My world, for me but you can spy.

Smile for the Phone

Having a camera handy on a cell phone makes for an eclectic collection of pictures.  Here are a few highlights from the last month.

One more nugget from the recent travels, Bloomdale, Oh has a kick butt playground with old school teeter totters, those crazy animals on springs and swings which I managed to get queasy on. Plus, trains seem to be temporarily stopping next to the park due to the construction at North Baltimore’s intermodal. I even managed to catch a few cars with the old Chessie System cat. The visit was a throwback to younger days for sure.

Here’s the Google Street view for those curious.

School’n Time

I have a lesson for the person who tried to steal my hubcap while I was at work today.

Those four metal things in the middle are called lug nuts and they are used to hold other things together. They do a pretty damn good job wouldn’t you say?

Enjoy the dirty hands you dolt.  Test Monday.  Class dismissed!


Happy Labor Day

Celebrate the day with some insights from Mr. Dirty Jobs himself Mike Rowe then continue the party over at mikeroweWORKS.

Find Your Unwind

Work’s been crazy, Cherie’s teaching nights, allergies have been holding my nose hostage and I’ve been more caffeinated then I should be.  I’ve been a steaming ball of cranky lately struggling to unwind but tonight I’ve broken free if only for an evening.

Tonight’s recipe for those curious.  It’s one part Dortmunder Gold discovered in the depths of the fridge, one part Acoustically Delicious echoing throughout the house and an unsuspecting flower in a coke bottle to photograph.  The combination will never work again but it’s doing the job tonight.

Flick of the Hand

I let a truck pull out in front of me on the way home Friday. The driver showed his gratitude with a wave followed by a peace sign. The latter made my day!
