The Lone Cormorant

These photos were taken early today, I love the feathers of the Cormorant. Great color and so shiny! The water even looks inviting doesn’t it? It reminds me of the warm summer days of my youth in Michigan living on the lake. Memories always cherished. ❤️

Refilling The Pharmacy

As you can see in this photo I have to take too many drugs daily. I’m just 59 years young so this seems way wrong but then consider that isn’t it all about the genes we are born with? Heart issues run in my family which brought about diabetes and high blood pressure. I was diagnosed with Congestive Heart Failure in 2002 and am still alive and kicking ass! It could be worse. The bottles are turned around so that you can’t see any information on them. 😬

Dining Room Design

My little dining room has been in this space previously, but not via the new Nikon Z6 camera. The difference in image clarity and colour depth is obvious to me, I hope you like my totally bachelor design. Speaking of my bachelor life, it’s been four years now since the third and final divorce. In those four years, I have not had a date nor am I even interested in dating or meeting women. I consider that part of my life closed until further notice. There’s too much internal damage…

Another Form of Pain

Today has been painful because of the kidney stones on my right side, and an apparently strained or spasm-ing muscle in my middle back. So far, 2020 hasn’t been that great a year for me. I hope to have the Lithotripsy soon to pulverise those damn stones, hopefully get my life back on track here! Things could be worse though, your always in the middle. There’s always someone better or worse off than yourself. In the midst of trials, we need to be as positive as possible! Fingers crossed…

A Note On This Blog

Two or three weeks ago I was super frustrated with the storage space issue with WordPress.com. I’ve had to remove far too many posts in the past which I’ve realised I am at least partially responsible for this nonsense. For a brief time I hosted a few photos externally which worked OK until I received a comment about some form of ads rendering instead of my photos. Enough. I have begun shrinking my photos way down which is exactly what I didn’t want to do. Dammit.

For a good long while I was uploading images at about one megabyte. That right there should tell you pretty much how badly I screwed up! Not ashamed to admit it. I’ve become fairly proficient at shrinking my photos down to the point where they just begin to pixelate which has been right around 200kb’s. That’s a damn small file size but it does create a much faster page load time and is basically web-friendly everywhere including my email images to friends or family.

Bleeding Out

There are two needle pokes in this photo. One poke created the blood under the skin that traveled, this was for a blood draw. The other, located very near the bottom edge of the photo is where the IV needle was inserted. After being discharged, the nurse dude told me to keep pressure on the gauze that was over it for a few minutes.

Well, dummy me forgot that bit of information and bent over to pick up my bag of goodies I brought with me to the hospital in case I had to stay overnight or longer. Planning ahead. I was almost out the ER entrance when the nurse dude stopped me as I was dripping blood profusely from the IV insertion point. OM Gosh it was gross!

There was a trail of blood on the floor behind me and why the hell I didn’t notice this is beyond me. I got a new chunk of gauze to replace the totally blood soaked gauze. Nurse dude was sopping up my blood off the ER floor as I walked out. Being sick can be a bloody mess even if it’s not a surgery…

Yesterday Was Tough…

These days I find it extremely difficult to handle the negative thoughts from years gone by in terms of failed marriages and lost relationships. I’m not a fan of Valentines Day. Thanks for allowing me to say this.

A Kiddie Party in The Kingdom

OK, I’m attempting to be very enthusiastic with my titles lately! A bit ago I stepped outside for some sunshine and eighty one degree love. Surprisingly, I didn’t hear the party going on behind my home! Obviously this is a child party but boy are they whoopin’ it up man!

I’ve never met these folks, they are Hispanic (which is perfectly fine!) as I hear nothing but Spanish in their backyard, the music is really wonderful! I thought the little blowup house was cute so of course your’s truly had to go for the shot. We can never know what each day will bring…

Tattoo Photos

Yesterday when the weather was bright and sunny I stepped outside for some new photos of my tat since it’s not freshly re-inked now. looks great! I wanted to change the rose from blue (my favourite colour) to red, but the artist stated that doing so would really mess up the rose’s colour. Do you have a tattoo? Are you afraid to get one? Sure, it stings a bit so toughen up!
