Pressed / shed

is the screen. Icons come to it dressed in capes..."

Class is wrapped for the semester! After a round of defensive driving tomorrow (to offset that speeding ticket I received while returning from a medieval conference) I will have more time to wander with a camera.

Congratulations on completing another semester!

Thanks so much for "Pressed/shed" and for introducing me to Barbara Guest.

Thought of you this morning while reading this;

Irony abounds: of course you'd speed up, coming from a medieval conference, to get back with the times.

Admiration also abounds; this is a lovely shot, reminding me somewhat of my face after a too speedy shave.

That is one of the finest metal sheds I've seen in several years of collecting!

Hey everyone!

am: Thanks so very much, for the comment, the link, and your continued "coming back for more." Yay! for both of us!

Shelly: *snork* And yes, I wonder if the Clyde Police Department and Municipal Court count on a few extra tickets when the TEMA Conference travels to Lubbock...

GrannyJ: High praise, thanks much!
