The World According to Abe



“I used to be with it










but then they changed what "it" was.




Now, what I'm with isn't it, and what's “it” seems weird and scary to me.”

 ~Grandpa Simpson of The Simpsons








Notes about the images:
  1. reflection of box turtle on water
  2. looking at turtle thru a window with reflection of poker chips on the glass
  3. same as first image but cropped and set vertically

Today your eye is on the unusual, strange and fascinating shots, Diane.

Your countdown says three more weeks to go until your grandson puts in an appearance. I hope he doesn't make us wait any longer than that, I'm anxious to see my first grand-nephew.

It took me a while to figure out what I was looking at! Great photos and perfect quote.

I've been having problems with a spammer/stalker (don't even know what to call such a mean person) over on my blog and have had to make it private and accessible only to those I've invited. The problem with that is that I don't have email addresses for many of my blogger friends (like you) that visit my blog.

So, be patient with me. When I get up my courage to deal once again with these meanies, I'll go public again--maybe in a week or two.

Martha, I thought it would be fun to do a post that was a little "different."

It is exciting that in just a couple of weeks or so we'll be adding a new member to our family tree. Victoria looks like she's ready!

You have driven me crazy.

I stared at the first picture trying to figure out what it is.

Only after the last one then I know it is the head and its reflection.

Good picture.

You know, I didn't even see the box turtle in the first picture until you pointed out. I was too busy looking at the duck's head. :-))
