|Sunday, August 04, 2013, 11:06:21 PM- My week in a couple of images|
Monday started beautifully as so many days do outside my front door, the sunrises are one my favorite things each day.
Tuesday was a bit cloudy and I managed this shot of sun rays filtering through the clouds on my drive to work.
Wednesday morning I found this flower while walking one of the dogs.
Thurssday this little guys stopped by to visit while I was at work.
Then Friday I took this little fella to the vet after he slept on our deck for two nights and welcomed yet another pup into the pack. While we are trying to find him a good home, I am pretty sure he knows he already found it. All I can say is the good ones find you.... and we are now seriously out numbered :)
I think his name will be Bud as I seem to naturally call him that but it is still tentative. He was a sad little fella but he is gaining strength quickly and fitting in with the others quite well.
I just cant wait to see what this week brings.... hope yours is a good one, take care folks.
|Sunday, July 28, 2013, 1:36:35 PM- Miscellaneous stuff|
First I have a Stubby update, some of you may have seen the pictures of Stubby the bob tail squirrel in my blog previously. I am pleased to announce that Stubby is definitely a male and in all likely hood and impending papa as well. As I arrived home Friday he was having a "really great time" with another squirrel. I took some pics as this was quite an amusing sight but they were too far away to get a good shot of the event.
This is the sunrise from Friday morning, wish I could hit the reset button, Groundhog Day style back to this. Weekends go far too quickly.
Got a few pics of some mushrooms, I am no expert but I presume they are as dangerous as they are pretty...kinda like a some people I know ;)
and a few things from the interwebs...
This is my kinda flow chart...if you cant fix it with WD40 and/or duct tape it is a lost cause :)
...well yeah... ;)
Yep I think most folks know this feeling
lastly a few interesting tidbits
Not sure about the reality of this, but I can think of more than a few times I would love to find out.
...we have the technology to rebuild him....
New upholstery for the status couch me thinks... :)
Sharing a fact(presumably) and contributing to it at the same time :)
Off to cut some grass, have a great Sunday and a wonderful week folks. Take care :)
|Sunday, July 21, 2013, 2:50:46 PM- A few pics from last week|
This little fella stopped just long enough for a couple pics as if he were posing, then fluttered on :)
A spectacular sunrise while walking the dogs early in the week.
We had a thunderstorm roll through just before dawn the next day, it made the perfect conditions for one of the brightest rainbows I have seen in a long time. It was a double, and even the second one was fairly bright the phone pics do not really do it justice.
This was the sun coming through the clouds as the storm moved off...
I drove right under it, rubber necking and looking for the pot of gold with early retirement in mind. A fantastic sight but no gold...
Hope everyone is having a great weekend! Best wishes for the coming week folks :)
|Monday, July 08, 2013, 12:31:52 AM- Stubby|
In my part of the world gray squirrels are ubiquitous, but I had never observed one with no tail until the late spring. I noticed the strangest thing in a nearby tree. This squirrel whom we have named Stubby was hopping around in the trees with what must have been its siblings. I watched for a while trying to process what I was seeing. It is quite an odd thing to see a little tail less squirrel. I would watch him hop and expect to see a tail land behind him for the longest time. It looks so strange, needless to say I have grown attached to and fascinated by him. Anyway I wanted to share the latest addition to our menagerie. He is quite hard to photograph as all of the squirrels in our yard stay on edged due to being chased by puppies...regularly lol
|Sunday, July 07, 2013, 1:33:25 PM- A few random pics from the weekend|
I love the iridescence of this flower, and it reminds me of something. I just can't quite put my finger on it... ;) It grows all around my neighbor hood. I believe it is a kind of wild orchid, most orchid flowers are reminiscent of lady parts to me, guess that makes me a perv, oh damn the secrets out!!! I suppose a Freudian would have a lot of interesting thoughts on that... :)
Finally getting a few ripe blueberries, now if I can just beat the birds to them....
If you sleep too deeply (or get too drunk...lol) around here tt will paint your nails ;) Happy was her latest victim, he was looking rather festive for the 4th :)
Just heard on tv it is the anniversary of sliced bread, or the machine that does it anyway. Makes me wonder what was the previous thing that greatness was compared to? Just a random thought... have a great week folks :)
|Friday, July 05, 2013, 10:01:37 PM- A new favorite Tshirt|
The goatee is available for rides too ;)
Really do love this shirt and I thought some here might find it amusing too so I thought I would share a pic.
|Thursday, July 04, 2013, 6:08:09 PM- Happy Birthday to Freedom|
"But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate -- we can not consecrate -- we can not hallow -- this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us -- that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion -- that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain -- that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom -- and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth."
-President Abraham Lincoln
These words were meant to apply to Gettysburg, but to me they transcend their original intent and apply to the importance of liberty within the human spirit. Regardless of politics then or now they speak to the depth of importance liberty holds for anyone who would choose it as a way of life in America or anywhere.
Bless everyone out there whom cherishes the liberty that resides in their spirit, the freedom that so many good folks lay their lives on the line for, thanks to the people who dedicate their life's work to ensuring that no one has to live under tyranny if they so choose. Today is Americas Birthday but to me it also represents the birthday of freedom as well. A time to honor everyone, everywhere who cherishes their freedom and that of their fellow man.
Have a great Independence Day everyone, and as always make someone smile every chance you get :)
|Thursday, July 04, 2013, 1:51:22 AM- My week in a couple of images|

Went to work with tt for a while this morning... this little fella kept trying to sell me insurance with a funny accent :)
He was hanging out on one of my favorite plants, a cereus
...pardon the tangent please, here is a cool video of a cereus blooming. The flower only lasts a short while and they smell incredible
tangent over... now for the orginal pic of the insurance selling lizard that started this bit.
Some interesting physics and light bending going on in this one, nature never ceases to amaze me.
