Default Evidence

It seems someone has left a mess on the kitchen table!

After they did that, they left crumbs all over the front of my computer desk, and a dirty napkin. Wait a tic, what are those strange little plastic cylinders there? :lol:

Default Texture

I love the texture and hue of the cutting board - an excellent prop.

I do not recognize the containers.

We have a few of those around. My wife insists on stuffing the contents of those cylinders into her camera. I on the other hand just use them as a storage container.

But what, pray tell, is that black rocky thing? Did someone give you coal for Christmas?

I had one of those once. It is a fossilzed prune :lol: As to the cylinder things, if you people were as old as dirt, like me, you would know that people once wrote strange messages, with a paint called ink, and sent them to far away places, like Cleveland, carried by strange creatures called postal workers. It sometimes took days for it to arrive. This is an acient artifact called FILM. It was used to capture the spirit of people and make them slaves to the photo developers. :lol:

Paint? Ink? Film? You're confusing me!

Actually, I'm old enough to remember punch cards, terminals, accustic modems...

Now when my son and daughter grow up, they're going to tell their friends, "You wouldn't believe it, but my dad had to store things on a flat circle. He called it a CD!" and... "His camera used a square plastic thing called a SD card and it only had room for about 512 images."

You gave me a good laugh and reminded me of the late Bernard Moitessier writings in The Long Way. He talked about the machine people and how machines make man build other machines to destroy nature. Unless you have dreams of ocean voyaging to distant shores, you would not have heard of Moitessier.

Thank you,

Fair Winds & Following Seas,

Actually I believe that is a piece of some sort of volcanic rock, but not coal. I have certain people around my house of a science teacher persuasion, and things like that get left everywhere!
