T-Shirt Wisdom Wednesday (2305)

T-Shirt Wisdom has moved to Wednesday. Hump day just felt more natural for this bi-weekly feature. I mean doesn’t everyone need a chuckle to get over that hump! The concept is still the same, I will post a graphic that is funny, poignant, witty, honest, crude, toothsome, with bite, or just plain old ridiculous. Some I’ll have plagiarized directly from a chest near you. Others may not have been spotted in the wild but they probably should be out there.

Time keeps slippin’, slippin’… (literally as in one day later!) It’s hard to argue with the logic in this one.

Suggestions are always welcome. If you come across something you think is worthy of being pasted across someone’s chest and paraded around publicly jot it down and send me a message. If it makes the cut I will whip up a graphic design template and use it in a future post. Any suggestions used will include a shout-out and link to your blog on the week it posts.

T-Shirt Wisdom Tuesday (2303)

Welcome to T-Shirt Wisdom Tuesday for January 17th, 2023. It’s exactly what it sounds like. Every other Tuesday (bi-weekly) I will post a graphic that is funny, poignant, witty, honest, crude, toothsome, with bite, or just plain old ridiculous. Some I’ll have seen on t-shirts in the wild while others probably should have been.

Today’s pearl of wisdom sums up just about every work meeting I’ve ever attended!

Big Colourful Sky

This was an attempt to capture the big colourful sunset sky as I drove my son to his Karate class. I know phones and driving are a no-no but how could one resist that colour.

Equipment: Google Pixel 7 Pro, Rear Camera.
Settings: 6.81mm | 1/247 sec. at ƒ/1.9 | ISO486.

The Job Interview

The Job Interview

Marc eyed the empty spot, but parking enforcement circled like a vulture sensing his desperation, waiting to swoop in and take whatever remained the moment his broke-ass pulled in.

He’d spent his last two and a quarter to acquire the morning coffee needed to calm his anxiety and provide the jolt of courage he needed to survive a 10:00am job interview; none of which would matter in six minutes.

As he pulled around the block again he could feel his lips curl, as luck would have it the spot was still empty and the pesky meter maid was nowhere in sight.

His right side signals flashed as he pulled past the spot, slipped the stick to reverse and began working the vehicle into the vacant space.

He was forced to slam on the brakes as he watched a convoluted movie scene unfold in his rearview; another car barged into his spot, front-end first, no signals, and horn blaring into the morning air like a divine “fuck you” screaming at him from the heavens.


Marc stepped through the storefront door at 13 minutes past ten, his interrogator, the same monster in high heels who had jumped from the demon vehicle and flipped him the bird stood at the front counter tapping her clipboard in annoyance as she waited for him to arrive.

Abandoned

The above photos were taken near a storm management pond in Northwest Waterloo. The unnamed area is a small oasis of engineered nature tucked into the suburban landscape that cradles it.

As I walked the trail with my camera the signs of abandonment were evident. The milkweed seeds have long flown, mature enough to leave their summer womb behind. An empty nest that sheltered a new generation once hidden in the dense foliage now barren and exposed. The small white seed globes are all that remain where the flowers of a Canadian Horseweed plant once bloomed, its remaining leaves black and shrivelled from an early frost.

The chlorophyll-laden hues of summer and the fiery shades of early autumn have long since faded, replaced by muted tones and subdued colour as this place waits for the snowy white of winter’s grip. For now, there is still plenty of beauty to be found in that which has been left behind and abandoned.

Images were captured in November 2022, in Northwestern Waterloo, Ontario.

T-Shirt Wisdom Tuesday (2246)

Welcome to a special Remembrance Day edition of T-Shirt Wisdom Tuesday.

Today marks the day hostilities officially ceased and World War I came to an end. In Canada and many commonwealth nations, November 11th is known as Remembrance Day. A solemn holiday to remember the brave men and women who gave their lives in the Great Wars and other armed conflicts to preserve the freedoms we take for granted every day. It is customary to observe a moment of silence at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, the date and time the armistice treaty officially came into effect to honour our fallen soldiers.

Now more than ever we must remember the reasons these brave individuals sacrificed everything and find the resolve to build bridges to strengthen our democracies and preserve our way of life.

While out and about one afternoon I saw an individual wearing a T-Shirt with an image on it. I have recreated it here to share.

Lest we forget.
