Am I the only one checking calenders ??

Christmas bird
I am somewhat bemused but what normally smart people fall for . I have gotten the message below from 3 different people. Now one of them does tend to fall for anything but I was surprised by the other 2

"Sorry everyone, I'm not superstitious, but this year October has 5 Fridays, 5 Saturdays and 5 Sundays. This happens once every 823 years. This is money bags. So copy this to your status and money will arrive within 4 days. Based on Chinese Feng Shui. The one ...who.... does not copy,......will be without money. I cannot let that person be me!! Copy within 11 min. Good Luck :) "

So umm yeah 
Really . check a calander .Any time Oct 1st falls on a friday we will have 5 each of fri Sat and Sun in the month. According to the calander the next time this will happen is 2021 Gee unless I am really bad on math that was a fast 823 years. Maybe something else in Oct happens only every 823 years but I am pretty sure this is not it.  BTW the last time there were 5 each in Oct was 1999. Gee the years do go by ;)

LJ shootout week 3

Christmas bird

Topic for the week is object and object in action. I love this bowl I found it at a clearence center last summer and having fun changing the "decor" the flowers will be changing out soon with some kind of autumn arrangement,I did this arrangement for the gate table at Golden rose tourney.

Both pictures were taken using a 35mm Macro lens with flash

The Object

in Action

LJ shootout

Christmas bird
So trying my first entry into LJ shootout.The prompt is to pick your favorite place to photograph from and then include a picture you took from the spot..This is part of a short wall and statue at the Netherlands cariliion near the Iwo Jima memorial and just outside Arlinton cemetary.

From here I can get pictures like this taken  Feb 28 (Hope it is OK I am 2 days over the 6 months deadlne)

My Uncle passed away this afternoon .It feels like a mixed blessings . I am sad he is gone but there is some relief that he only had to live a few weeks of being unable to care for himself. Kenneth was paralyzed as a child from polio he spent the rest of his life only to be able to walk with braces and crutches but he was one that never wanted  people to help unless absolutly necessary ..I am grateful that now he is with God and is once again sound of limb .I also feel torn. part of me feels I shoudl try and make the funeral  but I looked at airline fares though and the flights I could find were much more then last year when I went out for the other Uncles funeral.and after spending a significant amount on the car to make it ready for the trip up north .I feel selfish still wanting to go up for pennsic even though there is some part of ambivelent about that as well. I really need a vacation though that has been the only thing getting me through an awful work week .
Oy if only decisions could be simple

Is it spring yet ?

Christmas bird
Actually no I am not really fed up with winter yet but I am trying to get an early start on a spring cleaning of sorts.Otherwise known a trying to declutter my life.Progress is slow but I did start the day by taking 2 bags of clothes and another of paperbacks to the local thrift store.Then Mom and I went shopping, which leads to another reason I need to purge.
I have beenless then happy lately with the dinig room set up I have.It is not that I hate the furniture as much as it just does not work as well as I would like in the space .Also I decided it was time to upgrade form Ikea.So today I found a set I love at Bare Woods and ordered it.So now I need to find a home for the current table and bakers rack.Any one looking for anything or know of some one just starting out. The current table is a rectangle which has 2 drop leaves that folds out to a large oval.Since the drop leaves are each almost the same height as the table when is folds out it almost 3x its orginal size.
It will be 6-8 weeks before I get the new stuff so I have a little time to find a home but on the other hand now I have a little more motivation to pull down wall paper and paint maybe the sooner it is gone the better.
I am willing to give away to anyone who wants to come pick it up.otherwise I will probaly try craigs list or a local charity.
