A squirrel story:

I used to live in a second floor apartment with a balcony in Maryland. There
was grass in front of the building, then a parking lot, then more grass. The
squirrels got so used to me feeding them that they'd come when I called. I
used to love freaking people out. I'd see a squirrel across the parking lot
looking through the grass and I'd yell from my balcony, "Yo squirrel!" He'd
look up at me. I'd yell, "You want some peanuts?" and he'd come running
across the parking lot and stand under the balcony as I threw peanuts to him
(or her - who knew?).

When I lived in Pacific Grove, California, I found the squirrels along the
beach to be very friendly. They'd climb up on you to get peanuts. I loved it!

A California squirrel climbs up on my knee. I'm sitting cross-legged.

Stranger Things on Netflix.

Not happy with Wynona Ryder's performance.

Not happy with the ending. There was no ending. WTF?!

I haven't watched it yet, but isn't there suppose to be a season 2?


I certainly hope so. Not that it's that good. It's just that they
left things completely unresolved.

How about an OOPS!



This is why you put the load weight over the axles and not in
the center of the trailer.

Watched Eye In The Sky.

I like it but, in reality I see CPT Watts being punished for not firing
when he was supposed to fire (the first time). Military superiors are
always covering their own asses and would be worried that allowing CPT
Watts to, in effect, question the order would ruin their careers.

This cafe is located at the university. I don't know if the name's just a coincidence or if it is named after the famous austrian physicist Erwin Schrödinger.


Do we dare ask what they serve there?

Here's a picture I took from the Tower Bridge in London at sunset.


Very nice, Suzie.


Thank you.

Has anyone ever entered a photo in a contest? Kentucky's state fair has a photo competition.


Only silly little contests online like "who has the cutest cat" or
something like that. Never anything bigger, that I recall.

By the way, I did use Photoshop to remove a crane (building type, not
a bird) from the photo right about where the sun is.

It seems we have some extremely sensitive people posting here. Or we did.

My post about some pix possibly not being originals, in spite of a posted
apology in the case that I was wrong, hit some nerves. (The apology would
be the part where I said, "Forgive me if I am assuming some of the pix I see
today aren't originals but they actually are.")

Let's all be adults, okay. Let's not look for an opportunity to be offended
and then run off whining.

Sorry that I have to post this here, but I've been blocked by the person to
whom I'd like to explain and, again, apologize. He took his ball and went home.
Shame.

I'll stop here before I say something that really is offensive. Sheesh.

I want to remind everyone that this thread is for

original photos, only.

In other words, photos that you took yourself.

Forgive me if I am assuming some of the pix I see today aren't
originals but they actually are. But if I'm correct, please
remove the pix immediately.

Please be honest.

Thank you.


Can you define original a little more? With the advent of Photoshop it is possible to take a picture and process it well beyond reality. That would still be an original picture. Conversely there are pictures that I have taken where I controlled the lighting, exposure, or number of exposures, depth of field, etc to get a look that goes beyond reality. That would still be an original picture. I will try to post a few extremes.


"Photoshopped" - or similarly edited - original photos are fine.

Also, memes you've created with your own photos are allowed, as well.

For example, I made this after noticing the expression on one of my
cats when I took his picture.

This tune popped into my head for some reason this morning.

I wonder if I was abducted last night.

Hmmmm.

Why would you have a raccoon in your sig if you're a Roadrunner?



Quick Vic, answer yes!


I haven't been drinking, but that makes no sense, either.

Am I missing something?

No raccoon in My sig, I love house cats...


Why would you have a raccoon in your sig if you're a Roadrunner?

Cause there isn't enough room for more than a roadrunner, stats and a few other bits.


Am I the only one who thinks that answer doesn't make sense?

& possibly for extra safety, how about a DVD or Blu-ray disk?

Well I did at first consider DVD but it would require nearly 30 DVD's to store the 220GB the "My pictures" folder currently is ( there are also a few videos in there), and around 5 Blue Ray discs. I don't have and do not want a blue ray recorder.

So currently they are stored on my main machine, my server and a removable HDD. I will have to hope that is enough.


One can purchase a 1Tb drive very cheaply these days.
