I’ve been outdone…

After seeing my old school selfie pic making the rounds again, one of my friends, Joe,  posted this picture on Facebook with the caption, “Hello Jonco, Can you hear me?“


Daddy’s Home

I made it home about noon today from a week long trip to Florida and this was my greeting….

I live close to the Meramec River just south of St. Louis and I have to cross that river to get home.  There are like 3 or 4 bridges that cross the river without going […]

Last Sunset in Paradise

This is the last sunset I’ll see here. I’m headed back to flooded Missouri on an 8:30 am flight.  The main interstate leading to my house (from the airport) is closed because of the flooding, so it will be an interesting adventure.  Click to enlarge.

Tonight my brother and I went to Amore […]

Meeting me – Meeting you

I had the pleasure of meeting Paul in Fort Lauderdale for lunch today.  

Fort to Fort – Paul made the two-hour drive from Fort Lauderdale to Fort Myers where we had lunch.  Paul is a very personable and down to earth guy and it was an interesting conversation about several topics including […]

Meeting me – Meeting you

A finer pair of guys would be hard to find.  From left to right: Fungus (Dave), Jonco (me), Lunchbox (Mike) and my brother Paul.  We had […]

We spent a little time visiting Naples fishing pier on Saturday.  A hat blew off the head of a woman on the pier and a dolphin began circling it for a few minutes.  Then we saw a dolphin with a quite large fish in its mouth surfacing near us.  After a quick dive, the […]

From the lanai…

Click to enlarge.   lanai vs veranda (I didn’t now the difference so I looked it up. There doesn’t seem to be a difference.  They call them lanai’s here.)

Meanwhile, in Florida…

After returning to the condo my brother has rented, Google presented me with this video it created of the pictures I took today of the condo and a pontoon boat ride we took this morning.  The temperature is in the mid-90s but there was a good breeze out on the lake.


Some of the lots […]

Sad Trixie?

Google created this ‘stylized’ version of a picture I took of Trixie sitting up in the bay window of the new patio room.  She looks so sad there, but she’s not at all.  She’s a very happy dog.
