Cactus Monday-Playing with WC IV



My new scanner thing is here, but it's not hooked up yet, so photo will do for this week. I spent some time trying to find a NOT multi use machine-because if one thing (in this case an ink door) goes missing on these things, nothing will work. I never print, I just wanted a scanner. But the good news is you can get a scanner printer for much less than the price of the first scanner I ever bought. Progress.

My first scanner was a sheet fed HP, my brother bought it for me for a Graduation Present from Grad school-it was probably the biggest (price wise) present I ever got in my life for something like that. I finally let it go after it had been out of service and replaced by a flatbed with higher resolution, but oh how I loved that scanner!

My brother still has (in some form) pieces of my original computer-probably just the case at this point. I think it had something like 10K of memory-yes, K, not G.

This has little to do with cactus, other than the picture, so I'll quite rambling and post.

Ok-Graduation Present from Grad school-is someone feeling a bit insecure today? LOL. I'm always torn between just fixing it, or pointing out my flaws. Today I will keep my skirt lifted.

In a minute I'm going to TAKE A SHOWER....and later I will Feed The Dogs.

Delightful "Tres Amigos" sketch. I like the cute animal. It is amazing that in the desert, little rodents can move spiny pieces of cactus to barricade the entrance to their dens.

Nice effort Debra..even I couldn't but notice the small animal..I think it adds up to the pic.

Happy Cactus Monday!!!

I love the mouse...I love mice in general. And the flower reminds me of a trillium which I miss seeing. So I guess this is a happy sketch for me to be seeing!!

I was wondering if Oliver pooped on the cactus though? That little bit of yellow looks suspicious!

Oh Mr. Biiiiiird???? What did you do?
:D

Debra Kay said...

LOL-Mr. Bird Poop is dark green and white-birds like snakes, poop and pee through the same outlet. See what things you can learn here?
