Sunday, May 31st, 2009 4:27 A.M. For Sunday Stealing, scroll down below my "walk about", or CLICK HERE A walk in the yard showing off all the 'whimsical' things, and some more flowers [are y'all tired of me posting posies yet? Y'know during the spring and summer months...it's all about flower gardens in our yard...] the 'trinkets' are mostly hidden until you're right up on 'em. Thing is, we still have a lot packed away. Our yard is much smaller than the one we had in Tucson. There just isn't room for it all. We've trashed some, we've packed others, and we've given other things away. But anyhow, I thought I'd do a walk about... First, on the west edge of our patio we have a plant...a yellow trumpet. I've seen others in our neighborhood that are large enough to be considered small trees. I always cut it down over the few years we've lived here...goes to show you what I know. Maybe now I'll let

Saturday, May 30th, 2009 12:10 A.M. Join Here PHOTO HUNT 2009 THEMES BOOKS So many times I hear this. Lately I've been reading in my comments that I 'favor' my mother's looks. I guess y'all are seeing the sidebar sepia photo I added a few months ago of my mom at the age of 18. Bud is constantly telling me that I too look like her...'a spittin' image'. [He and she had a great rapport] My dad told me many-a-times, as well as my sister. Today, the subject is books. Since it's the time of year that many are graduating from high school, I thought I'd share a book of mine...my senior school yearbook. [42 years ago tomorrow I graduated from high school, May 31st, you do the math!] - - - I then took my senior portrait [a different angled shot than the one I chose for the yearbook...my mom picked the one below for my Senior Picture for the house/frame] and added my mom's photo into it. I swear, when I look in the mirror and see

Friday, May 29th, 2009 6:00 A.M. Join Here My 55 Fiction today is Dream. Scroll down below Show N Tell, or CLICK HERE They're VERY dusty...they've been around for nearly 30 years. They're a couple of Erik's toys. I guess some would consider them collector's items by now. Since his days in the Marine Corps, when he wanted me to take them to Goodwill, I packed them away for him for his "someday you may want them". But, now that he's been moved out for over a decade, he still doesn't want them. I, of course, continue to keep them. [He DID take all his Star Wars Action Figures when he moved from Denver to Houston...he probably sold them on Ebay, knowing him.] Okay, so 'nough gab already Anni...just show whatcha got for the day...... From the movie, The Alien. What a creature. It glows in the dark!! From the movie, Star Wars The At At ...maybe it's me, but I just can't part with these. Erik spent hours playing and d

Thursday, May 28th, 2009 5:30 A.M. You will find my Thursday 13 below. Scroll down below this post, please. Or, CLICK HERE We got some more rain! The clouds rolled, got dark and ominous. Thunder clapped, lightning resounded over a long period...it was wonderful. It's funny, living in the subtropics and we're in a deep drought, and the rain is wanted so badly....everything was perfect yesterday afternoon. The morning began very still, hot and humid. We'd walk out the door and break out in a sweat; doing nothing....I knew it was coming. This area needs it!! And the weather forecast for today is more of the same. Let 'er rip!! There is nothing like rainstorms on such parched land. We, in our area of the city, got about an hour and half of steady precipitation. The county on a whole is about 8 inches below normal of moisture. So, all we can get is much appreciated. Which made me think, during the storm yesterday, it's nearing that time of year agai

What do you get when you cross a bull with a shitzu? Ummmmm..... I won't answer for you; taking the 5th on this one for the fact I may just say something that may incriminate me. You figure it out. Thursday, May 28th, 2009 12: 08 A.M. Well, I then thought I'd go out and find some odd cross bred animals for my 13 subjects this week. I found one site that was incredibly odd, and eerie at the same time. The photography work on these photos [or effects, I haven't a clue on the concept of 'how'] is amazing..... [the photos borrowed are not intended to infringe on their copyrights - no enhancements or changes made by me in any way - they are not my property - I give credit to the photographers only] Here's my favorite... 1] Cabbit 2] A Frippo 3] A frogodile 4] A Squinocerous 5] A Parrodile 6] A Zebrull 7] A Walrot 8] A Chimpino 9] A LIZIRD [love the play on word pronuncia

Wednesday May 27th, 2009 5:05 A.M. Wordless/Wordful Wednesday photos below this test. Scroll down, or CLICK HERE to skip the test. Instructions: Look at the picture and try to find at least one picture of a dog. Here are some comments from some people who took this test: "I couldn't see a dog and I stared at the picture for a good 10 minutes." "I think it is one of those pictures where you have to stare at certain spot and then everything comes into focus, but it never happened to me. I'll give it another try later." "I almost didn't find the dogs at all!" "There is a dog in this picture? Where?" "This must be a joke; there are no dogs in this picture." The average reaction time for men appears to be a lot smaller than that for a woman. The following are average times for men and women: Women: 12.46 minutes Men: 1.23 seconds Hint: The dogs appear to be white with black spots. Good luck and happy hunting.
