Fading Tuesday

Once again, I have been skewered by the decline in memory with age, compounded by the time of day I am writing this (about 3 AM) and a relative lack of sleep (4 hours). I had thought of a great opening for today’s post, but didn’t write it down and it has been lost.

You didn’t think I was going to write about Elvis Presley, did you? I am far more likely to have written about Babe Ruth; both died on this day but, of course, in different years.


My wonderful wife and I stumbled upon this sign on Saturday:



I guess I must now write the obligatory joke. What do toilet paper and the Starship Enterprise have in common? They both search Uranus for Klingons.


Here are some less frivolous photos:



I don’t know what compelled me to take this photo. I think that from where I was sitting it looked as if the shadow was a real structure in the room. Seen here, it has lost something in translation.



I wish I knew how to change shutter speed on my iPhone camera. Then again, maybe I don’t.



The person who wrote the blog L Weaves Words, before an un-fixable issue disabled her access to her own site, used to comment on how amazing the clouds looked in Arizona. I hope she’s reading this.


It was inevitable and long-rumored: Dodge has officially announced it will discontinue the Challenger and Charger models at the end of the 2023 model year. From this CNBC article about the announcement:


2022 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat (left) and 2022 Dodge Challenger SRT Super Stock


What can I do except to lament the march of the lemmings that will, eventually, drag all of us over the cliff?


“Do not go gentle into that good night…

Rage, rage against the dying of the light.”


I am fading, indeed.

  1. I like the structure shown in shadow in that image. I could have seen myself taking the same shot.
    I do love those clouds over the desert skies in your images.
    I am, however, wondering about the backstory on the tiger’s embrace.


    1. The “structure” shown in the shadow is actually just a composite shadow of the window shutters in that room and the stereo furniture shown. The tiger hug photo just showed up in my Twitter feed. I am almost never on Twitter, anymore, but just happened to see that picture.

  2. “They both search Uranus for Klingons.”
    A good one that I had not heard before. Of course my age impacted brain first thought that USS Enterprise referred to the United States Navy carrier from World War II instead of the Star Trek Enterprise. Too much history in my long term memory. Well I’m off to search the internet for information on The Iron Brigade, the 20th Maine and the 5th Michigan Regiment.


  3. As I only drink an occasional cup of coffee, I believe I would pass on that particular coffee provider. Reminds me of some “fad” coffee from a number of years back. The coffee’s claim to fame was that the beans had passed thru the digestive tract of some type of large cat (puma, leopard or some such).
    Some thoughts:
    #1 WTF?
    #2 whose job was it to “find” the beans?
    #3 who the hell wants to drink coffee made from beans dug out of cat scat?

    I’ll stick to Folgers.
