Wishing Well

A friend's wishing well, made from landscaping timbers had, of course, turned the usual weathered light boring brown. Somewhere along the line I found 2 very small cans of paint that I thought really matched her house. When you click on the pic to see the larger view, you'll see how hokey I painted this thing. But the overall effect is pretty cool.

More Than Just Interesting

This photo(from hits me like a ton of bricks every time I see it. My Father always colored his Bible - each color representing a specific thing. Blue for royalty or grace and so on. When I first saw this I just assumed it was a Bible and that someone else had done the same thing as Dad. But no, it's an English-Japanese dictionary. And this just completely upends my little mind. To me it makes complete sense to color code a Bible. But a dictionary ??

And I had never really noticed the similar way that they're formatted - the twin columns on each page. . . . .
