Camera Ready...

Here's what I was rewarded with this week, for carrying a point-n-shoot with me constantly:

This is the view from the end of my street at 8 a.m. one morning this week (YES, I'm supposed to be at work by then; shut UP). A weird, high fog blocked out the sun. Neat effect.

Ho, ho, ho, this biker at Springfield and Duncan had plenty of holiday spirit; the tree and decorations on the back of the bike made me very smiley. On the way home from work, I spotted another driver with blinking lights wrapped around his cowboy hat, and that made me laugh too.

One of my favorite places to shop is a second hand store called Karen's Kloset. I'm no fashion plait, but I spotted a shirt there today, and couldn't help thinking:
Kudos to the Extra-Large Midwestern Gal that has the confidence to step out on the town in this thing:

Click on the pix to enlarge and see the price tag they have on this number!

$37 to look like a literal cow girl.


I'm just not there.

Moo, y'all.


  1. Oh dear..... that shirt is not to my taste at all! But funny! Great pictures, too!

  2. Wild horses couldn't drag me into that shirt! Can you imagine the "Mooooo" calls you'd get from the cowboys. I don't know how may cowboys you have there, but we got quite a few in Arizona.

  3. That is a shirt for a VERY confident woman. WOW! FUGLY!

  4. Can you say, "Halloween costume"?

  5. Can you say, "Halloween costume"?

  6. 'True Grit' indeed. Someone somewhere has a sense of irony.

    Hahahaha! I bought a really cute short western jacket that I thought was a black and white leopard print (as though there is such a thing) and wore it to a club and my sisters were all too eager to tell me it was a cow print!

  8. Kimber: Are you sure? Only $36.99

    AZ: I can imagine the moo calls I'd get from my own son!

    Crazy Me: Call me insecure...

    Nancy: Actually, I do own a full cow halloween costume, rubber udders and all.

    Svenyboy: So, if you'd been shopping with me, you'd have made me pass on this? Yay! I got one right!

    Laurie: I hope you told them it was the hide of a rare holstein leopard.

  9. I'm with you on the shirt. Not there.
    Love the bike!
    It was totally foggy here too. I love how it changes the mood.

  10. Hi G

    I love fog, in the morning, in the evening, at night, walking through it, anytime at all. There is just a stillness and quiet that comes with a good fog that can't be beat. I'd probably even like it if I were driving through it on a bike with a tiny Christmas tree on the back wearing a cow shirt...

  11. Wendy: Wish I'd gotten up earlier to hang out in that fog, instead of discovering it upon opening the garage door to head to work; it DOES change the mood. I mean, the Mooooo-d. har

    Dagoth: I'm with you: the silence of a fog, or a good, heavy snow, with those giant, insulating snow flakes...amazing even on a bike with a tree on the back. But...I'm sorry, dude, the cow-shirt is just an eyesore. Moo-ya!

  12. Ooooohhhhh...your fog looks very familiar to those of us in Britain right now...

    Have a VERY Merry Christmas!!!
