Some Pictures…

November 11, 2012 Leave a comment

Well I have not posted much as of late so I thought I would just post some photos that I have been able to take over the last few days.

Being that today is November 11th I will start with a photo I took this morning of my local cenotaph; Lest We Forget.

My family got looked at a little funny as we stopped what we were doing to observe the minute of silence at 11am. Rather sad how many people around us could not even show that level of respect for all those who served their country throughout history and those fighting currently. The kids didn’t fully understand it but they did very well for their age to keep still and quiet.

Now onto some general photos:

 

Enjoy the pics…

So enough for now…as some other sparkly has my attention…till next time…OH SO SHINY…

I’m sick it seems…

November 10, 2010 2 comments

Well I seem to have snagged an upper respiratory infection and I am back on the old 10 day antibiotics. Doc came back with the prescription and a note for work saying I need to be off until the 14th or so. Don’t think I am feeling bad enough to be off work but a few more days of no sleep with all the hacking up of a lung and I might re-think that note. Seems that bumping up my Vitamin D intake has done nothing for me for staving off illness. So this will be day 2 not at the gym this week as I get breathless walking up the stairs; so working out would possibly make me pass out. Stopped off and picked up some more NeoCitrin and codeine cough syrup so I’ll be playing mad scientist tonight mixing meds…mughahahaha! Also seems that because I am OLD during one of my coughing fits I pulled a muscle. I’m going to be in real trouble when I get really OLD! Might have to take me in the back field and put me out of my misery like a lame horse or something, but I don’t think my insurance would pay after something like that.

Cartoon…

It was suggested that I take up the pencil and begin a weekly or daily cartoon based on the adventures of the twins and being parents of twins. Might be something to look into but will see if time is permitting and talent, as that little drawing from the other day took far longer than it should have with multiple drafts. Thoughts?

Remembrance Day…

Just a reminder to take a moment and honour those whom have fought for our freedom both past and present. Eleventh Hour on the Eleventh Day of the Eleventh Month. But shouldn’t we keep them in our minds and hearts 365 days of the year and not just one day in November? They pay the ultimate price, respect has been earned.

So enough for now…as some other sparkly has my attention…till next time…OH SO SHINY…
