Goodbye Gianni

Grayson says "goodbye" before trotting down the steps into my back yard.
Maybe I'll see him again in another month?
He's definitely an outdoor cat and a hunter.
Can't wait to see him again.Click the image for a closeup.

Isolated Thunderstorms

Looks like if you wanted to water your plants you'd have to put them in the pickup and ride out there!
This breathtaking photo comes from "Anonymous" (NM Bill).

This is Grayson taking it easy on the back patio.
Temperatures continue to hover in the high 80's to mid 90's.

Tomato Shark

This lesser known species may look cute and friendly but a word to the wise, keep your fingers out of the salad!

Pretty Birdies II

I took many photos of this brightly colored Cardinal but this is the only one that came out.
He moved around pretty quick!
I was sitting under my patio umbrella and unbeknownst to him, he was going to land on the back of one of my chairs.
He got within 3-feet of me and as soon as he saw "human" he darted back out.
But the Birdman of Lakewoodtraz doesn't give up!

How To Get A Date

Make a first and lasting impression. Action speaks louder than words.
Just make sure that cord stays tight...

Time Capsule

While searching through my archives, I came across this photo of Gianni777s in his San Francisco apartment, circa 1976. It's Christmas time and the artist is in his studio. Leather jackets, bell bottom pants and Dirty Harry movies were in vogue. High collar shirts and neckties that looked like a cobra was biting your neck! Notice the rotary dial telephone. Slick.

Basil Face

It's been a while since I've been "seeing things".
Not sure if that's Pope Pius or Basil Rathbone.
What say you Watson?

Spelling Bee?

Do you see what I See?

Apparently, this AP reporter needs to go back to school!
Guacamole is pronounced, "Wok-amole". Right?
I once saw a Hispanic man selling watermelons out of the back of his truck.
His sign read, "Quartermelons. $1.29 each."

It's all phonetics...
