WANTED: THE TIME STRETCHING GADGET

Time travel? Invisibility? Anywhere doors? Nope, none of the above. What I need — right now — is a time extender.

I need something that makes every 24 hours give me as much time as 48. The faster I try to go, the behinder I seem to get. Now, the holiday is barreling down on me.

Sadly, the local gadget store is not selling a time extender, so I’m going to bite into the mountain of work I’ve been nibbling at and see if I can reduce it to a molehill … and make my deadline which is getting scarily close.

If I don’t come to visit your site, forgive me. I still love you all, but this stuff I’m committed to ain’t getting done. I know of no way to fix it other than to simply do it.

Maybe they’ve invented a clone-copy machine. I can use it to make a second me. She can do the stuff for which I don’t have time. You think?

WOOD AND METAL: CEE’S FUN FOTO CHALLENGE

CEE’S FUN FOTO CHALLENGE: METAL AND WOOD

cee's fun foto chall

From Cee:

This week’s topic is Metal and Wood.  Any photo that has both metal and wood in it. It can be a table that is made from both wood and metal or a photo of something metal and trees or logs prominent in the photo as well.  Both items need to be represented somehow.

I had to think about what things are made of. After all, wood and metal ought to be easy, right?

Wooden doors have steel hinges. Wooden benches have iron legs. Trees are wood, cars are metal … or metallic, at least.

The barn roof is metal … tin, mostly I would guess.

Horseshoe and chains are definitely metal, but the boards are surely wood.

Tractor and cars … heavy metal, but the trees are the origin of wood.

An iron bridge amidst the trees. You can’t quite see it, but the bridge is wood over iron.

Wooden docks and decks, iron cleats and aluminum masts.
