In a Fog


I’m in a Fog today

Can’t seem to find my mind

Looked on the ground it wasn’t there

Thou I realized I was wearing one left shoe,

one right boot

I have been to the PO and to the mall

Oh, I think I better head home

Maybe my mind is there ?

Or at least, there should be one right shoe and/or one left boot

Note to self: add more light where you get dress

Quotes Lost On Me – In and Out of Windows


p1050477

“It’s not the Problem that is the Problem

It’s how you handle the Problem

That’s the Problem”

I’m sure this is  clear to some folks, but  it is lost on me

But maybe that is why this business isn’t there anymore?

It reminds me of a time many years ago, when I worked at a boat building shop.

The business wasn’t doing well and the managers decided to hold a “Morale building

meeting” and one of the first things said was “you carpenters are a dime a dozen”

It certainly built my morale

It is nice to dream of traveling the world

In search breathtaking sites

Yet most of us, it is just a dream

So to wander local

To see the beauty close to home

It is what  most of us can do

Sometimes just minutes away

For there is always something new  and beautiful to see

For me a visit to the river and one of my favorite native trees

The black gum tree – Nyssa sylvatica

 

Looking In and Out of Windows -Arts and Craft


dsc01402-2

Looking in and out of windows

Downtown’s where small shops still remain

Store front windows with their displays

To entice passerby’s to maybe to stop in

Where malls and internet shopping have replaced downtown’s

And many have declined

Empty store fronts  only make for the  remaining stores that much harder to survive

There is a charm to old window displays

Whether you need or want something or not

So a fool with a camera, taking pictures of the oddest things

Hope you don’t, I might as well share

High bounce ball

Endless games to play

Stick ball

Where manhole covers are bases

circles

Large circles chalked on the payment
