Random Pictures…13 September 2016!


Fishing on the Columbia River near Astoria, Oregon. The Astoria-Megler Bridge is in the distance.

I’m currently attempting to get my webcam to work…Windows 10 interferes with things that used to be simple plug-and-play, it seems! I could at least get some of the programs to (barely) function on my old computer, once I cranked it up and made it cooperate; this new rig has its own mysteries for me to solve, with or without the computer tech guy! I will figure this shit out…trust me on that!

In the meantime, enjoy these random pictures I took over the past few months, while I maintain an even temperament whilst dealing with frustrating technology. Mercury retrograde isn’t going to thwart me, LOL!

We saved this little frog! He was hiding in the “sun-room” area of the shop, which should be the workout room since it has most of the gym equipment in it. Notice the colouring? All speckled like the concrete that lines the floor – just a tiny strip of green on its back:

The day after rescuing the frog, this interesting-looking beetle decided to say “hello.” I’m not sure if it’s a ground-dweller, a tree-dweller, or a swimmer!

There is a small “water feature” in a corner of the property. Two years ago, we went out and dug up a big hunk of water-lily root that had three leaves on it and put it in the feature for a bit of greenery. In June of this year, right around the Summer Solstice, it looked like this:

During the small heat wave we had at the end of August, it looked like this:

Did you count the leaves?

Speaking of plants, check out this cool little cluster of flowers! One of my happy indoor plants, that I never knew bloomed, has been sprouting these like crazy – I have no idea what the plant is called, but I like these little stars:

Finally, some shots of food…just because!

Now I’m craving sushi…but it’s a two-hour drive away!

      LOL – great minds think alike, I always say…and sushi is a blessing from the gods ands goddesses.

      People think that eating raw meat is strange – I’m one of few who doesn’t mind it at all.

      Hopefully your stomach issues ease up soon and you can have sushi…if so, eat an extra plate for me!

      It was delicious…I love sushi! Oysters on the half-shell are also tops – they’re a luxury item, now that I live far away from the restaurants that serve them.
