This corner of the Pinecraft Park looks so peaceful.

At Lapp's Bike Shop. Linda needs new lights for her bike.

Since the bike can't pedal its own wheels, 
it gets a ride home.

Resurrection Fern

Hurricane/Rainy season according to the calendar isn't over yet.  
The season runs through November 30, 2018.
We haven't had much rain since Hurricane Michael.
Today I noticed the Resurrection Ferns which sit and grow on tree trunks are brown and look dead.
But their brown and deadness is the reason they are called Resurrection Ferns.

People Watching

Quite interesting to sit at Big Olaf for an hour or so this afternoon. No two persons alike.

At the Pinecraft Park

Two games were in session tonight.
These are from Pennsylvania, Indiana, local, Ohio.

Battery Scooter, you can't sit but you can go places.

I think the squirrel remembered Uriah. He used to feed the squirrels quite a bit earlier this summer.

Melard Coach's First Run

Most of the 27 passengers came down today to prepare their Florida homes for the winter. The bus came arrived mid-afternoon and plans to leave again on Friday. This gives them enough time to clean their houses, eat & sleep and play Shuffleboard.

These two are shuffleboard players.

One scooter came along down.

Picnic at the Pinecraft Park

Sunday evening's picnic at the park. Daniel the little boy watching the squirrels from a distance. 

Two of the women visiting with Betty and Zoie.

These are both from Pennsylvania, from different communities.


A new twist for an old branch.

Are these edible? Purged from the Palm tree.  

Baby Tree Frog

The baby Tree Frogs make me shiver more than the adult frogs do. Baby Frog can hop on my dress and get a free ride into my house and I would never know it until it starts jumping around in the house, which happened one night years ago. 

That time I was going to ignore the tree frog when I discovered him in my bedroom. I woke up because I felt something plop on my pillow next to my face. I tried to catch it but I couldn't for it was too quick and jumped out of my reach. So then I decided okay and went back to sleep, only to have him jump on my pillow again. So I spent hours that night figuring out how to catch him, but I was never quick enough. Finally I remembered how to catch a Gecko by throwing a wet towel on it, then picking up the wet towel and giving it a shake outside. 

So I got my wet towel ready and the next time the tree frog came out of hiding I threw the towel on him and sure enough he was caught and taken outside. But I never, ever want to go through that ordeal again in the middle of the night. So I keep my distance from all tree frogs.


Newly weds and on their Honeymoon.

Monday Morning

Working on the Gingerich House on Schrock Street this morning. 

Pruning and purging "The Garden of Eden" on the corner of Kaufman and Schrock.  The Garden was a mess but it has some of its former beauty again.
