Mr. Bill runs his five miles in the morning somewhere in D.C. He stopped and took some photos. They are on my tumblr site along with some other ones that I took.
The clouds moved in so the view of the Blood Moon was blocked. The rain started late last night and I woke to wet floral this morning. The colors are vibrant and at their best with a touch of water added to them. Today’s top nine are posted on my tumblr site.
I was out taking photos last night of the moon and cherry blossoms. There are a couple more on my tumblr site. http://carrollestewart.tumblr.com/
Just penned this little ditty….hey, it’s Monday…and I am channeling my Poe muse today.
Song of the Damned
The blood moon shall rise this dark night
Upon the thundering shore
Spring’s first blossoms shudder with fright
as the wind wails a song forlorn.
“Be at peace” it mocks…
There is no peace here
And death without hope is born
For the blood moon sits upon the sky
While life from Earth is shorn.
The brave do tremble the weak do weep
and cast about for more—
For left are those that puke and watch
Until they are no more.
Hey de ho for those who are not faint of heart or smell. Spring is here and critters are coming out to find a mate, eat, and bask in the warm sun and spread their own version of joy around.
All manner of critters…for instance what is black and white and read all over…a newspaper. What is black and white and red all over…oh dear…skunk that is road kill.
While cruising the country roads, a very recognizable odor hit my nostrils and around the curve several yards ahead was the dead animal responsible for this overpowering sensation. Yes, it was Pepe la Peu in all of his skunk glory.
I have seen different variations of the home made recipe for the following. They all jive up with what the boys and girls from Myth Busters proved. And by the way, if you have not watched Myth Busters, you should.(Televison actually worth watching.) What I learned from one episode was the following….the commercial stuff does not get rid of the skunk smell. I have one friend who can testify to that. Here is what does:
1 qt 3% hydrogen peroxide
1/4 c baking soda
1 tsp liquid soap
Mix and apply to the car, house, and especially critter that has been sprayed. Be sure that you keep this from their eyes and outa their face. Rub it in thoroughly and then bathe as directed with their critter shampoo.
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!DO NOT STORE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Use it then toss it.
And actually, this stuff is good for any smells, the boys and girls on the TV say, not just skunk.
