Jolly Roger in the Desert

Today’s photo is of one of my neighbors … flying a Jolly Roger.  What???????  I’ve noticed it before and always wondered why they fly it.  Could it be that it’s

  • a conversation piece?
  • their ancestors were really pirates?
  • they’re really pirates (aaarrghhhh)?
  • they’re personal friends with Johnny Depp?

I think I’ll remember to ask the next time I see them. Click the image to enlarge it.  I’m trying to keep file size down these days to accommodate some of my email followers.  Namaste.

I touched this up a bit to give it that old effect. Pirates are old, aren't they?

Drop Your Pants Here


When we lived in Ventura, CA (sure miss that place), we were always going to the local craft fairs down by the beach.  Sure miss that place.  Did I say that already?

I remember specifically buying this sign on a beautiful, sunny, warm day and it has traveled with us to each place we’ve lived since then.  No matter where the laundry room is, DROP YOUR PANTS HERE hangs over it and has continued to be quite a conversation piece.

Fortunately, no one has taken the message literally. Ok, guess I’d better get back to that laundry, because as we all know, it doesn’t get done by itself.

Why doesn’t someone invent a machine that will wash, dry, fold and/or iron the clothes, then put them away?  Maybe it has been invented . . . Robo-Maid.  Where is she when I need her?
