Twins

I'm not a twin. Most of us are not. We stare in the mirror, and that's the closest we're ever going to make it to twins-ville. I'm happy for that. See, you having a down day, princess? There, I've just made your day. You've done the world a favor... there's only one of you!
There's only one of me too. Thank God! I don't think I could handle an identical or fraternal hanging around. I've got enough trouble just keeping myself in line. Double trouble, if you know what I mean. So, I'll just enjoy this line of trees outside work for a few more days, as I walk to my SUV. The row is magnificently lit in an afternoon sun.
I did think 'twins' when I saw them.
They are not identical, but close enough.
The scene is set for another terrific autumn day.
Blue skies, trees on fire!

  1. Glad you had a fine day. May the weekend ahead be just as good. I'm not a twin either. Think that might be strange.

  2. Remember that old tv commercial with the twins, "Double your pleasure, double your fun..." Anyway, those twin trees sure are in their autumn prime!!!!!

  4. Very nice, Birdman. And I agree it's good you're not a twin. Or as Elenka told me: "It would be a sin, if he were a twin!"

    Nah, she didn't say that, I just made it up.

  10. Whether or not they are twins, they are beautifully similar.
