Random cell phone photos; (or): My second double rainbow in two weeks, a tumbleweed on a beach, my dog ate my f*&%$#g books, a really cold car, a cool bird, and an upside down cat…

a 1

Just clearing a few photos off my phone from the last few days of my crazy life. That is the second double rainbow I have seen within two weeks. What are the odds of that?

A tumbleweed on the beach at Mission Bay in San Diego. If that doesn’t sum up Southern California in one picture, I don’t know what would, except for snowy mountains in the distance, which you can see from very close to this spot.

That osprey, in her nest, not far from that tumbleweed.

So yesterday, I drove up to Anaheim, near Disneyland,  to help my daughter do some college-related stuff. I got home to find this. Yes, I left the dogs in our office, because it was supposed to rain.

Usually, the young, dumb dog only chews up his own bed. This time, he ate five or six books. They were all the very first copies of my novels the ones that I ordered, to do one final edit and check for formatting errors and bad spelling. They still had my hand-done fixes. I am still mad.

Okay, that helps cheer me up.

I know that is a horrible, back-lit picture, but I think I see a little baby in the nest! I need to go back down with my real camera and the zoom lens.

And I kept that one because it is artsy.

Yeah, I need better photos. Ospreys are awesome.

And yesterday morning, my car was covered in ice. In San Diego, that is a rarity.

And not the thin kind of ice you can wipe off. This was a solid layer. Oh man, I should have used my digital microscope on those crystals.

Where are my ice skates???

Hey, I promised you an upside down cat.

Okay, see you soon.

    My god. They caused quite some havoc!!!

    And love the upside down cat.

  2. I guess the dog doesn’t like your writing and was trying to tell you in the most discreet way possible. That’s the great thing about dogs; they don’t hold anything back to avoid hurting your feelings. But, as an artist, you should know you can’t possibly please everyone. The ice sheet on your car also could be a symbolic review of your writing – or a sign of global warming. But the double rainbow sightings most like represent the future of you and your artwork. So cheer up, brother! See! I solved all the confusion in a single paragraph!
