29/05/15 Very nice  and warm today. Went to Burlington to see the new pier built over the lake , but got sidetracked . I took lots of shots in the library gardens and Rob spent time with an old friend.    I love lupins and this is my favorite color in the lot.  Thanks to all for the comments on my lakeside scene from the 28th.  Will get to lots of commenting time tomorrow.  Happy Friday to all!!   xxxxx

05.29.15  Bouncer: a body guard.  Bouncer is a commonly used word used to convey someone who protects. I thought that in this context, however, it was unusual. After all, back in the Renaissance period, if you had called a guard a bouncer people would have said, "HUH?" Maybe?  El Jay was a Greek Guard in Twelfth Night, the Shakespearean play he was in during the 6th Grade Renaissance Fair.  He is the smallest 6th grade boy (and one of the older ones). So, here is my little boy, playing a burly, tough guard. He loved it.

The Light Tunnels are fun.  This tunnel - less than 200 m. long is straight and fairly dry.  And two boats can pass in the tunnel.  The 'new' tunnel cut about 11 miles off the original route of the canal.  Update:  (six hours later).  Posting before breakfast, I forgot the lexicon challenge.  So the word that fits this picture is "Paraproskokian", a figure of speech in which the latter part of a sentence, phrase, or larger discourse is surprising or unexpected in a way that causes the reader or listener to reframe or reinterpret the first part (Wikipedia).

April 10, 2013    This is a national award winner and a stunning 1958 Buick Super.  You've seen a couple of shots of this car before, but I particularly liked this one showing the full, heavy metal body in the park setting.  It's a real beauty.  It's owner had me take lots of photos for him and he used one on his show board (not seen here).  A showboard is what many classic car owners have the details the unique characteristics of their car, or how/who built it, etc.  For example the one I have for my Mach 1 talks about it being a one-of-one car, and what makes it so.    To see a couple of other photos of this glorious American car, click on the below links.  The first one is my #4 most popular photo, and the second is a stylized version of the first.    http://lgood.smugmug.com/Cars/Classic-Cars/12442807_4GBBqD#!i=1230527772&k=frS6Mgb    http://lgood.smugmug.com/Cars/Classic-Cars/12442807_4GBBqD#!i=1230532693&k=w2np5xM    "I know a lot about cars, man. I can look at any car's headlights and tell you exactly which way it's coming." ~Mitch Hedberg    Have a shiny, perfect chrome sort of day today my friends!    Linda
Carpenter bee...  I spotted this guy while visiting our local nursery. He was really "concentrating" on this flower so I grabbed this shot. Sure not the most handsome of insects, that's for sure!   Carpenter bees are large bees distributed worldwide. Some 500 species of carpenter bees are in the 31 subgenera. Their common name is because nearly all species build their nests in burrows in dead wood, bamboo, or structural timbers. Wikipedia  Thanks for your views , comments and critiques!  May 29, 2015
April 18...  Reflections in a lake
April 11, 2013    Proud and loving the sun.  These giant sunflowers are just spectacular when you see them in the fields, it's just a riot of color that can be intoxicating.  Check this out in the larger sizes to see the bee busily going about his business and the other bug on one of the petals.    "Flowers have an expression of countenance as much as men and animals. Some seem to smile; some have a sad expression; some are pensive and diffident; others again are plain, honest and upright, like the broad-faced sunflower and the hollyhock."  ~ Henry Ward Beecher     Have a glorious day full of sunshine & love today my friends.

January 7 2011.    I am so cold, longing for spring. My chum told me that a large number of friends far away have fallen down.
