365: Week 39

Day 268

September 24: Driving to Pack Meeting. Realized I still needed to take a picture. Stuck camera out of the sunroof and clicked the shutter. This is happening with some regularity these days...

Day 269

September 25: I TOOK A PICTURE TODAY!!!!! I SWEAR I DID!!!!!!

It was this weird little bug that landed on my front windshield as I was leaving work. I decided to see how long he would stay there -- he made it to 72mph.

The picture was on my camera this afternoon (three of them actually), and now they aren't there. I'm baffled and a little irate. (Is it possible to be a little irate?)

Day 270

September 26: In AYSO, the players take a knee whenever someone is injured on the field. To be honest, I don't really know why they do this (and neither do they), but it seemed like a good photo op.

Day 271

September 27: This is one of those 11:00 pm shots. I was practicing my magazine advertisement shots.

I'm not much of a cologne guy, but I don't mind wearing Obsession on occasion, which is a good thing because it's the only fragrance that's allowed in our house. My wife would bathe in the stuff, if we could afford it.

Day 272

September 28: Emma, my little Jack-O-Lantern.

Have you ever really thought about how creepy it is that all these little first graders are wandering around with their teeth falling out?

Day 273
September 29: I heard the sirens for a good five minutes before I decided to poke my head outside and see what was going on.

The newly constructed warehouse, down the block, was on fire.

Important safety tip: It turns out, a tar roof and a welding torch don't mix.

Day 274

September 30: The view from the front yard this afternoon.

I'm not ready for winter -- BELIEVE ME -- but the light dusting of snow from today's storm made for beautiful scenery.

so many great shots. of course the last one. WOW! love that.

not sure about the takin' a knee thing. must be to show respect to the injured player....I'm half tempted to google it....but I should be sewing...or editing pics. LOL

have a great day.

Snow?? Wow, that's early. Wonderful cloud shadow there on that shot.

Washing machines eat socks. Now cameras eat bugs. Bummer.

What's creepier than first graders' teeth falling out is that guys go around photographing them. ;o)

Have a great week. Don't forget your camera.

What happened after 72mph? Did he blow off or flatten against your windshield?
Practicing your magazine advertisement shots? Are you going to start modeling too? ;P
I love Obsession, but Abercrombie and Fitch Woods was my favorite (they don't carry it anymore). My husband however will only wear scented deodorant. I guess I should just be thankful for that.
I have totally had that thought before about teeth. And it should look creepy but for some reason kids make it look so cute! I love Emma's smile...they are so proud of that missing tooth look!
That's snow? Woah. I know I've commented on the views from your house before, but seriously, it's like you live in some kind of alternate National Geographic universe.

That last one is not your front yard. No dang way. I am so jealous!

And yes,u hjy9088888 (my cat left you those words back there) I do think that stuff about the first graders is way creepy!
