Weekend Threesome – 1/16/22

It’s time for The Nest’s Weekend Threesome, three short tidbits from my week that you could have lived without knowing, but why would you want to?

Yeah, that might send shudders down your spine if you live in the deep south… but that’s hardly enough to qualify as our first snowfall of the season.  That photo’s from Saturday morning, and as I type this three hours later, it doesn’t look any whiter outside.  The rain didn’t change over anywhere near as early as was forecasted, and with the ground still warm, what snow did fall this morning didn’t stick much.  I’m sure the squirrels appreciated not having to go out barefoot in the snow, but you were probably looking forward to more snow-squirrel pics, and I’m afraid I’ll have to disappoint you…

Kudos to the lady working the deli at the next-town-over Mecca I get my prescriptions filled at (No, not for mind altering drugs, as you might expect).  I picked up food for me and Mom to have for lunch Wednesday, and I always get some potato wedges because they are food of the gods if done right.  I asked for a pound of them, and on the very first try, the scale read “1.000 pounds” exactly!  We were both impressed with the accomplishment, which was one of those “couldn’t do it again if you tried” kind of moments…

You have to buy the whole dog at the Shelf deli…

And finally on this very short edition of the Threesome….

We have a few fire hydrants in town that were painted in some artsy way a few years ago in an effort to (cough, hack) brighten up the city.  Here’s one by the city park…

I’m not exactly sure if the design has any kind of meaning…… but, eh, I guess it’s art.

    That’s about what we’re getting here today!

  2. Psychedelic mushroom fire plug? You can kinda see that if you squint…

  3. Glad you were able to dodge a snow bullet. I have to admit, I’m not sure about the Dalmatian fire plug. Guess this is why that saying of “art is in the eyes of the beholder” rings true.

    Those fire hydrants are all very well as long as the fire department recognises them for what they are in an emergency… “checking the book now, chief… we’re looking for one disguised as a gnome…”

    • That would be a fun project to paint them all camouflage! I’ll bet a really good 3-D painter could make a fire hydrant totally blend in with its surroundings. It may fool pedestrians and the fire department…. but I’ll bet it wouldn’t fool a dog.

  5. Well we had a BIT more snow than that…….AND finished the snow event off with several hours of sleet so I’m sure it will be “interesting” on the driveway and street today. About the only thing I can say about that fire hydrant is it would be TOUGH to miss – maybe that’s a good thing??

    • That teensy bit of snow was already gone that evening. It was snowing pretty good when I went to work last night…. but still nothing but some white dust. I think someone turned the heat up down in Heck and its making the ground too warm…

    I wouldn’t call Arizona in the “deep south”.
