That header is kind of wordy, but oh well. It’s kind of early. I’m gonna stop typing now and let the pictures do their thing.

Megatron VS Optimus Prime. Right? I looked it up on the internet. This one seemed fitting for today. I don’t know why. I’m not going to speculate or reflect. No time. I’m on call for work and I have been up pretty much all night with issues. Bound to the computer, I might as well make the most of my time and try to accomplish something with the occasional break for fun. This bench is deceiving because up close and in person it didn’t look all that great. But after I stepped back and took the pics, it really pops as an outstanding and  artistic design. One of my favorites. Ever. And I have a lot of bench pictures from the years gone by that I never did get around to fully posting. Maybe this is the year! I’ll try and do more throughout the day as I get tired of work work work. I consider this fun. Hopefully you do to! Later.

Oh! One more thing as FYI. Since I was up so early, and outside, I got to see the elusive giant Blue Jay swoop into the yard and try to attack all the other birds away from the feeder! Really exciting stuff for me since I feel neglected by the really big birds of prey lately. No pictures though. He was really blue and big and beautiful. But I’ve become a lazy birdwatcher. Literally. I just sit there and watch the birds. Maybe tomorrow I’ll catch the photo fever. Until then, happy Sat! Toodles.

Unbreakable…

May 24, 2009 at 11:53 am (Chevy Camaro, Day to Day, Dodge Nemesis) (, , , , , , , , , )

The new Dodge Challenger has but one arch enemy; one adversary; one nemesis in all the land…

The new Chevy Camaro.

A superhero rivalry forged in the 70’s; depicted with copycat body styles and similarly hued skin paint. Both left for dead, but brought back now to battle each other for American supremacy. If you favor one, you tend to dislike the other. I’m not really sure why that is, but it holds true for me.

I’m all about the Mopar, cool as hell, and popular with all the fast, Hemi-power people. Six pack and all that…without the flashy graphic help of a cool movie…ahem…

But, the new Camaro did receive quite a boost last year thanks to a certain yellow Bumblebee, in a Transforming motion picture flick…and that’s the only one I’ve ever seen. And I’ve never seen one on the street. And I’ve never seen it in red.

Until yesterday.

Saturday afternoon, on my way to my sissy’s…we stopped at the oasis for a coffee and there it was in the parking lot. I barely had time to get my camera out before it sensed the enemy and took off.

The picture is grainy and from a distance. I tried to get it, but it was too fast. I am not really fond of the Camaro but you have to keep an eye on your enemies… Vigilance is key; Complacency is death.

I’ll get her next time.
