Vietnam Jungle X – VI

First off, though, a few wee pics of other things we found at an estate sale tomorrow, and may bid on a three foot black stone? seated Buddha? if the price is right — so beautiful and peaceful it is — ?

DSC_5485I’ve wanted a cake plate for the longest, and this happens to match my Great Aunt Nell’s china pattern, which I inherited, but that rarely comes out, that being said, this could hold piles of muffins and flowers and candles and cakes and … ? whee!

Ate two peaches last night from the orchard with my dinner cereal of Cheerios. I eat so little anymore, but I enjoy what I eat.

We ate at a place for late lunch veggie pizza, two slices each, called Tally Ho, in Potomac, which is a surreally wealthy area, where I won my prize for photography in June, and this gift certificate to Tally Ho — and we went to the estate sale on the way back

fingers crossed for the three foot two foot? Buddha — maybe for the studio this time. all I have (all?) is a four inch Buddha now —

images of Peter Gabriel’s Big Time video blowing up with fruit and stuff

who’s got a bigger Buddha? n stuff

so stupid really, but it is really beautiful
