People shedding tears over political elections is pathetic.

Those raccoons look like the empty suet cage outside my office window last night. There's a fat blueberry suet in it right now so it should be Party Central tonight. I can hardly wait. Gets exiting out here in the hinters after the sun goes down. Most people think this stuff is boring, but it's life sized and won't fit on a 4" handheld screen and we wouldn't have it any other way.

Brethren and Sistern, please Google, Gerard Van
der Leun's photographs, and click on the Flikr collection of his 6000+ photos.
The pictures, frozen moments in time, are there for our thawing back to life.

Thawing the photo of dog, man and moon:

Man looks lovingly at dog,
Dog muses at the moon,
Moon reflects the unseen Sun
In silent grace, thru shades of
Black and White.
