“I know this defies the law of gravity,
but, you see,
I never studied law.”
~ Bugs Bunny

“‘Do not touch’ must be one of the scariest things
to read in Braille.”

The third hand on a clock is also the second hand

What if there were no hypothetical questions?

When you close both eyes, you see black
but when you close one eye,
it sees nothing

2am feels more like the middle of the night
than midnight does

Since the ocean has
meat
salt
and vegetables
it is technically a big thing of soup

even I’m afraid of
the things my mind comes up with”

What Do We Mean By Faith?

TheEnlightenedMind622

“To the person who has faith nothing is impossible. It matters not what you may wish to realize or what you may wish to do; if you have faith, it can be done.

But what do we mean by faith? Faith is not a passive belief; it is positive action. It is the power of the spirit within us, acting upon the life, mind, body, and the nature of our being; and by acting through us, it acts upon everything with which we may come in contact.

When we have faith, we do not simply believe in the form or that which may exist in the external. When we have faith, we enter into the spirit of that in which we express our faith. The secret of real faith, and the real power of such a faith, is therefore found in the spirit.”

-Christian D. Larson

this little snake, and he was a little one – about 4 foot long maybe – disappeared

into the abyss between the siding and the wall of the house. I was assured he couldn’t get into the house that way! (Mice can, but…I digress!) Anyway, the next morning there was a present on the front stoop for me. Want to guess what it was? Go ahead, take a wild guess!

If you guessed, poop, you guessed right! Ugg! Oh well, at least it’s a black snake and not something dangerous like a rattlesnake! I need to stick some steel wool up in there to, hopefully, deter it from going back up in there. Steel wool deters mice, so it should deter snakes too!

hope you have a great day!

Friendly Frog

May 29, 2020

Cell phone photo

Taken today
With my cell phone

We got a pretty good storm this afternoon, which enabled me to find this frog and get a photo of him. Or her! The first frog photo of the year!

He was croaking up a storm – no pun intended! Before the storm!

With all the storms around, I can’t get in the pool and clean it like I usually do. I’m just glad that I was able to clean it a little this morning.

There’s always tomorrow, right?

Sorry this isn’t my usual as I am on my cell phone, once again.

Hope you have a great day, night, or evening wherever you may be!

Thanks for stopping by!!

my thoughts for today

taken August 8, 2019
no details

this is a longer read, being at 862 words…

I don’t know why my computer didn’t record the details for this photo. It was taken on my other digital CANON camera, not my CANON EOS Rebel T6 but the CANON EOS Rebel XT. But it is what it is.

I’m going to share my thoughts for today early today. There is so much going on around the country (USA), that it’s hard to focus. I can, and I do, walk away from the news – every day. It’s the only way to function, or at least keep a clear head and not get so stressed about everything.
Some of it is a little political with a touch of religion and totally only my opinion, just a warning. I’m not preaching, just sharing some thoughts. If you just want to look at the photos I’ve included, that’s fine with me.

So, what’s going on?

  • the Corona Virus – part of me believes that a good part of this pandemic is fearmongering. Don’t get me wrong, I believe it is a serious thing. But there are so many other variables that something doesn’t add up. For me anyway. There are too many unanswered questions, or ones that don’t have a really good answer. Why is it safe to go to Wal-Mart to shop, but not Game Stop or Kohl’s? And now that the country is slowly opening back up, there are new factors. You have to wear a mask when ever entering a store or restaurant, but people with lung issues (asthma, COPD, emphasima) shouldn’t wear masks. And, if you’re eating in said restaurant, you have to take your mask off to eat. So, now, you’ve just contaminated the area. When out and about, you can see people, driving alone in their car, wearing masks and gloves. Ummm, everything you’ve touched in the store or where ever, you have now introduced to your car. The guidelines are changing almost everyday. How is it that one could get an abortion, but not go to church? Even in the parking lot, with the sermon live streaming? Why send people sick with covid to nursing homes? Why is that yesterday they were saying children didn’t have to wear masks, but today they’re saying 5 and older should wear masks? Why close down the country, when the “normal” flu and abortions have killed way more than this virus? That is, according to which site you go to or who you believe is right as different places have different numbers. I also get that the shut down saved many lives… many, many lives. And then there is the political view – United Nations, the W.H.O, and others. One World Government, the Green New Deal…
    There is so much that at the moment, I’m leaving it at that. I will however, in the near future, pick one question or thought and expand on it.
  • riots – it really saddens me, and urks me. Protesting peacefully is one thing, but destroying property and looting stores? Not ok! So what happened to cause all this? A black man was killed by white cops earlier this week. From what I’ve seen, only one, but there were other cops around, watching or whatever. Why was he killed? He was arrested for using counterfeit money. I guess you would say he was really detained, put in handcuffs and then, for some reason unknown, was pinned to the ground by the knee of a white police officer. He was detained on Monday. The details are still vague. And, it doesn’t matter if the cop was black or white…they still cry!
    Minneapolis is being destroyed. This has been going on for a couple of days now. Some of this rioting and looting, if not most, is being caused by people being bused in. There are groups that will pay people to loot and riot. I don’t know for sure who is causing all the destruction at the moment, but in time we will. It’s not just happening in Minneapolis either. I’ve heard of riots in Denver, St. Paul (MINN), Phoenix (AZ), Louisville (KY), Columbus (OH). I understand that people are hurting and they want justice, but I can promise you that justice will be served. Patience is needed here.
    There are also people (groups) out there that will blame the president. Saying that he didn’t do enough, or he didn’t do “it” quick enough. Somehow, they will try to blame the president, and he has been dealing with this since before he was sworn in. The same thing happened with Covid-19, saying at first he was racist for shutting down travel, then saying he didn’t do it quick enough. That’s all I’m going to say on that subject, for now anyway.

well, I guess that’s only two things, but those are two things that are on my mind right now. Like I stated earlier, at some point, I will pick a question or thought and expand on it.

Never let a good crisis go to waste!

Just wanted to let you know that I made a Pixels page on my site. Pretty much, it’s just a goto page, so you can see what photos I have available there. I also thought you would probably like to see all the options available, without having to leave WordPress.

I’m not going to show every image I have available at Pixels, that would be insane! I have well over a hundred images uploaded to the site, with more to come. I will, however, try and update the page at least once a week. That sounds reasonable, doesn’t it?

I’m still not sure exactly how this is gonna work, but it’s here, it’s public and it’s viewable. The details will work themselves out.

tomorrow is…
