Aaackkk

I am such a blog slacker !

Image given to me to lter by MB, 2019


This has been the longest ever since I began blogging in 2005 I have ever slacked...


I was given this pic to alter, but have not yet re-booted the ancient art 'puter to do that. This one is online, but has no paint apps on it, n without a memory stick has about zero usable pics. MB gave me this image last year to play with n I still have not un-jumbled the knot of wires, adapters, mouse, n stuff to even plug it in.

I have been feeling too over-tired n crappy to have any fun with anything. I needed sleep badly today, but was once more robbed of my plan by loud day people in the hall outside my door.

I am amazed the stats even say I am still getting hits here, after being absent 2 months....

Halfway thru Nov I hooked up my new phone, n have been doing fb on that, ignoring the pc. It is way more convenient than blogging, or doing 'puter painting. I hope to get time n ambition back to be able too, but perhaps I will move first, because without sleep, I am too stifled. A Slacker!

Fall Flowers

Weeks it took me to get back to pic playing here! I'm sure bloggers have forgotten all about me by now.

Today 3 hours were spent trying to get the old art program machine to hook up together and work . My sound is gone, think the cat ate the speaker wire under the table. The wire cluster is getting too unruly. Amazing I can even keep the adapters straight, there are so many!!

I am so allergic to Mums, but they looked so pretty on the flower stand outside the market. I knew I wanted to see what my method would do to them...

So much needs to get done in my limited free time now. I'm on a doctor search, my eyes are getting pretty bad, n reading is tough, so I limit my time.

Still working nights in the machine bakery from hell, n unable to sleep consecutive hours due to 10 dogs here currently.

I am so zonked as the air finally cools off. I need a new camera soon. It's pretty messed up. Not many decent pics recently.

FaceBook has sucked away so many hours of my time too! I try to limit it to 2ce per week.

Images before the full photo were made from that version, the following from the crop of it below.
I have summertime stuff to play with later, while I see about a new cam

I'll be back.

MysteryRoll

Film Photo by SnaggleTooth


Before December 2007 when Digi-Cam was aquired, I'd been using disposable, film cams. I was suddenly swept away into shooting seemingly endless digital experiments, n abandoned the unfinished disposables. I had several IP (in progress) at the time. One in the house, one in Little Truck, leftover exposures from an occassion, n thought I'd eventually get around to using all the pics up n develop them before they disintigrated.
.Today I finally went digging in my Cam-basket (Thanks for those baskets, Ellen!) after the Digi's manual which I'd been meaning to read again for awhile. What do ya know, Voila! Another disposable with only a few exposures left!
.
Last year's one-bux Petunias have risen n bloomed this week, n I've been so click-starved it took no time to use up the 3 remaining negative slots. Last time I waited so long to develop film, the pics were all hazy-yellowed, but visible, somewhat.

Film Photo by SnaggleToothI feel like a child shaking a present- I wonder what's in there!? About 8:30 PM now, time to go pick them up-
A hassle-errand I haven't needed to do in ages-
...
Ok, one-hour-photo took two hours, then they forgot to do the CD, n I had to wait around a bit, but at least scored a discount.
.
The Petunia from today didn't come out well- a bit grainy on the old film. Pics taken in 2007 tho seemed to come out alright. I got the pier (top), clamming shots, the playgound, n Thanksgiving with folks in Western MA-

The mystery of finding out what is inside makes it all the more fun, sounds like. I have a couple of those myself - you inspire me to rustle them up and take them in...

wow.. the boys look so small. lol.. I miss finding those old rolls of film too

It's like finding lost treasure. I love the light in the shot of the pier and the kids are beautiful!

Well, this is weird, I have about 4 or 5 of those Kodak throw-away cameras, full but yet to develop. Some I may have had 3 or 4 years. You think they will still be good? They've been in the house (not a 110 degree car.)

Sweet kids. And not sure if that's you or your daughter with the little blondie.

Oh, I had a mystery roll in Bulgaria this week -- thought it might be have flax-seeds in but was told it was a kind of ground millet. Very tasty with dinner!

:)

Lynn, Mystery is good motovation! Finding them in good condition is a challenge- One time I paid for a totally bad roll in my SLR days- when you had to hand-spool it.

MB, I knew you'd appreciate those- Got more from Aunt P's, too- Somewhere in my photos is a barely visible roll-prints of toddler BBM with her hair sticking up- waited 10 years for that one-woops!

Talon, It truelly is- I'm happy the boys were on it. Thankyou

JanF, Get those done, pronto! See Comment to MB about the barely visible roll-
As Long as mystery roll didn't have beetles! Camping must've been fun. I eat Flax-seed in my bread usually. Yummy stuff.
Glad to see you survived the trip.

Interstingly enough, in the photo you have the same hairstyle there as you do in your profile.

Neato.

Understand the thing about disposables though. I picked one up on Saturday to take pics of the Waterfall festival. Didn't get much of those, nor of the walk home.

Have it upstairs on my bureau just waiting for the leaves in the mountain to start/finish turning.

a lost treasure indeed! The suspense got me a long time ago. I dont' have any more laying around. I took them in years ago.
At 2:31 AMBlogger Snaggle Tooth said...
G, very observant of you! You always gotta have the cam with you n then notice something to shoot. You gotta remember to use all the exposures, few at a time- remember to take it for devel- then pick-up. Very labor n brain intensive...
Hope to see those leaves soon.

Cookie, I thought they'd all been done, but that one was lost in the shuffle of busy- Of course the money n time to get them done helps-
At 6:08 AMBlogger Milk Brain said...
i love that my cell phone has a decent camera so I can take a picture whenever something fancies me too.
At 9:55 PMBlogger Buddythedoxie said...
well its nice to have old pic "Pal" got some of me when I was a puppy & that's around 10 years ago...

How fun! I'm glad you scored a discount for your troubles! :)

I have a roll of film sitting in my jewelry box. It's been there for years. I'm somewhat afraid to have it developed.
At 2:41 AMBlogger Snaggle Tooth said...
MB, ya can't get the cool shots without the clicker- I'm pretty much going crazy not having it with me on Day Off, cause I'm so spoiled now-

Buddy, I still have puppy pics of RJ n Cinamin on here somewhere. You were a really cute puppy! I tend to like younger me pics too-

IamHJ, Welcome to ESR comments. ya, I was surprized- but it was a hassle, wanted errands over sooner to go get off the sore toes. Get that mystery roll de-mystified, you'll be glad you did!
At 3:34 PMBlogger Jannie Funster said...
Pronto,Tonto!

Thanks

hehe, love your analogy about a child shaking a present! :) Wonderful pics -- so much fun for you, I'm sure, to rediscover them!

ThommaLyn, Thanks. I guess some folks still do that as adults, but I learned not to break the goods- It was better than I'd expected.

Colors

Photo by SnaggleTooth Aug 16 2008
The colors reflecting off of Bcove opposite the sunset this evening were so nifty, I just had to run down the hill to snap it. Sights like this just make my day. Getting a pic or two that almost convey the feel of the actual scene isin't easy.
.
I'm feeling a bit better n probably eating too much to make up for all my recent starvation. I found it's difficult to perform my physical job duties without eating solid foods. Mushy food just doesn't stick to the gut very long, n I get faint when the fuel runs out. It was a very long work week without my regular food.
.
It's the State Sales Tax-free Week-end on purchases, so I went to get my paper goods n allergy pills. Then I bumped into an insanely cheap toaster oven I had to buy. Then I saw one dollar pizzas to cook in the little oven. What a score! Then when I got back home, the food couldn't all fit into the freezer, so I had to finish off the ice cream to make space.

Photo by SnaggleTooth Aug 16 2008..
Having finally mowed the foot-tall lawn earlier today, which had quickly swelled with our daily thunder showers, I was so hungry I don't even feel guilty about eating ice cream before pizza for dinner! Luckily, I don't own a scale to see how much I've swelled back to- (Probably all I'd lost with just that one meal)....
I did save a few bucks on taxes today... but the color show was free too.

those pictures are stunning!

glad to hear your feeling better, that's is always good news!
we got a new toaster oven too! ours has been broken but usable since about a month after we got it when Evan was a baby. The thing tha went was the ability to toast things at different darkness levels, you could still toast, but no longer for different periods of time. on or off. we got a slightly better model costing us $30. the one we had owned was the $15 model and int he stores the next model up was I think $50-60, and frankly, no one should spent that kind of money for a toaster oven. and when Bj's came out with this red one for the Go Red for Women campaign, I couldn't resist. We got a new coffee pot to match too, but mainly because ours has been falling apart for over a year now and just can't seem to find reason to spend $50 for a coffee maker.

Seeing your great pictures is like taking a mini- vacation! :)

Glad to hear you're feeling better.
 
At 4:54 AMBlogger Snaggle Tooth said...
MB, it was so pretty there that I couldn't fit enough of it into my pics! Guess you were out shopping when I tried to call- The t-oven I got is usually 30 but was on sale under 20 n a 4-slice size. I've been without one for years now.

Zoey, thankyou for appreciating my efforts. The folks right next door are on a real vacation- n I'm jealous because I'm working too hard this summer... I think it's their kayak-

I would say you captured the feel wonderfully. The colors practically jumped off of my screen - absolutely gorgeous!
 
At 4:58 AMBlogger Snaggle Tooth said...
Carmi, thanks for checking out my color post. I wonder what it feels like to swim in pink n purple water...?
 
At 10:22 PMBlogger Talon said...
Absolutely gorgeous pics...the glow on the water is stunning...the scene is just so peaceful and beautiful.

Talon, thanks, I knew you would appreciate the awe felt at finding such color at my fingertips.
