iPhone Treasures...

An Observer's Guide to Random Photos on Barebonsey's iPhone.  

A dome in St. Peter's Cathedral.  Have you ever tried to paint a ceiling in your home and snapped your head clear off your neck in the process? Imagine trying to paint fingers on a hand... on a ceiling a few hundred feet from the ground. Actually, from that distance, any artwork could rival Michelangelo's.  Is that a cherub with wings or a pineapple talking on a cell phone? Who really knows?

This picture screams for explanation.  While out shopping with my sister and friend (Krintee Macaroni), I saw this polyester/silk blend shirt labeled XXXL with my name written all over it.  I told Krintee that I had found the perfect blouse to wear in my dad's wedding and had her fooled well up until the floodgates of laughter sprung a leak.  Then, in true form, Laura proceeded to turn the hem into a doo rag for no reason under the sun other than she is one of the coolest people I know. 

Actually, this picture about sums my whole childhood with Laura.  Confusing, and wee bit strange.
Dean Clampett on moving day. 
Meet Newt.  He is the newest addition to our equine program.  He is 24 inches tall and is a complete ladies man.   
Remember summertime in your backyard?  A little bit of green grass and a little bit of C.S Lewis? 
Carly and Aunt Poo having a tickle-war. 

Pictured here are quite possibly the coolest glass bottles of water you will ever see. Unfortunately, a rapid change of temperature in my car caused them all to explode and rot my floor of my trunk.  Most excellent.
Don't you hate it when you are doing your boy-toys laundry and a packet of white powder slips out of his hoodie?  Don't you also loathe sitting for hours agonizing about how you were going to bring up his apparent and hidden cocaine addiction with him at lunch?  Even worse, don't you hate it when he looks confused, rubs his temples in contemplation, squints and then smiles, pats you on the head and excuses himself to go to the convenience store to buy another packet of Goody's Extra Strength Headache Powder?   *sigh* Me too.  
This is a picture I drew for mom when she was in the hospital.  In case you are wondering, it's Bentley Eugene of Troy.  And not far off from real life I might add. 
Here is the sole survivor of my gardening efforts this spring.   I should have this pepper tested to find out how plants can grow in completely hostile, unkempt, and neglectful conditions. 


  1. "Strange?" "Strange?!" "Confusing?!" I believe the word you are looking for is "super-fun."

  2. Pinapple with cell. That was his staple.


  3. You have a blog, Joe? I'm going RIGHT over.

  4. It's been collecting cyber-dust for over a year bus yes. Make note of it's profound content and literary prowess...

  5. Hello. I googled 'Rilke border protect salute' to find the quote and it brought me here (or rather, an older post on here), and I saw you read Parker Palmer too, who I love (in a fairly appropriate authory kind of way) and so, if it's ok with you, I'm going to bookmark your blog.
    And if you'd like to check out mine it's
    Have a good day, Emma

  6. Hi Emma,
