I’m back with another round of photos from daily life. My, things have changed both inside and outside since my last post. Outside, we’ve acquired some white groundcover, love or hate it, winter’s here. Personally, I’ve got mixed feelings about winter; I hate the shorter days, but love skiing and the fact that the cold kills off a lot of nasty bugs. Meanwhile, indoors, it’s looking a lot like Christmas, and much earlier than usual this year.
Let’s get this picture show in the air! Onwards Rudolph, Dasher, Blitzen, Prancer, Crasher, Comet, Vixen, Cupid, Dancer, and Donner! Did you spot the extra reindeer?
“Can’t say for sure, Jeb, but I’m sensing a pattern.”
When you answer, “Sure.” to, “Can I borrow your camera, Dad?”
Not even the pouring rain could snuff their evil glow!
“So here we have our, ah, deluxe bachelor street suite. Perfect for the fast-paced lifestyle of a made guy like you. It’s only 49.99 acorns per month . . . nope, no cupules or stalks accepted as payment for the .99 . . . nuts only.
“It’s quaint, and even turns into a swimming pool when it rains! Cool, huh! Hey, buddy, why the face? Look, I’m not buying your story of just wanting to retrieve some dime you dropped in there. And sure, you’ll fit a bit snug, but that’s why you’re getting it for a song.
“I’ve gotta’ be honest with you. Can I be honest? Please, without you freaking out about talking chipmunks? You think you guys have the monopoly on language and capitalism? You do! Don’t you? Pssh! What a schmuck!
“Naw, never mind that . . . what I just said. Fug-get-about-it! Look, you seem like a nice guy, but I’m gonna’ tell it straight. This is the best thing for you. Yah, I hear you going on about the whole, ‘casual attire, out for a walk thing.’ But here’s the thing . . . I’ve been doing this since before this was a thing, and I’m telling you that your whole thing that you’ve got going on here, well that doesn’t holler, Oak Heights.”
It’s been a warm Fall so far here, and most folks are taking advantage of
the weather while it lasts. The white stuff will be flying before we know it.
We just celebrated Thanksgiving, here in Canada, and for us that meant three
family gatherings. Phew! There was plenty of driving, but it was great to sit
and chew the fat; or I guess turkey and ham would be closer to the truth.
I hope you’re all having a great weekend. I hope you enjoy this round of snapshots
and slapstick witticisms.
Your Kung Fu is strong, Mantis.”
