2 Things Challenge, Old/Fashion

With office dress codes migrating from suits and ties to golf shirts, and casual Friday now meaning blue jeans and tennis shoes, nothing says "Old" and "Fashion" to me like a pile of the old ties I used to have to wear to work every day. And nothing says it better than the one with the ladies dressed in their early 20th century dresses to go play tennis! That is Old Fashion as a part of a piece of old fashion.

I actually wore that thing to work in 1970's or early 1980's. That dates me, huh?

End of Summer

It's getting toward the end of summer around here, and these guys, or ladies more likely, are getting ready. What's this one?
C. D. Eyes?

It's a big fat spider I saw on the deck last evening. She had a very large web and was busily catching and storing away all kinds of bugs. This is the same photo, just not so close.

Another Week With More Rain and Sunshine

Remember the mushroom family from the other day? Well a few days in the sunshine can change things. Momma snowman got a little age on her, Jaba the Hut mushroom exploded and spread his spores everywhere, and the baby got buried in the mess.

But,. . . . there's a whole new crop of mushrooms. There are so many, it's almost like I need to go outside and mow them.
But a few days of moisture out here brings out other things too. While I was taking the two photos above, I was being eaten alive by hundreds of these little bat food creatures. We need more bats!

2 Things Challenge, Music/Note

This is my first attempt at this and I don't know if I can do it right, but here goes.

I don't know why this came out portrait instead of landscape, but you get the idea. The guitar is a fairly nice one I bought for and then from one of my sons, and I've never really learned how to play. The "note" is a twenty dollar Federal Reserve Note folded like none I've seen before. It's still in my wallet that way.

I'm Back

I missed a couple of days, but here's another post. These are the eyes of our recently acquired cat, named Skittles because he was soooo skittish when he first showed up at our house. He's still shy, but better. Feeding them helps.

On Labor Day we went for a hike out at Ruffner Mountain, a really neat place in the middle of the urban areas. Found one geocache while out there, but didn't take the camera out of the bag. I just used the camera bag for additional weight and exercise!
