I Get Misty


Charlie Thigpen has it figured out at The Garden Gallery at the Pepper Place.  He's found this great fan with a mister that is not only good for his outdoor garden plants,  but it cools off the grateful patrons.  If I didn't have a camera to keep dry, I'd be hogging it myself every Saturday morning.  This cute group was all about it!

Ella Fitzgerald croons Misty  just for you today!


Check out the Magic City Manifesto here.  A terrific B'ham blog.  We collided when I featured her here this week.  Small world, new blog friend!!

I guess they could say, "Play Misty for Me". This reminds me of the misters they have in Greece and elsewhere, too, at outdoor cafes to cool off patrons.

Good catch....and you can always put a plastic bag over your camera... :)

It was a pleasant way to pretend I wasnt melting .. get thee a lens hood and then stand there and cool off, camera down by your side out of a direct hit by the mist

Wonderful shot Virginia. I like the black and white. You are right Paris it is!

Seems too hot to start school already. I like the "wait until after Labor Day" tradition that has long faded everywhere.

Great action shot!

Johnny Mathis wasn't visiting B'ham, was he?

I was walking back to my office from a hearing late this morning. A maintenance guy had a hose pointing at some plants and was not very careful about his aim. I have to walk through some bounces spray that covered my face. It was delightful.

Hello again, Virginia. My sons have been bouldering for a couple of years now. They wear shoes that fit quite snugly, no socks, so that their toes and feet help them as much as their fingers and hands do. When they started, both of them realized that they had found something challenging to do that would build their core strength as well as elsewhere. I am amazed every time I go in the gym to watch them--sometimes there are people everywhere climbing on these man-made "boulders." The tags are color-coded routes, some much more difficult than others. At the beginning of each route there are two tags attached to a hold, sort of in an upside down V shape--the difficulty level is written on those two so you know if you're on an easier, beginner one, or on a much more difficult one. For me, they all appear totally impossible--I have little to no desire to climb up on anything because I am afraid of heights, for one thing, and I am only walking for exercise.
