Heads, you win.
Tails, I win.
Wait a minute, was that a squirrel?
Heads it is. You win then. (And yes, it was a squirrel, George).
Unfortunately, there’s no prize. But you’re the winner today. And I’m the weiner, then. I can live with that.
I took these photos yesterday afternoon before I skipped out to spend an evening with two of my co-workers. Earlier in the week, I’d ordered a new camera lens from Amazon.com and yesterday it came! I’d always wanted a little 50 mm lens and I am now the proud owner of a Nikkor AF 50 mm 1.8 lens which I used to take all the pictures above. They’re all SOOC, which is rare for me as it always seems I have to do something to my pictures. But the 50 mm is a great little lens for portraits.
Oh, and about last night. It began as a simple get together to share a glass or two of wine, and some fruit. My favorite new snack, by the way, is strawberries with a dollop of whipped cream cheese and a dunk into some soft brown sugar. I’ll have a new favorite next week, but for now it’s this.
The evening ended up, however, at a local blues bar after Nancy called to see if they had any live music that evening. Sally was balking about going, but by the end of the evening, we had trouble dragging her away. We got there just before the musicians arrived and found a table that we moved to the edge of the dance floor. The musicians began arriving and we sipped our wine while we watched them setting up. They played a rousing set of rockin’ blues music including a favorite Allman Bros. Band song of mine (One Way Out). We all ended up dancing after a lesbian couple bought us a round of shots. I think they didn’t want to be the only ones on the dance floor, although they were quite interesting to watch.
I love to dance, and by the time the set ended with the band playing Brown Eyed Girl by Van Morrison, we had a full dance floor and I was jumping up and down (as were others) and ended up peeing my pants.
Now THAT’S my kind of evening.
Sorry I mentioned the pee. I’m just keeping it honest here.
Thanks for your kind comments on my last post. I didn’t mean to worry anyone. It’s just that sometimes I get bummed. ‘Nuf said.
