Edited to add: This got published with the wrong header; it said ‘Third’ instead of ‘Fourth’. Sorry.
Ideally this post would have gone live at 11:59pm last night (local time), but then ideally I would still be in my thirties, have hair, be a lot handsomer than I was back then, and I would be stinking, filthy rich.
If I can cope with reality, hopefully my readers can as well.
So, October; well, early October saw us still traveling, and me still posting from the phone.
Planes and cars . . .
Interesting thing with the October Posts . . . the dates are all screwed up.
For instance, the October 2 post is listed as being posted on 20Oct2014. The October 4 post is listed as 40Oct2014, and October 5 posts all sport the date of 50Oct2014.
All of those posts were scheduled, and rather than entering, for instance, ’04’ for October 4, I just entered the ‘4’. It went in as the 40th of October. Anyway, it’s neither here or there.
The 5th saw me revisit the last of the albums from our 2004 Washington (the state) trip.
That would be Deception Falls and Roslyn. Fans of Northern Exposure will recognize Roslyn as serving as proxy for Cicely, Alaska.
Early October I started Sunday With My Thoughts. Something else I might get back to, as so much stuff is cluttering the news and people’s minds. My mind as well.
Of course, no one wants to revisit my ramblings, but people were happy to revisit a drive I took in June 2013. New readers may not be familiar with my propensity to “look back” . . . I call it that as opposed to saying I’m way, way, behind in posting my photos.
In mid-October I did a Fall post, complete with a short story intro. All of the photos were from my phone.
The thing is, we did have trees changing colors, as it’s not surprising after snow events and a couple of very hard freezes . . .
. . . but the crazy thing, we still had lots of flowers. I mean we had lost some, but . . .
There were still flowering wild flowers, like this thistle . . .
On another beautiful October day, shorts and t-shirt day, albeit windy, I went out to capture flowers still hanging on . . . and got lucky with some visitors.
The last hummingbird of the season (that I manage to capture) was from mid-September, and reported on in October.
Late October, also on a beautiful day, we went for a drive on some of the local backroads, and managed a few captures.
Favorites were difficult to choose . . . Falcon . . .
. . . or Red-tailed Hawk . . .
Difficult to pick as I am a fan of all my stuff. Ego, I gotz.
Late October found me continuing projects around the house, and the posts consisted mainly of test writings for the upcoming NaNoWriMo, looking at a few previously-written pieces, and catching what would be the last of the remaining flowers . . . in the snow.
I ended the month with Naked Aspens . . .
. . . and a B&W treatment of them and some grass.
November came . . . and NaNoWriMo started. The good news? I surpassed the required word count (50,000), but the bad news is the novel is still not finished. I do plan to get back to it within the next few days, and put it to bed.
Part of the problem was that I got hurt, that we were leaving in early December and there was a lot of stuff to take care of, and that the end of November had me scrambling with other stuff.
I did manage to post some photos in addition to all the writing . . .
. . . wait . . . you probably want to see the leg stuff . . .
Of course, I doctored a few of those up . . .
. . . the emphasize how it felt.
Anyway, random photos with some writing . . .
. . . and a look at photos from my many visits to the Air Force Academy.
. . . plus more random photos, most from visits to antique stores.
I even shared my Thanksgiving meal . . .
. . . and I ended November with the following statistic . . .
That brings us to December . . . Honest, if my readers can’t remember the last four weeks, I don’t think I’m doing a good job of presenting stuff, and reminding them is not going to help one bit . . . but, for new readers, here’s a sample of Disperser Tracks in December.
That’s it . . . a not-so-quick look back at 2012.
This post has ended . . . except for the stuff below.
