It’s that time of year when flying termites descend by the thousands, chew off their wings and go in search of delicious wood to munch. These fellas thankfully got caught in a huge rainstorm that lasted for hours, pinning them by their wings. I woke up to drifts of them in places like these steps up to the garage. Kinda ghastly, but definitely oddball.
I absolutely love this photo. Whatever Dee is relating to Colleen has turned her cross-eyed. Lynda, bored, couldn’t care less and has taken solace in her iPhone. Whoever is lurking to the side could probably fill us in on what is being talked about here.
Be it a mariachi’s guitar or a detail of my friend Larry’s guitar, I love the artistry of musical instruments. Then, I couldn’t resist adding photos of one of the guitars whose artistry I attempted to augment.

Lake Taco and Car Wash is onto a good idea. As cars wait their turn to be washed, their owners can dine in the attached palapa restaurant. They had some good offerings for the main course and if the specials of the day, seen here, didn’t tickle our palates, we could always order off the menu. We balked, however, at the dessert:
The resident friendly cat rubbed up against our legs, assuring us she could finish any dessert leftovers, but still we demurred. “Then how about the shrimp burger?” she purred. It was beef hamburgers for us, all around. We skipped dessert.
Here are two more of my “painterly” edits of photos. I wish I could paint this well. I believe the first is a detail, with some editing, cropping and deletions, of a night shot of the sky with an overhanging roofline. The second is an edited detail of a blue heron in flight taken at Sea Ranch, California. Only the “Photos” editing software that came with my Mac was used.
