Well, maybe one — S..T!

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

The New Sculpture Garden At The St. Louis Art Museum

If you have visit this site before, you have undoubtedly seen the front entrance of the St. Louis Art Museum on multiple occasions. Well, this is the backside that has recently transformed into a spacious plaza for special events and also serve as the museum’s new sculpture garden. Here’s a quick sample of some of the works on display in the garden.  I took notes so I could supply captions for each sculpture, but I can’t find my second sheet of notes. Will correct after my next visit.

Memorial Day … The Unofficial Start Of The 2015 Summer Season

After a Sunday evening filled with wall-to-wall video weather wizards spouting impending dire doom from potential tornados that might be lurning in the storm darkened skies, the sun came up on a bright and sunny Monday Memorial Day. Of my seven real uncles (I don’t count my five uncles by marriage as real uncles) five served in WWII and I salute them for their service.

My favorite was  the youngest and my namesake … Uncle Jerome. OK, you ask,  how could an uncle named Jerome be the namesake of a guy named Robert? Thank a busy-body nun at Sacred Heart Grade School who was convinced he would have a far, far better school-life if he went by his middle name (Robert) than his given name (Jerome). I thank that un-named nun, too, Because by the time I popped into the world, his entire family was calling him Bob instead of Jerry.2 bobs

He was also my favorite uncle, too. And when he was old enough to join the WWII military, he joined the Navy!Sailors Two

OMG, shades of the Village People before their time!

My Uncle Bob was my last surviving uncle. He passed away early this year at age 89.

MONDAY MORNING SCREENSAVER

Woke up this morning in my usual Monday Morning Grump manner and turned on the Mac to check my calendar for today.MondayMorningScreensaver

The screensaver helps, but the grump lingers on.

Remember this?

Magic Coin

When was the last time you saw one of these? Do you realize that an entire generation has grown up not knowing what a silver dollar is?

Mlle. Renee’s New Toy Box

ToyBox

Due to the overflow of old toys she refuses to throw away, I had to build my faithful companion a new toy box. Now if I can only get her to pick up all the toys see scatters on the floor looking for the one she wants to play with.Sleeping In

Oh, by the way, due to the chill this morning she decided to sleep-in.
