So there's that. I'll got into somewhat more detail about it later. Meanwhile, I am terribly behind in posting pics. So here are some of those of things around the town where I live.
This is Timothy:
There was another lady who wore a rather large hat and had what looked like a Maine Coon whom she would walk around town while running errands, but I haven't seen them in awhile.
Some ramen I ate in town. They give you these super hot sauces to drizzle over the top. The one that they claim is mild is, in fact, the hottest of the lot (at least to my tongue)! It was super delicious though.
Here's that FroYo place. There are indeed bears in that direction, but you'd have to travel about an hour and a half to two to be in their general vicinity. (In like Shasta County).
More Bill. He's super proper with his tail curled elegantly around his front toes.
Gazanias! With no photo manipulation. It came out very contrasty. The brights being bright and the shadows being like dark pools. Apparently these are native to South Africa! They do well in places with hot Summers.
A view from my desk at dusk.
London Bus from the late 40s/early 50s.
Apparently, UC Davis bought a couple of these decades ago as part of Unitrans (the university's transit system), and they are still in service today. There are newer ones also, but I prefer these. The interior lights and the design make them look like floating, elegant throwbacks in the Fall when they parade down Russell Blvd after dark near to campus. I used to ride on them when I was an undergrad and wonder who else had ridden on them over the years.
I woke up last Thursday to find about a dozen of them floating over the town. There were wind sailors also or whatever they are called gliding in between some of the balloons. It was neat when they would vanish into the clouds and then reappear again. They were so cheerful and colorful. It reminded me of something out of a Miyazaki film.
So there is some of my life in photos. I will blablabla more later.
...including some Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell gushing. Has anyone read that book? It's a magnificent door stop that I am in the process of rereading. BBC made it into a seven part series!! It will be on BBC America in June, but if you have access to iPlayer/live overseas it is running right now on BBC One. Not sure how faithful it will be to the book, but it is afterall an adaptation as are all screenplays based on books and if nothing else, it is eye candy of the highest order and faintly ridiculous.
