The past week brought me everything from a colorful goldfish mural to brittle law books dating back before 1880.
What will next week bring?
This past weekend we also celebrated this great nation's 239th birthday.
To celebrate, I did nothing. Literally nothing. I didn't barbeque anything. I didn't shoot off any fireworks. I didn't photograph any either. I didn't visit any water source: pool, lake, beach or river. The only water source I visited was my shower. I did a little yoga on Saturday morning and little else.
HBO was reshowing their 2008 mini-series "John Adams" all day. And that's all I did. Watch John Adams.
And it was perfectly fine with me.
Below is the first fireworks photo I took when I was a staffer at the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette. This was shot in 1999.
And shot on chrome.
