TEN DAYS TO CHRISTMAS – DAY TWO

My photo countdown to the celebration of Christmas … Day Two! While simplicity dominated the outside of the front door, I sort of went overboard with the inside … from an oversized stocking (hung with care) to a special guest appearance of a frosty snowman.Interior Door

And yes, Mlle Renee thinks the Snowman should be one of her play toys.

I Painted A Door!

And I was able to finish before the three days of rain started.

Just when I was about ready to yield the battle of the endless falling fall leaves … VICTORY is in sight and the trees  that surround the backyard are almost bare. (Thankfully, the wall of cedar trees don’t have leaves to drop.) But VICTORY over most of the tree leaves did make a very colorful fall photo.

WORDY WEDNESDAYS!

I don’t hate the telephone. I just have an aversion to most of the people who call me on it. I don’t like people who want to sell me something, people soliciting money, people who want me to vote for somebody, people who want me to join their church, people who can’t speak English and finally who cannot get my name right. Gee, that is just about everyone who calls me. Today’s call was a combination of several of the dislikes. Phone rings … “Hello” … “Mr. Elder?” … “it’s Edler — e – d – l – e – r!?” … “So sorry. Mr. Edwards?” … “No, it it’s ED! LAIR!” … “That’s what I said, Mr. Edwards!” … “Never mind, what do you want?” … “We’re soliciting funds for the homeless tree frog refuge … ” … GOODBYE!!!”phone-ringing-clip-art-1413353

THE DAILY POST WORD PRESS WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE CREEPY

This week, show us something creepy — because hey, we can’t take photos of rainbows and puppies every day. Well, okay, I guess we can. But let’s branch out anyway! (For more information go here.)

Ok, since everyone thought my first post of an unstuffed cow to this week’s photo challenge was more cute then creepy. I decided to post this one that is sure to make you cringe. I shot it Saturday night in my backyard. By the way, the web was over three feet wide!. I didn’t measure the spider.

FAREWELL FAITHFULL SALLY!

My faithful computer of some ten plus years was retired last week. Unfortunately for me, I didn’t do a mass save of everything on old Sally iMac before I turned on the new as yet unnamed replacement. So now I’m in the process of doing it piece by piece. Boring and time consuming. Worse yet … I haven’t found spellcheck yet! So please forgive any typos. Oh, I just gave the new computer a name … Minion J. iMac! And to celebrate the official naming … the first photo to go through the new computer.DSC01442
