What to do when not photoblogging in Ocala


...so long as the crosswords are easy and the novels entertaining!

And he does them in ink! I'm impressed.

A c'mon Memphis MOJO - I just scribble over my mistakes rather than erase them!

Have a great tomorrow!

James said...

Ironically I went from doing crosswords everyday to doing my blogs. You do both. My wife always says I don't multi task very well.

I bet you're one of those guys that does the Sunday New York Times crossword puzzle in ink in less than a half hour. :-)

Maybe a good cup of coffee off to the side. Looks like relaxation to me. Have a good weekend.

Sean said...

There are not many mistakes there...

Mary Helen said...

So much fun!!! It makes a great photo...

Vogon Poet said...

As a contemporary still life, this is very good!

Small City Scenes said...

I do the same thing. Pencil is so......passe. MB

Jacob said...

Hi James - You lose. I try not to do the NY Times Sunday puzzle. For some reason I end up kinda depressed at how dumb I are!

That's a fine way to spend time. I love reading as well but crosswords only occasionally appealed to me. Have a puzzly fun time!

Nikki Beaumont said...

Yes, great that MOJO pointed it out that you are doing them in ink! Have you ever watched Merv Griffin's Crossword Game Show? I bet you would be awesome on there! If you are the champ you may only walk away with a couple of hundred dollars, but the glory, baby, it would all be for the glory!

JM said...

Very clever, Jacob! :-)

By the way, there are no more monks in the Jeronimus Monastery. Besides the huge church, chapels, cloisters, etc., you can visit, the building houses several museums now.

Jacob said...

Hi JM - Thanks for that info. You may have mentioned that previously and I just missed it...I was having a hard time believing that there would be a large number interested in becoming monks these days...

Jan said...

I don't do crosswords, but Block is one of my "never miss" authors.

Fun shot. How great to learn that you ARE human after all. I thought all you did was shoot and blog. How could you possibly have time for anything else? Crossword puzzles can be relaxing if you stay away from the NY Times brain-stumpers. Very frustrating at times. They makes reading the latest news of the war and economy seem welcome and palatble.

Crossword puzzles are wonderful for exercising the brain. Ah, so there's more to life than shooting and blogging? Cool shot. ;-)

I'm no good at exercising my brain. I'll leave that and the accounts of my business to you!

nopham said...

You got help from Lois Anne on #45...for sure. Have a good week.

BB loves crossword puzzles and so ones ML, but I work my puzzles trying to create novels. it's like a huge puzzle and uses all my puzzle energy--NICE CAPTURE! have a great week!

Kcalpesh said...

Wow, that's my favorite too! :-)

This is a step away from your normal shot..... and I have to say you really out did yourself. It is really captivating. I love the way that it tells a piece of a story..... and the mystery it leaves you with not knowing what "part" of the story or for whom...

Someone seeing this without knowing you or the story behind it.... it would be greatly intriguing.... like the cover shot to a novel.

I really like this change up.
