Damn Wow Hey

Damn, it was cold. We have no snow on the ground yet, but the wind was nasty.

Wow, it was sunny. We had a blue-sky day Alberta would be proud of.

Hey, it was, on balance, pretty cheery as I waited in a parking lot for two hours for a dental surgeon to release my covivant. I saw yellow everywhere.

    Goodness! Couldn’t you go home and wait for a call to pick him up?

      Marion – Well, they kinda like you to wait on-site. Indeed, they pretty much insist. If it weren’t a 20-minute drive and if they could better predict their finishing time, they might follow a different protocol.

    I tried to post this but your website said it was a duplicate comment.
    So I’m adding this at the beginning to fool it.

    And there’s the original. That wasn’t there before. Oh well now I’m a spammer.

  4. Sympathy to your covivant. And kudos for finding so much cheer in a chilling situation.

      Laurna – I will pass along your sympathies. Now that I can knit I find it’s not too terrible to be stuck somewhere for a while.

  5. Wow! You made very good use of your time! I love your shots.

      Judith – Hey! 🙂 Many thanks. A shopping-mall maintenance guy asked me why I was taking photos of signs and such. “Did you have a concern?” Um, no, just taking photos of yellow. He laughed. Thank goodness.

    It’s always good to have a back-up CURIOSITY job to do when boredom threatens. Very zen.

      Barbara – Yes. And this is why phone-cameras are so wonderful. I often wouldn’t have my good camera with me; I usually remember my phone.
