Words Play

Image by SnaggleTooth May 2017



Summer here today,

Get outdoors,

Go play.
Image by SnaggleTooth May 2017

Warmth sighs,

Humid tears up,

Sun in her eye.

A Smiley face

Windows open

So hot this place.

Fly buzzes the room,

Flutter moth,

Climbs the moon.

Image by SnaggleTooth May 2017

Cool Return,

After break,

Arm sunburn.

Image by SnaggleTooth May 2017

Pretty plants,

Buzzy bees,

Sugar ants.

Image by SnaggleTooth May 2017

Pollen itchy eye,

Ka-choo tissue,

Skeeter gotta try.

Image by SnaggleTooth May 2017

Peaceful nap,

Mowing stopped,

Book in lap.

Outdoors Up

Open Mouth

In the back of the garden there are Worn dirt bike tires around a worn table. My feline friend found the purrfect nap spot...but this was one month ago, just altered this week.

Just a beautiful 2 Days Off... Sniffing from mucho tree pollen. Lots of mosquito bites too. Looking forward to buying a new window screen with no holes. Got a new fan today, n found shorts n short sleeves.

Off to enjoy a hot stroll home...

Mud Season

Image by SnaggleTooth May 2017

After weathering almost weeks of daily spring clouds n rains I almost feel amphibious. Despite cool-ish temps, a few squash seeds I planted outside have begun to sprout. I spied some ever-bearing strawberry blooms yesterday. There's plenty of flowers like Phlox n Tulips in gardens out there in time for upcoming Mother's Day.

Image by SnaggleTooth May 2017

 I have no plans for that besides work, n trying not to get too sentimental about missing my mother 17 years now.  I do miss the phone calls to chat we used to have in the old days the most.  I really hate getting cell phone cut-offs here, n make few calls these days, most outdoors where the signals are stronger.

Image by SnaggleTooth May 2017


Looks like the week-end bbqs will be a washout for the Mom holiday this year.  I'm hoping the upcoming storm will push the gloomy pattern out to sea so we can get warmer here.

Image by SnaggleTooth May 2017

My window tomato seedlings are about 5 inches high n soaking up from a plant light when I'm home. Hopefully I can keep them happy a few more weeks in here. I've had the little heater on these chilly nights lately.

Altered pics today are of a frog dec from the Dollar Tree hanging out in the garden. His brother is chime-less, n hanging in my window to cheer up folks coming in the front door. I had pics of it with reflections on the windowpane somewhere but can't find the file. Losing things is one of my recent hobbies, n then wasting time searching n not finding it when I want to use it. Just too tired out from work n little sleep with so much noise here.

Image by SnaggleTooth May 2017

I reverted to my older method of changing texture n color before using the mirror this round. Also, I have weeded n cleaned much of the garden since then. That's the strawberry patch full of weeds in back of the fence. The cats n I are hanging out there alot, as no one else wants to garden this year.

Image by SnaggleTooth May 2017

I got a cheap Catnip plant for my kitty friends. Of course the cats think the garden's the worlds biggest kitty box!

Image by SnaggleTooth May 2017

I just want some peaceful time outdoors n free food. N frogs, I like frog decs.

Have a good Mother's Day this week-end, despite missing Moms, naggy Moms, n the wet weather.

May May Be Better

Image by SnaggleTooth 2017

This week, I'm so tired out from the previously predicted missed sleep while still continuing the night job, I probably shouldn't bother posting.


I needed to return a dvd to the library anyhow. plus it's not raining! I did these few altered pics last week, n found some old jokes That got a chuckle out of me again. I'd forgotten them from an email saved in a 2006 folder. I've been looking thru my old pc recently trying to find some lost pics n text. My old blog buddy, G.B.Miller, (now on tumblr) used to do this decade old re-joking sometimes.

Image by SnaggleTooth 2017


Blonde jokes have always amused me. I was born blonde, n tho my hair has  darkened thru the years n looks more brownish (plus grey ) recently, I still claim, to be dirty, brassy blonde. There fore, I claim the right to insult myself with these. My brain has definitely been mush recently! Enjoy:

BLONDE LOGIC

Two blondes living in Oklahoma were sitting on a bench talking........ And one blonde says to the other, "Which do you think is farther away..........Florida or the moon?"

The other blonde turns and says "Helloooooooooo, can you see Florida...?????"

CAR TROUBLE

A blonde pushes her BMW into a gas station. She tells the mechanic it died.  After he works on it for a few minutes, it is idling smoothly.   She says, "What's the story?"
He replies, "Just crap in the  carburetor"
She asks, "How often do I have to do that?"

SPEEDING TICKET

A police officer stops a blonde for speeding and asks her very nicely if he could see her license.

She replied in a huff, "I wish you guys would get your act together. Just yesterday you take away my license and then today you expect me to show it to you!"

 RIVER WALK


There's this blonde out for a walk. She comes to a river and sees another blonde on the opposite bank. "Yoo-hoo!" she shouts, "How can I get to the other side?" 
The second blonde looks up the river then down the river and shouts back, "You ARE on the other side."

Same pic as above without changing the color.

AT THE DOCTOR'S OFFICE

A gorgeous young redhead goes into the doctor's office and said that her body hurt wherever she touched it. "Impossible!" says the doctor.  "Show me." The redhead took her finger, pushed on her left breast and screamed, then she pushed her elbow and screamed in even more. She pushed her knee and screamed; likewise she pushed her ankle and screamed. Everywhere she touched made her scream. The doctor said, "You're not really a redhead, are you?

"Well, no" she said, "I'm actually a blonde." 
"I thought so," the doctor said. "Your finger is broken."

BLONDE ON THE SUN

A Russian, an American, and a Blonde were talking one day. The Russian said, "We were the first in space!"     
The American said, “We were the first on the moon!" 
The Blonde said, "So what? We're going to be the first on the sun!" 
The Russian and the American looked at each other and shook their heads. "You can't land on the sun, you idiot! You'll burn up!" said the Russian.

To which the Blonde replied, "We're not stupid, you know. We're going at night!"

KNITTING

A highway patrolman pulled alongside a speeding car on the freeway. Glancing at the car, he was astounded to see that the blonde behind the wheel was knitting! Realizing that she was oblivious to his flashing lights and siren, the trooper cranked down  his window, turned on his bullhorn and yelled, "PULL OVER!"
"NO!" the blonde yelled back, "IT'S A SCARF!"

IN A VACUUM

A blonde was playing Trivial Pursuit one night. It was her turn. She rolled the dice and she landed on Science &Nature. Her question was, "If you are in a vacuum and someone calls your name, can you hear it?"    

She thought for a time and then asked, "Is it on or off?"


TIME FOR THE DOGS (I changed the original title)

A girl was visiting her blonde friend, who had acquired two new dogs, and asked her what their names were. The blonde responded by saying that one was named "Rolex" and one was named "Timex."

Her friend said, "Whoever heard of someone naming dogs like that?"
"HELLLOOOOOOO......," answered the blond. "They're watch dogs!

There must be new ones out there to do with newer devices ...  Plus I should research how sound waves travel in a vacuum. I know we can hear pulsars n send radio signals... Yawn - Sometime after my nap maybe ...  zzzz

Rushing About

Image by SnaggleTooth April 2017



April showers have been doing an encore all week long, n the spring flowers are doing a good job of filling in the scenery with color.

Image by SnaggleTooth April 2017

None of these pics are my flowers, n I miss all the perennials I had at the old place, especially the purple Lilies of the Valley. I tried to bring some here in a pot, but they didn't make it through last year. I'm trying to get seedlings in my room big enough to move out doors without buying some already started. No seeds I planted outside are up at all yet.

 I saw alot of local wild turkeys around this week, n hope they don't eat my plants before I can cover it. Also saw some huge slugs in the garden already. They love the rain. I'm going to try beer baits in the strawberry patch this year. They did a number on the fruit last year.

Don't know why I'm still motivated to work on the plants. It's tough to be gone at work so much time n try to keep up with it. Really tho, I like the free food, being outdoors, n enjoy the beauty. Just wish I could get the critters not to mess with it. Maybe I should've been a farmer. But then the slugs n caterpillars would make me cry n lose money... I like when it starts producing n how it feels when you can't eat it all n start giving it away.  




Image by SnaggleTooth April 2017

Work is going crazy with folks calling out all the time, n I have been getting a sore neck since returning last week. No idea why, because I'm doing it all the same. Maybe I should get new pillows. Sleep is definitely going to be lost more already.  

Image by SnaggleTooth April 2017

Yep, I'm right back to feeling rushed around in my free time again. Several birthdays to get ready for have me cramming in extra errands n getting up n out earlier. There are folks to visit over the week-end, n expected family visitors from out of state to make time for all the upcoming month.

Image by SnaggleTooth April 2017

I really like these original color, mixed up- looking flower petals! Above is a close-up crop of this one.

I'm getting tired just thinking about all I'll be doing, better go n rest up after my walk home.

Oh yay, the sun just came out....

Surprises

Image by SnaggleTooth April 2017
A couple of odd things happened recently, I'd never expect.

I finally got a new Dollar Tree dec last week to replace the autumn leaves visible in my window from the front porch, I went out to see how the new thing looked from there n noticed a glob of drippy, running goo on the inside center of the window glass obscuring the view.



Image by SnaggleTooth April 2017Image by SnaggleTooth April 2017

I hadn't sprayed anything there for insects or anything, n have plants to water there. But I hadn't seen it earlier due to a bin on a shelf infront of it. The mess on the glass kind of looked as if it were lumpy, clear bird poo, n ran all the  way down to the windowsill. I got out some vinegar n paper towel to clean the sticky stuff, when it finally occurred to me what it was.

 The first winter after I moved here, I put some snowflakes on the windows. It had to be one of those silicone, gummy, self-stick, peel-off, clear ones, all disintegrated!

I guess it had bio-degraded...?

Last week, I had time to walk on the village beach n feed the gulls. I brought  some old bread from work with me n had the camera ready. But as I was going from the beach house building to the place I saw gulls by the water's edge, Another person walked by me on what had been an empty beach when I'd arrived. 


Of course I said "Hi," n the young probably late 20-something guy started asking me questions. He was clearly a mentally challenged person, perhaps with a mild disability to be out here unsupervised.

He asked me If I liked sports, n which sport the best, so I answered about Baseball n how good the Patriots have been recently. Then he asked me if I watched fighting, or wrestling, or was interested in martial arts with kick-boxing tournaments.

Image by SnaggleTooth April 2017

So I said I don't watch fighting much, n no, I don't have a favorite fighter.Then he asked who in my family I'd want to fight, older or younger, n would I want to hit them with their stomach open or closed, n just got my brain in a knot, not wanting to relay that I'd never do that n didn't want to talk about that.

Image by SnaggleTooth April 2017

Plus I had limited time left. So I stopped answering him, explained that I wanted  to feed the gulls, n had just waited over a year to do this, excuse me please -

So I turned around, ignoring him, n started with the gulls n camera.

After a few minutes I saw he had continued to the bluff stairs. 

All I could think of after that was, "Whose kid was that? n What would they think about so much gung ho fighting talk coming out of him? Pumping up strangers to go beat the heck out of someone... a very strange conversation that was!"

 For the first time in years I had take-out Chinese food from a near by place last week. I've been opening extra fortune cookies every few days. (I still have one left).

Monday my fortune cookie read :

"Financial hardship in your life is coming to an end"

So I laminated that little piece of paper using wide packing tape, n put it up where I have to see n read it often. The best fortune ever!
