Marvel-ous Night For A Movie
March 9, 2019

Opening weekend for Captain Marvel, and we were greeted with a Marvel-ous night for a movie. Winter has extended its stay in the Tri-State, but there are signs of spring. Buds are popping, new grass is sprouting, and goose dropping's line the walkways along the river. I enjoyed the long awaited Caption Marvel film, complete with opening title memorial to Stan Lee, rest his soul. Creator of the most iconic superheroes in the business, and frequent...

Early February Warmup
February 3, 2019

Riding the jet stream is a popular pastime here in the Greater Cincinnati area. No, I'm not talking about an airliner or high powered mobile home. Slight changes in this atmospheric anomaly can cause rapid fluctuations in the weather here, bringing us an Early February Warmup. One day it's a high of 3 degrees Fahrenheit, the next it is in the 60's. This meteorological whiplash is not unfamiliar to residents of the area, but can reek havoc on the...

Land Beneath The Bridge
January 24, 2019

Another image from our pilgrimage, this hearty sprig in winter’s blanket adds a pop of color to the bleak landscape. Dressed in a coat of green, Murphy,  prances gaily through the drifting snow, and is once again disappointed by the absence of his friend.

January 21, 2019

It is a cold day for man or beast in Cincinnati, but go out we must. It also has been a long while since Murphy has seen his friend, causing him to shout "Wherefore art thou Fauntleroy?" But it is too cold for Fauntleroy to come out and play. Mrs. Mouse, Fauntleroy's mother, has warned him about associating with the likes of Schnauzer's, as they are prone to fits of compulsive behavior. It is hard to argue with Mrs. Mouses logic here, as I have...

Mid-Winter Cincinnati Sunset
January 9, 2019

Bleak Mid-Winter Cincinnati Sunset? I think not! A blustery evening, though hardly the hundred acre wood. I find myself, standing on the balcony, gazing slack jawed at the scene before me. Motorists winding their way home from a long day, amidst the golden orange hues of an early January sunset. Murphy says to bundle up campers cause it's cold out there. I am working on my talk and book signing coming up at Joseph Beth Rookwood January 29th 7p. It...
