Blogging and Lent

Ash Wednesday is tomorrow.  I’m planning on giving up the internet for fun purposes.  No myspace (not a biggie), no Facebook, no forums, no blogging or blog reading.  I’m on hiatus.

The only exceptions are Sunday’s (it’s allowed), e-mail (I’ll still see your comments and such, just no reply’s from me until Sunday), Work related internet & banking.

Google reader will get a bit full and F F Friday will be put on hold for a few weeks.  I’ll survive and get much more work done in the mean time.  Maybe after Easter I’ll come back with a better grip on things.  Maybe Sunday’s will be once consolidated post:  Wordless Wednesday, Thursday Thirteen, F F Friday and Photohunt all rolled into one.  We’ll see.

Later all and have a Blessed Lenten season.

F F Friday (39)

Here we are folks.  Time for fucking floral Friday with Saintseester


This could also be flannell floral Friday.  This is the floral print on our flannel sheets!  I thought I was going to need to put regular sheets back on the bed, but it got cold again.  Fucking winter!  ENOUGH!!!

Photohunt: Nautical

I had a difficult time with this one, as I live in land-locked Central Illinois.  I had to go back to some of my old non-scanned photo’s and this is what I found.

Photohunt: Bridges



By all means these are not recent photos.  I took these in spring 1991 while I was staying in Bridgnorth England with my cousin.  I couldn’t decide which photo to use, so I picked both.  The first one was on the way to Daniels Mill and this was on my walk home.
