Wednesday, Thursday

Drove to work on Monday and Tuesday, but biked yesterday and today.

Some people proudly display the flag, waving so proudly on this breezy day.

And some people fly the Don't Tread On Me flag. Nicely shredded, too.

Burrr, looks chilly!

I was sitting at an intersection, in the left-hand part of the lane, waiting to turn left. A big pickup truck pulled up behind me, then cozied up beside me. I just KNEW he was going to try to zoom out ahead and turn left, too. And sure enough, when an opening came, he went for it! But, he was not as quick as I, and he was forced by my turning arc to stay behind.

It is a wonder I make it home, isn't it!

I "planted" one of those flower seed mats. Please tell me which are the flowers, and which are the weeds?

The tailless cat (fat) joined me in the garden. He wonders what the heck I am doing.

I noticed that when I crop and resize photos they sometimes look really bad on my new flat screen monitor. The colors get all blotchy. I'm not sure what the deal is. How does the cat picture look to YOU? It's marginally blotchy to me, not as bad a some of them end up.

What you're seeing on the Cat photo is JPEG "Compression Artifacts". If you save at a higher quality / lower compression factor, they should look better.

Can't believe people still have their Christmas lights up! As for the flower seed mats & weekds, your guess is as good as mine. My rose bush has 4 new buds!
