Something

To those wondering about my well-being, thanks & I intend to be in touch very soon.

I've just posted something on "The Flames of Eden" again.

If you would like to see my whole week - 31 May to 7 June - in photos, I have posted 6 separate picasa web albums at:
http://picasaweb.google.com/stewinout
The most recent is first. Please, for 7 June, open Part 1 (38 pics) before Part 2 (35 pics).
There is also a little experimental video at the bottom of the gallery, "Gulls Fishing", which was filmed on 11 Sept 05.
Comments welcome.
These below? Just fillers, though the relfection in the pond was this morning & the snails tasted good, but not as good as their large French cousins from Bourgogne.

Welcome back! That last photo was a shock...I was expecting more snails. So delightfully, beautifully ugly....

The detail on that monster is really something.
I have missed you Stewart. Welcome back.

I hope all is well.

EEEEWWWWWWWWWW - can't do the snails... sorry, I just can't. What an amazing picture! Looks like the ones in the bucket I gave my grandson to collect snails from my garden (10 cents a snail for the small ones, 25 cents for the huge ones). He gave them to our neighbor who has ducks (which like to eat the snails) :-D

I love the abstract reflection piece. Would make a nice print. And the alligator? makes me sleepy. Peace.

Welcome back Stewart, missed you too..I have only tried snails once, lots of garlic butter and oh so delicious, the first picture is beautiful the final one reminds me of me on a good day, relaxing but all thick skinned due to lifes experiences, but enjoying all the same,or perhaps I need to change my moisturiser

Hello Stewart. I'm happy to hear all is well and I'm happy that the gator didn't see you. :)

Carlos said...

Good to hear from you Stewart. I do love snails, or escargots, or caracois... with a cold beer they're delicious. The gator seems so peaceful he could almost convince us he's a nice guy.

Hi ,im glad you´re in again...had some of those "caracois" few days ago, they were good but its not something that i apreciate so much, just gave in to my hubby´s craving for those grilled "big caracoletas" with lemon butter dipping..
Once, he also bought steak of that other beautiful dragon in your last photo (did´nt even know that their meat is white) i kept it in d freezer for long time till hubby remembered it & asked me when will i prepare d croc steak for us to taste (us???) gave in again..marinated it w/lots of lemon & garlic, fried it in olive oil ( hmmm.. smells so good ) i served it but as usual, hubby must insist that i taste it, he said how can i say i dont like it if i dont taste it? So i did have a small bite, tasted it w/ caution & you know what? It tasted good! taste like a chicken meat ( maybe because they are fed w/ chicken meat in the farm where they are grown..
Till here, hope all is well...
Best regards!
Aurora

I have been dropping by your blog(s) to see how you are doing and today I am here to simply give a hug to you.

Tu es un génie de l'adaptation, Icarus, même moi, Française demi-sang, tu ne me ferais pas manger d'escargots !
Ced jolis gastéropodes à coquille sspiralée (dans tous les sens du terme) j'en ai plein dans le jardin, en général ils sont TOUT petits ! Je n'aurais jamais songé qu'on peut les manger
Quand je dis que j'en ai plein, il ne faut pas exagérer, je n'ai pas de quoi faire une fricassée...

Ce que je préfère dans les escargots en réalité c'est le "beurre d'escargot" qui suinte dans le fond du plat, avec plein d'ail et de persil...


MMMMMMM !

Another hug coming your way Stewartxx Auds

Oliviah said...

One more hug. :)
