Didn't last too long!


The blooms, on the trees. I've been around for a long time!

Lucky me. I was in the NC Great Smoky Mountains during the recent 26 hour power outage in good old Savage Maryland.

Labor Day



Labor Day is a special kind of portal in the calendar year.
Pools close and schools open. More than the first day of spring or even Memorial Day, Labor Day is the slamming of the door on one season and the beginning of another.
A new school year is a fresh start in a way that New Year's Day cannot match. It is new shoes and a new teacher and a chance to begin again. Even if your children are grown and gone, the first day of school still has that hint of promise.

Above, Shrine of the Little Flower Catholic School in Baltimore Maryland. Twas my grade school and that of many of the kids that I coached over the years. Now they call it the "Green School". Go figure. The good sisters are turning in their graves!

Ray at important staff meeting.


I said OK every 30 to 60 seconds and the management was happy!
