I know -- I thought I was surely over the beach photos by now.
Then I found this one ... and how could I resist?

this is not a flower.
it is a flower-shaped-brightly-colored-spinner-in-the-wind-thing.

just a wee bit of navel gazing...

Because sometimes you need to wear the Happy Meal box on your head in order to filter out the alien voices.

away at the moment ... so without a camera connection I guess I have to resort to yet another flower photo.

Aw, come on. I HAD to take the picture.
After all, it's a BOWL FULL OF CHERRIES.

my bathtub is a happy place.

So. Let's sit here for a while and just think about things.

(Note -- no flowers so far this week, but this one comes terribly close ... move along, folks, and ignore that spot of purple beside the bench. It's merely an accidental flower sighting.)

my dad used to work on these.
he could tell you all about it.

but then he'd have to kill you.

(so please don't ask...)

...the answer is blowing in the wind...
F/A 18

High Flight
Oh! I have slipped the surly bonds of Earth
And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings;
Sunward I’ve climbed, and joined the tumbling mirth
of sun-split clouds, — and done a hundred things
You have not dreamed of—wheeled and soared and swung
High in the sunlit silence. Hov’ring there,
I’ve chased the shouting wind along, and flung
My eager craft through footless halls of air....
Up, up the long, delirious, burning blue
I’ve topped the wind-swept heights with easy grace
Where never lark nor even eagle flew—
And, while with silent lifting mind I’ve trod
The high untrespassed sanctity of space,
Put out my hand, and touched the face of God.
-John Gillespie Magee, Jr.

The answer my friend
Is blowing in the wind...
Air Force Heritage Flight

F-16 Fighting Falcon

Air Force Heritage Flight.

it was a fun photo day for me today
and now I'm faced with the choice of showing you

2010 05 15_9305ec

I'm opting for cute.

If you want to see creepy, you can go HERE.
(But if you strongly empathize with Little Miss Muffet, I wouldn't advise it...)

Well, yesterday I got so excited about reverse macro photography that I completely forgot to finish what I was doing, which was, of course, posting my photo for the day.

So. Here it is. A piece of hazelnut cappuccino cheesecake for Doug's birthday. Yesterday he turned ... well, let's just say that he has his very own Roman numeral this year, and leave it at that.

Speaking of yummy deserts reminds me of chocolate, which prompts me to show you this bit of yummy chocolate brown photo post-processing.

I keep telling myself no more flowers. Then something else blooms out there, and I'm just lost...
Krispy Kreme rocks

yeah. so.
i pretty much want to move into this krispy kreme restaurant.
for the decor, you understand.

Mother's Day Stack

2010 05 08_9159e

Something pink for Mother's Day.
Happy Day to All!


This is one of my favorite photos of my mom and sisters and me... I'm the very cute, intelligent looking one.
No, not that one ... no, not that one either.
Okay, then. Of the four very cute, intelligent looking females in this photo, I'm the one on the far left.
