Wipe your paws

The dogs are exhausted from the excitement of the move. Tristan has not ventured far from the house but came out to sleep on the back porch mat this morning.

Celebrating life at work

Lunch out is always a treat. This celebration was in honor of a birthday (birthday girl, front & center).

Scenes from Tulsa



One of my favorite photos - one fine June afternoon in 2008, mommy and i attended a fabulous leacture at Southern Hills featuring several faculty members from M. D. Anderson. We had a wonderful time mingling with the local supporters of M. D. Anderson.

Scenes from the Texas Medical Center II


Another image captured yesterday from the roof of the parking garage of the never ending construction in the TX Medical Center. I particularly like the rippled reflections in the St. Luke's towers.

Scenes from the Texas Medical Center

After work today I snapped a handful of photos from the roof of the parking garage. From the corner of Fannin and Holcombe, looking southward on Fannin. Plenty of traffic to enjoy nearly any time of day.

Cristy's laugh

Cristy is adorable. She's also mischevious, playful and sometimes mildly cynical. But she appreciates funny and her laugh sounds like music to me. I love this photo of her taken on Mother's Day.

Introducing Edgar

This is my particular baby, Edgar. He is named after my late maternal grandfather William Edgar Brunk. Edgar epitomizes the phrase gentle giant. The fact that his tongue is much too long for his mouth is the most comical aspect of his appearance, making him appear like an oversized teddy bear with one of those felt tongues stitched onto his face. But comical or not, I love him dearly.

Sunset of the coquina clams

Sunset over the Texas coast in Port Aransas is a spectacle of brilliance. This particular evening, in early September, millions of coquina clams were bubbling to the surface at the edge of the tide.

Creepy crawly

I noticed this large spider in the yard at dusk building a web near the eve of the house. Apparently the spider was in the house a day or two ago and Cristy banished it to the backyard. There are plenty of flies to be had and this creepy crawly is a welcome neighbor to help keep that pest population under control.

The girls


Cristy snapped this photo after we returned from our little sojourn to Port Aransas and the dogs were SO happy to see us again. It only took 4 tries for everyone to look in the same direction simultaneously. Truly miraculous.

Cactus from my neighbor's garden

My former neighbor, Maria, gave me a clipping from her pencil cactus, as happy plants do, it was overgrowing its spot in her yard. She has a lovely garden and I am so thankful to be able to bring this gift from her garden with me to my new home. Thank you Maria!

Pic of the day - the photographer


My future sister-in-law celebrated her birthday last weekend and a handful of friends and family gathered for a casual brunch. Her son and I simulataneously photographed each other. I should have done a side-by-side!

Pic of the day - Jasper

Jasper is the most active and playful dog in the family. Chasing a ball is her idea of heaven. Absolutely the sweetest disposition in the world. She greets me when I wake in the morning and happily welcomes me when I arrive home after work.
