Day 124 – Paint My Soul

I am still learning. – Michelangelo

I set out today with a blank canvas, an entire box of paints and brushes, and painted the day away with swirls and dots and a good friend. Oh how much more my soul is at peace now. I even found an object to take today’s mystery “what is it?!?” picture!

Can you tell? Do you know?

What Is It?!?


What Was That?!? Yesterday’s Picture (Day 123)

Poor, poor picture, no guesses and no story. I did have one guess over on Facebook land: looking at the bottom of a glass vase? Not that. So what was it?

I was outside yesterday taking pictures, one of which ended up being my Weekly Photo Challenge: From Above entry. Another photograph made the “what is it?!?” picture because of how the image appeared. Suddenly it no longer looked like a Ponytail Palm tree. This was looking straight down the middle.

  1. A new pizza ingredient.

    Tony only ever wanted to make pizzas.
    He saved his money by working two jobs.
    His mates were having a good time and Tony was working. Chasing his dream was making him a little bit crazy but he could not stop now; if he did it would all be for nothing.
    Finally the day came when he had accumulated enough capital to set up his pizza shop. Unfortunately for Tony it had taken him many years to get the money together and in that time four pizzas shops had opened in his town. Pizza wars had broken out a few years earlier and so margins were tight.

    There was only one thing for it.
    Tony had to come up with a new pizza topping; something delicious that no one had thought of so far. This was a big ask as there were now some amazing pizza toppings available.
    Tony was not going to see his dream die, but what to do?

    The idea came to him while wandering around his local antique shop.
    In a case, way in the back, there was an old ‘glow in the dark watch’.
    Many people had developed skin cancer from the radioactive material in the watch hands but people at the time were amazed at a watch that you could see in the dark.
    Tony thought, ‘back lighting, you half wits’, but then he remembered that watches didn’t have batteries back then.

    But, the point was made, at least to Tony.
    People will buy almost anything, especially if it glows in the dark!

    Fortunately Tony had a contact at the local US air base. They had heaps of radio active stuff just lying around and with their economy in ruins they would be grateful for some solid currency.

    Tony introduced his new pizza topping with great fanfare and celebration.
    Instant overnight success that took many years to arrive rained down on Tony.

    Sure, a few people died but no one made the connection.

    Eventually everyone introduced glow in the dark toppings but by then Tony had sold his business to Google (they will buy almost anything).
    Disney made a movie about his life (they changed quite a bit but no one noticed) and Tony retired to Queensland, the home of retired people who have made a lot of money from the general public…………. they also have a lot of hairdressers.
