Spiderwebs on the Lawn


Wyle actually pointed out these spiderwebs that were crisscrossing the tips of the grass as I was turned around gardening.  They were nearly impossible to see when I stood over them, but from her height, you could see them spread out for several feet.  What an observant little girl.

Bennett's Five and Dime


I was going through some old boxes in my basement when I pulled out a stack of faded piano music and found a sheet covered in these stickers.  My father's family owned and operated a dime store when he was a kid, and while it has been out of business for decades, little reminders like this pop up every once in a while and make me smile.
