Me And My Shadow

A bit of a departure today. Last week I started participating on the Theme Thursday website. Each Sunday the Theme Thursday folks post a weekly theme and ask idea-starved bloggers - such as myself - to participate. For example, last week the theme was "festivals" and I decided to do a piece on the 40th anniversary of Woodstock over on my music blog dufusdownbeat.

This week, the theme is "shadow". There are various ways to go on this theme but when I first saw it I immediately thought of something I'd posted some time ago, back when nonamedufus was more of a picture and video blog. It's from an appearance on the David Letterman show of Australian hand shadow specialist and "Unusualist" Raymond Crowe. I think you'll be as amazed as I was when you watch this.

If you're interested in being further amazed, visit Raymond Crowe's website. And be sure to visit Theme Thursday and click on the links to see how my blogging buddies there have dealt with this week's theme...

Tales From The Supermarket

Bob and Brenda worked in the supermarket. They weren't check-out clerks. And they weren't stock-boys. Brenda sure wasn't. And they weren't employees who worked in the fish section or the deli. No. They were on the shelves.

They hadn't been on the shelves very long but in that short time they'd developed a considerably close friendship.

The chatted all day when the store was busy and at night when the store was closed. They talked about everything. The talked about what raw products they came from.

One day when Brenda was commenting on their friendship she told Bob she was grateful for their amity. "Are you Tea?" said Bob, pekoe-ing her way. "I thought I was Tea". You're coffee!"
