Mind (and character) in the gutter? You be the judge.

This is a photo of the bumper of the car in front of me in the Starbucks drive-through this afternoon.  It's quite a collection of Leftist and druggie sentiment.  This is the first time I have ever seen someone admit to being a drug-user.  I wonder what kind of people she associates with?  Probably not …

Sunday Stills: Takin’ it Easy with my #Feathered Friends

I will freely admit that our yard isn't quite as enticing (or as large) as Terri's is for birds, due to our many squirrels.  We have one seed-feeder that's squirrel-proof, and two suet feeders.  One suet feeder that would be easy for squirrels to get at, is always filled with hot-pepper suet, which the birds …

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #200: It’s the Little Things

I do like to keep my eyes open and search for little things around me that delight the eye.  How about the humble, useful paper clip?  Who gives them more than a moment's consideration, mainly when you run out?  I did, last week at work.  I had lined up some paper clips on my desk, …

Wordless Wednesday: Flying High

Terri's Wordless Wednesday topic of High #Flight inspired me to go back 12 years, to General Aviation Day at our local Paine Field in 2010.  They had a variety of old airplanes on the ground, and in the air.  The day was what a photographer would describe as "cloudy bright", which is great for taking …

Sunday Stills: What might that Pacific Northwest #Aroma be?

Today's theme is aroma, and pictures that lead you to remember the #aroma of something.   So, I will start with an aroma that is one of my very favorites: the salt tang of the sea.  Since salt water is never more than a few miles away from our home in Everett, Washington, we are …

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #199: Mechanical, Industrial

Working in a factory gives me access to industrial and mechanical items all day long, and ever since I started there in July of 2021, I have marveled at the beauty of the items manufactured, and even the scrap material.  Every so often, I need to stop by the tool room to pick up some …

Snohomish County Health can go pound sand

It's not about "public health" anymore, it's about Control of The Population.  This story and graph appeared in the Mill Creek View, a free newspaper.  The two definitely tell exactly opposite stories.  Which would you believe? The story tells you that the local public health "authorities" recommend that the always-obedient people resume mask wearing indoors …
