To memorialize that meeting, Stephanie photographed the table and chairs where they had met.

She and her sister had just concluded a meeting with Agent K from the Men in Black. They were to be the first women recruits. This was history in the making!

Heading to the building that housed operations, they made their way to the newest locker room, built just for them. Her sister was Agent V, and she Agent Z.

Changing clothes, they set out to their first assignment. A drunken Narkilian was in a bar, and every Agent knows that Narkilians cannot handle their alcohol!

I truly enjoy the creativity of others and I enjoy art, so for today, I thought, why not share some of the art that I have enjoyed? I am not sure who the artists are on most of these. Even so, I did want to share these photos of art with you that I took! Are you ready to take a look at some cool artwork?

Here is just one of the panels of painted glass that I enjoyed when I was in Denali!

Little did we know that Grandpa was a collector. For years, he lived in that old, rundown house on 15 acres. I have fond memories of swimming in the old pond, picking blackberries at a patch near the house, and climbing the huge oak trees to the fort he built for us. What we never expected, after he passed away, was to find what we did!

He had so few knickknacks around the house. Behind the house, there was another outbuilding. We had to hire a team to clear the brush so that we could take down the old structure, getting the property ready for sale. That was when we found the cars. There were so many!

Most of the cars were Fords. There was a sign on the building indicating “Ford Parking Only.” This was odd to us. Why? Because not only did he a collect cars but we always thought Grandpa loved Chevys!

The Haunting - Photo by Alastair Forbes

The Haunting – Photo by Alastair Forbes


I moved into my 1890’s Victorian house nine months ago and began restoration. Shortly after I started the work, strange things started happening.

The first thing I experienced was hearing the sound footsteps on the second floor. When I looked around, I realized no one was there. Then one day in the living room, I discovered that one of the wing chairs mysteriously moved next to the fireplace. I could smell cigar smoke. I do not smoke cigars, nor did I move the chair.

One night, sitting in the patio room playing my guitar, I felt my arms grabbed from behind. As I could see all doors in the room, I realized that I had not seen anyone come in. Looking behind me, I saw one of the houseplants swaying for no apparent reason. Talk about being creeped out!

With the restoration done, by now it was early fall, I decided to have a dinner party. One of the dishes I was going to make was a fresh pumpkin cauliflower soup. As I walked into the kitchen to start cooking, there was the pumpkin, carved and glowing. I had not carved the pumpkin.

It turned towards me smiling and winked.

Kevin Conboy has chosen the subject of this week’s WordPress Photo Challenge; and it is “Refraction.” What is refraction? Miriam Webster defines refraction as: 1) deflection from a straight path undergone by a light ray or energy wave in passing obliquely from one medium (as air) into another (as glass) in which its velocity is different; 2) the change in the apparent position of a celestial body due to bending of the light rays emanating from it as they pass through the atmosphere; also: the correction to be applied to the apparent position of a body because of this bending; and 3) the action of distorting an image by viewing through a medium. I share with you refraction!

Albert is one of those unusual people; one that no one would ever look at twice. He has a face that is easy to forget.

He walks through the town to the center towards the fountain. As he looks around, he finds his mark. It is a young girl of about 12. Young is good. He waves his hand as if grabbing something.

Back in his studio, he pushes his hand towards his latest piece of art. The clock starts to tick, tick, tick. He smiles. No one will ever know that the girl’s soul is what runs the clock!
