Yellow-pink rose


Here’s a yellow and pink rose.  As opposed to yesterday’s pink and yellow rose.  Completely different things.  Great Art courtesy of the exclusive iPhone-cam, taken during the same rose garden visit as yesterday’s picture, also previously published on my Facebook feed, and part of my famous Garden series.

Actually, I think yesterday’s rose was more pink-orange, now that I look at it.  What do you think, Loyal Readers?

Welcome to post number eleven hundred!  That’s a lot of posts.  Some of them have been worth reading.  Well, maybe a dozen or so.  Three or four, anyway.  Okay, one.  I’m sure at least one was worth reading.  Maybe not.  I like ’em, at any rate.

Fine day today.  LRN4’s looking and feeling pretty good.  She reports her sore toenail is doing a bit better, while her feet are still somewhat numb and there’s a pretty substantial amount of swelling in her legs and feet.  Although nothing even close to what was happening in her early days in the hospital.  So there’s that.  She’s hoping for improvement in that area after she gets off the ‘roids.  I hope so too.

I finished my class today!  Mission accomplished.  Programming starts tomorrow morning.  I’m pretty excited to finally be making some progress.  We’ll see how I feel after a day of pounding away at it.  But I’ll get it done on schedule.  Working draft: one week from today.

I’m watching [amazon asin=B000FFJYA2&text=The Big Sleep] on TCM tonight.  LRN4 appears to be asleep right now.  Fortunately, not the Big Sleep.  But maybe I should turn out the lights.  Anyway, it’s a very good movie and pretty much the definitive film noir.  And Rotten Tomatoes likes it.  Plus, Bogey and Bacall.  What could be better than that?

LRN16 mentioned that I should get one of the helicopters with my Amazon gift certificate.  LRN4 correctly pointed out that I already have two of them.  And I love my helicopters!  I was specifically referring to quadcopters in my earlier post.  One of them would be fun, I think – they’re supposed to be very stable and easy to fly.  I’d want a good one, though, and I don’t think my budget brings me anywhere near a good one.  Maybe I should just get [amazon asin=B001HA9JOA&text=one of these] instead.  Believe it or not, that was grouped in the “gifts for men” category.  So was [amazon asin=B000SA07AU&text=this].  You know what I always say: one granny with a walker is geriatrics.  Two grannies with walkers are a sport!

And I’d better get to bed.  It’s late.  I’ll leave my Loyal Readers with this shocking food violence news: garlic scam!

See you on Monday.

    I still vote for the Screaming Monkey. Or just send it to Paul and Melissa and get the joy of giving. I KNOW they would love it!
