friday's fringe 28 ~ lake collage & bye-bye bones!

YES, this is friday's fringe...on thursday.
but it IS friday somewhere...on the other side of the world.

tomorrow morning i have an app't at the dreaded dentist.
(last week a client gave me a mini twix bar. while eating it, i felt something hard between my teeth.
hmmmmmmm, a rock in my twix bar.

nope.  a tooth.  the one i had a root canal done on not too long ago.
it just broke off! shit! at the gum line! surgery tomorrow morn. double shit!!)

i've been pretty stressed.
a perfect thriller for halloween.
(the one good thing is that i'll have to rest for a day...time to catch up with reading...)

back to the friday on thursday post...

last weekend...
we went camping/fishing to Rodman Dam/Reservoir (AKA Lake Ocklawaha)

SUNRISE on the lake

SO many pictures...thought i'd just do a collage

the lake: bald eagles, cormorants, anhingas, herons, sunrise, grackles, dragonflies, butterfly, egrets


mr bOnes.  his final october post.
soon it'll be time for all his buddies to go back in the closet.
but mr bOnes will remain perched on the mantel- all year long.

he and his bony friends have been gathering...
telling ghostly stories...shaking their bones...pulling pranks
and just being a little mischievous before they head into hiding.

thanks for visiting...on...


a new beginning. out with the old, in with the new.
remembering & honoring those that have passed on.


  1. good luck tomorrow - gorgeous camping shots!

  2. I love that sunrise, laura.

    Party hardy, mr bOnes and company!

  3. by to mr. bones' friends! love that sky shot. GOOD LUCK TOMORROW! so sorry about that stinkin' tooth!

  4. Good luck at the dentist. Be sure and ask for the laughing gas. Love all those sunny photos with all the birds and butterflies. Looks pretty good from the early snow here. If cold weather means death is approaching we should expect the Zombie Apocalypse here soon.

  5. Your sunrise is magnificent Laura! The colors are so vibrant. I don't get to see sunrises, too many trees and building, drats! We do get to see some sunsets tho, but, that's what we get for living in the city. Mr. Bones has sure stepped up to the plate this photo of his gathering with his cronies!

    That sucks about your tooth. Hope it all goes without too much pain! And, I love your collage, so many photos, and all of them are so good! I'm off work for the rest of the week, so I am able to get around here earlier than usual. Have a restful weekend, KUDOS to Mr. Bones!♥

  6. Beautiful sunrise photo.
    Great job with the collage.
    Wish you a nice weekend.
    From Hilda

  7. Oh, poor you, having your teeth prodded, nasty. I love the skyscape, wonderful. The best of luck to mR Bones, give him a sloppy kiss from you.

  8. Darn teeth wear out too . . . beautiful sunrise to think about!

  9. Good luck tomorrow..hope it's not too too bad.

  10. Beautiful sunrise and I love how you put that bird collage together. It sounds like pure your food:) Oh the gums.....the story of my life. I get a lecture on them everytime I visit the dentist:( Good luck my friend. Hope it doesn't hurt too much:)

  11. Just spend in total six hours at a dentist. Yes, it is certainly a challenge. Still eating painkillers. Wishing you all the best and a speedy recovery.

  12. I am so sorry to hear about your tooth. I always try to practice relaxing in the dental chair, deep relaxing... i send you light and good wishes.

    lovely and fun post.

  13. what a delicious mosaic of imagery you created

    hope the dentist is gentle and yes, it is Friday here :-)

  14. HI Laura....Yikes I know what your saying..I had one of my front tooth just brake of at the gum line while eating a bagel..crap!!
    Hope that goes well!!
    Beautiful sunset, and great collage!!
    Mr Bones is about ready to call it a wrap for this year isn't he!!

  15. Hi Laura, sorry about the tooth, I hope all goes well at the dentist. I love your beautiful sunrise and the awesome collage. The birds are all wonderful. Hard to believe it is almost the end of October, I can not get over how fast the days are rolling along. Love the Mr Bones shot, Happy Halloween! Have a great weekend!

  16. Oh Laura "The Dentist" now that is scary because the bill will scare anyone. Hope all is well soon. I love love the collage I wish I could figure out how to do that you are so clever.
    Don't worry about catching up I have not been doing very well myself. HUGS B

  17. Holy c,.,...where did all his friends come from? Beautiful camping trip. Yucky toothache. I'll miss mr bones!

  18. Oh good luck at the dentist - I also hate going to see him. I have a wee niggly pain in one of my teeth, I'm hoping it will just go away.
    Your pictures are lovely as usual.
    I hope you have a lovely weekend.

  19. Good-bye Mr. Bones and his boney friends--but I can't get past the dentist thing--awwwkkk! That sounds like an ordeal. I hate dentists, too, as you know. Please let me know you're okay and I hope they give you good pain pills! ;)

  20. I hope the tooth thing went well.
    Great photos from the camping trip!

    I can only imagine the stories being told by Mr.Bones and friends.

  21. Gorgeous Sunrise and LOVE the Collage!!

  22. Wycieczka była wspaniała, tyle ciekawych widoków, można pozazdrościć. O dentyście już chyba nie pamiętasz. Pozdrawiam.
    The tour was great, so many interesting sights, you can dream of. The dentist probably does not remember. Yours.


thanks for stopping by! it's always nice to hear from fellow wanderers!
