Glider Launch Site

While up on the mountain this past Sunday, walking around a tiny “town” (gathering of cute shops and a couple restaurants) called Rim Forest, near Crestline, a young guy saw me with my camera and asked if I wanted to know about a place with great scenery. Naturally, I followed his directions, and ended up […]

Kayaker Gliding Along

This photo was taken at Lake Gregory in Southern California’s San Bernardino Mountains during my spontaneous visit on Sunday. While we’ve had another heat spell down here in the valleys, the mountains offered cooler temps and some scattered spectacular fall colors. I would have rented a kayak and joined that person if not for having my Nikon, […]

This photo is my entry in the challenge, Tiny, a tiny train passing a tiny town with tiny cars, as well. ~SueBee Per Wikipedia: “The […]

Nice Bench for Pondering

I’m restraining myself as much as humanly possible, withholding all matter of cuss words and other adjectives from this post, after our country made a fool of itself in yesterday’s presidential election. I feel this photo is appropriate for the situation many of us find ourselves in, pondering how this could have happened, fearful for the future. Might […]

Red Chair Refurb

The SueBee retail shop that I opened recently within Vintage California’s store in the city of Orange (305 E. Grove Avenue) has been keeping me busy, enjoyably busy. Finding new items to sell, giving some of them a new look, and handcrafting other completely new items, adds an exciting dimension to my weekends. For example, I recently […]

Late Afternoon at Crystal Cove

Today being Friday, my favorite day of the workweek, I decided to drive directly to the beach from work, rather than going home. I had my camera along and thoroughly enjoyed myself walking along the beach at Crystal Cove State Park, in Southern California. The weather was spectacular! ~SueBee

Refurbish for a New Look

My oldest daughter, Angelika, and I spent considerable time some months back refurbishing and restyling the showcase piece of my new SueBee shop. It’s now 100% unique and an eye catcher, in my humble opinion. From humdrum hutch to bold wine cabinet. Visit SueBee at Vintage California at 305 E. Grove Avenue in Orange to see (and purchase!).

SueBee Shop News

SueBee’s shop has been buzzing with activity… a new dividing wall has gone up, an overhead crossbeam connecting the other side and offering support installed, a rustic-looking SueBee shop sign painted and hung, and some flags made and strung from the crossbeam. Best of all, items have gone from their spots – hooray, Sold!! Time to […]

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
