Time for this week’s Share Your World from Cee’s Photography.

 

Here are Cee’s questions for the week:

Where do you eat breakfast?

During the week? Generally, in my car on the way to work…if I eat anything at all.  The one constant for “breakfast” is my coffee.

So long as I have my cup, or three, before I get to work, everyone is spared my non-morning-person-sans-caffeine disposition.  Caffeine is my friend…caffeine is good:

Now, on the weekends?  I’m usually the big breakfast chef on weekends, especially on Sunday’s.  Pancakes are my specialty.  Also, sometimes we even have breakfast for dinner.

Given the choice of anyone in the world, whom would you want have a evening with?

My wife.

If you could be a tree or plant, what would you be?

I’d be a live/preservation oak.

They live forever, give the best shade, they’re strong enough to withstand storms, they live in the south, and kids love climbing on them.

What inspired you or what did you appreciate this past week? Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination.

There’s this guy I see every day on my home from work.  I wrote about him a bit in this post, from over 2 years ago:

https://sonofabeach96.com/2015/08/27/whats-the-story/

To this day, Monday through Friday, rain or shine, cold or hot, even in snowy weather, he’s walking along the road, and he literally waves at EVERY car that hums past him.  I’ve never talked to him, but I wave back to him…EVERY day.  He’s very dedicated to his walks, and spreading a sliver of kindness to complete strangers.  Every single day.  It’s nice to see that, and it gives me hope for humanity, even through such a simple act.

 

My songs of the day are:

“Breakfast In Bed” by The Pretenders

“Be My Wife” by David Bowie

“At A Later Date” by Joy Division

“Tree To Grow” by The Lone Bellow

“Lying Under Oak” by Band Of Horses

“The Dreaming Tree” by Dave Matthews Band

“Sugar Wife” by The National

“Continental Breakfast” by Courtney Barnett

    • Thanks. It’s actually not mine….well, sort of. It’s at my MIL’s house in Long Beach, MS. I suppose it is ours, as we inherited the property when she passed away. But it’s a beauty. Estimated to be around 400 years old. There are 4 on the property that are registered as landmarks because of their age. Can’t trim a branch without it getting approved. But they’re amazing.

      • Impressive. We have some pin oaks on our acreage that are draped with Spanish moss, and vines. No where near 400 years old, but full of character. I adore them.

      • Love the moss. My wife’s dad and step-mom have preservation oaks at their place in Apalachicola, and the moss is all over them. One the many things I love about the south. 😃

  5. Wow, that preservation oak looks awesome to climb on. I just love all those branches like tentacles reaching out.

    • It’s a beauty. Estimated to be around 400 years old. Perfect for climbing. 😊

      • 400 years old! That’s amazing especially when you think more than 10 generations of kids have been climbing it. Thinking of it predating a camera so imagining someone setting up a camera, loading a glass plate in, and taking a picture in the mid 1800s because it would already be huge then. I know cactus can be that old too but they don’t have that oak’s majesty

      • They’re really incredible. This one is in Long Beach, MS at my MIL’s house. In that location, it’s amazing how many major hurricanes it’s survived in that span. They certainly are tough and built to last. 😃

  6. Agree with the others, every answer was awesome! That tree makes me want to climb it! Oh to be young and nimble again! 😁
