It's often more fun to kayak with friends. This photo was on WHO-TV today - other kayakers also make better photos too; thanks!

Water Music

When you were little did you believe that you could fly, or that fairy tales came true, or that things could really be magical? Natural rhythm is the beat of your heart, and nature's music can be as simple as the sounds of your breathing.

Day to Explore

Evening to Explore

I had an unexpected day to explore today; there are places in Iowa that are very beautiful. These photos were taken near the Des Moines River - they showed them on WHO-TV this evening.

Wavy Hair


An old friend recently inherited a box of worn photographs from our not-too-distant youth and he was kind enough to send some of them to me......I realized that my hair has always curled when it gets wet, that my little dog could swim, and that I spent a lot of time in bathing suits. We cooked a lot more back in those days too. So here are the you recognize me?

First Dog

Among the offices president-elect Obama has yet to fill is the special position of 'first dog', and it is my understanding that due to Malia's allergic tendencies they are reviewing the qualifications of 'hypoallergenic' canines. Hypoallergenic aside - the breeds they are considering shed less which has always seemed advantageous. One of the no-shed breeds being considered by the Obamas is the Portuguese Water Dog - a breed that has captured my heart for decades. They are energetic, happy, and above-all fun - but not for the faint of heart. They love water and demand exercise and attention - or they will find some 'work' of their rearranging the furniture......the perfect breed for me - their hair even curls when it gets wet like mine. Unfortunately, due to their high energy levels they are often abandoned - so sad for such a happy, social creature who promises unconditional love. I hope that the Obamas will seriously consider this wonderful water dog!
