oliver, jumping out of frame

oliver, jumping out of frame

Taken last fall, but it's been on my desktop ever since. Walt's dog, Oliver. Hunter of squirrels. Climber of trees. Noser of oversized balls. I should rephrase that one. When Oli can't fit a ball in his mouth, he'll "nose it over!" at Walt's command.

As for those of you who just dropped by searching oversized balls on google? Welcome. And sorry to disappoint.

heating up the stage

heating up the stage

I guest posted on Dan's blog today (or yesterday if you're in the UK), and he's sending viewers this way with promises of t&a. So, I feel obligated to provide you with some. I'd have more from the weekend, but this bar was dark, my auto-focus doesn't work, and my night-vision fails me. I am old, after all.

If it's just corsets and pasties you're after, feel free to peruse either of my flickr accounts where there's boobage a-plenty. Look for anything labeled Dr. Sketchy's or burlesque:

But let's face it. The pugs get all the hits.

This weekend I took some shots from the flooding in our area, and many more of us tearing up the sidewalk in our backyard in preparation of the new patio. But we also went to see Foxy Veronica's Peach Pies burlesque troupe in action, so that automatically trumps anything else.

working it

Tough day at the office. Ok, not really. Location shots are always a nice break. And it's a bonus when your model is a part-time stripper. Honestly, I had no idea when I picked him. I just needed someone who looked the fireman type. Little did I know he probably owns a tear away uniform.

We got several shots in in the morning before the rain returned in the afternoon. Meaning, we haven't had much relief lately. More tornado warnings this evening, and the amount of roads closed in southern Wisconsin is staggering. Earlier in the week, Lake Delton decided it was tired of providing tourists with waterski shows and took it's own vacation down the Wisconsin River. This evening the news mentioned that the Wisconsin Ducks have been brought out for rescue purposes. Something I've never heard of them doing before. It's armageddon, I tell ya! Apparently hell is very wet. Grab a dry towel before heading down.

It appears it's been some time since this bench has seen an ass.

Ok, other then myself.

Set taken that day.

langhorne slim

langhorne slim

I've been eyeing-balling twitter (only because I want to be as cool as Greg), but since I'm so strapped for time these days, and only check in with my facebook account maybe once a month as it is, I don't feel like I need to be on top of yet another technological trapping. Then, I say this as if I own a cell phone. Which I do not. I'm not even sure how to spell cell phone. Is it one word? Mobile. I like that word better really. I wish we'd adopt the UK version. Especially with the accent, emphasizing "bile". Which is rather appropriate, if I may say so.

To prove how slackluster I've become, this photo was taken a week ago Monday. We went to see Langhorne Slim in Madison. Great show and swell guy. We saw him about six years ago when he opened for The Trachtenburg Family and he hadn't been back to Madison since. Not sure why. But no matter. "Veni, vidi, vici."

See him while you still can this close and experience his spittle first hand. If only there were some way to keep in touch with where musicians were playing at any given moment.

sweet spot

found a sunny spot

Even though it's green on green, it was hard to miss this shiny, little guy as he managed to scope out a slice of sun in the shade of our hostas.

this blog is my "live" photo album of sorts. occasionally, i'll throw in some art i've done or some work of my husband's as he's an artist as well. we have a nice yard in a quiet neighborhood with two pugs and a cat, all black. which most of my photos will attest too. ;) i'd love to hear from you, but happy for you to just browse. hope you find something to make you smile. b.
