Don't quit the day job

Today was mostly uneventful. Jilda did get a great hair cut from her new stylist, and I got a case for my new phone, but otherwise not much happened here in Empire. the way to get the case, I did pass by a pink dogwood in full bloom. I was on a narrow forgotten back road. I don't recall the last time I passed a car on that old road.  

The pavement is rough, but those with good shocks or driving a truck, there are things to see. At one point at the crest of the  one of the hills, you can see to the next county. Lakes and cattle dot the horizon to the west. The sunsets there are spectacular.

But today was cloudy and the view as limited, except when I rounded the curve and saw the dogwood. I rolled down the window of my truck and pulled close enough to the tree to pick a blossom.

I posted the picture on Instagram (rickwatson) and it got some love from my followers there. We'll see if it passes muster with my blog-buds.
