Outside and Inside and “P” stories voting reminder

The Alphabet Challenge “P” Stories voting has — with apparent reluctance — started back up and we’re getting a trickle of readers wanting to make their preference known. 

If you are one such reader, thank you in advance for eventually reading our stories and for eventually casting a vote for your favorite of the three. Links to the stories and the poll for voting for “Alphabet Challenge P-Stories” are HERE.<<<Link

So, Outside . . .

That’s the color version of the Queen Mary in Long Beach, CA . . . but it seems to me this might be a more suitable version . . .

I pondered — as I was editing the photos from our visit to the engine room of the Queen Mary —  the difference between outward appearance and what you see inside.

I further pondered how similar that can be when we consider humans showing something on the outside while being something else on the inside.

I mean, it’s interesting but not nearly as elegant and sumptuous as what the passengers saw while crossing the Atlantic. I could try to “beautify” it and make it more artsy . . .

But it doesn’t change the fact it’s a bunch of piles, valves, old I-don’t-know-what, and other stuff screaming “cobbled together to make it go”.

Say, it strikes me that’s a bit like our stories!

Although this stuff is — perhaps — a bit more solid than our stories.

The new Gallery for the reminder photos is HERE<<<Link. The photos are only slightly larger (30-50%) but the details — and quality — are better there than here.

I always struggle with what I should post here. It’s usually a post for people who have already voted and have the time to go wander up and down the blog. I try to pick an interesting blog post that I’m at least marginally proud of. This time, it’s no different . . . HERE.<<link . . . that post deals with my sartorial preferences. Riveting stuff, if I say so myself . . . and I often have to.

. . . and HERE‘s<<link another sartorial tidbit. And THIS<<link gives accessorizing advice. Also, it might help with social distancing.

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