Doobster of Mindful Digressions named me in a photography challenge.
And since I am really a rotten photographer (but I do Google Images with finesse), I figured, what the hell.
Here are the rules:
The rules are pretty simple:
- Post a black & white photo daily for five posts in a row.
- Invite someone different to participate each day.
Ummm, except for photos of my black and white dog, which I take in color but still end up being black and white due to the subject matter, I don’t really do black and white. I don’t do much in color, either.
But here goes.
My old headder in color
And now, if I can figure out how to do it …
Does this count?
OK. I’ll do it right. I think ..
I did it! With Doobster’s help.
I’m going with the color one(s), I don’t know about you!
These are pictures of the place in Maine where my family goes in the summer — and occasionally in the winter.
I’m not going to challenge anyone to do this — feel free to do it and link to Doobster. But it is kind of neat to see my photo in black and white.
It’s been years since I did a big, bang up New Year’s Eve. In fact, not since the time that John, Jacob and I not only broke a Guinness Book of World Records but did not die a fiery death have I done anything terribly exciting for New Years. Times Square in diapers holds no attraction for me.
But still, it is a time to celebrate. And so I will let you in on a wonderful, yet dirt-cheap way to ring out the old and ring in the new. Or is that “Bring”?
Damn, I haven’t even opened the champagne yet.
OK, here’s what you do:
On the stroke of midnight,
Open the back door –
to force out all the BAD luck.
Open the front door —
to let in the GOOD luck.
The rest is optional, but we always:
- Drink a toast to the New Year.
- Kiss anyone and everyone who happens to be nearby
- Hope for all the best for all we care about in the New Year.
This year I will of course add to family and flesh friends a wish the happiest, healthiest of new years to all my blogging buddies.
Happy New Year – may your good luck always be stronger than your bad.
Yup, this is a re-tread. I will probably post it next year, too.
