My oldest son is on his way up from Kentucky. We last saw him, and most of my family, back in April. My parents, brothers, sisters, and most all other relatives live in states south of here so I don't get to see The Conners as much as I'd like. Unfortunately, and oddly, we don't seem to "get out" all that much anymore. Except for my son, Benjamin, who seems to be on the go a lot. At 28, he's still a young man with energy to spare, and loves to travel when he can.
The start of 2009 will be mighty special!
The dogwood pictured in my previous post was photographed in downtown Pittsburgh. I don't know the variety name. What's striking, for me anyway, is its natural beauty in comparison to the man-made beauty of the "concrete jungle."
