Project 313 – Post No. 264

Today I LINK a post with photos of Pulpit Rock (Colorado Springs). The post is an introduction to one of the chapters for my 2015 NaNoWriMo effort which resulted in a book I titled Gin’s War. 

I was supposed to fix a few things, re-write it, and send it off so that it can be rejected by all the agents who even deign it a look-see. As it is, I’m falling behind my editing efforts because . . . because of stuff I’ll not yet share.

And now, the photo:

Project 313 264

This actually looks better than the teapot looked. At one time, it must have been a very nice-looking teapot but this one had seen better days. Still, I think it makes for a nice addition to Project 313.

Maybe it has nothing to do with it, but one of the reasons I like Martin is that his view on guns is (or appears to be) at least superficially similar to mine. This joke is not exactly indicative of it, but there were others. This, I just found funny. 

. . . this is an old cartoon scanned from a clipping I saved — if I’m reading the date correctly — in 1982. This I scanned a few years ago. That means I lugged this (and other) clippings for 34 years. So, yes . . . I like the cartoon.

I just recently found out  . . . The Phoenix Swan Lives. 

The Phoenix Swan Lives

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.

That’s it. This post has ended . . . except for the stuff below.

    I like that ‘oriental’ look of the teapot . . . that dark purple and gold give it a royal effect. And, yes, the cartoon is quite funny.


  2. OOH! I remember your book Gin’s War! I REALLY enjoyed reading it! It deserves to be sent off AND be published! All my crossable parts crossed!
    PHOTO: This teapot reminds me of a clear, dark blue, bright stars starry night sky! Beautiful photo!
    CARTOON: HA! My hubby would love this! Gotta’ show it to him!
    DOODLE: OH! I’m so glad The Phoenix Swan lives and is fiery and glowy!
    HUGS!!! :-)

    Thank you, Carolyn. Still thinking I will send it off . . . as soon as other stuff stops happening.

    Thanks. Dark blue teapots are actually difficult to photograph (any dark teapot because of the reflections), but the processing came out pretty good.

    It is a funny cartoon.
