The sun was shining, all birds were singing and everything was great whan I came to work today. I looked at the equipment they borrowed at work to se if I could make it work. It didn´t take one minute until I figured out how to do with it. I started painting and got a really good surface on the coating. That was until I sort of dropped the painting gun and broke it. Not good. I tried to get to the owner on his mobile phone, but only cae to the answering service on the phone. If I could have reached him we could have gotten a spare part within an hour, but he never phoned back. But now he at least knows what has happened.

Buttercups can come in different colours. This one is light yellow on the outside and white on the inside. This is called 'Citrina'.


It´s summer outside today, really warm and the everlasting wind makes it nice to be outside. It´s just enough to make the flies hide in the bushes and to make the heat tolerable. They say it will continue for a couple of days more and I´m really happy that it´s holiday tomorrow :-)



It´s Disney time on tv now and I have to say they don´t make cartoons like they used to. It´s Gof trop now and I can´t for my life understand what´s funny with it. No I want the old times back then. Like when Donald Duck has a war with Chip´n Dale at Christmas time :-) Or why not Tom and Jerry or Road Runner and Wile E. Coyote :-) :-) I laughe so I cry when watching Wile E coyote trying his stupid ideas like eating earthquake pills :-) Or the time he actully catches Road runner, but has shrinken in size :-) So when it comes to cartoons, please give me back those good old days :-)
Have a nice day now!

I have to agree with you, I watch cartoons with my granddaughter and it's not the same anymore. I don't even find anything to laugh at.

Broke the paint gun? Does the union have an answer for that? I was a Teamsters a long time ago and we always stopped working when something broke. And we were paid union wage. Oh the good ole days. Wish it were like that today. You have a great day and thanks again for the beautiful photos.

Hi Z&M!
I´m glad You agree with me :-) Do they only make crap these days? I mean kids today laugh at the things we laughed at when young, so It must be todays cartoons that are bad not our sence of humor :-)

Don´t think the union has anything to say about my clumsyness :-) And since I was the union today I just change to my ordinary equipment and painted other things :-)
Have a great day now!

Hi joyce!
Icehockey is over since long here, but I do listen after the results in Stanly cup :-)

Yes, the last one is a R. yakusimanum of som sort. It´s a bit on the tough side here but it made it through this winter without any problems.

It´s fun having new lenses and trying them out in all sort of ways :-)
Have a great day now!
Christer.
