Time Out

TIME OUT….Harumpf. Kevin said we could post photos, but I don’t see any way of doing that.

What I was going to say was that I’m getting a bit tired of nuclear weapons and treaties and all that, but the issues with them just don’t stop. I’ve been saying that for several years now. Back in the early nineties, I began to think that they would be less of a problem than they had been, but they’re baaaaack!

So I went to see “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull” this afternoon. I enjoyed it immensely and hope to write a review on it, either here or at WhirledView, depending on how long-winded I decide to be.

And I thought I’d post a photo. I do photoblogging at WhirledView, mostly on Tuesdays, but whenever I get to it. I don’t have cats as engaging and beautiful as Inkblot and Domino, but I do take photos of the birds, lizards and wildflowers in my yard.

The photo is from last night, when the wind was blowing and the clouds were sailing. There was even a weather warning for further north of a nasty big cloud that could have produced hail. I haven’t heard that it did. This one grew up after that one was gone, and the photo is facing east at a little before sunset. I’ve posted it at WhirledView if you’re interested. If you click on it, a larger version pops up.

Update: I’ve inserted some code sent me by a helpful hacker. Let’s see if it works. Looks like it did. You can get an even larger version at WhirledView.
