Starry starry nights...

Australian photographer Lincoln Harrison takes photos of the night sky in remote locations by leaving the shutter open for up to 15 hours. The results are truly spectacular!

Crazy house

I find this little house strangely attractive...

Old people....

An elderly couple were celebrating their sixtieth anniversary.

They had married as childhood sweethearts and had moved back to their old neighborhood after they retired.

Holding hands, they walked back to their old school. It was not locked, so they entered, and found the old desk they had shared where Andy had carved ‘I love you Sally!’

On their way back home, a bag of money fell out of an armored car, practically landing at their feet. Sally quickly picked it up, and not knowing what to do with it, they took it home.

There, she counted the money: “$50,000.00!”

Andy said, ‘We’ve got to give it back.’ 

Sally said, ‘Finders keepers.’ She put the money back in the bag and hid it in the attic.

The next day, the FBI was canvassing the neighborhood looking for the money. They knocked on the door. ‘Pardon me, but did either of you find a bag that fell out of an armored car yesterday?’

Sally said, ‘No.’
Andy said, ‘She’s lying. She hid it up in the attic.’
Sally said, “Don’t listen to him, he’s getting senile.’

The agents turn to Andy and began to question him. One says: ‘Tell us the story from the beginning’

Andy said, ‘Well, when Sally and I were walking home from school yesterday...’

The first FBI guy turns to his partner and says, ‘We’re outta here.’

Need a big bedroom for this bed!

I like the simplicity of this bedroom, with its huuuge bed. Alas, all our bedrooms are small...
