...and they lived happily ever after. Smith & Lady: poets, artists, photographers & adventurers.
Our relationship was forged to the soundtrack of Yoko Ono's magic,
frenetic, love-laden song, "Walking On Thin Ice." ( play song )

for what’s left of long ago



My computer was in the repair shop for 10 days for a busted fan.

Replacement fan came in 5 days after I dropped it off due to the weekend slowing things down, was put in, and the hard black plastic blades on the fan pulverized to dust when it was turned on. The manufacturer’s explanation – “Oh, that happens occasionally.” I’d like to pulverize their CEO then say”Sorry dude, i do that sometimes, no biggie.”

We camped two nights at Erie Bluffs in the Lake County Metro Parks at Perry (where our closest nuclear plant is). This section of the park has but a single campsite. It resides on a bluff a hundred or so feet high on the shore overlooking Lake Erie. On our last morning there, we were sitting at the fire looking out over the lake when we saw our first flying bald eagle just above our line of sight close enough to see detail. When Lady went running I sat and watched and saw it up close twice more.

Campsite cost us $20 a night because we’re out of county . . . in county is $10 per night. And the park supplies firewood.
