I have been nosy curious, every since I was born.

My dad used to call me nib nose, because I always wanted to know what was going on. I wanted to be a part of something, to feel kinship with those I cared about.

When your left unknowing, you are left out of the group.

So,  join the group and answer my Friday nosy curious question.

‘They’ say the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, but what’s the way to yours?

Hard economic times have hit us all, but never so much as the small business.


This post is in memory of one such business, The Serenity Tea House, who quietly closed it’s doors yesterday.

Jeannie hired the boy about a year and a half ago.

It was his first job, and he was so happy to have it.

Family came from far away to enjoy her sandwiches.

And I, personally, have eaten gallons and gallons of house soup.

My heart goes out to Jeannie and to all those who have been forced to close their businesses.

Thank you Jeannie for giving this small community a quiet place to sit and enjoy a peaceful lunch.  I will truly miss it.

Dear Nikon,

Thank you for sending my beloved, my precious, my camera back in such a timely manner.

Great job on fixing the connector pins.  My lens fits perfectly now.  What did you do with all the flour and sugar and schmears on my lens.   It looks brand new!

There is no dust on my camera either.   Wow!

I put my memory card and freshly charged battery in.   I was so happy.

I began to take pictures of my girl when…


You broke my camera?!

Not cool, Nikon!   Not cool.


One VERY unhappy customer

PS.  I want my rubber eye piece back too.


For those who have already asked, and those that will, I called them IMMEDIATELY, and gave them some ‘kindly’ what for.   They are sending me a shipping label, and it is getting repaired….that, or they will give me a new one.   I will insist on it.
