#46 - "Bug Sprayer. . ."

#47 was the nail - let's see who "nailed" it. . . Milt, Tony, Elaine, Joani, Mike, Jim, and Peyton. I had two refrigerators (Michelle was one of them) in the mix as well.

"Bug Sprayer"

Those of us who are old enough remember this time-tested dispenser of insect-killing chemicals - just had to remember to point it AWAY from people.

This device was resting comfortably on a shelf in an abandoned house in Carver. I was fortunate enough to have joined up with two other photo club members for this shoot. The contents of the dwelling were a testimony to "time standing still." Items from the late forties and early fifties were all over the place - from the products in the medicine cabinet to the hand pump on the kitchen sink to the newspapers still opened up around the parlor.

In one of the bedrooms, I found a sweater hanging under this shelf resident. Obviously, it was working as there was not one moth-eaten hole in that garment!

Greatest Inventions of All Time!

Recently I came across an article about the greatest inventions as determined by a large group of scientists, philosophers, educators, and other professions. Their task was to create a list of "the Greatest Inventions of All Time." Conveniently, the final list numbered fifty! so, I'm starting with #50 and working my way down to Numero Uno in December.

Fear not as I will offer you some hints as to what the invention was.


#46 is a state of temporary induced loss of sensation or awareness which enables the painless performance of medical procedures that would otherwise cause severe or intolerable pain to a patient. 

Three broad categories exist - it may include analgesia (relief from or prevention of pain), paralysis (muscle relaxation), amnesia (loss of memory), or unconsciousness.

Murphy's Laws

Law of Television. . .

If you have only watched a TV series once, 
and you watch it again, 
it will most likely be a rerun of the same episode.
