Photo day!

One thing I failed to mention yesterday about the castellers, it isn't a sport for people with personal space issues. Just saying.

Now I am not exactly a fashionista to say the least, but somehow the stroller/smoking combo mixed in with the long knitted hoody, leggings and sl*t boots is not a look I would aim for.

Just saying.

Sorry for the blurred photos.


Mullet, big puffy mullet that makes you look like your from the movie Aliens, or you've got Lord Voldemort stashed on the back of your head and -my personal favourite - dreads!

A dread-voldemort mullet!

Don't see that every day.

Onto prettier topics.  Roses from the garden.  They smell really nice too.

And there are lots and lots of them.

This is a rather random post, but I have a number of photos I wanted to bang up...all somewhat unrelated.

In the mountains a few days ago I noticed these mushrooms emerging.  At first they looked like they were planning on being fairly normal mushrooms, then today they looked like this!  Weird mushroom-y hatchlings emerging.

Nearby was a fully inflated one.

Think their edible?

Me neither.

PS, a warning, the photo after this one, while not gory, might make you kind of squirm.

Just saying.

Youngest today managed to stand on a tack.  When I have done this, it just sort of hung on there by a quarter of a millimeter.  Youngest is much more accomplished.

Love having a 24 hour fully free medical center less than a five minute walk away.


I'da taken it out myself, but she really didn't want me to. She figured they might use some of that anaesthesia stuff, you know.

Seemed reasonable to me.

Not a drop of blood and it didn't hurt that much, I'm told.

Does kinda make your toes curl up to think about it though, doesn't it.

and Mom, she's just fine.

Owww! Gah! The tack is even worse than the mushroom. Oh, the price we pay to go barefoot. Hope she is getting lots of sympathy for her bravery and gimpiness.

I think there’s a tie for the most disturbing photo – between the mullet, the emerging mushrooms and that tack in the foot!

The Bodhi Chicklet said...

What a shmorgasbord of delight here! Not sure which is my favorite. Just saying.

JG, by and large, yes. It was grosser in concept than fact, but it hurts and she has to be pretty careful with it. She was incredibly brave through it all, but had a little weep later when she got home.

Beth, sorry about that. Saving up all the weirdness for one go.

Bodhi, aim to please, or gross out, not sure which.

Hula Girl at Heart said...

Ouch!!!! That looks painful.

Oh, and those boots were horrid.

oreneta said...

Hula, hurt less than I would have thought. Fleshy bit of our bodies I guess....and there are some TERRIBLE boots here, always worn over the pants. Gag.
