Pretty much a belt and suspenders (and beard and hair net and mask) on one of my site visits today. Lol!

My Dad still gets a tv guide. I think that's quaint. I spent many hours of my youth hunched over a bowl of cereal scanning through these for monster movies. :-)

@sotolf @0PT41N @tvass Bertie is getting up in age and his hips are getting sore after walks so he now gets to eat breakfast lying down. On shag carpet. Tough life. 😉

I made a Valentine's Day gift for my wife. It was either a macaroni and glue card or this. :-) And that was my last ditch freehand attempt at a heart. You gotta squint and use your imagination.

The cold temps and fluffy overnight snow makes it feel like someone dumped that fake movie set snow here. :-)

Well it took over a year before I noticed the scale on my speedometer isn't linear (and it was my wife who finally noticed). Apparently this is the case on a lot of VW's. You learn something new every day. :-). Excuse the dust and dog hair. It's been a long year. :-)

Very crisp visit to the park this morning. At least portrait mode knows who's important in this photo. :-)

Some pretty trees on the way to visit my Pa for coffee. No ice storm, just very cold (-20C) and moisture in the air I suppose.

Cooked some weekend bacon. Not touching it until the late risers are up is the challenge. Otherwise there will be nothing left except the smell of bacon. Which would be cruel. 😉

It sure was a chilly dog walk early this morning. Bertie loves this weather though. Right side is the moon through broad flurries.

@randynose here's a kick at the.... here's an attempt. ;-) First time I've really used my Wacom tablet with (up until now it's really been a and thing for me - other than marking up pdf drawings for work which sadly is 90% of what it's been used for).

Took my dog to the spa (my Dad's) after a trip to the park this morning. :-)

At least my wife has given me some objectives for my next grocery store visit. It can't be all cereal and Italian cookies I guess. :-)

Nice crisp morning walk at the park before warmer weather and rain arrives supposedly tomorrow. Added benefit of making Bertie more lazy and less of a demanding jerk this afternoon. 😉

Fancy utility knife. One of the gifts my wife gave me. Decided to have some fun with the 85mm lens. The Christmas tree provided such a nice bokeh background. Bertie is just relieved he is not the subject of yet another photo for once. :-)

I want to do more photography and other creative things this coming year. It's been a long drought for me in that respect.

Finally recharged my Canon 7D and put on the 50mm f1.8 lens. Took a similar shot with my Pixel 5 and cropped. Phone camera shots are suprisingly good these days, but sheesh, they're really still miles apart in some ways. I won't label them, I think you'll be able to tell which is which.
