MY DAILY CALENDAR…DAY 222 – AUGUST 10, 2013

MY DAILY CALENDAR FOR SATURDAY, DAY 222 OF 2013: Today, I actually wore myself out mowing the back lawn. As you know, I’ve been avoiding this chore for the past week … or more. And the task was compounded by the fact that we’ve had more than plentiful rain fall in the past couple of weeks. No flooding locally, but the extra water has given the annoying wire-grass to really take hold and dig in.  In case you’ve never seen wire-grass …wire grass

This is what the nasty varmint looks like, and it has roots that go to China. A regular power mower can not properly trim this grass, so I had to attack each clump of grass with a weed-wacker, rake up the waste and then go back an mow the good grasses with the power mower. And that takes time and quite a few rest breaks in my easy lawn chair in the shade of the many trees. Task completed!

Since this is the weekend, there was no Origami Challenge. So let’s get right the Mensa Puzzle. First the Saturday Puzzle decorated with an origami project from a couple of weeks ago.DSCF0917

A FEW OF MY S.L.A.M. FAVORITE THINGS #5DSCF0846

SCULPTURE 1937 – HENRY MOORE

I don’t know, I’ve got this thing for elephants.

Saint Louis Art Museum Collection Guide – With this work’s protruding, trunk-like front, two small eye incisions, and a surface of mottled gray stone, the sculptor Henry Moore makes a whimsical reference to the form of an elephant. A triangular cleft and a vertically incised line give shape to its stylized body while a projecting rectangular form suggests the animal’s ample hindquarters. Drawing from the anatomy of a living organism, Moore enlivens his abstract compositional approach with references to the biomorphic forms of nature.
