photo and it makes me want to do a painting similar!  Congratulations on your well-deserved award!
