So, instead, I'm going to go with my photos, to prove that *I* am an awesome photographist, too.
Okay, Mistah set this photo up, fine. But I took it. And those upside-down stuffed grape leaves? So good. New larder staple.
Bill: "We need to have a lot more of cool interesting things like this in our larder."
Me: "But we always eat everything."
Bill: "You're right; it's like trying to create a wine cellar."
Me: "Is your Mumsie Christmas cacti alive? Ours is thriving.... "
Jennie: "Mine has blooms, too!! Gracie has only chewed on the leaves a little bit. What a rascal!"
Me: Mistah did all the growing and planting and harvesting and caretaking of the habeneros . . .
Myself: But I bought those habaneros in the first place. We wouldn't have them without me. I am important around here; I keep trying to tell everybody.
Moonie: Ellie took this shot? Really?
Venus: Huh. She's not half-bad, afterall.
Westy: Plus she took me for a ride on Saturday. She is awesome, I keep telling you that.
2015 Christmas Tree: Well, that was a good run . . .
Future 2016 Christmas Tree: I only hope I can burn as brightly when I give up the ghost in that kind of pathetic yet emotionally important and quite adorable little back yard campfire next year at this time . . . I hope Ellie starts that fire, too . . . she's really good at it.
Wine Glass: I'm here, I'm here; I was here the whole time. I was just waiting for Ellie to get out of the way and for that guy to come back. You know -- the guy who takes the good photos?
