ANDERSON-DEGENEFFE: SET 4

This is the final collection of pictures from the Anderson-Degeneffe Wedding that I am going to share.

This almost concluded the 2017 back log. It does conclude it if I decide not to share any pictures from the Computer Mine Holiday Card. I will make my decision on that before I get to the end of this here blog.

I Want My Mummies

Seemed like a good time to share some of my pictures from the Iowa State Fair this year.

I made two trips to the Fair. 1 with Baby Got Rack. The other on the last day of the Fair with Jesse and Nader to pick up my 2 photos that were displayed at the Iowa State Fair Photography Salon. Russell even met up with us briefly.

Fortune smiled upon me with the scheduling of events at the Iowa State Fair. One of my favorite bands was playing on one of the free stages and the date happily coincided with the last day of the Fair, so I didn’t have to make a special trip to see Here Come the Mummies.

If you haven’t heard of Here Come the Mummies they are a funk group where everybody in the band dresses like a mummy. You can see how they appeal to my particular set of tastes.

Legend has it that the Nashville based band is filled with Grammy award winning artists that dress like mummies to conceal their identity; for fear of the band members violating their current record contracts.

I don’t know if this is true, but their high level of musicianship would make a pretty strong case for it being true. I don’t know too many other rock/funk concerts where you would see a badass flute duel and it would make 100% total sense.

Before I go on first dates, I like to send my date a copy of PANTS to listen to. It is the easiest way to insure that there is no second date. Also why my Tinder profile is so unpopular.*

Here are some pictures from an awesome (but one of the wettest I’ve ever experienced from the standpoint of water) rainy night with Here Come the Mummies:

We didn’t stick around for the concert as long as I had hoped. Hopefully Here Come the Mummies comes back to Iowa in 2019 so I can have the full experience.

*This is all a lie. I don’t go on dates. My Tinder profile is very popular.

Iowa State vs. Oklahoma

Yesterday, Iowa State returned to Jack Trice Stadium and played much, much, much better than they did against Iowa.

They played #5 Oklahoma, a legitimate national title contender and kept the game within striking distance until the final 2 minutes of the game.

I took plenty of pictures of the game day, but I didn’t take any 2nd half pictures. I’m not superstitious, but I’m a littlesticious. The less I touched the camera, the better Iowa State did. So I didn’t touch the camera at all in the 2nd half.

Here are some pictures from the day:

Hopefully the Cyclones can get into the win column next Saturday against Akron, but that same Akron team just went on the road and beat Northwestern. Iowa State never catches a break.

It is true that Northwestern is a part of the complete trash Big Ten West (Iowa and Minnesota are the only schools in that division that won yesterday and Iowa was playing a bad FCS team and Minnesota was playing Miami and not the one in Florida). Nebraska lost to Troy. One guy. Beat the vaunted Corned Huskers.

While Iowa State should certainly still win, the game suddenly looks much harder than it did 2 weeks ago

I took many more pictures from the game. You can peruse them by looking at the link below:

IOWA STATE VS. OKLAHOMA

For those that have been asking. We are hoping to have Taco Tailgate this year on either October 13 for the West Virginia game or October 27 for the Texas Tech game. I just found out that I am going to a Foo Fighters concert on October 12, so October 27 is the most likely scenario.

I am also still looking at arranging a road trip to the November 3 game against Kansas. Contact me if you are interested.

07-07-08 & 07-12-08

Going to put two folders of images out there on this post. The folders 07-07-08 and 07-12-08 contain pictures of light painting of flowers and from Saucy Jack’s night at Ames on the Half Shell.

I haven’t really done much light painting lately. It is something I need to try my hand at again.

I remember Saucy Jack being the worst band to play Ames on the Half Shell the times I attended Ames on the Half Shell. They were booked every year because they had a connection with somebody who maybe was once a Jacyees. They were kind of a poor man’s Hairball, only without the limited musicianship. Also, without the theatrics.

Next Saturday’s walk down memory lane will involve lots of softball, among other things.

Them Degeneffe Boys – Volume 2

As Pufferbilly Days wound to a close, I would like to share the photos that were selected by popular vote and how they did in the Pufferbilly Days Photo Contest:


Pufferbilly Days Photo Contest - 2018

3rd Place – Hidden Treasures of Boone County.

Pufferbilly Days Photo Contest - 2018
1st Place – Photojournalism.

Pufferbilly Days Photo Contest - 2018
1st Place – Photoshop.

As far as I know, there wasn’t anybody else in the contest that I know. Once again, they didn’t put any names on any of the photos. In years past they had at least put a sheet of paper at the bottom of the display with a list of who finished 1st, 2nd, and 3rd. It is what it is.

I started entering the Pufferbilly Days Photo Contest again 2 years ago because I was worried that the amount of entries had gotten really small. the last couple of years the numbers had ballooned. This year, the amount of entries atrophied again.

Hopefully it bounces back again next year.

+++++++

We are so close to the end of the 2016 backlog that you can probably feel it. After this post, there is only one photo shoot left to publish.

But before we get to that, we need to finish up with the pictures of Austin and Porter at a McHose Park playground.
