Look what my lawnmower man just came home with … a bigger, badder grass cutting, road grating, snow plowing machine. As you can see the drought left less grass to cut and grass cutting season is almost over. His reply: That’s why I don’t have to start making payments on it until April! What was he thinking?
I think I need to rent the movie, “Think Like a Man,” or he’ll never hear the end of it!
This little donkey seemed so friendly. I think he thought I was going to feed him. The two horses in the pasture bolted but he came right up to the fence and stuck his nose all up in my business. I tried stepping from side to side to get a good profile, and hopefully good eye to eye contact, but when I moved right, he moved right. When I moved left, he moved left. I think he wanted to eat my dangling lens cap. When I didn’t deliver, he gave me this “donkey on the edge” look, so I took the shot, said “That’ll do, donkey” and in two shakes of a donkey tail, I bolted.

Photo of the Week series: Every Sunday in 2012 I will either share a photo from my archives or something new I just can’t wait to get feedback on for future art shows/exhibits.
Blogger participation: My hope is to receive enough input on each week’s photo to later post a Bloggers’ Choice of the Month and wrap up 2012 with a Bloggers’ Choice of the Year.
POLL: Facial tissues with lotion or without?
I pose this question with an apology if I insult some sensibilities, but I just have to get the minutiae … achoo! … congesting my thoughts … achoo! … off my chest, so to speak.
Everyone has their personal preference when it comes to clearing their nasal passages. Both are better than a cloth snot rag tucked inside a pocket, or worse yet, the hold one nostril closed and snort technique. Yet I have a nose to pick (sorry) with tissues infused with lotion.
I concede that they are gentle on the face, especially now during cold and flu season… IF … you are just dabbing the persistent drip, or covering a cough or sneeze. And I’m sure the softer option is a godsend to those who suffer year-round with allergies.
BUT … you can’t clean your glasses with them, they don’t stick to a razor cut, and they glide off the nostrils during the collection process, smearing mucus across your upper lip. It takes a dry tissue to grab hold and adequately absorb what a lotion tissue leaves behind.
Of course this point is moot as far as my best friend is concerned. His first pick (again, ) requires a brawny “quicker picker upper.”
A few “God bless yous” will make me breathe a little easier. A simple “like” will let me know if you still want to be my follower friend. And you can really thank me for not visually illustrating this post by participating in my poll.
