Apropos To An Apparently Disturbing Twitter Conversation

Don’t worry, this isn’t disturbing in itself. Unless sentient amphibians just plain freak you out. In which case: Flee now.

Mmmmm. Debbie Harry.

Wallpapery Shots

As a number of you have expressed an interest in having some of the photos from earlier today (and even before that) as computer wallpapers, I’ve created a Flickr set specifically for wallpaper-worthy shots of mine, so you can use them to your (non-commercial and personal) heart’s delight. The set is called “Wallpapery Shots” and is available here. I’ll add other pictures to the set later. For maximum detail, of course, when you visit the picture you like, click on the “All Sizes” button (update: apparently you need a Flickr account to do access that particular button, sorry, but hey, it’s free! Update update: Just changed permissions so hopefully you won’t need to make a Flickr account) and then click on the link for the largest picture, then download. Most of the pictures are landscape orientation, but some are also portrait orientation (for those of us whose monitors swing that way). Enjoy.

And Now, Today’s Bit of Ambiguous Yet Uplifting Wisdom, From Athena, Age 10 and Five Sixths

Who informs me that she had the following epiphany today, at recess, whilst on the swings:

Though the sun may rise
And the sun may set
There will always be light in the world.

Think about that, why don’t you.

Lopsided Cat Sits For His Annual Formal Portrait

At this time, he will not be entertaining questions from the media. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.

Octoberesque

In which the grass is still green but the leaves and the corn have moved on. And in another week or so neither the leaves or the corn will be there anymore. It’s an in-between time, October is. Possibly why it’s my favorite month.
