Friday Mish Mash

Greetings from the Hermit Writer. Because of the heat, and Irma, and her debris, I haven't been on a PBWA (photography by walking around). So I thought I would share some old favorites. Hope you enjoy.

Arguing mates.

Irma Is Coming

Last time I posted, we expected Hurricane Irma to track up the East Coast of Florida. We woke this morning to a West Coast track...right over my home of Tampa. As my neighbor said, "Irma is going to be redrawing this part of Florida," and there will be a lot of us without homes in 30 hours or so.

I put my foot down and sent Dina to stay with friends on the East Coast. I'm hunkering down since not much I can do with two fifty pound dogs. I look up at the giant oaks surrounding my house, and I'm not embarrassed to say I'm worried.

Maybe pray for us, if you believe.

So here are some snaps from a paddle I took on Monday

Love the deadwood poking out.
