So I couldn’t ignore that side of me where my literal side meets my love of puns side, and since I couldn’t drive down to Missouri to see the hometown of Frames and Jesse James, or travel to Europe to see where the frame in Spain mainly falls, I risked arrest by a slow-moving security SUV to take this picture.
Lots of possible frames in here:
This picture was fun to create: a noirish shadow me framed in shadow:
A store in downtown Minneapolis. Frames within frames within a frame:
People sometimes ask me why I like Tom Waits and how I can listen to him and it’s like how can someone not like Tom Waits. There aren’t a lot of songwriters who can put so much emotion into so few words.
I always love your comments so if you’ve got one, feel free!
There are countless pictures of spider webs across the internet so there’s nothing particularly special about this picture, but it’s rare in the sense that while I’ve seen spider webs underneath this light before, I’ve never seen a spider web in this location, above the light, and I’ve never seen one this big – these bricks are about 3″ tall so you can do the math – or one constructed like a funnel. It’s like a big spider found a 5-Hour Energy drink sometime after sundown and went to town. I hope she got fed well for her effort.
This week’s WordPress Photo Challenge:
“share a photo of something fun!”
Disagree if you will, but is there any place more fun than the grocery store?
I know, “share a photo”, and this is three, but once the grocery store fun starts it’s difficult to shut it off.
EXERCISE FOR PEOPLE OVER 50:
Begin by holding a 5-lb potato bag in each hand. Extend your arms straight out from your sides and hold your arms in that extended, upright position as long as you can. You might feel your shoulders and wrists start to complain after a minute or so of holding your bags away from your body, but try and work through that initial pain if you can. WARNING: Listen to your body and don’t ever do more than you can, but the physical fitness gains will come faster the harder you work.
Repeat this exercise every day at about the same time.
The gains with this exercise are dramatic. Each day you’ll find that you can hold this position with your arms extended holding the 5-lb potato bags for just a bit longer period of time than you could the day before. It might not be a lot of time (Rome wasn’t built in a day, you know); it might just be a matter of a few seconds, but trust me, you will notice your strength and endurance increase with each day and you will be holding the 5-lb potato bags extended out from your body for a longer period of time each day.
After a couple of weeks, move up to 10-lb potato bags. Then, but only when you’re comfortable – remember: listen to your body – try 50-lb potato bags and then eventually try to get to where you can lift a 100-lb potato bag in each hand (I’m at this level).
After you feel confident at the 100-lb potato bag in each hand level then put a potato into each bag.
