There are times when right can not be made.
Petty injustices trail a trivial edge along the wall
of indifferent ineptitude.
Cords break, mechanics fail, great endeavors
leave a wreckage of humility in their wake.

Simple things become simple again.
Easy things bring ease.
Your chance to redeem yourself comes
and you can once again hold your head high.
There was this guy, a tough biker dude with an incredible heart of gold. Yeah, it’s a stereotype, but some people pull it off, and he was one.

First off, I apologize for the picture quality on a lot of these shots. When I took them, I was more interested in research than in how it would look. Especially in the museums I didn’t have the best lighting to work with.
1. Some of the historical outfits could be pretty elaborate. This was for the wife of an administrator. The administrator was almost as elaborate, the main difference being the beads across the face from the hat.
I’m a guest blogger! Actually, I did a bunch of guest blogs when Moving In first came out, but I haven’t been real active since. This time I’m talking about Icarus, his accident, and his accidents, if you know what I mean. 🙂 You can read all about him and see a new picture of him or two at Underneath The Shell.
In other news, I’ve once again gone from green grass to snow. Sigh. I don’t think this is quite what they meant by April showers.
Galen has been sick for three weeks now. I don’t know what happened, but it involves many antibiotics and a hospital stay. I went ahead and did Fiction Friday 55s the last two weeks, but I just don’t have it in me this week. I’m hoping for his full recovery soon.
