Just To Show You...

that I, too, can take a picture of a flower. First, a volunteer sunflower right next to the house. I am guessing a chickadee probably let the seed(s) fall from its mouth while flitting away from the window.

Next we have some sort of Xmas cactus, Mrs. SideKick, a.k.a., Mrs. Shutterwi, told me the name, but, what with my maximum dosage of Lipitor, I forgot it. Hopefully, her computer will be upgraded & she'll be able to make a comment on this post. Her old, old, old, old, old, old, old, OLD computer won't allow her to make the comment for some reason. I think the reason is the SideKick, a.k.a. Shutterwi, IT guy for a local school just doesn't want to bring his work home. Go figure. Anyway, here are some pics of the cactus.

& finally, just to show my loyal four readers that I actually do things other than photograph flowers & sit huddled in the living room reading political blogs & online newspapers while cursing Bu$hCo & the ReThugs, here's a pic of something the SideKick, a.k.a. Shuttewi, & I did this a.m. I'm enlarging the deck off the house & needed help in squaring it up. We got it done with only the SideKick uttering a really bad word. But that was probably my fault since I didn't have a cat's paw. Nothing pisses him off more than my not having the appropriate tool for the job. He, of course, has several different cat's paws at his home. Figures.

I don't see any living wages being paid out for this job. Why?
