OK, it's not an original photo, but it does give me an opportunity to wish you all belated holiday greetings, and apologize for being an inactive blogger lately. Between family arriving from other states, holiday planning, shopping and cooking, and a trip to the ER last week, it has been hectic here in Boston.
This comic deals with medical technology, of which I am thankful (there, I've satisfied my Gratitude Friday post as well) because I suffered, for the first time, vertigo last week in work. It was a little unsettling as it affected my vision, which in turn affected my balance, which resulted in an ambulance ride to the hospital's ER. I'm fine now. Thankfully, the diagnosis was vertigo and nothing more serious. Halleluia for medical technologies: EKG monitors, blood pressure monitors, oxygen monitors, MRI's. All good stuff!

Thought this week's theme would be difficult as I have this 'thing' - thanks to my Irish friend into folklore - that photos of birds are bad luck. But, I did manage to get a few from my files - the lady's hand feeding the bird is from Byoto-In Temple on Oahu, the long-legged stork is on a beach in Naples, Florida and the last was taken from the beach at the street's end in Falmouth - gulls of course!
For those celebrating Thanksgiving, have a good day!

Work has been tedious and crammed with = well = work! On top of everything else - being close to short holiday break - applications due for various things - trips to be planned (no - not me) - the college is going through a complete change over to new hardware and new software systems. So, my computer is now a clean slate - which means none of my photos are stored here at the moment.
Wish my brain were a clean slate at the moment ....

The world would be black and white without music. I was fortunate to grow up in a family where music was a part of daily life - from playing instruments to classical music on the 'phonograph'. I love all types of music, but rock and roll is my favorite genre. Jazz is a close second. Saturday routines include a healthy dose of classical music; Sunday mornings reserved for a whole helping of jazz. I am just beginning to listen to the local country radio station on my way to work and have a bit of Sugarland and Lady Antebellum on my ipod. So much to choose from ....

A few photos taken in April on our trip to DC. The WWII memorial took a while to come to fruition, but it is awesome to see the care and thought that is evident in this structure. Each state is represented by the columns surrounding the fountain of hope. Of course, the Vietnam memorial, both the wall and the soldiers statue evoke many unpleasant memories for me as this was my era. The nurses tribute is long overdue. The Korean Conflict tribute is unique with the soldiers seemingly marching through a field, the wall beside them being a reflection to enhance your visualization of more troops.
