Green, Red, n Blue

What I like best about the rotating mirror effect is how it tends to create unusual faces. Most notable to me in this example is an upsidedown Lemur head. There's no way to tell what it will reveal depending on colors n forms or which pics will work better. I waste so much time doing these...

At the beginning of the month on a rare sunny day, I spied two-toned leaves sprouting on the red Maple tree near the Boat Ramp beach. It was so pretty next to the blue sky highlighted in the sunshine.

Plants near my road are way behind the normal summer schedule. I bought some discounted Petunias n Impatiens for under a dollar each at the market, n finally re-planted them today when we didn't get the forecast thunderstorms. After being dead-headed n sitting in the rain all week, they're already coming back n sprouting blossoms. Most of the deck plants are growing slow too.

Huckleberries started ripening n I got some free today out the window. They go from red to navy blue like Mulberries, only smaller. "SnaggleTooth gets Huckleberries" is just so cartooney, n really odd here next to the blue pig with the red nose, ears, n shirt, along with this reallty serious looking dude...

Trees truelly are a wonder, along with this finding.

Crazy Week

Image by SnaggleTooth June 2011
Every summer the blogosphere noticeably slows down. Even my posting has gotten lighter. Once the weather finally breaks, everyone gets out to enjoy outdoors. It's been still fairly cool n rainy here, up until this week.

The Week-end visitors are making themselves noticed around town.

On the way to work yesterday, the car in front of me stopped right in the middle of the D-bridge just to enjoy the view! They should've gone ahead another twenty feet n pulled over in the little dirt parking area... Not everyone is off for the week-end enjoying a leisurely Sunday drive.

Image by SnaggleTooth June 2011Then there's the nasty to navigate main state road with splits n one-ways, where 5 route inter-changes have confused folks from the right suddenly cutting me off for a sudden left, while I'm in the correct lane for continueing forward. A slightly un-nerving daily hazard now.

At the gas station yesterday were two young men on motorcycles argueing over if they were supposed to go route 495 or route 25. I didn't even hesitate to speak up n interrupt with the info that it was the same exact road, re-named as it approaches the canal. I sure got them to stop argueing in a hurry... I need some peace before I start my hectic, long night of chaos.

After the week-end are the easiest order nights all week. Summer-time's here tho, n the population has doubled (maybe tripled). With schools being out n the part-time residents on Cape, plus vacationers, even easier nights are no longer easy to get thru at work. We have to take advantage of the surge, n rack up extra hours while we can.

We're fast approaching crazy week here, known as the 4th of July week. It's the pinacle of crowded n congested, It begins deflating again right after the fireworks.

The whole world seems to be on holiday, except me again! While bloggers have slowed down recently, I'm no exception. However, it's due to being overworked the next few weeks. Prob I'll get to some more pic posts for you tho... n my reading will slow too. I'd like to be laying on the beach reading, but I'll at least dream about it!

Is this a crazy week for you too?

Another crazy summer order work week-end is zonking me out. It's warm again finally, I may wear shorts for the second time this year...

The Bruins Hockey team won the Stanley Cup this past week. Alot of local folks were excited about it this week. One work guy got to go to the big Duck-boat parade in Boston today before work. A ton of folks got to camp out all day up there.

I had to work so late the past few nights I'm not sleeping much again. I'd turned the tv on before the parade, n managed to sleep only those 3 hours of coverage, so I missed the whole thing. I was Off Weds to see the end of the final #7 game at least. I only really pay attention to hockey because I used to watch it with my Dad in the old Days. I find it easier to watch on tv than other sports.

Back in '70 n '72, I went to the Boston Garden with Dad a few times n witnessed Bobby Orr, Phil Esposito, Wayne Cashman, Derek Sanderson, n Gerry Cheevers Teamwork in person. I remember the names off the top of my head. This year I don't really know the current names without looking it up, tho know some faces even with the rally beards.

It feels good to have a winning local team once in awhile. I think it helps some folks be happier, 'cause even if you can't win, sometimes your team does, n gives you a reason to be enthusiastic, n celebrate. New England teams have had a good run the past several years, definately a perk of living here...

Just wish sometimes I could celebrate with everyone else instead of working all week-end...

Out of the Shell

I really like this one-

I sense a kingly presence...

It's just a crab claw, n two whelk shell remnants placed ontop of a sea-weed covered rock in the M-cove low-tide water when I was toe-dipping in the heat the other day.

Heating up

Photo by SnaggleTooth June 7 2011

We're expecting 90 degree F heat in the New England zone the next few days. June began with cool days tho. I finally got most of the fans washed, openned up the storm windows, put down the screens, n removed the plastic winter insulation. I even finally sprung for some $2 ice cream to put in the freezer. I've been wanting some for a very long time...

Image by SnaggleTooth June 7 2011

I'll be eating mostly soft food for awhile- my tooth n ear-ache problem is more painful again this week after it had been somewhat better last week. Maybe the heat will help a bit- I've noticed cold aggrivates my ear alot, especially after I'm in the walk-in freezer at work.

Weather forecasters are also predicting high ozone levels, which makes my asthma act up more.

Image by SnaggleTooth June 7 2011Thursday my work station prob will be 110F degrees over the newly cooked food... First another Day Off tho. Don't know if I'll even be up to a beach walk or mowing, but I'll play it by ear, if my ear let's me! Hopefully I get to toe-dip at least.

I got another SD card very cheap. Good thing, sunset was sure pretty again last evening... Would've been a shame not to take pics of it!

Stay cool...

Color Speaks

Image by SnaggleTooth 2011
Yellow was stuck in his throat. He couldn't think of words to utter as The teacher pointed n said, "Your turn..."

On the spot, he'd always had trouble with. All eyes were on him. The air became too hot, sweat poured off his head n hands. He studderred n stammmered, "B-b-b-b-b-b-b-b-ut-tt..." He tried again. "I don't know what color wave lengths n emotional state has to do with what we are trying to communicate."

Image by SnaggleTooth 2011

He stood there feeling choked-off from his thinking, short-circuited, n disconnected.

"I'll never make it through this Public speaking class-" He thought as he sat back down. "It's upside-down of who I am!"


Wearing loud colors shouts "Here I am! Don't ignore me!" to others, I notice .

I think my earth-tone preference in clothing suggests my yearning for peaceful harmony with my surroundings, not drawing in much extra attention to myself. I usually wear alot of blues, purple, browns, duller greens, n burgandy reds. I'm uncomfortable wearing colors which attract bees such as yellow, orange, n brighter reds. When performing in a public show type role, tho, I do tend to wear brighter hues n more accents. My clothing depends on the occassion n weather. Color does play a role in how we are perceived, I believe.

Daily tho, I'm comfortable in pocketed Jeans, t-shirt, n an over-shirt with buttons n shirt pockets and/or a hoodie. I like plaids of mixed colors. I don't wear floral prints as a rule, n avoid polyester n clothes with latex touching skin, such as spandex, (allergic). I rarely like the colors of the clothes at the store in my section.

This is another pic of the M-cove From Last Day Off, manipulated n upside-down above.

What color are your prefered clothes lately? Do you prefer dressing in bold or more moderated color on a normal day?
