Project 313 – Post No. 288

Living in Colorado presented unique (in my limited experience) opportunity for interesting treatments of everyday things . . . like fog icing up on things (HERE). 

It may have looked neat but it had a byproduct that could be absolutely deadly . . . Black Ice. A thin coating of ice on the highways and road that was as slick as slabs of ice but didn’t look so when you were driving. We used to occasionally watch ambulances and wreckers laboriously making their way to vehicles whose drivers had been fooled by what looked like dry pavements.  

And now, the photo:

That photo goes back a long time. Specifically, to August 1, 2003. 

Simpler times . . . no, wait . . . that was Post 9/11, after the world had changed

Willy and working have always had a strange relationship. Most of the time, he’s shown unemployed and doing his best to not land a job . . . 

I got to admit . . . that’s very creative of Willy.

Eh . . . not a great title but I’m committed now to . . . Paint Drying — Citrus Edition.

Paint Drying — Citrus Edition

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.

    I knew you would come up with a great new subject for your framed photos . . . flowers & plants!!! Excellent choice . . . if I say so myself! AND you’ve got LOTS of creative fun ahead with choosing which processes to use. Lucky you!

    Where in the world is Waldo Disperser? Hope Melisa and you are feeling better. Illness caught on the cruise??? M 😳

      Somewhere in the Continental US . . .

      As for feeling better . . . not yet. For the record, I got sick before I left Hawaiʻi when I flew on a flight to Honolulu for a medical procedure. I came back with a sore throat that lasted until the first week of January but I don’t think the underlying culprit actually subsided until after we were on the cruise.

      Unfortunately, we made a grave mistake and went on an excursion . . . an excursion with lots of coughing individuals who took no precaution to shield their orifices when spewing germs from them.

      That evening, we both had chills and went to bed sick. From there, Melisa recovered, but whatever I had got into my chest.

      What I have now is the continuation of that . . . and Melisa might have contracted a variant of it although (hopefully) hers will once again pass quickly.

      Traveling is obviously not helping as is the dry cold air (not helping, that is). We generally don’t feel too bad in the car but, like now, in the evening we pay the price by feeling like warmed over holy crap on a cracker.


  3. PHOTO: OOH! What a beautiful artistic photo! Love those flowers and plant! Coleus plant! Right?!?!
    CARTOON: It was VERY creative…and funny! (I bet Willy could get out of jury duty, too!)
    DOODLE: Citrus-y for sure! I think there are people who are paid to watch paint dry professionally. I should google that!
    HUGS!!! :-)
