8-6-14 69th Anniversary

The sheep’s in the meadow
The cow’s in the corn
Now is the time for a child to be born
You’ll laugh at the moon and you’ll cry for the sun
And if it’s a boy he’ll carry a gun
Sang the crow on the cradle

And if it should be that this baby’s a girl
Never you mind if her hair doesn’t curl
With rings on her fingers and bells on her toes
A shadow above her wherever she goes
Sang the crow on the cradle

The crow on the cradle
The black on the white
Somebody’s baby is born for a fight
The crow on the cradle
The white on the black
Somebody’s baby is not coming back
Sang the crow on the cradle

Bring me my gun and I’ll shoot
That bird dead
That’s what your mother and
Father once said
A crow on the cradle what can we do
This is the thing I must leave up to you
Sang the crow on the cradle

06-13-14 Weekly Photo Challenge: Extra Extra

Today was an Extra day all around. Friday the 13th AND a full moon?  What’s up with that? Anyway the moon put me in mind of this Cape Cod extra. The shot was lined up and ready to go and suddenly the fog thinned slightly…

Bonfire (17 of 81)

3-22-14 Weekly Photo Challenge

“How strange is the lot of us mortals! Each of us is here for a brief sojourn; for what purpose he knows not, though he senses it. But without deeper reflection one knows from daily life that one exists for other people.”

Albert Einstein

Cape Light-1

“It is only after time has been given for a cool and deliberate reflection that the real voice of the people can be know,”

George Washington

The Accidental Cootchie Mama will pass 300 miles on her walk on Monday, which happens to be her birthday. http://andrawatkins.com/2014/03/22/the-demon-on-their-shoulder/    I wonder about her reflections

1-18-14 Weekly Photo Challenge: Family

Family. I was going to make a Duck Dynasty joke here but, never mind. This “before they were famous gif” sums up my feelings. (found on Perez Hilton after seeing on Real Time with Bill Maher last night).Duck Dynasty

Anyway, my favorite road sign in the entire world (RT 6, Cape Cod) sums it up, I think. (Yes I did a little work in Lightroom.)
