  • Steve and Rob are Turnbridge Point

    Steve and Rob are Turnbridge Point

    Last year, we got word that our neighboring house had been bought. The rumor was that these young gentlemen would be starting a bed and breakfast. One was a baker. “Cool” we thought. Our suppositions of the coolness paled in comparison to what has happened since. Rob and Steve are extraordinarily nice people. They have […]

  • Paper Connections : Nearby

    Paper Connections : Nearby

    As I stated in my previous Paper Connection : Faraway post, connecting with people really has made a profound difference in how I feel about myself. Even the interactions I have with the local folks as I go through my daily routine in our small town of Denton, Maryland, make me feel good about being […]

  • Progress Is A New Shopping Center

    Progress Is A New Shopping Center

    There’s more “progress” happening in our sleepy little town. Remember the Walmart they built that I never shop in? There’s more mall sprawling happening next door. Happened to meet the foreman after I came out of the Y and was taking pictures. He was nervous about me taking those pictures. Seems people taking random pictures […]

  • The Shore’s Farmlands

    The Shore’s Farmlands

    There’s a lot of farmland here on Maryland’s Eastern Shore (we are a state divided by a Bay ergo Eastern and Western). The climate allows for abundant and beautiful produce for its growing seasons. The Shore’s money was made in a canning industry boom in the early part of the 20th century.  I enjoy watching […]

  • Downtown Denton’s Window Decorations

    Downtown Denton’s Window Decorations

    Once upon a time, in 2010, Downtown Denton, Maryland needed a sprucing up for their upcoming Spring Gala Event to be held there in May out on the street. My friend Danielle was asked by the Arts Council lady Marina, to do something with the mostly empty windows in the store fronts on our Main […]

  • Summerfestive


    Every year, we are lucky enough to have the Summerfest family festival explode in our front yard. This year’s theme was Cruisin’ Back to the 50’s. Booth owners (non-prof) all try to outdo each other with their themed decorations. My husband and I were asked by the lady running the show to help hang ten […]

  • A Stroll in Pictures

    A Stroll in Pictures

    Fiona and I often take strolls about town. We go for the air, to drop off a library movie that will be late in ten minutes, or go for our weekend box o’ Wine. When I intentionally take my camera, I often feel like I’m on a picture-taking safari. Here’s my pictures of our little […]

  • Architecture Shots

    Architecture Shots

    I have a fascination for architecture. When I used to ride the public transportation to my downtown job and back, I loved laying my head against the window and staring up at all the gargoyles on the old Baltimore buildings. So much texture and history and diversity in the buildings we see. Here’s a smidge […]

  • And Then It’s Done

    And Then It’s Done

    As a child, I can remember feeling such an incredible feeling of grief and let down when the last present was opened. All that savored anticipation had come to an end. Fin. Final. No finale. In my adulthood, I feel differently. I am glad to be off. Off work. Off the stage. On switched to […]

  • Small Business Saturday Y’all

    Small Business Saturday Y’all

    I know the joy of opening and the sorrow of closing my own small business. She was named Bally Eden and I loved her like a child. People coming in and looking around meant the world to me. And when they bought something? I was thrilled. So when I say “Shop local”, it comes from […]
