I’ve probably mentioned that we’ve planted several fruit trees here at our new place… or, more accurately, fruit twigs. They’re not really big enough to be called “trees” yet.
So imagine my surprise when I spotted something on our peach twig. Then imagine my laughter when I realized the “something” was actually two small fuzzy spheres cuddled together on one tiny branch. I’ve always had a bad habit of assigning gender to inanimate objects, but in this case I can say unequivocally “It’s a boy!”
And while we’re in that… *ahem* …area, here’s some news in brief (sorry, couldn’t resist): Apparently a researcher in the States is seeking over 3600 photos of men’s penises in order to determine whether Size Does Matter to a guy’s social and psychological makeup. If you’re an investor, now might be a good time to buy shares in Photoshop. I predict a firming trend in their stock, perhaps even a dramatic rise.
I dunno; I’m no expert, but it seems to me that if you’re looking for meaningful insights into male psychology you might not want to draw all your study data from the subset of ‘Guys Who Want To Send You Dick Pics’. But I notice the researcher looks a tad annoyed in the news photo, so she’s probably had more than enough razzing already. I’ll just let the topic, um… subside.
According to my blogging buddy Tom Merriman and Charlie O’Shields from Doodlewash, July is #WorldWatercolorMonth. I’ve been envying Tom’s talent for quite a while now, so I’m happy to finally be able to join the fun. And hey, my watercolour subject even suits the theme of this post! (Okay, I’m reaching a bit; but still.) Anyhow, seventy-nine years ago, ‘it was a boy’ for Hubby’s Uncle Bert’s parents.
We were invited to the birthday party, and Bert’s only request was “No gifts, just homemade birthday cards”. He has led a fascinating life that includes many years of owning his own business driving trucks and operating heavy equipment. Bert had retired by the time I got to know him, but he still does odd jobs with his loader/backhoe. So my imagination took flight (so to speak):
What’s up in your world this week?
