The Storm Has Made Me Sleepy...

" Adam was but human - this explains it all. He did not want the apple for the apple's sake, he wanted it only because it was forbidden. The mistake was in not forbidding the serpent; then he would have eaten the serpent. "    -   Mark Twain

Only a Few Rain Drops So Far...

"The gem cannot be polished without friction, nor man perfected without trials."
  ~  Chinese proverb

= = = = = =

What is IT..? ..!



this is a true what is it.. someone sent
this item to me as a gift because
everyone knows I collect old plunder..
this seems to be a pully that moves
back and forth along a slot and from
the looks of the long bolts.. it was once
fastened to a wall.. Take a look.. get
your oldest relative to take a look
and send me some guesses.. give it a name..
and if I can prove what it is.. I might
have to hand out a prize..  do you know
what it is? I hope someone out there will know.. that someone might be you....

Two for Tuesday - Mammal / Insect



a mammal named Samson
who caught my eye at the flea market.. His owner was happy
for me to make his picture..
I do always ask..

and an Insect that seemed to be saying his prayers as Dave and I came across him on the stairs at the walking trail.. I think it might be a good omen if you find  an insect praying...

Thanks for stopping by my world today.. we were expecting rain.. but so far.. just one early morning drizzle..  I welcome visitors.. comments.. and followers.. I hope each of you have a grand day!

Fingerprint Friday-


















I followed this little fellow around the patio... watching him run from plant to plant changing colors several times.. he was so tiny.. only about an inch long from the top of his head head to tip of tail..  I wanted to catch him and build him a terrarium but  Dave was against the idea.. so he remains free..

I know I am supposed to post new photo's .. but discovering this old photo of myself I just couldn't resist.. I thought about the days between then and now... so many changes .. so many hardships and blessings..

I wouldn't want to do those years again.. But I wouldn't mind looking this young once more!
