Dave!While walking to the post office this sunny afternoon, I noticed that the crocuses are in bloom. Along with California poppies and bachelor buttons, the crocus is one of my favorite flowers. I like the purple ones best, but they come in dozens of varieties that are equally beautiful. These poor guys are growing outside of a tavern so, in addition to the crappy weather we've been having, they also have to worry about drunks trampling all over them.

Not an easy life, to be sure... but it is a pretty one.

Also along the way to the Post Office, I ran across this poor dog so ugly that it was almost cute. And that got me to thinking about how dogs are so much more practical than we are when it comes to determining who they want to hang with. They don't care what other dogs look like as long as their ass smells okay. Shouldn't it be the same with people?

And one last thing before my lunch is over... has anybody noticed that Google has been "Van Gogh-ed?" That's kind of cool because his Starry Night is one of my favorite paintings...

Google Van Gogh

Bummer. I'm still hungry.

  1. Do you have to post nice, well thought-out, long posts twice a day just to show up the rest of us?

    *shakes fist with mock anger*

    Nice? Well thought-out?

    Errrr… did you accidentally post this to the wrong blog? Because all I do is ramble along at a breakneck speed until my fingers cramp up and I have to stop. Very little thought is actually involved. Story of my life, really.

    And anybody who calls Kitty Spangles a “little whore” is not at all nice. Though I’m kind of proud of that. 🙂

  3. Are you kidding me? This is the kind of … randomnity that I aspire to. Oh if only I had something nice to write about like Kitty Spangles solitiare.

    That had me laughing my ass off by the way, the whole “Kitty Spangles” saga.

    And you do post regularly which counts for something. I’m lucky if I post once a week – although the FridayQ has ensured that at least once a week some kind of content will appear on AWSP.

    I was most happy to see “post office” in a post by you seein’s how I consider them Utopia. Lovely fleur photos… looked like a lovely day in the neighborhood.

  5. girlonaglide says:

    Oh yes… forgot to mention I noticed the Van Gogh artistry, too. One of my most beloved material items is a lithograph signed by Tom Wilson showing Ziggy painting the Starry Night with a sparkler.

  6. Dave2 says:

    I sometimes feel like I am cheating or something, because I read about how people spend hours composing their blog entries and coming up with something to say… and it just doesn’t work that way for me. Maybe it’s because I think about something that I might want to write about for a while before sitting down to actually type it out? I rarely spend more than 10 minutes.

    Of course, Kitty Spangles is excellent source material. 🙂

    The day was beautiful, and we certainly deserved it. The weather has been terrible lately… not good for riding at all. Our local post office is fairly small and boring, but it serves its purpose (and I’ve certainly seen worse!).

    I sometimes take a long time to write a post mainly because my grammar is so awful and I write like I speak and rarely on the first go around does it make any sense at all. Kind of like that amazing sentence.

  8. karla says:

    My posts are usually already written in my head before I blurt them out “on paper”. What does take me time is my morrible, too fast mistake filled typing.
    I agree with you on the ass smelling thing, btw. Would make life much easier.

  9. karla says:

    Um…make that “horrible”. I don’t actually know what “morrible” is. See? My typing? Sucks.

  10. Dave2 says:

    And here I thought you were making a funny! 🙂
