One-Liner Wednesday — Mass Insanity

“In individuals, insanity is rare; but in groups, parties, nations, and epochs, it is the rule.”

Friedrich Nietzsche, German philosopher, cultural critic, composer, poet, and writer

While Friedrich Nietzsche died 121 years ago, it’s as if he was warning us about the mass insanity that has gripped the United States Republican Party in the 21st century, especially in the post-2020 presidential election era.

My Last Photo — June ‘21

Brian, aka Bushboy, posted his monthly prompt that asks us to…
  1. Post the last photo from our camera’s SD card or the last photo from our phone taken in June.
  2. No editing — who cares if it is out of focus, not framed as you would like, or the subject matter didn’t cooperate?
  3. No explanations needed — just the photo will do.
  4. Create a pingback to Brian’s post or link in the comments.
  5. Tag “The Last Photo.”

So here’s the last photo I took on my iPhone in June.

This little critter was running across the patio in my backyard when he suddenly stopped and looked directly at me. I swear I heard this little lizard say, “You talkin’ to me?” in a perfect Robert De Niro imitation. Then he suddenly scampered off the patio and found shelter under a nearby rock.
