Nice leetle joke of the tree-cutting crew to carefully place the stump right-side-up in the street. I didn’t quite do a double-take, but I did study it for a half-beat…. No, no stump/tree in the pavement. Just on.
I cannot anthropomorphize this into a conscious decision to bud as November comes to a close (in the northern hemisphere). It’s just an off-season accomplishment. Nothing more; nothing less. Avert your eyes; keep moving.
As the complex system change-over to the incoming presidential administration speeds up, I was thinking about infrastructure. Here’s some that isn’t changing in January, I’m pretty sure!
We don’t much go in for parlor games around here, and the black-face penalty shown on “The Crown” has definitely not been in circulation here. FYI.
Headed off in a direction I haven’t been visiting lately and found this miniature scenario. I especially like the mushrooms and the flower on top of the birdhouse.
Camelot is gone. It is of course a myth, and the name represents exceptional times, in the best sense.
If we had some Camelot-like elements to our society enduring after JFK, they’re gone now. A high-ranking official at the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency says we had the “most secure” election in US history. And yet…yet…yet….
These chairs are not Dem/Rep color coded, I’m certain, because the yard had signs for four Dem candidates. Is the emptiness an invitation to the Pres- and VP-elect to have a seat? haha [Don’t think so.]
It’s well into November, folks, but it ain’t over.
Georgia voters: elect Ossoff and Warnock the first week of January in the run-offs, and turn the Senate Democratic to help Joe and Kamala enact legislation and policy For The American People.
This color is not a political statement; it’s just a pretty, pretty pink flower.
Found this sign today; new one on me.
I decided to be quietly civic to ameliorate my “razor-thin” stress. I thought I would find it calming to walk around the park and the lake. Pretty day.
I saw this plant and thought I’d try to work in something about a Banana Republic, but I couldn’t come up with anything clever…well, anything. Plus, the other day I read about plants that look (to my eye) just like a banana plant, but produce no bananas. So…look: foliage.
Just watched the clock flip to 7:00pm. Polls are closed…some places…and people are still in line to vote…some places…and will vote. Other states, other time zones, other rules.
And the counting staff are busy. And serious. Thankfully.
