I got back from a trip to Hawaii a few days ago.  If anyone is interested, the pictures are here:

This evening on the Ohio

Posted on March 31, 2015 at 5:42pm 8 Comments

It's been a beautiful day today - my almond and peach are blooming - I decided to walk across the old railroad bridge that's been converted into a walking and cycling bridge.

There were a lot of people who had the same idea -…

And another - Suicide's Auditions

Another one that has always stuck with me -

This one is from Mean Mr. Mustard.  Chuck, I hope you get to move all your posts over.

(I had to delete many of the comments to get it under the 100,000 character limit.  It's a stroll down memory lane seeing all the names of former members.)

There have been many good posts over the years, but this is one I always remember.

"I wasn't trying to do panoramic.  It's just whatever the camera settings on the OnePlus 1 were doing.  Since I rarely use the phone for pictures, I don't think I've ever fiddled with the settings."

"I don't often use my phone for taking pictures, but I took this and a few others this morning - The structure on the right is a railroad bridge built in the late 1800s.  On the left, the upper gates of the McAlpine Dam in Louisville."

Thanks Mark!  Right now I need a Techie to help navigate - hopefully one not let go from OS!

I left my two cent comment behind your two cents on my blog.

Hi Mark, Yep, I'm finally here and so glad to be able to stay in touch with so many great people. I hope that I'll be able to participate a lot more than I have lately.  Thanks for your kind words about my banner - it was my idea but the boyfriend drew it and helped me immensely in getting it online.

Thanks for your welcome, Mark. I just arrived here, made my first psot today, and am still learning to navigate the site, but it looks beautiful and seems easy to use.

Thanks Mark. I am royally pissed off about it at the moment, but I hear you.

Mark--

Today was the day I finally gave up on OS--I'm a little slow on the uptake.

I shut out the lights before I left.

Thanks for stopping by. Nice pictures.

Thanks for the welcome, Mark :)

Sometimes I feel like an old soul. I really do feel we live on in some way, but not in any religious way, but a spiritual way. I think you have one too. I have most of my stuff on Readers. I was also on OurSalon before, but got a little mad and quit OS and this place at the same time. My wife stopped me. I have another story being published in Scene4 Magazine in October that I am really buzzed about. I'll be sure to send you the link. Thanks again for you kind words.
