When I was in Los Angeles, Ca. in December of 2010, I took this photo after riding the Angels Flight train. It is the shortest train in the world at 298 feet long. It connects Hill and Olive Streets in the Bunker Hill section of downtown Los Angeles. It only cost a quarter to ride it. At the bottom of the train, I visited the large farmer's market.

Frog in Pool - Feb. 11, 2011
I took this photo last August ( 2010 ) at a friend's backyard pool. There was a frog swimming around in the pool that day. I got him out and sat him in the nearby grass. I thought of this photo today because it is so very cold this morning in northern Virginia and I am going to a regional swim meet this afternoon in our area for the local high schools. I want to think warm thoughts.

Dining Room Mantle - Feb. 4, 2011
This is a photo of my dining room mantle. The picture of the young girl was removed from behind a wall when my father was re-modeling a house we lived in when I was very young in the 1950s. She has a sad look on her face, but I've always loved this picture and carried it around with me for years. My father made the walnut frame for it.
