Melanie Olson's People and places Posts

This is my mother's Bichon Frisé. His name is Captain Jack and he's about 7 years old and is just the sweetest dog. He has everyone wrapped around his paws and…

I took a week off to visit my mother and one of my sons, and the fog was there to greet me. I love the mood that fog evokes. It made my trip back to see my…

Raleigh has been unseasonably warm this winter, for the most part - but last night, a winter storm rolled in. We didn't get the several inches of accumulation…

It was Elvis's birthday on 8 January, so we celebrated the night before by seeing some friends perform at a local club. The place was packed and we had a great…

While away at the beach this weekend, we saw this little family of Mallards. I am thinking that they are siblings since you don't usually see two males with one…

Dan and I have been married for ten years. I can hardly believe it. Where has the time gone? To celebrate, we went on a Christmas dinner cruise. Here are a few…

Just a little story: Dan and I wanted a souvenir of our Christmas in July evening, but the winery didn't sell glasses with their logo on them. They did, however…

South of the equator, Christmas falls in the height of summer heat, which, even after almost ten years, just seems odd to me. So, every winter, Dan and I do…

Our friends have a small menagerie consisting of a dog, a cat, and hand-raised budgies. They are a study in perpetual motion.

There's a little town near us called Bundanoon. Every year, they have a festival called “Bundanoon is Brigadoon,” with pipe bands and everything Scottish. On…

or… what I watched on Friday night. I thought it was so sweet. I know there are more serious things going on in the world right now, but it's nice to be able to…

I usually go to a doll show about three times a year to get supplies and see what people are getting for their dolls. Dan comes with me and he actually has a…
