    Hi Lee,
    How are you making those little parchment-like fields, where you're planting your wise words ??

    If you mean the burnt canvas background, it's something I created with GIMP. Basically I applied a canvas pattern to a layer, made the edges irregular, and underlaid darker colors, all with a bit of feathering.

    A nice distracting spin old friend, I love it Actually brown is a shade of decay, which is the foundation of new life, hopefully with more objective understanding. As with the waters we are poisoning for our progeny, we're also killing what's necessary in the "brown" soil for our species existence. Of course, in our headlong pursuit of material gain we don't stop to consider such trivialities as the world our grandchildren will have to get by in Another contradiction, relative to the true nature of our "caring" side.

    My apologies to France bobo, which was one of the first countries to find fault with the likes of Monsanto.

    Out this morning to do a bit more at putting up firewood, and thought Id show off a shirt the wife made me. A woman of many talents.

    Wanted to get in more of what needed doing, before the doc chides me again tomorrow not to be doing anything that hurts. My usual reply is, you mean like life?

    The wife takes a lot of pictures, but is camera shy herself. Years back when the state had me demonstrating wood carving at the Big E (New England states fair) a TV camera crew came around, and she vanished like a ghost.

    Found myself in the predicament of needing to turn around to get my canes, but not able to turn around without my canes. Don't suppose it matters much though, in a world where our dedicated politicians are rearranging deck chairs on the Titanic

    Brings to mind all the emphasis on good grammar, in a world where few say what needs to be said for the sake of the world our children will have to get by in, and few want to hear it.

    She's often in seniors golf tournaments these days, and likes seeing her name in the newspaper as a top finisher, but won't allow any pictures of herself. Not as if she's anything to hide. Way back when we first met I had a hard time focusing on her as a person, and to me she hasn't aged Well maybe ... her tongue has sharpened a smidgin

    Some guy told me to buy the 6th extinction so I did. It came a couple days ago. I feel lucky that the local amphibians are still around. Hope they stay.

    The new batch of frogs made it to my house, the 3/4 mile from the pond about two weeks ago. I'm going to say it took them about two months from polliwog- outward concentric circles in search of territory. Like ripples from a pond. No - they are ripples from a pond.

    They got to have moisture, too. My potted natives have attracted one, at least. Not the toads, though. The toads can go just about anywhere. They travel at night. Find a moist hidey-spot in the day. Probably that's what the frogs do, too - travel at night.
