Porte Photos’ Daily Quote: October 20, 2022

Hitting the ball was easy.
Running around the bases
was the tough part.

Porte Ponderings:

Cold and wet. The last couple of days is how I remember my University Novembers. I had never seen so much rain as when I had to walk around campus in October. My roommate had a slicker from Nova Scotia, so she was ready for the terrible rains.

I’m never ready for the October rain. The last couple of days have made me housebound as I avoid my daily walks. It’s so dark in the morning it’s hard to have the ambition to get out of bed. Then it’s been so cold, with the weatherman threatening snow. Hopefully I can get back on track and out for a walk soon.

Daily Quote: April 9, 2022

A photograph is a moment
– when you press the button,
it will never come back.

Holidays and Celebrations:

Porte Musings:

Fasting and prayer continues on the 39th day of Lent for Christians and the 8th day of Ramadan for Muslims.

For those that believe in fantasy and dreams today is National Unicorn Day. Remember the Irish Rovers and the Unicorn song? A good Irish ballad about why there are no more unicorns?

Some friends and I are going out for supper tonight to celebrate our birthdays. Hopefully it will include the celebration of National Chinese Almond Cookie Day as well.

Caught on camera at a baseball game in Lakeland the batter lost his bat mid-stroke and I caught it with my camera. Lucky shot for me. Bad luck for him.
