The Watering Hole: April 16 — Finding Oregon

From the video caption:

Finding Oregon is the compilation of six months of timelapse photography across the state of Oregon, punctuated by a 1600 mile road trip in September. We’ve filmed the Columbia River Gorge, Mt Hood, Mt Jefferson, the Southwestern Coast, the Alvord Desert, Leslie Gulch, Blue Mountains, Crater Lake, Eagle Cap Wilderness, Deschutes River, and more. We’re proud to have touched all four corners of the state; however Oregon is the kind of place that the more you see, the more places there are to still discover.

Any questions about why I love Oregon so much?  I love everything about Oregon — except camping in the snow.  That’s just nutso.  ;)

Really, is the GOP fooling anyone?

What am I saying?  Of course, they’re fooling the fools who continually and foolishly vote for those fools.

It literally does not matter what the GOP says or does, as long as there is an “R” behind the name, the drones will vote for it — usually against their own needs and interests.

I don’t know about anyone else, but I’m done with trying to enlighten this type of fool.  I won’t even correct their stupid spewings.  Why waste my time and raise my blood pressure?

Like my Mom used to say, “They’d complain if they were hanged with a new rope.”  *spit*

The Watering Hole: April 2 — Spring has sprung

Photo by Zooey

I kind of feel bad about being so relieved that it’s finally Spring, since we basically had a six month Fall in this area.  I think it’s the browns and grays that get to me after a while.

When I rented this apartment in February, I was SO excited to see daffodil shoots sticking out of the ground, in the planter boxes in front.  They’re blooming now, and just looking at them makes me smile.  :-)

I took this picture of one of the first buds on the tree across the driveway.  I think it might be an apple blossom, but I’m not sure.  I don’t want to ask the landlady, because I want it to be a surprise.

I know, I’m a friggin’ weirdo.  Tell me something I don’t already know!

I’ve been pretty much gone from TheZoo for a few months, but I’m working my way back.  Just finally starting to remember that I have something to say now and then, and there might be a few people out here that might like to hear it.

This is our daily open thread — Go for it, all y’all.
