in transportation: (transPOORtation?)
as you may recall, while my car has been in the shop i have been driving the company truck. previously, i had a dainty carbon footprint, but the last two weeks…my carbon footprint has been mammoth. i’m not knocking it; i’m super thankful my boss let me use the truck. but today, on a work errand…. a huge garbage truck almost drove over the bed of the truck. i was trying to pull out into traffic….waiting for an opening….and the truck driver didn’t look. he backed up and backed up. i honked and honked. he stopped about 5 inches from completely crushing the back of the truck. my LAST day borrowing the truck and it was almost road kill.
now, on to more peaceful topics:
demonstrating peace: it is cody bear doing his paw to hand gesture. this paw motion followed some political news that hit my dog in his heart. cody bear’s political candidate was richardson and he had just heard richardson was dropping out of the race. he tried to convince me that i would have to vote for this guy because he had a gentle soul and a strong spirit. i still don’t know who i am voting for….but i have to say… as unsure as i am, if i had one vote to use AGAINST someone…that would be a no-brainer. i may propose the pres primary “negative vote” to congress in the next year or two. (not really)
this is the cat on cody bear’s bed. i had to show this picture because she has had some less than flattering photos on the blog and i haven’t represented her fairly. she is NOT scary. she is a gentle cat with some idiosyncrasies. but she is alot smaller and alot friendlier than she has been represented.
and finally, in photography:
the best tip i got this year in regards to improving my pictures: don’t use the flash on your point and shoot digicam. flash sux.
this is cody bear tonight, with nothing but the back patio light. you can see it in his eyes: he is imploring me to stop telling him to stay and to let him go hunt cats. poor old cody bear.
