Pictures you miss when you don't have your iPhone with you...

Driving along I got a call from my wife. It lasted about 10 seconds. I put my iPhone down on the seat and continued on home. Since the snow is still in mile high piles in front of my house, I got out of the car to do a little shoveling. [I predict the snow will actually be around until May.] After shoveling, I went inside.

Unfortunately, when my son left with the car, my iPhone was still inside. It wasn't lost or anything terrible like that. It just wasn't with me all day today. Here are the pictures I missed today without my iPhone...

My little girls, as I call them, two of the cutest Pugs you ever saw, were in the backyard surrounded by snow. Missed shot.

While driving (in my wife's car) we passed a wooded area (yes, in my part of New York City we actually have large wooded areas) with trees covered with snow. Missed shot.

When we got home, my wife yelled at me for trying to shovel. [Little problem, my cardiogist told me not to shovel last winter after my quadruple bypass surgery.] Arguing over a shovel would have been a cute shot. Missed shot.

Looking out the window, there are, as I mentioned, huge mounds of snow. Missed shot.

As I sat at my desk, I wanted to record how much clutter I work in. Missed shot.

Not having an iPhone handy gets in my way. Yuck.

Oh, wait, I hear the garage door opening. My son is home...with my iPhone. :)
