08/25/09 - I'm going to spare you guys the picture of the rat snake I took yesterday and instead show you this pretty-colored glass abstract that I took:-) New beads. New glass. To me, this looks like one of those dolls where the head and skirt are very similar in shape, she has a teeny tiny body, and her arms are straight out at her side. But, that's just me. Please do imagine something different. Whatever works for you:-)
Now, if you're thinking you really need to see the snake picture, he's here:
Cornfu's rat snake shot from a few days ago has better composition. I went out once, got blurry pics, ran back into the house for the tripod, and by then he'd moved into a less favorable pose. And, I wasn't getting closer than 8'.
I was up hourly listening for the darn pager. It's been years since I was on call. Thanks for your well wishes for Joey and for my on-call week. Can this week please be over and SOON. I hate to waste my life away, but...
