Look: I am eager to learn stuff I don't know--which requires actively courting and posting smart disagreement.

But as you will understand, I don't like to post things that mischaracterize and are aimed to mislead.

When the warm weather finally shows us, this will be just the ticket for a sunny day.

Fun photo indeedy!

But what's up with the controversial lawn jockey in the upper right-hand corner? *getting stern-y and folding arms across chest* Explain yoursellf, young man. *tapping foot* I'm waiting.

(LOL, sort of, but then again, hardly(?)

Yes, I guess some explanation is in order. The setting is the lawn of the cottage we've rented for the past several Summers, on Cold Water Lake. That politically incorrect statue belongs to the owner of the next property.

Picture subjects are my lovely wife, and two of the granddaughters.

Turn the camera angle 90 degrees to the right, and that's where you'll find the beach from Sunday's Shadow Shot. I've gotten quite a bit of mileage from pix at that spot.

Thanks for the tootback! For the longest time, my mother-in-law kept one (The Statue) outside near her front door. *shudder* Finally, we were able to get her to store it indoors. "Yarnell" joined us for major holidays up until Mom went into the retirement center last year. (A sheet drapes the lawn jockey in her garage until further notice.)
