The Waterfall

Posted by Rick C on Saturday, August 14, 2010,

“Man, it’s hot,” I said to Marilyn, as I wiped the sweat from my forehead.

About Me

Hello, I hope you enjoy my website. Marilyn and I enjoy the outdoors, nature, gardening, hikeing, walking, and many other things. I think she would rather go dancing, but I'll stick with the outdoors. We feed the birds in the backyard, and love watching them raise their young. We put in a gold fish pond several years ago which attracts a lot of small animals. Frogs, toads, turtles, and other creatures call our backyard home. Thanks and please visit often as the site changes regularly. Rick
