Just bought some good red wines from southern France: anyone a conniseur on such ?
or "roadside entertainment". what some people will do for laughs is simply amazing. i'm driving home today on a two-lane county hwy. and i see something shiny up ahead on the side of the road. as i get close to it, i slow down and start laughing; the shiny object is a big "get well soon" mylar balloon floating about 3 ft. above the roadkill deer to which it was tied :D . I'm still laughing trying to picture the thought process of the tie-er.
thanks for the hilarious mindblow today whoever you are!
of a few weeks of blazing color refresh the palate of my mind. So soon it is all greys, whites and blues of winter bluster.
ash, maple, hickory, sumac. autumn is always a nice, simple reminder from mother nature of how there's so much more than what meets the eye. just like sunlight is comprised of different combined colors,the pigments responsible for the beautiful, endless shades of reds, yellows and orange are there from the birth of the leaf in spring, but with chlorophyll being the predominant pigment, all we see until autumn is endless shades of green. also, although miniscule in comparison to the combustion of carbon based sources, it is at this time of year that the largest natural and continuous release of carbon monoxide occurs, due entirely to the degradation of chlorophyll...........(not a plausible excuse for over-sleeping though, as i found out today from my still current employer :D). so there's that.
I also wanted to say to ramble-on74 that i'm kinda new here, but i know exactly how you feel. most of my time (every day) is spent feeling confused, but on ocassion (every other day :D) that dumb feeling sneaks in and rears its head (humility, i guess), anyway, welcome back.
Nice to see you again as well, marye and CB! Not to overlook CC either! Is there a new season of the smash Deadhead Reality series False Alarm in the offing? Hmmmm???? And a hearty Hey Now to Ramble_on74 as well!
And now that most of my OS patches and upgrades have been downloaded and installed perhaps I can actually start using this machine for its intended purpose - yukking it up around here! Oh, but there's also that whole new recent regimen of putting in 14 - 15 hours a day six days a week as a Personal Transportation Facilitator. But I will be around more often, so fair warning!
No worries. Not uncomfortable at all, just a little puzzled for a moment. Always heppy to see all friendly folks here.
you feeling at home, it's a good thing. No worries.
Sorry badger, I guess u were talkin to mr. pid, not me. But anyway, i still feel welcome. Didnt mean to make u uncomfortable. Have a glorious day. Ramble_on.
Thanka badger. Makes me feel good that I was gone but not forgotten. Hope all is well on your end. I sure I missed more than some organized chaos, but I can definitely respect what u said. So much of it u r used to it. Hope that u r having a wonderful evening, and make sure u answer me back pronto. Have a glorious day, and be kind!!
Welcome back. You were not forgotten on my part anyway. Hard to summarise what you have missed. Mostly the nornal tsunami of problems, bad communication, misery and recrimination traditionally associated with all new releases of Grateful Dead music! We are so used to it we would miss it if it didn't happen.
