Pixels? We don't need no steenkin' pixels.

My shadow don't take kindly to fools, as you can see. I don't think it likes me all that much either. There may or may not be a connection there. At night, what appears so obvious during the day is not so cut n' dry.

This is a representation of the dangerous inner shadows that lurk in my innerds.
Unfortunately I got no pics of any of them.

BTW, does my shadow make me look fat?

Fat? No. But if I didn't know better, I woulda thought that was Clint Eastwood.

One thing about shadows - they effectively hide the eye patch.

Hi Julie:

Swell. :^)

Hey DoJo:

Or an aye! Patch. :^)

Incidently, I somehow managed to contract a bad cold (are there any other kind?) which has worse than cold type of consequences for me so your prayers will be greatly appreciated.

I haven't had one for over ten years, thankfully.
I almost forgot what it felt like...almost.
I'm also thankful it's been so long since I had one.

Beam me up, Snotty. Blech. :^)

I understand. We certainly will be praying for you.

As for our shadows, they are persistent -- in the light, an interesting concept.

Thanks Mushroom!

Thursday n' Friday were purty bad but by Friday night I was breathing better, and today the coughing has subsided significantly.
And my headache (coughing/sinus type) is gone, thank God!

It was a good fight but one I won't miss anytime soon. LOL.

Thanks all for your prayers! I'm very glad not to be spending my weekend at the VA! :^)

Hi Joan!

Thank you! :^)
