I lost my internet connection Friday morning and just got it back yesterday. My splitter shorts out.

  1. The buzzards were circling you because you didn't have an internet connection? Now that's nature adapting!

  2. You were near death from internet withdrawal and the buzzards were circling! I am so glad it came back when it did.

    HEy, while you were out, I wrote a short and posted it on, The Grownups Wanted Us Dead.

  6. Those turkey buzzards are very large. We saw one once in a hospital driveway. I wish my camera was ready to shoot a picture. Oh, well...

  8. Great anology photographically-wise.

    Buzzards after the near-death of computer and/or computer user. Nice touch. Very original.

  9. Not sure how you survived that long without the net. I know I get really jittery after a few hours. Probably why I have a phone with internet. :)

  10. I love the way you captured the bird in the lower right just as it was landing.

  11. You know what they say: It's better for your splitter to short than your shorts to split.

  18. Hi Dragonstar: I enjoy visiting you. I'm cheating and reading at work. Ssshhhh! Don't tell. I'm going to buy a new splitter. If that doesn't work, we'll rewire.

  19. Very cool picture! I do love a good vulture sighting... just hope their tree isn't in your front yard. (pretty gross, given what they eat) Sorry about your interet not working - that is HORRIBLE!

  20. I'm sure this computer "flu" contagious and everyone caught it from me.
    I suggest you hold your breath when you visit my place.
    Those aren't buzzards...they're such very large vampire bats.
