Day 2413: Fear Free

It’s difficult to be fear free in this time of fear mongering, but I believe that being fear free will set us free.

I was fear free, yesterday, as I took all these photos:

While we were waiting for the Boston fireworks last night, a fear-free father sent that fire-filled balloon up into the sky.

As I am creating this post I am fear free, even though WordPress keeps telling me:

! Saving of draft failed.

You can’t scare me, WordPress!

I am fear free as I ask this question: Which of the photos in this post best represents “fear free” to you?

I am fear free as I choose this one:

Playing a kazoo as you’re buried up to your neck in sand is about as fear free as you can be.

Here‘s HouseSmarts PetSmarts “Fear Free” Episode 98.

To keep my readers fear free, I will share that both our cats are okay.

My fear free friend Deb (who gave me the art-from-the-heart cat pin) (which my fear free boyfriend thought looked exactly like our fear-filled cat Harley) and I saw “Echo in the Canyon” at the Coolidge Corner Cinema yesterday. Here’s a favorite song featured in that fear free  film:

I look forward to your fear free comments, below.

Fear free thanks to all who helped me create today’s post and — of course! — to YOU.

Day 2412: Special Operations

Yesterday, on a special day, I noticed “Special Operations” on a parked  police motorcycle.

I thought, “I’m going to be interviewed for a special podcast tonight about my special heart and several special operations, including open heart surgery.”  As I was taking that special photo for today’s “Special Operations” blog post,  I heard somebody speaking to me and that turned out to be special operations officer Hicks:

I explained to Officer Hicks, “I took that photo because I’ve had many special operations on my heart.”  He said something special, like “Those special operations must have gone well because you look pretty good considering you’ve had all those special operations.”   He also said he didn’t think he was handsome enough to be in a blog, which I thought was especially modest.

Officer Hicks and many other special operations officers were in Boston yesterday, in preparation for the special Boston 4th of July celebration today. Minutes after I photographed special operations officer Hicks, I noticed something special on my car.

I thought, “What?!?! It’s true that I just spent a long time getting a special teeth cleaning and also talking to my special dentist Dr. Del Castillo, who is doing so well after having the special operation of a double lung transplant, but I don’t think that took over two hours!”  I looked more closely and saw this special reason for that ticket:

Since when do they give out special tickets for being over 1 ft from the curb, especially since only the back of my car barely met that special criteria?

I know that special operations officer Hicks is not somebody who gives out tickets and —  in case he thinks that I’m looking for special treatment —  I already did an online special operation last night to pay it.

Do you see any special operations in my other special photos from yesterday?

As you can see from those photos, I did a special operation of pre-medicating before my dental cleaning and did a special operation  when I got home — trying out a new cat carrier on Oscar, our cat-in-a-bag.

After my special boyfriend Michael and I walked around our special neighborhood last night (and saw some unexpectedly special fireworks and a special beach bonfire), we danced to this special 4th of July song:

Now, I’m going to request that you do the special operation of making a comment, below.

Happy July 4th to everybody who performs the special operation of reading this blog, including YOU!

It took me several special operations to upload my photos today. I hope you don’t have to perform any special operations to see them!
