I really don't have much for you this week. It was either raining or hot and humid all week. That's so not my favorite kind of weather. I prefer highs in the low 70s! Here are some random thoughts on the week and stuff:
- Two different bugs seem to be going around at work -- a stomach bug and a coughing bug. I don't want either one. People need to stop breathing on me.
- For the most part, I can't even tell I have a neighbor where the noisy screaming thumping family lived. Good. Hopefully he feels the same about me.
- I filled out the latest NJ Transit customer service survey. I complained about all the riff-raff hanging out, drinking and such at the Plainfield Train Station as well as the horrid condition of the tunnel and elevators. I'm sure they'll listen to me. Right?
- I don't like to sweat. Wah.
- I think I need a nap.
I didn't realize my camera was in a bizarre mode when I shot these berries at the Plainfield Train Station. But I kind of like how it turned out.
|A posing pigeon|
This is an adolescent pigeon who was a roly-poly fluff ball just a few weeks ago at the Bridgewater Train Station.
These were atop the mail boxes in my apartment building one day, apparently for anyone wanted to take them. The only brand name I've seen before is the Del Monte. I have my own canned goods and would be more likely to do this than to take them. But, I'm sure someone can use them, off brands or not.
|In the pink|
This bike had been chained to the tree in Bridgewater for almost two months. As I work such bizarre hours, I'm pretty sure no one else's schedule would match mine. The day after I finally decided to take this photo of it, it vanished. Either its owner returned after a jail stay (whatever) or someone else noticed it had been abandoned for so long. It has not returned.
Not only are they working on the bridges on either side of the Plainfield Train Station, they're fixing all the masonry issues and doing track work. Oy.
|Each in his own little world|
Between cell phones, coffee and daydreaming ... as seen on the corner of Watchung and North Avenue in Plainfield.
|The air quality one day was so bad ...|
... that a lamp post at the Plainfield Train Station needed a respirator face mask! (Or, one of the workmen parked it there. I prefer to think the former!)
|The guy on the left just sat down|
|What the heck sat beside me?|
|A panting European Starling|
The heat and humidity (and poor air quality) was getting to him, too. But his colors were really showing!
|Dig those pants|
I've seen quite a few guys with pants like these. I guess it's a new fad. They look rather uncomfortable to me unless they're stretchy material.
|Don't ruffle my feathers!|
|Vincent in a box|
This is his new scratcher box. He loves it.
