Pictures of July

Instead of rounding up my leftover pictures, I was sorely tempted to write another entry about Chick-fil-A, but I don't think there's anything left on the internet that hasn't been said about it and I'm not feeling particularly articulate.

Instead, let's look at some pretty (or not) photographs from July that didn't make it into any blog entries:

1) Fainting Goats for Sale

This is taken through the windshield of Elizabeth's car when we were trying to find an estate sale that was way out in the middle of nowhere in South Knoxville. Tennessee is actually known for their fainting goats, so we weren't surprised to see some for sale. It was more that the spray painted sign pointing toward a dead end in the middle of the woods fairly screamed "horror movie".

2) Blind Melon

I wanted seedless watermelon at Kroger, but they only had see-less.

3) Rainy Florals

The neighbor directly above me has several hanging plants with large pink flowers, which tend to fall from her balcony onto my porch. I saw some in the rain, and was struck by how pretty the fallen blossoms were:

I much prefer them to the cigarettes that fall from the balcony above hers, but I often scoop up those cigarette butts in a dustpan, carry them upstairs, and dump them in front of that neighbor's door. I never do that with the flowers.

4) Mr. & Mr.

Target now carries gay marriage greeting cards:

mr. and mr.

Even in Tennessee.

There's hope for people yet.

I cannot believe you did not buy me a fainting goat. And I thought we were friends.

Target remains my favorite place ever.

I just know you already know about the "Presurfer" website... but just in case you don't, here's a link to his post on fainting goats:
