Tip of the day: When taking photographs, be mindful of the background. Compose your shot carefully. Remember, a picture is worth a thousand words. And NEVER stand in front of the word COUNTRY!

[The BLOG note: I didn't say it, I don't like to use the word myself, but thanks to DF for bringing this pic to my attention.]

Not A Water Dog

This is our Elke. She hates the water, but she has no qualms about getting the white pool deck dirty with her muddy paws.

It's a good thing we have a pressure washer.

Coffeeholics Unite!

I agree. Even if it is Wednesday, I still need my coffee fix and half a cup just doesn't cut it.

Not Irretrievably "Lost"

The Lost IRS eMails Exist!

A copy of every single IRS email can be found in their server.

Do they think we're that stupid?

Triskaidekaphobia Anyone?

Because posting a photo of a black cat today was just too predictable.

Happy Friday... I hope.


This waterspout hit Tampa Bay on Monday.

Yikes and amazing all at the same time.

Clint Made My Day With This Post

If you realize each day is a gift, you may be near my age. 83.

My Twilight Years ~ Clint Eastwood

As I enjoy my twilight years, I am often struck by the inevitability that the party must end. There will be a clear, cold morning when there isn't any "more." No more hugs, no more special moments to celebrate together, no more phone calls just to chat.

It seems to me that one of the important things to do before that morning comes, is to let every one of your family and friends know that you care for them by finding simple ways to let them know your heartfelt beliefs and the guiding principles of your life so they can always say, "He was my friend, and I know where he stood."

So, just in case I'm gone tomorrow, please know this:

I voted against that incompetent, lying, flip-flopping, insincere, double-talking, radical socialist, terrorist excusing, bleeding heart, narcissistic, scientific and economic moron currently in the White House!

Participating in a gun buy-back program because you think that criminals have too many guns is like having yourself castrated because you think your neighbors have too many kids.
