Project 313 – Post No. 086

We are in July and — if we were still living in Monument, Colorado — I would be posting hummingbird photos. 

Lots and lots of hummingbird photos. You’d be reading a post like THIS.

Instead, you’re stuck with these boring Project 313 posts.

C’est la vie.

And now, the photo:

Project 313 086

This is the other half of the surgical tools case I showed yesterday. Tools from the Civil War. These photos were taken at Fort Jackson in Savannah, Georgia. That’s another trip I should endeavor to document. 

Meantime, I’m still processing airplane photos and photos from the Alaska cruise and spending a lot of time engaging in interactions in places other than my blog.

It does occur to me that 1) no one is asking me to and 2) it’s often to the benefit of no one when I take the time to express an opinion on this or another thing. 

I suppose I should buckle down and do what most people do . . . give a nod (or like) and move on to things that need doing. 

Like, getting back to writing, get serious about drawing, catch up with the literally thousands of photos I still have to process (I add 300+ each month) and concentrate on achieving . . . er . . . setting some goals for myself.

It could be I’m just getting lazy in my old age and this is the way things will be from here on out . . . me flopping on the pole of distraction blown about by the winds of apathy. 

Say, do you know that fireflies are pretty interesting insects? Of course you do . . . but, just in case, read THIS and THIS

It occurs to me that many people have lived their whole lives without seeing fireflies and especially not . . . Rainbow Lightning Bugs

Rainbow Lightning Bugs

And . . . that’s it

Some of these posts will likely be longer as the mood hits me, but most will be thus; short, uninteresting, bland, and relentless.

    Love the fireflies (Lightening bugs). We don’t have down in Melbourne but from Sydney north they appear. One thing I’ve missed.


  4. I love hummingbirds! :-)

    Well, I don’t know where else you are engaging in interactions…but, I like when you express your opinions here. They are helpful to me.

    PHOTO: OOH! A leech box! Cool!
    CARTOON: Oh, those gimmicks always mess a good-thing up! ;-) :-D
    DOODLE: Beautiful! I’ve only ever seen them in the Mid-West But I do like their shiny little butts!

    HUGS!!! :-)

      Yup . . . I miss the little dynamos.

      Mostly here. Recently, I had a few conversations on other blogs but they’re seldom worth it.

      Yeah . . . the leech were long gone.

      And yes, I miss the lightning bugs as well. It’s kind of neat to watch them fly around and they’re easy to catch. You just get near them and they have a tendency to land on you.

      Hope you had a great weekend.

  5. PS…Oh! I enjoyed reading the 12 things I didn’t know about lightning bugs…and I didn’t know most of those things!

  6. Whiskey was probably there most important medical item then?
    We still have a few fireflies – nothing like when I was a kid, but encouraging to see them. Fireflies were summer (but then on the farm where we spent a good part of the summers, it was dark – and we could see all the stars – only one light bulb on a cord in the kitchen. Dark skies are a luxury now.


    • disperser says:

      They did have chloroform and ether but when those ran out (or someone hid them) . . . whiskey it was.

      It’s sad to think how few people have really ever seen the stars on a dark night unspoiled by city lights.

    We have a small field next door that is the perfect gathering place of fireflies, so we’ve been very lucky to get quite a few shows in this summer. And speaking of, here’s yet ANOTHER reminder to watch some episodes . . .
