12 of 12

So I'm doing my 53rd 12 of 12

Normally it is 12 pictures taken on the 12
th of the month. Since I only post once per day, you get my images the following day. All pictures taken with my iPhone. Click images to enlarge, if you choose.

Created by Chad Darnell and picked up from, what I can tell, any number of random bloggers who then link back to him and vice versa. Chad is no longer doing this, nor is successor coordinating the linking of other 12 of 12'ers anymore. Now it's just ErikJim and myself - that I know of. 

I still continue to do this, because of all my consistent post topics, I actually like this one the most.


06:20.  a dynamite blast had woken me earlier (implosion of an old bridge)....and Sophie was ready for her morning feeding time. 

06:30. Making sure the barrels are still in place.

People actually remove them to drive past the sign. I put snow stakes up on the right, as you can see some of the tire marks of people who would just drive on the lawn to go around the barrels.  Our neighbors across the street followed my lead.

On my way to yoga, I actually caught a mother having her 7 and 8 year old girls moving the barrels to go through. Oh yes, I called them on it and made them leave.

Oh oh oh - her license plate?  'JC4U'.  I should have questioned her on what Jebus would have done. I also should have said I was videoing it, along with her license plate and sending it to the police.

am the cranky old man, you know.


06:40.  Seriously. A 20 page special section of paper devoted to the return of LeBron James.
I wished he'd never come back. 


09:30.  Morning dew on a spider's web between / over flowers. 


09:55.  Yoga "Rocks" the Park.

Five minutes before start and yet barely anyone was set-up to go. About 2/3 more folks actually plopped down before we got going.  The musicians were actually good.

I really haven't done yoga indoors for almost two months. Outdoor yoga is awesome. (and yes, Scott taught this class.)

11:15. Post-yoga snack ready for consumption. And sharing.

I gave some of my Rainier cherries to familiar yogis. All female btw.


11:40.  Aftermath of that aforementioned bridge implosion. Less than a mile from my yoga practice.

14:25. Dude, we don't have many rules in this house for you, but try to stay on the cover.
Ahhh - that's ok. He's cute. Cuteness lets you get away with a lot.

15:15. Helping 710 with some electrical work.
Let's be clear: this is all I'm qualified with which to assist - holding the tester to show if wire is live.

17:30.  Returning after Petey's 2nd walk. 
His Invisible Fence collar gets taken off, and we leave it behind and pick it up once we come back.

19:50. Paws & Claws time. 
See the white part of the nail (the lunula)? I don't like it at all. I trim my nails at the first sign of it. Yes - even that little amount. So off they came. 

22:00.  Full moon. Supermoon, in fact. Peeking through the trees and the clouds. 

22:15. Your Baker's Dozen. 
Dessert. A cookie or a small ice cream wasn't going to cut it today. So I got both. 


Until next month......at least for 12 of 12

the dew on the spider web looks like loose diamonds.

I WOULD film the idiots on your street and send it to the cops.

yeah, this lebron sounds like the second coming...dude, you left in a huff, and you expect people to welcome you back? bitch please!

and yes, cuteness forgives many a "sin".

Does Sophie turn her dish over in a not-so-subtle way to let you know it's empty, or is that something you do?

First off: Sophie. I can't with that face!
And the spider web; what a gorgeous picture.

I really like the picture of Sophie, she looks so sweet.

Two words...Spike Strip

Not too expensive. Effective. For your lawn (not the road)

Try this: Haagen Dazs chocolate with frozen Heath Bar bits (whack the package with the handle of a knife) and sliced almonds. YUM.

I always enjoy these. I liked the cat photo the best.

That's all Serge allows me to do too. All the tools are HIS. And Petey lays about just like Georgie.
