After heavy rains, I couldn’t mow or have weed eating finished. Had my guys repair fences and remove a huge spread of blackberry bushes around the property. They chipped away at a couple of old stumps I’m always running into. I like things to be ship-shape when I leave, but the maintenance here is heavy.
I caught up on the inevitable paperwork inside, while they worked outside. Time to play picture roulette and see what comes up in my files.
A big hole in the ground.
My daughter and grandson in a haze of smoke around the campfire.
Not sure why I took a picture of this barn in Monroe, Washington. Maybe because the silo looked like a space ship. I do like old barns, but, I think I’ll toss this one out of my files.
Sexy shoe? Now, that’s more like it.
I grabbed this from a story about this famous painting having been recovered after many years of being “disappeared.”
The gate to an animal sanctuary. Just read a horrible story of the abuse elephants suffer. This, after an elephant shocked by an electric fence turned on her new rescuer and killed her. If it were up to me, no animals would be allowed to be used in side shows and circuses for profit. It all too often ends up in horrible misery for the animals. In fact, this recent episode about the abused elephant was that she was being cared for and calmed before being sent to this very sanctuary here in Calaveras County.
A Matt Bors cartoon. Whoops, hadn’t thought of anything political for a whole day. Well, it is pretty funny.
Another shoe picture. Well, with that, I’d best hot foot it into the kitchen and get my house spruced up before I leave.

You may NOT wear any revealing or “skimpy” clothes. If deemed too revealing, we will ask that you put your pants back on. This includes thongs, jock straps, a**-less chaps, whitey-tighties that can be seen through etc. Please use common sense. You are responsible for obeying the law.
Those are the stated rules. This is Seattle’s big, bizarre fun day-IT IS JANUARY 8th. PANTS LESS SUNDAY.
The “No Pants” event stunt started on New York’s subways about a decade ago, and it has gained popularity in other places. Pictured are people from Seattle’s event. Word of mouth usually spreads through e-mail lists and Facebook — kind of like the Occupy Wall Street movement.
A week ago, Seattle Post Intelligencer learned that about 90 locals had RSVPed to the ride, with about 60 on-the-fence “maybes.”
“I am shaving and shivering for this event,” one fan wrote. “I am so shopping too for some lovely panties.”
The SPI pictures are from Joshua Trujillo’s blog which shows guys in pink-flowered shorts and others wearing tights. Crazy socks. Women with net stockings. Fun. The photos are from the 2011 event.
