Desert Skies And Dirty Windows
It was 105 yesterday at work. I am pretty sure what's left of my hair caught fire. As I drove home, I admired the beautiful desert sky in my air conditioned car through my dirty window which was cleaned yesterday. When I pulled up to the driveway, I sat for a few minutes, opened the garage door with the remote then built the courage to make a mad dash into the cool house. Almost made it. The cat tripped me. I'm sure I heard him snicker as I lay on the ground baking in the heat. Bad kitty, BAD.

Desert Skies And Dirty Windows

One of the neat things about moving (there are not really many) is all the old stuff you find that was forgotten. At the bottom of an old trunk, I found these, POGS. I stared at them for a moment and all I could remember was, they are POGS. I couldn't remember how to play or where they came from. I rolled a couple over in my hands, flipping them back and forth trying to jog my memory. They are from McDonalds and Universal Studios because they say so. They have movie names on them, Jaws, King Kong, E.T. and Earthquake and I have about a thousand more from all over. I placed them on the lid of a container for the shot and as I held the camera in my hand a memory came snapping into my brain. Way back when, my twenty something brain turned these into a drinking game. I was horrible at it and lost all the time. Might explain why I remember nothing else about them.

If It Hangs, It Must Swing
Please don't swing the tram during its descent. Those were the words I heard just before I got the Palm Springs Tram to do a Loop De Loop.
I told you not to swing the tram during its descent. Those were the words I heard just after the Palm Springs Tram crashed about a mile away onto the desert hillside.

The early morning sun wound it's way through the room. I stretched, yawned and slowly crawled my way to the door. As I emerged to the warmth of the outside desert air, my eyes blinked, adjusting to the brightness and there to my surprise stood a paparazzi worm with a camera. Smile he says to me and then I heard the familiar click click click of a camera.
So now the whole world knows exactly just what hole I crawled out of.

I Swear, It's For The Paper Challenge
At this point, you are probably saying, I think he's lost his mind (YOU in the back, stop saying I never had one in the first place!), that there is NO paper here what so ever. Ha! Wrong! It's called Paper Spine Cactus! Aptly named because it's a big scaredy cat, chicken, coward, downright wuss! It hides from everything, barely able to ... huh, that's not why it's called Paper Spine Cactus? No? It's called Paper Spine Cactus because the spines are like paper? WHY DOES NO ONE TELL ME THESE THINGS! You know, jus view the photo, I'm off to find my mind.
View on black. The best I can do is attempt to poke you with one of the paper like spines but if you could at least pretend and yell ouch, I would appreciate it.

I Ran Out Of Oil
After running out of oil yet again, I decided to go all natural. So I stripped off my clothes, ran outside to capture the sun when I realized Gary had it up in Canada. With no other choice, I hopped on my bicycle rode up to Canada, knocked his jar down to break it and free the sun, then rode back down here to Desert Hot Springs, recaptured the sun and now it's mine!
PS. Do you have any idea how cold it is in Canada when you are "All Natural" on a bicycle with a broken training wheel?

Who knew such an easy challenge as Black And White would be so difficult. I think I disliked every shot I took yesterday. Finally, I took this shot out the window of a moving car on the way home layered it with some peeling paint, high fived the cat and was done with it.

Always Take Advantage Of Your Situation
After singing On The Road Again for three hours, I was rudely judged and tossed out of the car window. Lying face down in the middle of the road, I decided to take this shot of Joshua Tree National Park.

Coming To Our Senses
First, your ears hear the sound
Then your nose smells the air
Followed by your eyes finding the source
Then your hand bitch slaps the offender for farting in an elevator
and that's when you taste the fear as you come to your senses and realize you just slapped a dude twice your size with no where to hide

And give me all your lunch money or I'll shoot you with my Potato Gun!
He didn't. I shot him. He made French Fries.
Mr. Potato Head needed therapy after this photo shoot. Apparently the other potato I was using for ammo was his Grandma. How was I to know.
