Berry Red Altered


Image by SnaggleTooth Nov2018

Well, Halloween went ok, as I had the Day Off n went to visit BBM n kids in the village. I have been very sore from work, but was able to just relax at their house n leave a bunch of "Unknown" blog comments! Woops!

I watched the "stop motion" film "FrankenWeenie" by Tim Burton, in Black n White format. I was amused by the Dracula, Godzilla, n Frankenstein movie references.

As a Disney film it delivered a quality story too. They have a museum of all the miniatures n drawings used in the film in the bonus materials. The amount of work required to do those animations is huge.

I made a Purple-People-Eater clay-mation stop-motion, short- video film in college once. I used Play Dough, n it took days! Then I recorded guitar finger-picking for the sound track.
I have an idea of the work involved in that film - huge!

TG this week-end is Fall-back" to Eastern Daylight Savings Time, one hour. I so need to  sleep later!  I have been burnt out lately. I haven't had a vaca week since early spring.
Maybe for a week I'll feel more rested...

These colors got me craving homemade cranberry foods. I miss those free ones I used to get working on the bogs years ago. I'll have to pay about $3 per pound, then find time to process n make sauce, muffins, bread, n pie, ect.

Also it's easier to find turkey parts at the market  I want to eat it with. All that canned jellied sauce in a can is full of high -fructose corn syrup. I prefer raw cane sugar n honey in mine.

I like this green one, altho the angle didn't get any berries in it.
It took a long time to do these pics, because the old pc is acting old!
It keeps getting errors at cropping with the mouse, so a few aren't as square as I would like. This was second from the original.

Who couldn't use more green? I haven't hit it big in the lottery yet, but Mega-millions n Powerball huge jack-pots had me dreaming big buying tickets last week. Did you play?


Image by SnaggleTooth Nov2018

I'd love to have cash n time to play with animation films again. Meanwhile I'm stuck trying to pay rent instead of playing with art. N this old pc is making it difficult to get these buttons pushed. Good thing I have patience still...

Below is the original pic, shown last in the previous post.

This is the same as the top, first cropped one. Hope I get to alter more soon!

Red Beginnings

Photo by SnaggleTooth Oct 2018

Just a few leaf pics posted today. Been running out of time to get to the altering this week. If I can get my old PC to co-operate again I'll put some up later.

Vines at the salt-marsh are pretty.

I really like the burning bushes.

Small Maples are coloring now also.

I want to play with these berries in the rotating mirror!
I hadn't been on FB all week, n got so far behind I don't know what anyone is up to!

At least I made it thru a week with the new torture machine at work. I had my doubts.

Have a fun Halloween week. I have it off n have no plans, except eat candy...

Bench

Image by SnaggleTooth Oct 2017

Image by SnaggleTooth Oct 2017This week I'm trying to take it easy, but rest is still difficult to get. Luckily while backing up a thumb drive, I found some benched images from this same month one year ago never posted. That saves me hours of work. that  really don't have time for, plus I like them.

These two make me think about silly-looking aliens...

 I broke the sides off of my thumb-drive's port hole making it difficult to use. especially the home pc with the paint program for making these images from photos.

All the past years stuff was there. I needed a faster pc to back it up, n get this stuff online. so went to the library last week.

The walk home was a complete deluge! One sidewalk was four-inches deep to walk thru. It took all week to dry those clothes in here, n my walking shoes.

More silly aliens here... I have a one-track imagination this week.

Work has replaced a section of the machine I work on with a new back-breaking. crouch alot one. Plus, it has new, heavier screens to lift, getting my muscles very sore. I feel like they are punishing me because I am short.

Image by SnaggleTooth Oct 2017
It's better than the old one in some ways, but just as stress-full n relentless as once the faster production begins, you are stuck there trying to keep up for hours on end. I've already learned about 10 things not to do to avoid parts getting stuck n ways not to get hurt. Most notably, my hands are beat-up. No guitar this week. Boo!

Image by SnaggleTooth Oct 2017
This was a crop used to get the above altered pics.

This week, we're getting a freeze finally. In about 10 days, all the leaves should be turned to fall colors. Only a few plants, vines, n small trees have begun so far. I have a few pics to play with when I get some more time.

Yep, I like these memorial benches placed around the village harbor. Especially the artsy ones. If only I had time to sit a spell on them, I might want one. 

N now another exciting week of "How sore will I get  this time?" coming up...

Harbor View

Image by SnaggleTooth Fall 2018
Image by SnaggleTooth Fall 2018Autumn n October have arrived. There have been just a few cooler nights requiring hoodie use, but for the most part, temps have been warm for New England. No frost yet, so the plants are still waiting to turn, n the bugs are having a field day.

Everyone is ready for Halloween-themed decorating, n stores were set-up for the hand-out candy at the beginning of September. But every time I get to the store to buy a mini-real pumpkin for a buck they are sold out!


Image by SnaggleTooth Fall 2018

For me at work the Fall food jump includes a switch to pumpkin flavor goodies, for which orders are already large. Probably it will keep me sore until after Thanksgiving time. I hate working on those products... They are messy!

I've been polling folks about if I should post a video of a large spider I took during a walk last week fat Halloween time on FaceBook. Would folks get angry about it? I would include an arachnophobia warning for the cringers. I will probably post it, tho. I like it. I do not ever kill spiders.

I have one friend posting her Boa Constrictor support-pet pics, that I'm sure some folks don't like...



Image by SnaggleTooth Fall 2018

So far I've been unable to put my cam videos on blogger successfully, so I can't use it here. They are the wrong format. FB is easy to do for those.
I have little time to play with that, so not posting so much.

I have been absent from FB about 2 weeks now. I plan to spend catch-up time, but it does eat-up too much time.
I'd like to get off the Busy-time train...


Image by SnaggleTooth Fall 2018

That Daylight Savings Fall-back an hour time isn't happening fast enough for me. My hours got changed a bit having me leave for getting there on time at 2 pm, n not getting back home until 3 am. Wish I could take vaca, but not possible yet.

I haven't gotten to any far away festivals for Harvest time, because all the local ones we used to have got axed.

Image by SnaggleTooth Fall 2018

At my place the owner currently has 9 dogs with some loud add-ins this week. That woman is too overboard with this project! It's too much work n I can't sleep through the noise. Then she's getting snippy with me because she's tired, ruining the quality of my limited free time. I can't even read.


Image by SnaggleTooth Fall 2018

I'm way more sleep deprived than her, n she has the power to not take so many animals. She keeps saying she doesn't mind, but obviously she does! Besides that, I didn't sign-up for it, I'm being forced to live with the owner's decisions.
More is going on with stuff I can't stand I won't post, but normal folks would have exploded on her by now.

This new apartment place opened across town, but just the 1 - bedroom apartments are going for over $1600 per month, without utilities. That's crazy living  money...
There is still an affordable housing shortage here, with waiting lists. I would like to move now!
Looks like I have to wait more or get paid alot more.

Image by SnaggleTooth Fall 2018

This is the view from the sidewalk near the main beach in the village harbor. I still go there to pick up P.O. box mail every few weeks.

Hope I can get more peaceful me time in soon so I can stop complaining here... Yep time away is good!
