About Jefferson Beauregard Corn-Pone

I am listening a bit to the interrogation of him by the panel of Senators, and I find him to be a splendid representation of the level of honesty, transparency, regard for the people and their concerns, and readiness for his office as is also exhibited by the rest of our current government.

In other words, I am appalled at the hesitancy and fearfulness in the responses, and disgusted that this ignorant person represents the head of our Department of Justice.

The swamp was drained and everything that was found in the muck was elevated into the current cabinet.
The Peter Principle at work all around us.

The physical appearance of 45 is seriously moving to the basement

of whatever the basement of "the dump" he lives in looks like.

I am a very visually oriented person, so this is not anything more than what I am saying. He seems to be melting into more and more ugly, the hair is almost not working any more, and the jowls and the color are getting worse, too. His gestures are overtaking his physique.

I had given his deterioration and departure til the last of August, and I lost.
I now think, the "Christmas" he wants to howl about (being again so important as a diversion) might be my next point of possible departure of this disaster.

Let's pray for it.
In whatever way you might feel comfortable doing it.

If you saw this at the side of the road - would you squeal the brakes?

Would you step closer and circle it with your camera, oblivious to the fact your companions are keeping the motor running, not coming out of the car with you, and cautioning you about folk with guns on the porch of the house next door?

I was thinking of you guys when I took these, and that you would be right there beside me.

On another note: I am not happy with the quality of the uploads on this new site, the name of which I now forget. The speed of the upload should have given away to me that the quality is suffering. None of the photos I took and posted in the last few days look as good reproduced here as they do on my monitor.
Back to searching for a new provider.

Enjoy this wild little barn in the Virgina back lands.

Thanks to all who entered, and to all who may still consider it.

Off the beaten path - more Sunday afternoon discoveries

I was traveling the beaten paths with friends, and coming back into NC from VA one of them took us off those to show me the house where his father was born.
I was told they do not plan to demolish it, and what you are looking at is my circling the house and the back outbuilding with my camera.
















This last photo is an old tobacco storage shed.


Weeds - and a praying mantiss

I"m on a roll with this use of "postimage".
Who knew it could be so fast and easy to upload?




Today in Old Virginny - an ancient truck and perfect pumpkins












I used this to test "postimage" - mourning with clenched teeth that photobucket is dead for me - and guess what:
It was easy, very acceptable reproduction, and much much faster all the way around.
