Temperature, originally uploaded by needlepointernc.

The TEMPERATURE of this sign is hot, but it was really only 45 degrees F out today! So, there is not much danger of burning your behind on the playground equipment!

I used Lightroom to dull out the photo and then used Photoshop Elements to make the sign redder then it is (it is faded from the sun).

Playground, originally uploaded by needlepointernc.

The PLAYGROUND at the Buffaloe Road Park was deserted today. I guess it was too cold to slide down the slide and everyone was at the mall finishing their Christmas shopping.

I used the Polaroid Medium preset in Lightroom to change the original image.

Halls of Justice, originally uploaded by needlepointernc.

This is the front of the Wake County Courthouse, which is the HALLS OF JUSTICE if you get a speeding ticket. I was amazed when I heard what they call disputing a ticket here in Wake County. You can have a ticket dismissed if you go down to the Courthouse and ask for a Prayer For Judgment in front of a judge. It is like being on probation for 3 years. You don’t get charged points on your insurance if you don’t get another ticket in the following 3 years.

All I want for Christmas is a new HP COMPUTER. Not really, I have a new computer, but if you need a new computer buy an HP so my pension stays safe LOL.

You can still buy some of these ACCESSORIES in time for Christmas! If you know someone with a Wii game box, then these would make good stocking stuffers.
