Caretaker’s Birthday

TODAY AT THE CHURCH O’ THE PINES IT IS A RED LETTER DAY, as it is the birthday of one of the Caretakers—Kathy! (My wife by marriage.) We celebrated last night with a nice dinner in the cabin, supplemented by a little wine and an old PBS Poirot Mystery.

Sherburn Wildlife Refuge

SPENT THE AFTERNOON AT WONDERFUL SHERBURN WILDLIFE REFUGE for Kathy’s birthday. In addition to observing and frolicking with grandchildren, always a rewarding experience (and sharing carrot cake cupcakes and hot coffee on picnic blankets)

Bonsai Zen Forest

IT IS A GOOD DAY at Pine Point, as we celebrate the delightful un-hiding of Trump’s taxes. As we look forward confidently to Joe Biden having a fine debate. As we anticipate our Minnesota Twins in the Playoffs!

Autumn in Full Swing

HERE AT THE CHURCH O’ THE PINES, Autumn is in full swing. The old Deacon pines are dropping their needles, carpeting the earth with gold. An azure blue sky is reflected in the Father of Waters, while the air has a definite spicy tang to it.
