Boats on the Creek


I know.

You wish you had a pair of sunglasses. Here, take mine.

My apologies for the glare.

If you squint and avoid the upper right corner of the photo above, you'll see a boat on the creek I live on.

An exquisite boat.


Of course I'd call the boat above out of focus exquisite too.

Same with the one below.

(Except this one is way out of focus.)

During this particular excursion, whenever I tried to snap an in-focus shot, which was nigh on impossible from my vantage point, I became indignant impatient and uttered a few bydammits.

For those unfamiliar with the "Oh By Dammit" expression, please click here for that story.

May your Friday be free from out-of-focus photos and bydammits.

It's Friday! What are you doing this weekend?

Same as most days,sitting on the porch watching life go by, except for the on-going house cleaning, and helping take care of my mother. Her vascular dementia is progressing at a dreadful rate.
Enjoy your vacation! Forget about that old list for a week:)

I wanted to start my weekend early by calling in sick today but then remembered that I want off the Friday of Labor Day Weekend (that I thought was next weekend) so I couldn't have 2 Fridays off in a row. Then while typing this I realized next weekend isn't Labor Day weekend and I could have been sick today. Other than that, big ghost hunt Saturday and gloriously NOTHING on Sunday which is nice. Enjoy the beach!

We are heading closer to your neck of the woods! We are visiting my mom in Lynchburg for the weekend. And I LOVE the first shot, sunglasses needed and all.

I am going to get busy and write the syllabi which I need for Tuesday. Then again, I wonder if I have anything going on Monday...

Hopefully, I am not being cranky this weekend since I had quite a cranky day on Thursday!

瑰潼 must've forgotten something. He came back to add it. I think it was very 可是每一剎那又都是新的。

Driving 40 miles round-trip for a lug of peaches. Feeding cats. Scanning a buttload of old photos for my baby brother's 40th birthday slideshow. Crying that I'm old enough to have not one but TWO younger brothers in their 40s. Happy vacation, CBW!

Foolery owes me a keyboard

Today was Dip Day for poor Rose which means poor Daryl cleans the apartment. This apartment has been cleaned more often and more thoroughly these past weeks than in the lifetime we've lived here. ToonMan tooned it twice so be ready for those no one gets 'em jokes ... He does the dipping, I do the cleaning and we take turns keeping .. I just realized I am writing a post. Sorry ..

My weekend will include a massage tomorrow prior to beautification™ ...

Wine.

The weekend includes putting 50,000 more baby oysters into the water. In about a year they'll be on the dock again. As for your focus issues, what type of camera do you use?
