Calf and a Half


For Half Nekkid Thursday

And fear not, Gentle Viewers, this will not be a blog you must avoid on Thursdays because I'm only doing this once.

This was originally posted on June 30th for Half Nekkid Thursday and turned out to be a VERY FUN photo, I'm also very pleased with the lighting, cropping. That would make this silly bit of hedonism MY FAVORITE for the year

and thusly submitted for Thursday Challenge: My Favorite.Posted by Hello

Kids, When I Was Growing Up, Gas Was Less Than 2 Bucks Per Gallon!


I took this for in Aug 2003 for 2 reasons, I was learning to take night photos, and I couldn't believe the high price of gas. Posted by Picasa

This Is YOU


Are you:

A) The New Nokia 75000 Wearable Cell Phone?

B) A desperate shareholder trying to pump up your US Cellular Stock?

C) The person who drew the short straw back at the office?

Bye Bye Birdie: The End of Another Era


I've been asked to remove my bird feeder, by my landlords, which I suppose is reasonable given that it's attached to the side of the house inches from my window. Posted by Picasa

Boston (and May God Have Mercy on its Soul.)


What, you ask, is locked up so tightly behind this big fat gate?

MY ABILITY TO TAKE A DECENT PHOTO, APPARENTLY!

I was whining to my new blog friend, Invictus Oculus about how, for me, photography is a solitary pursuit. I'm reduced to snapshooting when anyone is around and SUCKING snapshooting at that.

Then I wonder why I can't even PAY my non-blog friends to look at my blog. I practically have to hand over hand them just to get them to bring it up on their browsers ONCE.

AND THEY NEVER BOOKMARK IT! Philistines! MONKEYS!

But I digress.

I went to Boston to meet a friend for dinner and thought I would take several hundred stunning jaw dropping photos and took nothing but CRAPOLA!

I didn't have it.

You ever have days like that, Gentle Viewer?

Do ya?

Yeah ya do.

But you know what you do?

You maintain your diginity and not post!

BUT NOT ME, BABY!

Enjoy the banality! Posted by Picasa
