I've never been framed!
I've been blamed for lots of things in my life. I must admit that for most of the charges, I stand guilty as charged. However, believe it of not, there were lots of times growing up that I found myself in the wrong place at the wrong time. For example, I and others had nothing to do with burning Lewis Lumber Company down that fall evening. We seemed guilty, but we were proven innocent. But I know who did. I had nothing to do with the large, back field that caught fire that afternoon after school. But I know who did. Did I find mischief? Sure did. Did I do a few things I regret now? Sure did. Was I ever framed for a deed I had absolutely nothing to do with? Absolutely not. Somedays, I wish I had been.
It would have made a heck of a story.
By the way, I am framing this weekend.
Does that count?  


  1. You are a man of many talents; framing art work is one of them?

    1. No, but I have a close and personal friend that's pretty good at it. Ha!

  2. well, framer is better than arsonist. :)

  3. Ah, yes, to BE framed, not so good, but to frame, 'tis noble . . .

  4. Hope they caught the right person -- barbara

  5. So you were good...

    I wish I could frame (in the literal sense).

  6. When I saw the title of this post I thought, "Oh, crap, Birdman's in jail and needs bail money." You can imagine my relief when I read your commentary and find that you are not even a minor criminal. :)

  7. Just caught up! You have been posting some great shots. Looks like you have had as much snow as we have. I even took some of those shovel pictures as a measure. Hope you had success with your framing....photographs?

  8. You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law.
