On Thursdays I give myself and anyone reading permission to spout off three random things, even though most everything written here on any given day is a volcanic eruption of random thoughts. Thursdays are different. The randomness is encouraged, allowed, supported, and expected.
I'll go first.
1. Photographs from the organizers of Saturday's 10K race came in an email last night--available, of course, for purchase. Why in the world I'd want a picture of myself struggling across the finish line after running 6.2 miles in the rain while wearing a crab hat is well beyond my comprehension. I'd have to be insane to actually pay money for such a monstrosity. No. Thank you very much.
2. The dogwoods are bursting with blooms this week. My drive to and from work on the Colonial Parkway, a leisurely, highly-enforced 45 mph drive which overlooks the York River, is made even more pleasant by these beautiful white blooms sprinkled throughout.
3. Depending on how much my camera costs to be repaired, I may have to buy a new one. Initial reports back from Canon indicate that I have an older/outdated model that may not be worth repairing. (What Canon doesn't understand is that everything I own is outdated. Cell phone? Circa Car Phone Era. Have to tap out text messages like Morse Code. No keyboard, just a number pad. I can only function with outdated stuff. Everything else is too confusing. By the way, the camera they call "old" is only 5 years old. Even if a camera's age is measured in dog years, that's still young. But of course the chances of a camera's technological life and a dog's life being measured equally are, well, OK FINE. My camera is old.)
Until I acquire a new or (likely) refurbished camera, you can expect one of two things on this blog: a month or more of pictures from my crabbing adventure and/or recycled photos from the past 4-5 years.
Now it's your turn to share three things no matter how
