Yes, the energy crisis would be over if we could discover what powers the average two-year old.
And for a quick boost, give them sugar.

There is acceptable, good, great, and outstanding. My cream of chicken soup is outstanding .......Mrs Rupert describes it as heavenly and hopes they serve it in heaven. That, from one of the pickiest eaters on earth.

Why she keeps me around!


I see you are trying to keep it relevant to the discussion by including some bacon.

Nice job Jim.

Nice job.

Did I ever mention that I shoot squirrels often?

Well, now that you mention it . . . . . . .

Here are a couple from today of a very brave critter out on a skinny limb.

Otis....he's fearless!


Very nice Jim. I like it.

What do you call a battalion armed with incandescent bulbs, a battalion armed with fluorescent bulbs and a battalion armed with LED bulbs?

Hey.


I've been working nearly as many hours in overtime every week as I work straight time all summer.


I can't be here all the time you know.

I remember that feeling. One summer I banked more cash than I usually made in an entire summer. It was a busy year and though profitable, all I really wanted was a little time off and some rest. We do what we have to do when we have to do it.

Look at it this way Racer.....when you get as old and worn out as I am, you can look back and wish you were still able to work all those long hours. Rocking chairs are not all that bad though......

Regards!

Off to my Mom's 90th Surprise Birthday Party! Should be a good one!
I gave my niece, a real "go-getter" type, all of my studio equipment, strobes, umbrellas, wireless, backgrounds etc. several months ago to make all the arrangements and handle the catering, guest list and decorations. She has great expertise at such things......any cash needed also supplied to her.
...then menu includes BBQ bacon! Can't wait!

I'll take a Toy Camera and my K1....may get a few decent shots...probably those from Mrs Rupert and her X10?

You guys take care here today.....dead as it is, you will all probably sleep through the day?

Regards!

And I went some place called Australia and did not have my normal data services.
