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:

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.
