H. Cyrus Farnum

I was recently reminded of an old painting that came to us from Jane's family. It shows a cabin in Grace, Mississippi. Finally I was able to make out the signature and discerned that is was painted by a well known artist - H. Cyrus Farnum. He did most of his work in Rhode Island. If I would have realized that before our recent trip there we might have looked for some other examples of his work.

(I wish I could take credit for the shot. I snagged it from Heather's Facebook, but did tweak it a bit.) I'll try to have more pictures before long.

Photo Enhancement

I used this photo of Peggy's Point Lighthouse, Peggy's Cove, Nova Scotia, that I took in September of '08:
I played with it and came up with this:
I think it has an old-time picture postcard feel.

Spencer was nosing what appeared to be a leaf - it jumped and startled him! I Googled it - found out it's a katydid.

Summer Visitor

This lady stopped by this afternoon. We haven't seen many of her kind recently - they may have been here but we didn't see them. Often when we see one there are others nearby, but this time only one. We see more in the colder months when they have to travel further to forage.

This morning our neighbor John Chandler called to say he was smoking some chickens and would we like one, so after a bad joke I said of course and tonight that's what we had for supper!
Tonight we ate half - absolutely wonderful! We were able to restrain ourselves so, tomorrow - the other half.
Thanks, John!

Independence Day

It ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires, and illuminations, from one end of this continent to the other, from this time forward forever more.

I've walked by him hundreds of times and today finally decided to take a photo and put him in the blog. Jane made him back in the late sixties of Texas limestone. (His eyes were pencil enhanced by young Weddles back in the eighties.)
