#caturday  Photo: Please stop, I'm bored.Photo: #wordlessonWednesday  Photo: My granddaughter celebrated her 4th birthday at a local swim school last Sunday. Twenty kids raised hell in the pool for the first hour and then adjourned to the party room for pizza and gift giving. The birthday girl sat on a "throne" above the crowd and loved it.
I don't know what was happening here, but it included the whole family.Photo: Apparently it's Fun Bucket Friday. So, strap it on and have fun.Photo: Don't see many Austin-Healeys around here.Photo: This morning I was telling my wife I'd read how potato growing in The Martian wasn't realistic since all potatoes are now treated to prevent sprouting.

One of the bars behind my shop is composed of two buildings joined by a large deck for those who like to party outside.
Last Saturday one was playing rap and the other country. This was the rap side.
Fire marshal says arson.Photo: Art installation or eviction?Photo: Splish splash.Photo: Count the kitties.
This was taken behind my shop this morning. The kittens are from the two sisters I've shown previously. They were born 6-8 weeks ago and this is the first time I've seen them come out from under the building.Photo: #wordlessonwednesday  Photo: Here I am again...at the ophthalmologist's office. Eye became infected, again. Another perk of accumulating years?Photo: Saturday we had the opportunity to attend my 3 1/2 yo granddaughter's first ballet recital. If you've never been to a first recital for 2.5-5 year old it's a hilarious experience. Batches of little girls in make up and tutus, half of them sucking their thumbs, not paying attention, pulling the marks off the stage. They're so un-selfconscious. Great fun :)
My granddaughter knew all her moves, was even showing some of the others what to do during dress rehearsal. We were in for a treat.
When the big moment came and she was lining up with her group she suddenly squatted down and began bawling. The instructor rushed over and her mom left the audience to go back stage where she was hustled off to. Somebody had forgotten to take her to pee before going on stage and she had to go right now.
She still got her flowers, though. Photo: Community service worker.
He looked about 14 years old to me. I asked what they got him for. He said he was caught drinking in public on his 18th birthday. Welcome to (semi) adulthood.
At 18 one can vote,  join the military and sign contracts, but 21 is the legal drinking age.Photo: Assault Life.Photo: Here's one I saw in Atlanta last weekend for #firehydrantfriday   Photo: #wordlessonwednesday  Photo: Dude had great interesting hair.

Quitman is about twenty minutes west of my town.Photo: I'd ask, but she'd probably tell me to start by tossing out the delicious bag of Tom's Spicy Mustard Potato Chips I have beside me.Photo: The shop next to mine sells antiques and other previously owned stuff. They just put up this display. Does it make you want to buy some jewelry?Photo: #wordlessonwednesday  Photo: Yesterday's eye problems didn't cure themselves overnight. In fact, my eyes looked like two pee holes in the snow this morning. Wisely, my wife made me go to our ophthalmologist for meds.
The cat's safe...for the moment.Photo: Morning.Photo: Bye, bye Sophie.
She appeared last October, sneaking around and trying to get some of the dry food I would leave out for the local ferals. She growled if any came near and I nicknamed her Scaredy Cat. Found out she was turned out of an apartment near my shop. She couldn't get along with the owner's other cats.
She'd been spayed  de-clawed  by the original owner who gave her to the folks near me. She was a housecat who grew up with dogs, hence the unusual growling at the local cats.
She decided I was OK and would frequently spend the night in my shop. Being house trained it wasn't a problem.
She would spend time on my lap most mornings for the neck and head rubbing.
About three months ago she got into it with something and had a wound on her leg. That fight was likely was gave her both feline leukemia and feline aids. That combination is rare according to the vet I just returned from having authorized her euthanasia.
She was ~8 years old and drew the shitty end on the stick. Photo: Watch the red bag.

'Fess up, who else had one?Photo: I think I may have just prevented an insurance fraud or at least a major foul-up.
I posted some pics a while back of the vehicle I lightly backed into.  Today I got a call from my insurance company to inform me that they had settled with my victim for ~$3000. The 1996 Mustang had estimated damages of >$2500 so they totaled it.
I said wait a minute, what?? I've got pictures, that can't be right.
And it wasn't.
The current estimate for the bumper tap is now $1100, which I still think is exorbitant.
I don't know what happened to his rear bumper after we parted, but the original estimate included ~$2400 for that.
And he seemed like such a nice young man and was a senior at the uni up the road. Photo: This is a piece of my backyard neighbor's pecan tree that decided to check out my side of the fence last Friday night.
#treetuesday  Photo: From my yard, Saturday morning, 12:20 AM.
Three hours earlier my backyard neighbor's huge pecan tree fell over and caused some annoyance. A few years earlier the same tree dropped a limb that took out my shed. That f#&!!&*$% tree is no longer a problem.Photo: #$%^*!!! I haven't been involved in a car accident involving anther driver for over 20 years. Three weeks ago we had a collision away from home that resulted over $8000 damage to my wife's Prius and today I backed into this Mustang which was invisible in the rear view mirror.

A guy who works next door just pulled it out of 14 years in storage to continue the restoration.
As I recall, that was about the time time he had a custom skateboard shop...and broke his leg. That was bad for business.

Today it probably looked great with the steam rising, the lone
cypress tree in the center and the fog obscuring the homes surrounding the pond.

Sure enough, as I passed the mill pond it was all I expected, plus a flock of geese in V formation flying right at me.

But, I was late, so this is not that picture.
