Open thread - Tuesday

(Please click on the photos to see them in full glory)

Photographers have been exploring the beauty of different textures for a long time. Ripley in CT has a particularly good eye for spotting these contrasts. Thank you for this beautiful photo, Ripley.


Ripley sent me a sister photo of the previous one and I think they go very well together.


Please don't imagine for a minute that I don't have a sense of humour. I was sent this joke today (couldn't link the sender to a commenter, but thank you for the laugh, whoever you are):

I bought a new Chevy Avalanche and returned to the dealer yesterday because I couldn't get the radio to work.

The salesman explained that the radio was voice activated.

'Nelson,' the salesman said to the radio. The radio replied, 'Ricky or Willie?'

'Willie!' he continued and 'On The Road Again' Came from the speakers.

Then he said, 'Ray Charles!', and in an instant ' Georgia On My Mind' replaced Willie Nelson.

I drove away happy, and for the next few days, Every time I'd say, 'Beethoven,'

I'd get beautiful classical music, and if I said, 'Beatles,' I'd get one of their awesome songs.

Yesterday, some guy ran a red light and nearly creamed my new truck, but I swerved in time to avoid him.

I yelled, 'Ass Hole!'

Immediately the radio responded with, "Which one, Rush Limbaugh, Glen Beck, or Sarah Palin?"

Damn I love this truck..............................................
