Yard art

Today was my day to be on call at the paper. On my sheet when I arrived was a Freedom Foundation gathering. Politicians O'Plenty were there. I shot a lot of pictures.

The Lt. Gov. finished his talk just before lunch. I walked out with him as if I were part of his staff. Then I ditched him and his security detail and headed for the truck. I had grub on my mind.

There's a place downtown that serves good food. A hot steak and cheese sandwich spoke to me from the menu. It was all I could do to keep from ordering a beer the size of Rhode Island. The sandwich was good and the waitress was sweet. (Can I say that and not be accused of being a misogynist?) Maybe I should say she was kind.

Back at the office, I sent the pictures to the editor with cutlines and then started transcribing interviews I'd done on Thursday.

When 4 p.m. rolled around, I didn't let the door hit me on the butt.

I took a ton of pictures today but no blog photos. Looking back through my archives, I found one I shot earlier in the week. I call it yard art.


  1. I like your yard art. We should always be n the lookout for more.

  2. I would MUCH rather see yard art than politicians.

  3. I don't know why, but I'm pretty sure calling a waitress sweet these days is offensive, kind might be as well...I'd be careful.

  4. I'd be afraid of my yard might have some Arnie offerings! I love the pic of Jordan in your previous post. He sounds like such a sweet kiddo and I hope he's feeling much better.

  5. Ahh, live dangerously and get your picture in the paper. Oh that's right you are the paper. Go ahead print your picture and confess to calling the lady sweet, just in case you run for office.
    the yard art is a better shot when compared to many of my accidental clicks with the camera nose pointed down.!

    I get the feeling you still like the job........ Good.

  6. Calling someone sweet. All I can say is your Damned if you do, Damned if you don’t.
    I offended someone once by calling them cute!

  7. I would go with kind rather than sweet to be on the safe side.
    Your yard art looks better than my white blank canvas.
    Hugs, Julia

  8. Fikir sahibi oldum.

  9. Politicians or a pint? Which one would I choose?

  10. love your yard art and I am now waiting for the door to smack me in the butt

  11. Your yard art is so nice.
    I don't anything wrong with saying someone is sweet
