Elusive Butterfly of love....

MACRO MONDAY



Along the foundation of our house in the back yard, I have two small flower beds of yellow mini-zinnias. And the butterflies love 'em. Over the weekend we had a cold snap come in from the north dropping the temps by some 40 degrees overnight. Tho I love it, the flowers don't much....here are some shots from earlier this Fall---

Tough year all around, but, I've been lucky...










Tho, not everyone is as lucky as I am.......

The economy is so bad that I got a pre-declined credit card in the mail.

I ordered a burger at McDonald's, and the kid behind the counter asked, "Can you afford fries with that?"

CEO's are now playing miniature golf..

If the bank returns your check marked "Insufficient Funds," you have to call them and ask if they mean you or them. (NOT GRAND BANK)

Hot Wheels and Matchbox stocks are trading higher than GM.

McDonald's is selling the 1/4 'ouncer'.

Parents in Beverly Hills and Malibu are firing their nannies and learning their children's names.

A truckload of Americans was caught sneaking into Mexico .

Dick Cheney took his stockbroker hunting.

Motel Six won't leave the light on anymore.

The Mafia is laying off judges.

BP Oil laid off 25 Congressmen.

Congress says they are looking into the Bernard Madoff scandal. Oh Great!! The guy who made $50 Billion disappear is being investigated by the people who made $1.5 Trillion disappear!

And, finally...

I was so depressed last night thinking about the economy, wars, jobs, my savings, Social Security, retirement funds, and our bleak future, that I called the Suicide Lifeline and was connected to a call center in Pakistan . When I told them I was suicidal, they got all excited, and asked if I could drive a truck.


[ps...I have no idea who to credit for the rooster photo....it was embedded in the email I rec'd]

  12. The butterflies are beautiful, and their colors coordinate perfectly with the zinnias!

    That rooster, however, looks like he went through the wringer backwards but doesn't want to admit it!

    Thanks for coming by!
