I'm back on-line, and, unsurprisingly, last week was not what I planned. C'est la vie, and on to new business!

Big thanks to my regular readers/viewers, who kept the 'blog rolling while I was away. I peeked in often enough to know that you each made your presence felt -- supportive comments from Karen, Lynette, Tammi and John; well-deserved chastisement from the good Dr. John; snarky enticement to abandon my hiatus from the most Twisted of Chilis; and, rambunctious and illicit partying by Snoo and Jafabrit, with TC providing the, obviously ignored, voice of reason. Rowdy Brits!

Food fights?

Alcohol?

Ugh! I just stepped in . . . CHOCOLATE CAKE???? What a shameful waste of perfectly good chocolate cake!

Well, I guess I don't mind. Someone did a very nice after-party cleanup job! It's a sort of compliment to know my "virtual peeps" can enjoy my space, even if I'm not actually occupying such space!

Thanks, guys!

Today's Pics -

A couple of you may remember an old posting which chronicled my (mis)adventures in an unsuspecting oral surgeon's office.

Read about it, here.

The original photo, above, was taken that day. I took quite a few photos, and the distinctive form of that examination lamp will keep me knee-deep in manipulations for years to come!

You've gotta love that kind of post-op complication!

  3. *picks popcorn out of hair and eats it*

    WJ!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (Hugs)
    How did yer break go? Missed ya!

    Frykey - It's my new invented word especially created for splash! It's like freaky, crikey, and fright, all in one.
    Cosmic Dream looks like something I've imagined, or played with in a dream, but I'm not sure what.

    Awesome job on both of these pieces.

    Welcome back!!! Hurrah!

  4. Thanks, Jafabrit! I seem to be on an extra-terrestrial kick, recently. I think it's my pesky, non-human strand of DNA rearing it's unexpected head!

    "This week, on Star Trek: The Attack of the Dreadlocked Aliens!"

    And you know, there's no such thing as "too much chocolate"!

  6. Hi, Karen!

    I take my camera everywhere. Inspiration could be lurking around every corner! I carry a little set of binoculars, too. And a tape measure, and scissors, and a teeny flashlight, and . . .

  7. Thanks, Snoo! I'll hug ya back, but not too close, 'cause, frykey! you've got food stuck in your hair!

    Didn't mean to scare you, but glad you like the pics! My break didn't go as planned, but, hey, what does?

    Feel free to throw a party here, anytime! I don't drink, but I L-O-V-E chocolate cake!

  11. You didn't throw the chocolate out just because you stepped in it?

    I love the pic and I really like Cosmic Dream. Reminds me of when I had my wisdom teeth removed.

  13. Thanks, 3collie! You know I'm always interested in what you see on the farm!

  14. Thanks, Dr. John! Yes, a doctor's office without a camera, is just . . . a doctor's office. No fun in that!

    Nope, the grass is not cut, but my lilies are in bloom, so it all evens out!

  15. Thanks, Tammi, though I didn't really mean to remind you of wisdom tooth extraction. Sorry about that! And, yes, I'm afraid the stepped-in chocolate is -- toast . . .

  17. Having nightmares from last night's Dr Who, all very Cybermenish. "You will be upgraded to Human 2.0 or be deleted"

    Your manipulated dentists light looks like something out of CybusCorp. All very skiffy, wonderful.
