Mr. Eagle finally poses…

I am at 126 X Zoom, as far as my camera can take a picture and it will be any good to look at. He was a little dot in the distance and I thought he was a rock at first, then that rock moved and I decided to look at it through the camera. I found Mr. Eagle and…

Sometimes and a cup of coffee…

Sometimes I cogitate back to my juvenescence. The days of yore, when the biggest consternation was whether or not you could live up to the calibre of morals that our country had set for itself.
