I just found the images I took last summer of Skinny Bitch and Will Yummy, just before I was kidnapped into a camping trip.

I had always wanted to convey the enormity of the cocktail glasses that Skinny Bitch uses, and finally! I have photographic evidence.

Thanks to Linda for reminding me to post puzzles.

My neice, Wild Child, gave birth early to her twin boys. You know, the ones that I Photoshopped tiaras onto?

And yesterday? Memarie Lane went into labour, and live blogged the event. Whew!

I take my hat off to both of them.

And? I take my furniture inside in honour of Hurricane Kyle, which is fast approaching hereabouts. It’s supposed to make landfall this evening. So there is battening down of the hatches, putting the frozen meat in the big freezer, checking batteries, candles, storm windows, and supplies. I hope we don’t lose power, but if we do, there will be no phone or internet.

Another Hurricane guy, Coast Rat, who left his home up north a few years ago to help rebuild after Hurricane Katrina has since had to hang onto his hat for Hurricane Gustav. (It must be discouraging to get damage on top of the damage you are trying to clean up.)

He is a photographer with an amazing eye, and I so enjoy his images and stories. He told me I could help myself to them for my puzzles, and so I present to you, quite a treat.

First thing I want to pimp is a Maine photographer, long time internet friend of mine:

Marie in Maine has been sharpening her shutter skills while gadding about in Maine. I love that she takes us with her on her travels here and there. I love this image of Wild Rose Lighthouse so much that you can enjoy it in puzzle form, right heah. (That’s Maine talk, ayup)

Another thing that falls more under self-pimping is something I have slacked on lately. This is the last month of voting for the Blogger’s Choice Awards, and for some quirky reason, I want to win in my category of Freakiest Blogger. You have to register, but it’s painless, and you only have to register once to vote for whomever you wish. In other categories, durnit! See? I’ve made it easy for you. No need to mouse over to that pesky sidebar. Just click here. I love you long time.

My site was nominated for Freakiest Blogger!

More reasons to love you long time? Besides the fact that you are funny and smart, and pretty, and, my? Have you lost weight? Every time you click over from your reader, BlogHer records the hit for a tiny bit of revenue. So far, I’ve got my hosting fees covered, but it would be nice to actually make some money for the time I spend at my computer. With that in mind, I would like to re-introduce you to the mighty StumbleUpon.

I loves me a Stumble, I does. It brings traffic to my site. New people who may just read my particular post, or decide to subscribe and come back to see what I’m up to next. Each new person who clicks on the actual site brings me about 1/20 of a cent. Every time! I totally made that figure up, but you really need to have volume to get any real income from the ads. Some of my posts that I’m not totally ashamed of are these ones.

Handsome Henry

The Young Shaman


Blunk Drogging

You Can See Your Farts

Island Medicine

You could Stumble them. There’s a thingie (technical term) at the bottom of each post that says “Stumble It!”

Note: Sometimes, “Stumble It!” doesn’t show up, but the icon is still there. Work with me. My new job hasn’t kicked in yet.

Did I mention I would love you long time?

I came across some beautiful images from Christopher F Carr by following his link after he commented on my site.

He graciously allowed me to use this one, and it is perfect for puzzling. I just love to discover and showcase photographers!

One of my artist friends is also an avid photographer. She loves to capture beauty and contrast, and sometimes does series to make political statements.

This is not the case here, as she is celebrating colour. Please visit her gallery to see more of her images.
