I've been taking a picture a day, every day, for eight months. Just four more months to go for this project. So far, so good.

    So what you're REALLY saying is that you're behind the 8 ball...

    Or in front of it...

    Not a great place to be, in either case, considering the fact that, in the early 1800's in London, the 8 Ball was actually a huge 23 ton metal ball used to flatten hot metal into sheets for use in factories and ship yards. When someone was "behind the 8 ball" it meant that they were on the wrong side of its roll and, unfortunately, became a flattened shadow of their former selves...
