Hanging Out With A Dinosaur

Not so hard to imagine when dinosaurs roamed the earth. 

Here’s one in the gallery, and he’s sort of guarding the entrance.Β 

With dinosaurs, you just gotta watch out for the teeth and the tail. 

A domesticated pet it isn’t, yet some people don’t even notice it standing there!

We know we’re getting old when we’re hanging with dinosaurs or are we the dinosaurs as the next generation pass us by?Β  πŸ˜‰

WTF Is It?

Art but what the heck:

Do these thingamajigs represent people standing tall and with arms raised high?

Are you supposed to hang things off of it like jewelry?

Can you place on it reminder notes or small pictures using push pins?

Then again maybe it’s a toy for a child or even a pet?

In the end, all I can say is WFT is it?

Perhaps that’s what the meaning of art is!Β  πŸ˜‰

Dr Merry-Go-Round

So I was talking with a friend and he was pretty frustrated with the state of medical care these days.

He mentioned that no doctor wants to take responsibility for the patient anymore. 

Maybe that’s why they punt to other doctors and have big medical malpractice insurance. 

But he said something really interesting…

“You wind up going on doctor merry-go-round until you [actually] find someone willing to help…”

One doctor sends you to another doctor and this one sends you to that specialist and it goes on and on. 

Sometimes they just can’t figure out what’s wrong. 

Usually comes across as trial-and-error or a process of elimination. 

But then if they don’t want to deal with you or don’t know what’s wrong or how to treat they pass you off to the next doctor and so on, and so on. 

I suppose to a certain extent it makes sense because medicine like many technical fields is very specialized now-a-days. 

But how much is it the specialization stuff and how much is it that they just don’t want to deal with the hard stuff or don’t want the liability. 

Dr. Merry-Go-Round takes you on a very nauseous ride and makes it tough sometimes to get the care you need.  πŸ˜‰

All American Hummer

Hummer is a large mother car. 

Based on military Humvee, so rules the road. 

They should’ve never gotten rid of these. 

Big and rugged like you’d expect in America. 

This one has the red, white, and blue colors to prove it!  πŸ˜‰

Washington Monument Tall and Proud

Thought this was a pretty picture of the Washington Monument. 

Marble Obelisk that stands tall and proud against the clear blue sky in the nation’s capital

Inspiring and hopeful for the future, if people don’t blow the opportunities for collaboration and progress.  πŸ˜‰

What Children Learn

Excellent poem by Dorothy Nolte:

What children experience at home is what they learn to become. 

Sure people can change their thinking and actions.

But any negative voices of the past may still echo in theirs heads. 

That is until people tell them “hush, be quiet!”

And they replace old voices and experiences with new thinking about themselves and what they are capable of positively doing with their lives and in their relationships with others. 

We all need to know what we value about ourselves and our lives and then make sure that we do those things. 

So at the end of days, we can answer for our lives in an affirmative way! πŸ˜‰

Cheesecake and Whipped Cream

What is thisβ€”like a million calories?

Rich cheese cake.

Whipped cream spilling unto the sides.

Chocolate and sugar topping. 

Your pants will never close again after this!  πŸ˜‰
