An Eastern Shovel tree. A tree truck with a red plastic toy shovel stocked oddly out of it. It appears to be growing out of the truck. Green trees can be seen in the background.

I do wonder how this happened.

Realized that the most janky website I visit is YouTube. To penalize Firefox or combat ad blocking, I guess Google thinks it’s ok to slow the site down or simply break it.

Every now and then my Discovery radio will slip into, music.apple.com/us/playli… mode.

Starting a new little Python project. Step one, what’s the preferred packaging and virtual environment setup this week? Almost went with Ruby, just for this being long solved problem.

Found a tiny turtle friend. Baby Yellow-bellied turtle sitting on an opened hand. Vibrant green grass in the background.

Ended up watching the entire season of “Three Body Problem” yesterday. So good. 📺

Youngest had an outdoor piano recital today. Seems like a good #ADayInTheLife choice.

Just realized a weird pre-internet thing with me. I have had car insurance well before the internet was a thing, with the same agent from my hometown. This meant a phone call to do any insurance business. As much as I loath making a phone call, I find that I will call that agent before using the company’s web site for some things.

We were in a car accident April 30th. No injuries, but our car has been in the shop since then. 3+ months! I really don’t want to get another vehicle, but don’t think I can ever trust this car again.

Totally thought Hijack on ATV+ was a movie. It’s a series 🤦🏽‍♂️

Glad Silo in ATV+ was renewed for a second season. Great show, love the intensity.

These gulls know what’s up.

Three sea gulls sitting on top of a yellow sign. The words, “Voted World’s Best” are written on the sign in red lettering.

On vacation this week and giving the 3.0 Micro.blog client a spin. It’s come a long way and I think it’ll be my full time client now.

Distant image of four people standing in the surf of a beach. The water is blue and green with visible white foam. In the distance a fishing boat can be seen.

My governor…..

I look forward to the day democrats are so rare we have to hunt them with dogs

Flowertown festival this weekend and traffic is extra terrible.

Enjoying the new Hipstamatic more than I should. Lack of ads and the temporary nature of posts makes it a fun distraction, but I’ll probably grow tired of all the over processed photos.

Tiny blooms on our Pawpaw tree.

🎬 I realize I am kinda late to this, but finished watching “The Batman” last night and it’s a great movie hiding in a way too long ok movie. I’d love to see about an hour edited out of it.

I guess @manton can remove Twitter crossposting now.

Find someone pushing for “favorites/likes”, and you’ve likely found someone building an audience. Not someone looking for meaningful engagement.
