Messing About in Boats, Boots, and Byways:

Tom's thumbs

Our friend's eye -- 360/24/7

    20 July 06: Our friend and colleague, Tom, a pastor in Jamestown, has a fine eye for nature and for his environmen in general. I've asked him to submit some of his pix, and he did. Take a look at Tom's thumbnails, and the bigger versions, too!

    When I asked Tom how much detail about himself I could mention, he said that "to me, the most important piece of information to include is that I am a 'friend of Jon'!" You gotta love a guy like that.

   Tom serves First Presbyterian Church, a vibrant downtown church with ministries of care, challenge, and vision. Both the Reverend and I would like to be more like Tom when we grow up.

    Here are his pix and the captions that he wrote for them.


Nurse log in Heart's Content outside of Warren, PA in the Allegheny National Forest.
It doesn't get much better than this. End of day at Barcelona on Lake Erie.
Whitecaps on a windy day at Barcelona.
My other church. (Jamestown Jammers Baseball).
I'm still looking for Moses among the bullrushes.
Angus Watkins once wrote a poem about a "bar code forest." I think this one qualifies! (Leunsman Overlook Park in Chautauqua County).
I'd love to know if Dean's and Penny's love for one another is yet etched in their hearts.

The best place for subs in WNY... Ye Olde Corner Deli in Hartfield, near Mayville.

One early morning wakeup this spring (taken from our front yard).

And you thought I went to baseball games because I like baseball?!
"Let's put our heads together."
"May I have this dance?"
Discarded hope.

A hard rain looking like Christmas tree tinsel.
