Sum not All

Oh joy,  summer-like orders n a 6  day work-week!

I can't get to the library or go online to comment this week. I am limited to what I can to from my little tablet. I have to spend my one free day running many errands n getting laundry done. Then I have to go in very early n work very late, then go back for weekend orders!

Must make bucks when they let me, n can't afford to refuse, so I'll only get to read blogs this week if not too pooped after work.

I really miss those quiet quiet moments on the bridge near my old house, like when I shot this.

I'll be back on the other side of exhaustion...

Can you remember why we fight?

Have you had to stand up for it?

Defending our rights and the freedom of democracy it stands for?

Image by SnaggleTooth May 2017

 At work I this week had to stand up to a tall, young, immigrant, bully from another country, to explain that every one had a right to speak, had a right to their own opinion, n could state their opinion, whether or not others wished to hear it.

That we did not need her permission to speak. (She was not a supervisor). I was angry at how she'd just screamed at a co-worker who was part of a group of folks there at that time. All he did was make a comment in an attempt to be friendly to those around him, and to her, but she screamed at him to "shut up!" and then to me also as I defended our right to speak.

I then loudly explained to all, that when I see an injustice taking place, I had a duty to speak up! Welcome to democracy!

Then several folks in the next over work-zones answered with echoing shouts of
"God Bless America!"

It was enough to make you salute the flag...

You see, where I work there are many more immigrants (most non-English-speaking,) than citizens.  This particular person never stops talking loudly all night long. There is no way anyone can say anything without her feeling interrupted. Seriously, do you ask permission to speak outside of a meeting or courthouse?

Image by SnaggleTooth May 2017

Now each time she speaks I ask her if she has permission... just to be a wise guy.

I only stood up in a small way for freedom of speech.

Image by SnaggleTooth May 2017

I wonder what it would feel like to die for Democracy to survive...?

Happy Memorial Day Week-end,

and remember!

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.
Image by SnaggleTooth May 2017

A Smiley face

Windows open

So hot this place.

Image by SnaggleTooth May 2017

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

Brake Bees

Sue Stopped

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.

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:

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...?????"

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?"

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!"


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.

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."

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!"

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!"

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
