After a long period of camera avoidance, I finally found something I wanted to take a pic of outside the kitchen window. Sunrise over the boat ramp beach at B-cove was so colorful, I opened the side window n zoomed to get a decent shot.

Although days have been crazy warm here for the end of November, early am.s have been chilly. I loath letting the expensive, minimal heat out, but the windows always fog up overnight, plus need a washing to get a pic thru them.

So many folks have been out on the road between 1 to 2 am on the way home this week-end, probably shopping or working overnight. I'm not participating in any holiday shopping this week-end. I avoid the commercialism of the holiday.

On the news there were reports of crazy violence at Walmarts over that stuff- so sad folks get so angry over things. I don't have a flat screen tv, or Playstation, or wii here. That's ok with me because I can live without it.

Did you hit any good overnight sales? n if so, what did you get?

Thought for the day:
It's not what you have, it's what you do with it...

Sun, rain,

Feel the wind,

Have a job.

Even if at a distance
Or on a small screen

Between wet n dry sand at the front beach back in October, I spied my Shadow on a cold beach walk on the way back from the Post Office n little, village market, n wondered what the altered version could do...

Rainy Day

Image by SnaggleTooth Nov 2011
An image saved from the beginning of the month here, to cheer up all the rain torrents of the day.
As I prepare to work another stressful week, I want to remember how this makes me feel. It has so many unrealized distinctions From the original-

I would've liked to walk the beach again...

Mid Nov Pics

Image by SnaggleTooth Nov 2011
Here's a branch of a very tall shrub in the yard n it's altered cousin, which I really like. We're having such good temps again it's tough to imagine what mid-November is usually like.

So many movies are coming out now I want to see, I wish I had more bux to see them all. There's a new Pirates of the Caribbean On Stranger Tides out on DVD, The Last Harry Potter DVD installment, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part II, n also a new Twilight saga, Breaking Dawn Part I in the theatres. I particulary enjoy movie series.

They remind me of how watching TV shows used to be like when I was growing up- I'm very bored with basic channel pickings, n miss the ongoing stories told in The Brady Bunch, n Happy Days. MASH, Taxi, Alf, ER, these are the shows that made sense to me n grabbed my attention. Who could forget how hilarious Three's Company and One Day At a Time were to see? I also miss the X-files n Star Trek spin-offs.

But all I get to see these days are re-hashed Law & Orders, no match to the old Hill Street Blues, or Forenic shows a shadow of Quincy MD with Jack Klugman. Then we had good Western series with Little House on the Prairie n Doctor Quinn Medicine woman. There were so many good series n sitcoms to follow along with in the old days. I have no patience with the reality TV shows on lately.

Image by SnaggleTooth Nov 2011

The networks also had alot of great TV Movie series such as Roots n Midnight, n who could forget the drama of Dallas n Knots Landing? I'm sure there are few young folks who even knew that JR (Larry Hagman) used to Play "Tony*" (*edit- I messed up n typed:"the second Darren" Which was from Bewitched- see G's comment) on the old I Dream Of Jeannie show. (Hope I got all that right- It's all direct from my fried after work* memory banks).

Entertainment simply isin't keeping up a fast enough pace with the new stuff we're ready for, n rehashing ad-nauseum what we've already seen.

If you don't have money for the the 900 channel Cable deal these days, new shows n movies are very limited. I'll soon get to see one of the films I've waited for. Meanwhile I'm getting sick of the already saw that DVD or tv show thought.

I hope you didn't mind my trail down nostalgia tv lane, I miss that ride. Maybe you even remember some of them...

Amber n Magenta

Photo by SnaggleTooth Nov 9 2011
We've just had some incredibly nice n warm days for the second week of November. After the clock got set back an hour this past week-end for EDST (Eastern Daylight Savings Time), I'd thought it'd be easier to get up earlier. However, I've taken immediate advantage of sleeping more instead. Fatigue finally caught up to me.

The first Day Off I slept all the way until sunset knowing I didn't have to be anywhere on time. Errands are few this week, except laundry. Alot of yard work needs to get done, n after wasting a beautiful, 70F day sleeping thru the whole thing, I resolved to get up earlier Day two, n not waste as much pleasant weather.

Before I cleared the clogged storm drain of leaves, worked on breaking down fallen branches, n raked off the front walkway, I snapped a few colorful spots which finally showed up. The top pic is a small tree (10 feet) in the fading sunlight, which sprouted from a stump in the yard of a fave tree the landlord had chopped down years ago- (Yay!).

Locally these are called a "Burning Bush" due to the bright red they become this time of year. They're plentiful on the hill across the road. This is on a corner of those woods right across from my place.

Finally looking like Autumn here on ESR. I'm also really greatful to save heat bux, n see actual sunshine on a Day Off!
I'm about to have a busy few weeks to fatigue me out some more (darn Co-workers taking vacas), n will be daylight challenged as I must leave for work at sundown time now...

Amber n magenta

Leaves leaving
Scatter n scittering

Sinful sunshine

Blustery breeze
Render the sky

Speechless n bare
They were here

Last Year
Amber n Magenta

Short Pier Reflection

Photo by SnaggleTooth Nov 2011

The other day I went to see what the sunset would look like now from the village pier. The Sun was just under the horizon to the right beyond this pic's frame- but the pretty clouds were to the left over the harbor, so I got their reflection around the almost deserted Short Pier. I always like the reflections there.

Then I found this one interesting...
