Slow Down, Dave!

Dave is usually assiduous when it comes to the new car he got for his birthday but his behavior today was so undignified, loudly bragging about the vehicle’s horsepower and how fast he drives to work. He must’ve forgotten about the icy roads when he drove off at such ridiculously high speeds and slid across the road. It looked bad from my point of view and I’ll confer with him tomorrow but hopefully the trauma of spinning out is enough to slow him down from now on.

Last on the Card – Feb. 2021

The rules are simple for Last on the Card hosted by Bushboys World:
1. Post the last photo on your SD card or last photo on your phone for the 31st January.
2. No editing – who cares if it is out of focus, not framed as you would like or the subject matter didn’t cooperate.
3. You don’t have to have any explanations, just the photo will do
4. Create a Pingback to this post or link in the comments
5. Tag “The Last Photo” or #LastOnTheCard

This is a screenshot saved on my iPhone 12.

Confused? Or maybe just wondering WHY? It’s simple and actually a frequent occurrence, since I often capture screenshots for unofficial “Smartphone 101” sessions with my family elders. One of my uncles is always texting me GIFs or an Emoji or something else he “discovered” on his iPhone 8, so for his birthday yesterday I decided to trip him out by sending this Memoji with my recorded birthday message. Hopefully the feature is available to him or my surprise will prove anticlimactic. Either way, he was excited to have received it.

Wine Stack

Biltmore Estate Winery

This picture was taken Memorial Weekend 2019 during a wine tasting event at the Biltmore Estates in Asheville, NC. We’d tasted a variety of their wines and, of course, ended up buying several bottles. Now I wish I’d have bought the entire stack you see here.

Photo Challenge #351 – Eiffel Tower

Photo by Flo Dahm on

Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie challenged us to use the above photo as inspiration to write a poem or short story. Alternatively we can take this opportunity to showcase our work.

Just couldn’t pass up the chance to share the same beautiful view, one from nearly the same perspective. Either my son or I took these pictures in November 2014.
