And you thought I was done with the bugs....
This guy had such a bright blue shell - he looked like a tiny Christmas ornament.

Now stay out of my pool. I'm tired of rescue missions.

Rain turns to Green

One of the things I missed the most when I lived in the mid west was watching the sidewalks and white concrete pillars slowly turn green as the rainy season of summer came to a head. It seems to be a southern phenomena.The strength of nature seeping over to camouflage what is man made.

I find it beautiful.

Back to Nature

In the yard.

Uninvited passengers.

uninvited tree dwellers.

Uninvited bug-eaters.
Uninvited but welcome.

Cold, windy and rainy.
Sun showers are warmer.

cell phone pictures

Went to the beach.
Forgot my camera. Figured I'd give the new camera-phone a whirl.

Under-shots of the pier.

(there's stingrays in the water)Couldn't decide between these two.

Some days

Cold wet weather and one fine roller derby match.
Some bugs came out.

Not in a plane. But in the pool. Why does everything jump in my pool?Baby Pine Wood Snake.

Roller Derby

Gonna tell you a story that you won't believe
But I fell in love last Friday evenin'
With a girl I saw on a barroom T.V. screen
Well I was just gettin' ready to get my hat
When she caught my eye and I put it back
And I ordered myself a couple o' more shots and beers

The night that
I fell in love with a Roller Derby Queen
Round and round, oh round and round
The meanest hunk o' woman that anybody ever seen
Down in the arena

She was five foot six and two fifteen
A bleached-blonde mama with a streak of mean
She knew how to knuckle and she knew how to scuffle and fight
And the roller derby program said
That she was built like a 'frigerator with a head
Her fans call her "Tuffy" but all her buddies called her "Spike"
Well I could not help it but to fall in love
With this heavy-duty woman I been speakin' of
