Shit On A Shingle

Gasp! There's a swear word in the title! You'll have to click on the photo to look closer if you don't understand today's curse word in my title and how it relates to todays photo. I've given the literal meaning to this phrase thanks to some local pigeons defecating on the Landmark Center roof tiles in downtown St Paul.

However, the meaning behind today's title stems from my father. Growing up with my folks, but mom would make this dinner. There was toasted bread and something like cream of mushroom soup and chopped beef. My dad would call it 'shit on a shingle' but there was a real name for this dish, I believe it was 'chipped beef on toast' perhaps. I know some of you know exactly what I'm talking about and some of you have a look of confusion.

I just celebrated one year with this photo blog, why not start the next year out with a little flare and personality? I'm not a real big fan of being politically correct so you'll get some oddities here on this daily photo site. If I made you smile today, you're welcome!

Happy birthday! And you probably wouldn't believe the variety of swearing the average Aussie can fit in to daily discourse! Shit hardly rates :-)
