My backyard looks a little like the surface of the moon today,
stark, desolate and barren,
the result of a very unfriendly winter.
Three weeks ago when I left my house
to join the boat in the Gulf of Mexico,
this severely scarred yard was blanketed with snow,
hiding the amount of work that will be needed to bring this baby back to life.
That's for a later time.
Right now, I'm just going to sit here and enjoy my coffee.
It's been two days since I turned on the news.
No obvious side effects to report.
I'll keep you posted.
Mark my word
I will never be one to post
a "TBT" photo on Facebook.
For those of you who are sane enough
not to know what that is,
it's "Throw back Thursday"
where people post photos of themselves from an earlier time.
I can't think of one reason why
I would want to post a photo of myself as a youngster
wearing clam diggers of the '60's
or bell bottoms and leisure suits from the '70's disco era.
But that's just me.
For for those that do...
they look really really cute.
I've lived 58 years without taking a "selfie."
I thought I better keep with the times,
after all, I joined Pinterest.
So, I thought I'd change my profile picture,
and do so by taking the much talked about "selfie."
So I got my smart phone all ready,
straightened out my arm,
checked to be sure the lighting was flattering,
hit the "capture" button,
looked at the result
and my reaction was
It was scary I tell you.
I don't know who's face that was but it wasn't mine.
My hair CAN NOT be that gray.!
My forehead CAN NOT be that big!
And, who put that hair IN my ears?
I guess the lighting was off.
Here's hoping everyone has a great weekend!!
