POTD: The Purpose of Life…

Posted on

I am an avid herbal tea drinker. My favorite brand is Traditional Medicinals. They always put inspirational thoughts and quotes on the tea bag tag. I love this one. ~Vic

POTD: Hurricane Supplies

Posted on Updated on

Hurricane Matthew in 2016 made four landfalls, hitting Haiti, Cuba, The Bahamas and, then, finally, the area of McClellanville, SC. It dumped a lot of rain on us and our river across the street flooded quite a bit.

As with any storm, supplies are always needed as no one really knows how bad BAD can get. Growing up, it was usually the snow & ice storms that would send folks to the stores for the “bread & milk” run. These days, any storm brings on the shelf-wiping. Standing in line at one of my local Food Lions, I couldn’t help myself. I had to snap this shot. There were people walking by, stopping, looking, shaking their heads and walking away. I started to giggle. This was the caption that popped into my head…

Forget the milk. For God’s SAKE, get the DR PEPPER!

POTD: Caterpillar

Posted on

The weather has been gorgeous over the last couple of days. My birthday was nothing but blue skies and low humidity. Yesterday was the same. Now that we have Dorian headed towards an East Coast pub crawl, the clouds have been moving in. This looked like a giant caterpillar to me. ~Vic

POTD: Patience

Posted on

On the way to the restaurant I mentioned in my post, yesterday, there was a pit stop for gas. Not only was this a cool looking older truck, the adorable pooch waiting patiently for his owner was so sweet.

This definitely comes under the heading of “things you don’t see everyday.” I was walking home from our local market when I caught sight of this on a pick-up truck, parked in the library parking lot. ~Vic

POTD: The Other Shroom

A week ago, I posted a photo of a rather large tree mushroom. It had a smaller twin on the other side. We’ve had a very wet spring. ~Vic

Going back fifteen years, this is a shot of Buddy, interrupting an exercise routine. This was during my Texas years. He was such a sweet baby and I still miss him. ~Vic

I saw the Cardinal thru the Den window. It was perched on one of the torches. Just as I took the shot, he took off. I was pleasantly surprised to capture him diving relatively clearly. ~Vic

POTD: The Dead Guide

Posted on

Yes. He’s dead…by his own admission. I heard him say he was born in 1735 when addressing his tour subjects. He was pleased that I wished to photograph him. I guess the lantern adds to the spookiness.

The town I live in is haunted…in some places. It’s pretty common knowledge. It is an old town. During the summer, there are ghost tours. I’m not kidding. I might take a tour one day. ~Vic

POTD: Examiner Encounters #2

Posted on

When I posted my first Examiner Encounter, I should have numbered it. I have a few of these things.

I climbed into a guy’s car for a road test and met his little friend. I asked him if he minded me taking a picture of it. He posed her a little bit for me. Then, I asked him “Favorite past-time?” “Nah.” was his response. “It was gift from a friend…a female friend, no less.”

This comes under the heading of “Things You Don’t See Everyday.” I DO miss this job sometimes. ~Vic

POTD: Examiner Encounters #1

Posted on Updated on

From October 2014 to August 2016, I was a Driver’s License Examiner. I had several interesting encounters and experiences. The job wasn’t bad but, HQ was a terrible problem. Politics is a nasty business.

This kid was the customer of one of my co-workers but, I started to giggle when I read it. He didn’t mind me taking a picture. ~Vic

Well…I had intended to post about the 1959/1960 Payola Scandal that involved Dick Clark but, apparently, The History Channel can’t make up its mind which day it happened on. *sigh*

So, instead, Photo of the Day. ~Vic
