Yesterday was pretty ugly













"If you don't like your job, you don't strike. You just go in every day and do it really half-assed. That's the German Way."

Rock chalk JaySchalke & their olé! so-called, could-have-landed-a-fleet-of-helicopters-in-the-gaps, I'm-on-coffee-break defense was U-G-L-Y sans alibi, as is the fact that I'm reduced to, barring intervention by the indifferent cosmos, rooting for the least devilish of the über-spenders, Barcelona.

So here's some pretty from the backyard of yours truly.













































Something nicked that doe, though at least it wasn't (presumably) a bullet, the faintest of shockers in a suburb flush with crackerrific yahooery.

Shalke doesn't belong with the other 3 in talent, but Neuer is a monster -- a complete beast in goal. As for Barca-Real Madrid, well. at least it isn't 2 Italian clubs.

One of the finer aspects of urban decay is that nature comes close enough to nibble the grass you'd otherwise be forced to mow.

When you come up against the Almighty that is the Red side of Manchester all you can do is roll over and take it up the von schitter!! Hahaha!!

Nice big yard you've got there. Make sure none of them crackeriffic yahoos are trespassing.

S.W. Anderson said...

Cool. I'm reassured that you chose to snap photos instead of wave your arms and yell, "Get offa my lawn!" :)

thatgirl said...

Yay! Someone else uses the word crackerific too!

I'm with Jim, I saw those deers and all I could think was grilled venison with steamed asparagus and a nice red wine.

Demeur said...

Oh great rats with hooves. Just what you need. Doh!

Randal Graves said...

okjimm, gasp!

susan, if it keeps on rainin', levee's gonna break & the deer will have meals for a year.

david, alright, mate, assuming form holds, tell me why I should root for ManU instead of Unicef. Bribes are welcome.

tom, don't see too many stars & stripes these days. We've probably been invaded by the UN.

SWA, are you kidding? Animals are much nicer than 99 44/100% of people.

thatgirl, who do you think I stole it from? We *do* live in Thieveland, after all.

BB, you violent, anti-Bambi bastards.

demeur, you're assuming I haven't trained them like the DoD has with dolphins.

Because you know it's the decent thing to do. All those footballers are starving and struggling to make a living.....sorry, I got that the wrong way round. ;-)
