April's Arizona Theme Day

The 15th of every month is Arizona Theme Day, and this month's theme is "Doors". So this is my contribution. I guess technically it's not a door, per se, but rather where a door used to be, but I think it will work. It was taken in an alley in historic downtown Flagstaff. I upped the contrast on this one to get the texture from the rock. I hope you all like it and happy theme day.

Check out the photography of the other Arizona photobloggers who take part in theme day:

Just When You Think......

Just when you think that Winter is over and Summer is quickly approaching, you get 2 inches of the white stuff. D'oh!! This was the view out of master bedroom on the morning of April 3rd.

The temperatures had been pretty consistently warm for the last few weeks and then BAM! Mother Nature gets in one last uppercut. Gee, thanks.

Oh well, it had all melted by the end of the day.

Lag Time

I'm sorry for the recent lack of posts here. I've been pretty busy with outside projects, homebrewing beer and having a nasty head cold (right now). But just to make everyone feel that their life isn't really that bad, here is a photo of what I woke up to this morning:

a whole roll of paper towels

the jade plant is no more.

It took our puppy, Curry, no more than 45 minutes to do that, from the time my wife left for work to the time I got up. Very efficient animal...I just wish she would be efficient at NOT destroying my house for a change.
