  1. So there is a ‘positive’ outcome from your jump!
    Funny, eh, how things prioritize themselves.
    Love that surreal photo…..very sci-fi looking.

    1. Jim:
      My mood is better and I know never to convince myself to do that jump again. Two positive outcomes. Oh, and my hand is now very colorful (black, blue, purple, green)… so THREE positive(?) outcomes. I had come off the beach and looked back from the paseo. Glad I caught that shot when I did. The glow from the leaves and their uniforms in that sunrise glare. Wow.

    1. anne marie:
      They really do take great care of the beach and the city. But that scene in that light was kind of mystical.

  2. Good to hear you are feeling better. That is a tall wall, makes my feet hurt just thinking about it. A friend once said, “how can I be overdrawn, I still have checks left.”

    1. David:
      I sent Joan a card with that sentiment at that time! I love it. Yeah, that is a tall wall. I clearly was not thinking straight (or at all).

      1. Raybeard:
        Certainly not the cats. Although they’re so much less shallow than all that. They’d take attention over gifts any day.

    1. Debra:
      They’ve already got 3 kitty condos and enough toys for a cat shelter. They’re happy with attention and nothing more… other than treats and someone to play with the toys with them… and, OK, something new to keep things interesting. I’m off to pet supply with my 60 euros.

  3. Glad you’re out of your depression, Scoot. I love that wall picture of SG. When it comes to money, y’all seem to roll the way we do. Be afraid. Be very afraid 🙂 I now have that Wynonna song in my head. It’s a good thing I like that one.
    “When you hit rock bottom there’s just one way to go, straight up or sideways.” Once again, rambling mode.

    1. Deedles:
      I don’t know that Wynona song. So, I’ll be off momentarily to check it out. SG is 30 pounds lighter since that wall picture. He still couldn’t pull himself up, but at least someone (not me) could easily give him a boost.

    1. Mistress Maddie:
      I wouldn’t want SG to get sick of me. The cats, on the other hand, would be perfectly happy if neither one of us ever left the house.

  4. Well, I’m glad the shock of your jump had a fringe benefit if it’s made you feel better psychologically. Maybe you needed the excitement of a challenge! I love that photo of the workers on the beach. It IS kind of surreal.

    1. Steve:
      I’ll have to find safer challenges in future. What amazes me is that I jumped off a curb the other day, landing on my left feet, and nearly howled (and nearly fell over). You’d think I might have remembered that when I looked at the wall.

    1. Mary:
      I can’t believe I actually made (well attempted to make) that jump. It had to have been a brain fart.

    1. Wilma:
      I stared at that picture of SG from last year and wondered the same thing. 30 pounds lighter. At least he wouldn’t be dumb enough to stand on the wall and jump down… even when he was 12. I think Dudo was saying: I’m resting. You and your camera need to find somewhere else to be.

  5. Well you do have a lot of adventures, as my doctor once said to me, to my horror I might ad, You are not 20 anymore. Be well and enjoy the beach and your walks.

      1. Oh,no medical professional are just giving an opinion to shake us up a bit. LOL!!!!! Yep I know what you mean. I got that from my dentist also. Not funny.

    1. Nick:
      I went over that entire post a couple of times yesterday. We sure do miss you!
