12 of 12

So I'm doing my 78th 12 of 12.

Normally it is 12 pictures taken on the 12th 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 Erik (and sometimes Jim) 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.

05:35.  Finishing dressing for work.

06:40.  Getting into the parking garage

 06:50.  Time to buy the doughnuts.

Had a morning meeting - I was in charge of 'food'.  No worries, I got bagels too.

09:15.  Working on 2017 budget.

10:20. Fire drill.  

Was trying to take a pic of the flashing alarm. This is the flash. 

12:15. Lunch. Such as it is.

12:40. Lunchtime walk. 

I took a 3000 step walk - or so - after eating. Watched a helicopter land. A dozen years or so ago, a helicopter fell off that 10 story building - killing all aboard. 

13:00.  Putting what is possibly the second most important mail I've ever sent, into the mailbox.
2016 Presidential Absentee ballot requests.

 14:50. New Office Reno.

Your last few was in April's 12 of 12. We should move in within 3-4 weeks.

17:30. Leaving the parking garage. Heading home. 

17:45.  Fire Truck. 

No idea why it was on our street, as I came home from work. But I got home to partial electricity. Garage doors would not work, lights very dim, DVR and wifi out completely. 

Oddly enough (?) we lost power on this day 5 years ago......and were robbed during it. I dead bolted all the doors even with me inside this time. 

19:30.  iPad Mini is out of juice. 

....and now your Baker's Dozen.....

20:45.  Dessert. 

Cutting back. No more ice cream or cookies. A wee helping of crispy M&Ms

I do remember that helicopter tragedy on the news. The immediacy of the memory will have come back to haunt many whenever another heli is seen up around that building.

Wait. Wait. Wait. I click on the 5 years ago link and am reading about someone named Denton?! Was this your previous husband before 710? I guess I need to do some backstory reading here... :)
