Found Art Friday 137

Dear Ones,
Last week, we missed the boat  -  and this week almost, and next week we shall surely despite our regular intentions. C'est la vie.
Today, we experienced a special moment in commerce to share with you. This was from a man with Jim embroidered on the white rectangle of his stiff blue shirt, who operates a unique hybrid of automobile repair/ fishing supply store:  "What I say to people who complain is  - ain't nobody give a doo doo about it - so why waste your breath".
 Yet Another Special Moment in the World of Commerce

They still have hope somehow

He does not Tweet!
We hope you have been both naughty and nice.
And thank you to those of you who responded to the nearly impossible guess about this image.
You deserve the honey honeys.

Because this is (what THE INTERNET said it was). 

Enjoy your world corners.  We'll see you around the bend.

Found Art Friday 136

Dear Ones,
Welcome to the Department of Homeland Inspiration once again, in case we've lost the trail of breadcrumbs.  Now as the Holidaze start to heat up the planet, we have the following humble visual happening:
What's in your sink? as witnessed by Bonnie Hotz.  Whoah
And it's a throwback to the early Art Ranger posts.

A while ago,  Blogger service ran out of memory for The Art Ranger's images and began charging a monthly memory fee, so we had to prune our kitchen sink diary.   It blows our mind, the fossilfueled "cloud" we're helping to feed.  Technologies gorging on whole new kinds of consumption.
This sink glimpse conjures up quite a tadpole, eggy, fisheye, early life morphology.  Is it coming or going?

With a very early fashion sense. 


Now for images gathered in the mindcamera while talking on the phone with The 82 year-old Mother of Art Ranger.  Picture the berries and ju ju bees on Phoebe's front door Christmas wreath being about the same color red of the embryo compartment above. (Phoebe does themed napkins and doors, but goes short of a mailbox cover with her enthusiasms). 


For the past several days, she reported, a clever and brazen Magpie has been eating all the berries off her Christmas wreath.  Every last one of them.  Evidently Magpie is angry about all the synthetics.  Perched awkwardly upon the wreath, the large vigorous bird (known for robbing eggs) is thrashing and jingling and pecking the tiny bells off this ring of greenery-ribbon-berry-smell.  She had to let it continue .... the bird so determined, pointedly and patiently working at his nature reclamation project.
