365 Photography Project Thirty-Eighth Post

Last week David was gone to a wedding back east, so Lauren and I cocooned in. I would say, 'Would you like to go somewhere/" And she would  say, "Not particularly.' So, mostly we didn't and it was swell. Still, stuff got done if not posted. Consequently, this is late. No big surprise there and I'll need to post twice this week to catch up.


Sunday June 26, 2011 Two pitchers
For Lauren: The larger pitcher, with the crackle-glaze is the first antique piece I ever bought, at a little store your 'auntie' Esther took me to in La Puente. I was 18 or 19. I found the smaller clear-glaze one years later and bought it only because it companioned so well with my original.



Monday June 27, 2011 I think a cool picture of California grass


Tuesday June 28, 2011 The History of English, a series of 32 half-hour lectures. Mr. Witherspoon did not like how we Americans were abusing the English language. If only he knew what was to come!! The man behind the words is Professor Seth Lerer, out of Stanford, a local gentleman!


Wednesday June 29, 2011 David getting ready to leave for Ohio.


Thursday June 30, 2011 After dropping David at the airport at 6:30am, Lauren and I went to a local coffee place, Almaden Roasting Company, to relax.


Friday July 1, 2011 We went to lunch at Dennys, that's us in the window.


Saturday July 2, 2011 heavy stuff is heavy at OSH. It turns out that this isn't the front-of-the-store side, so soon, I'm going to start taking my weekly photos from that side also OMG can you stand the excitement!!??!!

I love the message about the English language -- it makes me laugh thinking how far American English has gone in a little over 200 years.

I just imagine the poor Englishman listening to us speak now, or even his own countrymen, he'd be appalled :D

'Are you surprised?'
not even a little *g*

It's at the point where, when I take a shot like that, I imagine that you'll like at least that one :D

you keep me surprised, I'm never sure what you'll like, or what will catch your interest, but I always look forward to your thoughtful comments and you ask the best questions.

Ye gads! The chairs in that coffee shop look uncomfortable! So many restaurants pick such uncomfortable nightmares of chairs just because they look cute. I know it's to encourage people to get in and out, but honestly! :P

Cheap, good food is always a plus.

The grass shot was awesome! I always worry about snakes hanging out in overgrown foliage though. (Then again, I live in a state where two of the most deadliest snakes in the US reside so you can never be too careful!)

Mr. Witherspoon did not like how we Americans were abusing the English language.

Considering this quote is accredited as taking place not long after the US told Britain to go screw themselves, I'm not surprised he was peeved at our language.

'The chairs in that coffee shop look uncomfortable!'
and yet, people spend hours sitting in them. I see people studying, coffee groups meet there practically every morning, it is amazing, but the place is very well used. Plus the cushions are brand new, so...!!!

'Denny's = ♥'
agrees totally, Lauren and I have spent far too much time in various Dennys around the bay area, always cheap and good.

I have never seen a snake here, only frogs and lizards. In your situation, you're right, you never can be too careful. When we lived in San Diego when I was a kid, we had to concern ourselves with rattlers, so I am aware.

I just wonder how it would pain Mr. Witherspoon to see how much both sides of the Atlantic have abused the language since his day.
