Dry Creek Flashes

In the springtime Horny Heads, small fish with a bony covering on their heads, shoal in the Dry Creek stream. Many years ago when we started housekeeping by the stream my husband, the late Woodrow Frazier, tried to teach me how to catch these fish.

Needmore Days

A newly painted sign stood in front of Dooley’s dog pen. Although the hand painted letters had run a little on the old piece of scrap plywood. The message was clearly readable, even if a couple of words were misspelled. "Dooley’s Dog Training Services" was written in bold headlines across the top of the plywood. The next line down read, "Dooley Ray, Dog Whisperer and Behavior Specialist."

This bag did not contain any worldly treasure. It merely contained mementos of his life which the Traveler could not bear to part with.

Spring has sprung in the Dry Creek Valley. We are seeing the first blooms of the season. Around our house several new pots of flowers have been planted from the ones we managed to keep through the winter. The onion sets were planted in one container in hopes of a few green onions. There really is nothing like fresh garden vegetables. We look forward to a successful garden year for all the growers.
