Thursday Challenge: Superman, I'm Not...

beach 098

...but I was feeling a little bit like the Man of Steel yesterday.

A tiny metamorphosis took place yesterday in Scribe Land. No, I didn't figure how to become faster than a speeding bullet; nor am I yet able to leap tall buildings in a single bound. ~ although that would be way cool, wouldn't it? But I'm am a tad proud of my little ol' self. I quasi-mastered a couple of HTML tricks, & we all might be the better for it, in the long run.

I've spoken in this space before about
the aging process ~ particularly with moi. And I've struggled on & off with the face of this space. But I wanted something clean, something smart & something y'all could read without having to get your specs out.

We're in the 3rd iteration here over at
The Scholastic Scribe, but I'm a tiny bit proud of the changes. First off, I think the wider posting space is reader-friendly. Please let me know if it's not. And secondly, you won't have to squint any longer to get a gander at some pretty Superior Snaps.

And as July melts into August, that means The Scribe Family will be headed out to the beach. OBX. The place where once upon a time, Mrs. Scribe picked up a really nifty shell.

So, thanks to The Blogger Guide for taking me thru the really pretty simple steps for altering my HTML code just a tiny little bit. And a GREAT BIG THANKS to Blue Orchid Designs, which has posted 5 really easy steps for making your Snaps that much more Superior. Here's thinking of vacation, the beach & the Good Old Summertime. Superior Snaps, BTW, by my fabulous SIL. She's a gem!

All kinds of critters frequent the OBX. Some day I'll write about the ghost crab that took hold of the soft spot between Mr. Fairway's thumb and index finger, & just wouldn't let go...

...or these funny little birds ~ Sanderlings, maybe, but I really don't know ~ who skitter up and down the beach, following the surging tide, all blessed day long.

...or the human variety, at the top of this post and above, who never know when to get out of the sun.

Editor's Note: Because this undertaking was a challenge, & because these Superior Snaps showcase a celebration (this week's theme), I've thrown my proverbial hat into the ring for Dale's Thursday Challenge.

Generic Viagra (sildenafil citrate; brand names include: Aphrodil / Edegra / Erasmo / Penegra / Revatio / Supra / Zwagra) is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction regardless of the cause or duration of the problem or the age of the patient.

Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
