Modification to the Thanksgiving wreath

October 31st, 2010 · No Comments

I have spent two days with an orange circle. When I added lights to the wreath, I had in mind the soft, warm glow of a harvest fire. Instead, the effect is garish; if it flashed, I would think: EAT AT JOE’S. So, I am going to cut the lights off today and find a […]

First impression shouldn’t be in photos

October 30th, 2010 · 2 Comments

Ah, well, I am not thinking about this because of the photo below, but in reference to some man’s picture I saw on Flickr. It just popped up; I don’t know who he is, if he is nice, kind, smart, funny or a serial killer. He’s an elderly man and his smile consists of basic […]

7:04 am . . . and so dark

October 30th, 2010 · No Comments

It is pitch black outside. I am here with the only light in the room being the laptop display, my Thomas Bickle light and, of course, this little light of mine. Good gracious, it is not looking the slightest bit lighter . . . no hint of daylight. Is the the morning the sun didn’t […]

Yikes!!

October 29th, 2010 · 2 Comments

One thing about a digital camera – before you blur things and do whatever, the image coming out is downright unforgiving. This morning I made a wreath for Thanksgiving because I wanted to. When I began I thought I’d take some pictures to show Quentin that’s his mother’s project making hasn’t changed – it is […]

Tornado warning, dude

October 27th, 2010 · 2 Comments

The tornado sirens went off yesterday – this late in October!! I was sitting here working on something and  over the noise of a train, I thought I heard a high pitched whine. It was extremely windy and I figured it was that wind funneling between something and making a whistle. Well, I was close […]

Limitless emotions

October 26th, 2010 · 1 Comment

I feel about average today and I’m thinking about  how tremendously big emotions can seem because I was looking on the weather site and glanced at the category “Feels Like”. I started thinking about sadness and how incredibly crushing it can feel; exuberance to the point of possible explosion . . . that sort of […]

A good point on The View

October 25th, 2010 · 1 Comment

I don’t watch The View, but today it came on the TV when I had my hands full of stuff I was sorting. By the time I picked up the remote, Barbara Walters mentioned a controversy on the show that happened two weeks ago, and I suspected they were going to say something about Bill […]

Did that kid say graveyard?

October 24th, 2010 · No Comments

Friday, I ambled into Kroger’s just after they had moved a lot of steaks over to the “Reduced for Quick Sale” section and, so, I took advantage of the situation and planned a weekend cookout with Der Bingle and the clowns – er, Summer and Cameron. Saturday  looked like rain all day and, in fact, […]

The incense story or how I made a fool out of myself

October 22nd, 2010 · 1 Comment

Der Bingle sent me an incense burner shaped like a teepee; it was from him and my good friend NaPoo. And here is a picture of the teepee: Along with this, they sent some scented wood samples: Now, look inside the box and see how things are packaged and labeled. Because this is an open […]
