Marlin loved fly fishing. It was like watching a quiet dance. Here he is landing The Catch, a beautiful rainbow trout in the Sierra Nevada Mountains.
Cabbage

Cabbage

I marvel at the colors in my garden! The red cabbage is just ablaze with everything but red! The holes where the bugs stopped to munch, remind me of my father saying “if the bugs don’t want it, why would we?” I guess we were organic, before organic was cool!...
