    Invisible Services by Dogs

    Service dogs may assist both PTSD and CPTSD conditions. They also help autistics and those who God blessed with the mind of an Asperger type. Generally speaking, the characteristics required for a service dog for such people are as described in this post. Where this information originally was received from is now lost, but the data itself remains true. Service dogs are trained for veterans and non-veterans, men and women, adults and children that have PTSD and/or are on the autism spectrum with Aspergers Syndrome.

    North South Lake Campground

    It’s amazing what a day can bring, especially for someone who hasn’t been anywhere in many years! This would explain why the photographs may appear quite restricted in regard to variety. People are more challenging to photograph than nature, so…

    May May Be Best

    It’s shocking to me how much has changed in my life to cause me to not notice time disappeared for the usual activity I’ve been involved in. Returning to the reservoir, after having not been there for decades, was a…

    Not So Funny February

    Not every month of the year is full of good cheer. Some of them can be quite drab, especially February. When life hands you lemons, make lemonade. I do it in the form of photographs. If you think these shots…

    Fall Falling Fast

    Fall falls fast! Why can’t it last? Now it’s past. But, as they say, “Take a picture. It lasts longer.” So, I did and here they are… Before messing with October’s photographs, I thought it’d be great for the colors…

    Walk in October

    Take a walk in October. It smells good and doesn’t look too bad either, right? Normally, I don’t have my service man walking with me. On this day however, I’m blessed to have a carrier. My dog is too little…

    Before and After Siding

    Rare is the house that has a lot of history before it receives siding for the first time. This is one of them. It waited 70 years for siding to be completed and the heating system installation 80% near finished.…

    Spring Shots

    I’m amazed over how well software technicians have developed the “bait and switch” skill! When blogging first started, it was a whole lot more enjoyable than what it has become! Control over how the finished publication will look has diminished…

    Gloomy 2021 Winter

    When did it begin getting so gloomy? I think it began before May of 2016. It really got dismal when 2020 started! That’s when the biggest scam got dumped upon the world! Even the weather tries to scream out warnings…
