This frog didn't move much while I was walking here, so I was able to get more photos of him when I was on my way back out.

"T Stands For Teddy On Ship Slide" - Photograph

I am joining Bleubeard and Elizabeth for this week's T Stands For challenge found here.

This is my summation of the past week:

Those are photos of Teddy that I took during one of our trips to Ash Creek Open Space a few weeks ago.

I needed a ticket into this week's T-gathering, but our series of photos showing Teddy with magazine images showing drinks has been preempted by one showing Teddy holding a package of Strawberry Tea Cakes that he saw at the grocery store and insisted we buy. He has his new Owl mug at the ready, to fill with tea.

The weather was nice for part of this past week, but then a last gasp of Summer weather came in for the weekend and Monday, the first day of Fall. It got progressively hotter each day, with Monday peaking around 86 F (30 C). A September warm up has happened every year for decades now here in CT, and is our normal weather pattern.

I made a 4x6 and 6x4 version of an Autumn Umbrella Girl. I also made an "Autumn Jester" and Vintage Kitchen postcard.

September 20 was Storm Area 51 Day! but nothing much happened. The US Government and Air Force had a several day Nevada Area 51 No Fly Zone for Storm Area 51 surrounding the date, and "threatened" to kill millennials using a stealth bomber. Apparently no one has a sense of humor anymore, so the jokes made by both sides (the ones planning to "raid" Area 51 and the ones planning to "defend" it) got both sides in trouble with the grouches who now dictate jokes and laughter are not allowed.

I got a new bird feeder and shepherd's hook post.

There was a scary looking Black And Yellow Garden Spider In Web in my yard.

I saw an interesting Pagan Rock Cairn Wood, and a lovely Bee Mural.

Over the weekend, we watched the following:

miscellaneous: Live And Let Die (1973) (DVD) (excellent) and Rage (2014) (DVD) (very good).

horror: Pay The Ghost (2015) (DVD) (excellent), Death Of A Ghost Hunter (2007) (DVD) (good), Nightmare Castle (1965) (DVD) (good), and Zombie Hell House (The House by the Cemetery (1981)) (DVD) (okay).

sci-fi: The Arrival (1996) (DVD) (excellent), Cloverfield (2008) (DVD) (good), and Stranded (2013) (DVD) (okay).

"Nevada Area 51 No Fly Zone for Storm Area 51" - Map

© All Rights Reserved
(Click on image to enlarge)

It looks like the US Government and Air Force aren't taking any chances with today's scheduled Storm Area 51 event. On September 13, 2019 and September 16, 2019, they issued Temporary Flight Restriction (TFR) notices 9/9625 and 9/0353 respectively. I suppose they're worried some of the Naruto runners might use drones with cameras to try to get a look at where the aliens are being held captive. :-)

I created this using GIMP 2.10.12.

Happy Storm Area 51 Day!  

Storm Area 51 Disclaimer: This First Amendment protected artwork is intended to be a cartoon/joke about the rescue of alleged extraterrestrials (i.e. aliens) being held prisoner in Area 51 in Nevada, United States. I do not encourage nor endorse a raid on Area 51 or any government property.
If you haven't heard about "Storm Area 51" do a search on that phrase, and you'll find articles about it.

And in other fun, trending news, it turns out Birds Aren't Real. What's next? Perhaps I need to start the Rhinoceros Revolution.

Coincidentally, this week there were articles stating the "US Navy confirms recent UFO videos are, in fact, real." If you haven't seen those videos, they are the fakest ones I have ever seen! But don't take my word for it, have a look yourself:

And the US Government really needs to get better Hollywood script writers for the dialog used in those videos.
