Off Topic: That Was the Week It Was - July 30, 2017

Good morning! Since it's a Sunday morning, this is my weekly off television topic post taking a look at the week gone by in both words and photographs I've taken along the way. This weekly post is done year in, year out. Big Brother, the main draw for so many of you, only lasts about three months -- although sometimes it seems to be a lifetime. If you're here solely for the BB posts, please feel free to skip this post. You can find my latest BB19 posts by using this link.

I really don't have much for you this week. I spent the week working, blogging Big Brother shows and live feeds, slept when I could and entertained a certain cat named Vincent. I'm tired. 

The weather wasn't so bad this week here in the NJ/NYC Greater Metro Area -- we had some glorious temperature days during which it only got into the mid-70s! Sure, the beach crowd might not like that, but I love it! It's been nice to have my windows open and the air conditioner off.

Other than flowers, I really didn't get much in the way of photos this week.  Clicking on an image will open a larger version ...

Rose of Sharon

Pretty pinks on Berckman Street

Little crumbsnatcher!


Also on Berckman Street in Plainfield

I've got the blues

I messed with the colors a bit

I see dead people

When I got on the train yesterday to head to work, this person gave a greeting nod and smile. I returned the nod and smile. He was in drag, a red dress, lipstick and make-up,  and I really didn't look too closely, believing him to be a woman at my quick glance. However, this shot between the seats reveals quite the stubble. It must have been some Friday night in Manhattan! 

Using the flash on my camera

I so love these flowers!

Scavenging dude

Gull on guard duty

Flower of an Hour starting to close up

The merry marigold

Glories greeting the morning

Morning glories continue to adorn the fence in back of my apartment building.

Rosy red, but not a rose!

Nature is art

Even spores of plants past, ready to blow away in the wind, are truly masterpieces.

There must be a story behind this.

I noticed these two pieces of jewelry about ten feet apart and placed them together for this shot. This is at the eastbound side of the Bridgewater Train Station. Occasionally one piece of some sort of jewelry might be lost there. But I've never seen two. Hmm. There must be some story behind this. The next time I passed through, both were gone.

Tiny flowers

It doesn't prohibit dumping small vehicles

Vincent being ever vigilant

He caught and killed a mouse this past week. He was on alert all day waiting for it, apparently hearing it hours before it dared show its face.

Happy Sunday!

LOL @ "I see dead people". That cracks me up.
Vincent sure looks awfully pretty for a killer dude. :)
Have a good week,
