(Reading Time: 2 minutes)

It’s been a minute since the blog was updated, and I’m totally guilty for the long delay. As some of you know, I am presently unemployed and doing everything I can to make ends meet. Unfortunately, the blog was a minor casualty of the unemployment but I’ve been gradually getting myself back into a position where I could write once more.

That being said, here’s a few things of interest from the weekend:

There are some really neat documentaries out there…

I’ve been on a documentary kick of late. A couple weeks ago I snagged a copy of Ron Howard’s “Pavarotti”. More recently, over the weekend, I watched Berry Gordy’s “Hitsville: The Making of Motown” and Adam Nimoy’s “For the Love of Spock”, all of which will get reviewed here in due time. Let’s just say that these are some very interesting documentaries that I didn’t know existed and I think they’re really worth checking out if you are into such things.

Sometimes the best pictures are where you least expect them…

Friday and Saturday were very wet days in Nashville. On Saturday, especially, we got off and on heavy downpours. As I was heading home from some freelance work on Saturday (more on that another time), I glanced out my window and saw this shot down a side street…

Taken overlooking I-440 facing downtown Nashville with my Galaxy Note 10.

I had to do some scouting to see if I could find a better vantage but ultimately decided that this was the best shot. Since I now carry my camera gear everywhere, I headed back to the spot, set up the camera and tripod, and snapped a bunch of pictures before more rain moved in. I’m developing the camera pics now, but thought you’d enjoy this pic taken with my cell phone…

Cats can be great at telling you not to work…

She’s trying to be coy, acting like she doesn’t want my attention while keeping me from working…

Cats are amazing creatures and show their affections in their own unique ways. Working on another side gig Saturday night, I was interrupted by this scene. Buttercup was telling me that there were more important things than scanning comic books into the database to sell… eventually she did settle into my lap for a bit of attention and affection.

Fortunately, today, she’s laying in her box taking a half-nap while keeping an eye on me to make sure I don’t write anything bad about her…

“My eyes may be closed but my ears are still paying attention… if you drop a treat, I’ll know!”
