No Splits or Runs

Neither the wood nor the pickup have moved in months,
except for a slide into the side.

Hit and Run

Not quick, not brown, not a fox, and not a good enough jumper*;
but there is a skid mark.

Seen better days

Sad disrepair.

Cart Park

What's going on here?

Clandestine meeting of the grocery cart union?
Off-duty carts taking a smoke break?
Used-cart lot for bag-ladies?
Cart school field trip?

One word

As Mr. McGuire said to Ben in the Graduate,
there is just one word to describe all these flowers.

Beep Beep

They aren't making them like they used to (but they should be).
The smart car of the '50s still lives in Q-topia (and it is still smart).
Nash Metropolitan
This is not the Nash referenced in the song. This is a Metropolitan, that was the larger Rambler; but they looked similar, and the song is more fun if you imagine this one.

Roses are Red (Redux)

There are roses (and more) in bloom all around town.

These are ours.

Roses are red,

Bridal veil's white.

Dead nettle isn't.

Snow in summer? Might.
It's not easy being green, or rhyming.

Not Sesame's Big Bird

A friendly vulture in the neighborhood.
Part of the clean-up crew for a deer that tried to cross the road in the wrong place at the wrong time. Should have paid attention to the Deer Xing sign to avoid being Xed.

May morning

Spanish Peak early on a morning in May after a spring storm.
The FRC Equine Studies mounts are in the foreground pasture.

Clean sweep

Cleaning out the old camera files.
It's still Spring, isn't it?

It's Quincy, you'd expect there to be quince;
and there are, all around town hiding in the back yards.

Photos from mid-April, but forgotten on the camera.
