Detours

  Several weeks ago I had a chance to go over to Maryville and visit an old friend on a Saturday, the leaves were still full of fall color, a light breeze was shimmering those left in the trees and the fallen ones danced on the road in front of me.  It was a beautiful sunny … More Detours

Stumbling Block
