Given the Pink Slip


My sister works at the national headquarters of a large insurance company. Because of downsizing, they have been moving employees from one of their three buildings to the other two. Most of this building is vacant of people, but is still full of office furniture and equipment in semi-organized areas.

Sunset Ship

Sunset Laker Somehow the freight ships know before a storm comes. If I see one parking in the bay by our house, I can guess a storm is soon on the way. A half hour after this one showed up today, the wind got really gusty.

Later, while the sun was setting, I noticed it reflecting off the "laker". The color lasted for only a few minutes.

Refrigerator 3

Photofriday Challenge: "Shoot something in your refrigerator that you always take out"

Beer might be something I take out most, even though I don't drink often, I might drink more often than I eat?

Photofriday Challenge: "Shoot something in your refrigerator that you always take out"

I don't take pickles out that much but I thought they looked sickly and cool.

Refrigerator 1

Photofriday Challenge: "Shoot something in your refrigerator that you always take out"

Well, mold. I take that out more than anything else since I buy food but never really eat any.

This is a jar of moldy blackberry apple sauce. Yum.
