Hey! It is dark already! It's only 8:18! (Here on the East Coast anyway.)

I was just out working in the yard, tackling the mugwort that has run amuck! I know I'm off topic but I hate to see the summer slipping away!

~smile~ I knew you were joking...but I have to wonder, is that a tin-foil hat you are wearing or what?

I'm not sure what it is I wish I could figure out how to blow it up a bit so I could see exactly what's going on. It looks like maybe a colander or pot of some kind?

I thought the same...but it also reminds me of some kind of viking helmet...or Thor-like helmet.

I'm still trying to figure out why that particular picture was picked for me...but I have to wonder about yours as well.

Maybe some kind of viking type homemade alien transmission blocking helmet.

When I read your post in the other thread about your avatar not being a big chicken but a man with a large ROOSTER..... I about fell out of my chair laughing

Exactly. My thoughts exactly...except it could be any thought-controling transmissions.

I couldn't help myself.

I (semi-jokingly) tell people that if I want to be sure of seeing wildlife, I leave my camera at home.

And I am (thankfully) still a turtle. http://imgs.xkcd.com/comics/turtles.png

I've actually done that...sort of. Sometimes I don't feel like going in for the camera...and I just walk the yard knowing I could have an encounter with no way to record it--and it is (pretty much) okay with me. I have actually had a camera in hand and still missed an encounter--a turkey that I surprised (and it surprised me) as I was turning a bend in my path. It took flight and got out of range before I got the camera up and focused.

I can relate. I sometimes feel that I'm so focused (no pun intended) on getting a shot, that I'm not really enjoying the moment in full. I generally don't feel that way, but I sometimes do remind myself that the memory is the most important record that I have.

Still, it's nice to get an awesome picture!
