Ruby . . . yeap was only a half day this morning, compared to the rest of the week.

Messa . . . that's an awesome pic and story, I'll be honest I have never seen anything on sale from Buckingham Palace on ebay, I guess I'm just not looking in the right places, or know the right people!!

Those pics are great Weasel. When I was up there I remember I remember seeing Lobster Pound phrase a good bit around Camden / Rockport. I'm getting hungry thinking about it. Lots of gulf shrimp around here....good stuff too.

MM has me ready for a jaunt to Colorado too. Great scenery guys.

Slept in until noon, and NOT due to late night binge drinking. So nice! Although had some really weird dreams, I mean certifiably loony ones. No biggie, just random firing of neurons.

I am doing a 5:30 meeting today. Trying to figure out how I am going to squeeze that in with my busy schedule of doing absolutely nothing today.

You'd be surprised Weasel they faced off in the comics and i think thier lending from that

Of course you noticed Batman's gadgetry and believe me when i say it more than balances the scales

Superman looked mad at Batman the film is going to be epic

Hey all. Caught up with some friends in the town today. Really sunny weather. Everyone making plans of going out and going drinking later. I am never included in plans to go out. Invites gradually dissipated when my social drinking got really heavy and I consistently turned into a monster.

I guess I'm really feeling the social exclusion today. Before, excluded because of intoxication, now, well I don't know why now. I think others might find the company of a non drinker difficult.

Well, self pity rant over. Still really sunny out. Think I'll take a bike ride to my local park.

several green teas have put me in a better mood.

Ruby - vinyl on buses, yes these are open top tour buses and they carry a load of stick on vinyl ads.

There was a colourful parade of Sikhs near where I live, celebrating Vaisakhi. I was hoping for elephants but no such luck.

Thanks for the pics Mesa Man & Weasel

No lobster but I have something even better, top quality from France

Weasel, hilarious comic.

Jane, you are SO right about Batman. My 12-year-old can talk about this for hours (and he does).

Non, I hope you win your vine war. Wage it hard! I have two dead trees and a half acre that is not landscaped. Gotta start gardening, it helps with sobriety.

Knight, what the heck is snooker? I could google it, but I am afraid to. The last time I googled some strange sport from UK/Ireland, I came up with a bunch of videos of dogs dancing with their masters. As a sport. A legitimate sport.


off topic, but

Ruby, I saw you up late last night. Insomnia has hit me hard three days in a row. I am a walking zombie. Hope you get some sleep tonight.

Since we are sharing pet pics, here is a picture of my labrador. She is no longer a puppy, but still cute.
Puppy small.jpg

Weasel, super cool pics of the lighthouse. My mother's family is from Maine. It is some backwoods area called Machias. They were part of 4 or 5 families who have lived there for years, they have all interbred over the years. Very classy.

Just looked it up. Yep, I can see its value as a sedative.

Snook, snooker and snookest. And snooky. He was a snook, so no one could trust him. He was snooker (snookier?) than a fox in a hen house. He was the snookest thief in jail. He was so snooky, that you always had to keep your eye on him.

Or, he snook booze into the party by hiding it in his pants. He's snooked booze into many places before.
