My life changed dramatically and forever when I lost TJ.

I welcome you to follow along as I adjust to my "new normal".

It is not all puppies and ice cream but it is my life....real and honest.

Missile Launch

I know I just posted pictures two days ago and now I am posting more. But, something happened this morning that I wanted to share with all of you.

Early this morning the White Sands Army Base in New Mexico launched a test missile. When atmospheric conditions are perfect and the sun is rising at the perfect time we, here in the Arizona desert, get to see the contrails. I haven't seen this for probably 5 years, but this morning I was out feeding my mule when I looked at the mountain and saw it. I, of course, ran inside to get my camera and began shooting. Below are some of the images I was able to capture this morning. It is only for a brief time that the contrails can be viewed and I enjoyed the opportunity to see it dissipate into the morning sky.


  1. oh, wow! one giant smoke ring! thank you for sharing it!

  2. I'm glad you shared! I like the last one, with the shadow of the rocks at the bottom.

  3. That was beautiful and unusual and I am so glad you found you camera right away.

  4. Fabulous shots -- did you have your tinfoil hat on? Lol.

  5. Oh My!
    it's like Close Encounters of the Third Kind.

    Very cool Xxx

  6. Oh wow! That must have been so exciting! So glad you weren't far from your camera.


Please, let me know your thoughts
