Harding Junior High School

I was just thinking of my old Alma Mater. This was taken just days before it was demolished.

And this one shows it mostly gone.
A new school was built on the opposite side of the block where Madison Elementary school used to be.

Angels In The Sky

This wispy cloud captured by Ms. V, NM Bill's lovely wife.
She sees an angel, Bill says he sees a horse.
Either way, a striking formation.

"Beam Me Up, Scottie!"

This unusual cloud formation was captured by NM Bill.
I love the reflection that looks like a tractor beam over the oncoming cars!

"Oh No Mr. Bill!"

What could have the tower of the train station in El Paso so worried?
Only Anonymous NM Bill knows for sure.

Although winter isn't officially here until December 21st, tomorrow is the 1st. of December. That means winter will be here in 21 days.

Sky Friday

After promising sunny skies for the past two weeks and all we got was rain,
the sun finally came out Wednesday with crystal blue skies overhead.
And it looks like more to come until Saturday - when it should snow.

"Coalition Of The Constipated"

A human sculpture by Andrew Baines

Andrew comments: "A couple of weekends back I created my most quirky and first guerrilla installation, by lining up 12 toilets along an Australian beach with suited volunteers sitting down reading papers, including Liberal Minister Amanda Vanstone, entitled "Coalition Of the Constipated" it highlighted the lack of toilets on the beach front for an eatery precinct. I suppose you would call this a grass root political issue. POWER TO THE POTTY PEOPLE!"

What a way to start a Monday!

Find The Bird's Nest Contest

Since nobody could find the Goodyear Blimp I thought I'd have an easy contest.
The prize in this instance is knowing you found the nest.

An additional bonus is if you lean back and squint,
you should see all kinds of animal heads ranging from 
a shark, a boar and a buffalo.
Good luck seeing things!

B. Kliban Cartoons

"And bring some shit for my fly..."
I saw this cartoon in the New Yorker Magazine back in the early 90's. It cracked me up!
Just thought about it today.
Ain't Google great?

Philosophical Feline

There must be an aura of zen in my yard.
Here Blackie sits atop the edge of the greenhouse and contemplates the universe.
(Either that or he's wondering how he can catch one of those birds in the feeder)
Either way, there seems to be a distinctive atmosphere that surrounds
the animals that enter my yard.

Remember Chippy?

Seeing Things?
I see a gnome looking over its shoulder as it tries to get away from a predator.
(Kind of a crew cut, big nose and frowning lips)
Now for a real test, can you spot the bird and the jet? You will have to click to enlarge the photo.

Scary Halloween Pumpkins

This is one of the extreme carved pumpkins by Villafane Studios.
Click the link to see more carvings.
Judging by the super storm Sandy, there may not be much Halloween on the east coast or the midwest.
