Chores and shutterbuggery.

Saturday morning and early afternoon I did lawn chores. In fairly rapid order I managed to mow the lawns, feed the lawns, weed the lawns (Oh Round-Up, you are my friend) and seed the lawns. I also did a long-overdue cut back of all the rose bushes in preparation for winter. It's funny, really: I don't know the first thing about caring for rose bushes but I must be doing something right. How do I know? Because two of the three have been growing like something from an anime series, with limbs over 8 feet long. They were all over the front lawn and climbing up the windows to the eaves. Crazy! Next year maybe I'll be able to get a trellis installed for them to climb instead of using the windows as leverage.

I finished up my yard work and took a shower before settling in for a well-deserved Cold Beverage. At around 1530 lady_curmudgeon and I left for Dave & Busters, where we met up with captain18, spoothbrush, neuracnu, jdm314, rakko78 and other folk. We drank, we ate food, we played games, we ate dessert and I took about seven hundred and thirty-five pictures. Then Curmudgeon and I drove home, but not before making a stop by the Bolingbrook Freedom Fountain where I took four hundred more pictures.

I hear that some of you are asking for thumbnails from the galleries I linked to above. Well, your wish is my command...

and I'd be remiss if I didn't include a few photos from the fountain....

In total I shot more than 1200 frames yesterday. I'd like to thank gatcat and rainingmeat for their kind words about my first round of posted photographs. The two of you set a very high bar that I'm striving to meet while I (re-)learn from you both. I'd also like to thank all my friends yesterday for having the patience not to smack me for taking shots of any and everything around them.
