That Blue Southwestern Sky, by Beverly Hicks Burch

Just look at that blue western sky. And, it you look close enough in the foreground you’ll see something on the ground that will take away all the horrid memories of this past dreary hot summer.  Yes, that is snow! I can feel the cool fall breezes creeping upon us any day now, and it’s… Continue reading That Blue Southwestern Sky, by Beverly Hicks Burch

A Trip to Carlsbad Caverns Begins, by Beverly Hicks Burch

In Jan. 2001 I had the opportunity to visit Carlsbad Caverns in Carlsbad, NM. As a piece of Bev and Tall & Handsome trivia, Carlsbad Caverns is actually a place in T & H’s native New Mexico that I have visited and he has never seen. Reportedly Carlsbad Caverns is the third largest underground chamber… Continue reading A Trip to Carlsbad Caverns Begins, by Beverly Hicks Burch

Rocks of Ages, by Beverly Hicks Burch

In Jan. 2009 Tall & Handsome presented me with the wonderful opportunity to strike off one of the items on my bucket list…and, that was to see the Grand Canyon.

As Green As It Gets, by Beverly Hicks Burch

This is about as green as it gets in the Sonoran Desert. If you recall, I wrote the other day about my trip to Arizona with Tall & Handsome back in January 2009. I took this picture from a speeding vehicle (figuratively, of course) as we were driving between Tucson and Scottsdale. The Sonoran is… Continue reading As Green As It Gets, by Beverly Hicks Burch

When Tall & Handsome and I where on our trip to Arizona the camera got a good workout. We took more pictures than I could actually include in one blog. Today’s picture is another picture of cacti (and a palm tree in the background if you look close enough). Here a Prickly Pear cactus is… Continue reading Cradled, by Beverly Hicks Burch

Well, I Sure Didn’t Go South…, by Beverly Hicks Burch

You know sometimes how your life can go south? You know those days or times when nothing seems to go right…in a hurry! We’ve all had them.

Then of course there is that good kind of… Continue reading Well, I Sure Didn’t Go South…, by Beverly Hicks Burch
