Cape Cod Photos For Watery Wednesday

FROM LANCASTER,OHIO TO CAPE COD ABOUT 800 MILES. WE DROVE IT IN ONE LONG DAY.

The Old Man and The Sea

“But, he thought, I keep them with precision. Only I have no luck any more. But who knows? Maybe today. Every day is a new day. It is better to be lucky. But I would rather be exact. Then when luck comes you are ready.”

“I must not think nonsense, he thought. Luck is a thing that comes in many forms and who can recognize her? I would take some though in any form and pay what they asked. I wish I could see the glow from the lights, he thought. I wish too many things. But that is the thing I wish for now. He tried to settle more comfortably to steer and from his pain he knew he was not dead.”

image

"Don’t be silly," he said aloud. "And keep awake and steer. You may have much luck yet."
"I’d like to buy some if there’s any place they sell it," he said.
What could I buy it with? he asked himself. Could I buy it with a lost harpoon and a broken knife and two bad hands?
"You might," he said. "You tried to buy it with eighty-four days at sea. They nearly sold it to you too."

image

The Old Man and the Sea is a novella written by American author Ernest Hemingway, written in 1951 during his visit in Cuba and published in 1952. It was the last major work of fiction to be produced by Hemingway and published in his lifetime.

The Cultural Center Of Cape Cod

 In Lancaster, Ohio we have the Glass Museum which is located in and old bank building with a vault exhibit. In Cape Cod their Cultural Center is in an old bank building with their very own “vault exhibit.”  “THAT’S MY WORLD POST” 

  Alison Krauss is an American bluegrass/country singer and fiddle player. CLICK on photo and listen to some of her music (opens in a new window). I think my favorite is “MILES TO GO.”

“The Bass River Savings bank is a historic brick structure built in the 1930s. The interior features exquisite woodwork and trim detail, a beautiful main lobby area with 23-foot-high ceilings and private meeting rooms and offices.” CLICK to visit their website

Linda and I were in Cape Cod to attend a wedding late on a Sunday evening. Fortunately, the Cultural Center opened at 12:00 noon giving us the chance to visit. Of course a bank building has a vault.

Storm Skies Over Lancaster,Ohio

STORM SKIES OVER LANCASTER,OHIO FOR SKYWATCH FRIDAY

framedlight

  Franklin was a prodigious inventor. Among his many creations the lightning rod  and I’m sure he would say, “Make sure to visit SKYWATCH FRIDAY

Emily Dickinson - The Lightning is a yellow Fork

“The Lightning is a yellow Fork
From Tables in the sky
By inadvertent fingers dropt
The awful Cutlery

Of mansions never quite disclosed
And never quite concealed
The Apparatus of the Dark
To ignorance revealed.”


   I APPRECIATE THE HELP FROM BEN AND EMILY AND HOPE YOU ENJOYED THE PHOTO AND POEM.. HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND

TODAY IS MY BIRTHDAY JUNE 9TH..

Joe Todd & Linda’s Marriage Weekend

CELIBACY AND THE MARRIAGE WEEKEND

DSC_0194

 
What is Celibacy?
Celibacy can be a choice in life, or a condition imposed by circumstances.
While attending a Marriage Weekend, Joe Todd and his wife Linda listened to the instructor declare, “It is essential that husbands and wives know the things that are important to each other.”
He then addressed the men. “Can you name and describe your wife's favorite flower?”
Joe Todd leaned over, touched Linda’s arm gently, and whispered, “Gold Medal-All-Purpose, isn’t it?”
And thus began Joe Todds life of celibacy...


 

JOETODDSAYS210 AND Y'ALL THOUGHT I COULD NOT SEND YOU A SMILE TODAY……………………………………………………………………Love those emails.. Thanks Jim G.

Waterfall acrostic poem


Whooshing, pushing, gushing over rocks

Attacking every thing in sight

Thrashing, bashing, crushing rocks and things

Error, terror, hear the power

Recking, decking, pecking in and out of rocks

Faster, crashier, bashier all around the place

Arting, darting, carting all the rocks around

Looking, cooking, booking in and out like a meander

Lushing, sushing, mushing every-where

By MOLLY

  Thanks for stopping by and make sure to check out Watery Wednesday P.S. Linda and I spent a couple days camping at the caves. I have a great photo of her going down the waterslide and splashing in the pool hands and legs all akimbo. ( saving for another Watery Wednesday )
