Boone FUMC Soup Supper & Christmas Pageant

A couple Sundays back the Boone First United Methodist Church had our annual Christmas Pageant.

Before the Christmas Pageant was a Soup Supper that was a fundraiser for the Youth Group’s Mission Trip to Rapid City next June.

Here are some pictures from the night:

Worried you didn’t get a chance to help support the Rapid City Mission Trip? Don’t worry. There are at least 2 more fundraisers for you to support.

Stay tuned for more information.

That’s Life

If you’re not in the parade, you watch the parade. That’s life.
-Mike Ditka

Last Thursday was the annual lighted parade in Boone. I’m sure it has a proper name, but I don’t know what it is.

As a member of the Outreach Committee, I was part of the team that put together the “float” for the lighted parade. Unfortunately, we didn’t garner very many volunteers and I had to call a couple people last minuted just to borderline half fill our “people carrier”.

Although most people would not consider it a failure, I sorta do. That is okay. We learn more from our failures than we do from our successes. That means at the 2019 lighted parade, we will be back with a vengeance!

Here are some pictures from the event:

Santa was infatuated with my beard. He really wanted me to join the Santa union or something. Told me I could make $100 an hour as a “real beard Santa”. Maybe sometime, but I’m not ready for the Santa gig yet.

For the last, oh, 15 or so years, my church has hosted a free Thanksgiving dinner.

It is open to anybody and it is 100% free. We don’t ask for an “at will donation”. We don’t put out baskets for donations. It is 100% free.

I went down there for the first shift to take some photographs to submit to the newspaper.

Here are a few pictures from the day:

Organized Lightning

Way back in August I was invited out to the Junck farm to play with his drone. That was the moment I officially got drone fever.

I played with the drone for at least 45 minutes. I would share some pictures from that experience, but I have yet to see them. That is how the drone crashes.

Steve was in town helping his parents with an electric car tour. The tour culminated with a car show at the Junck farm.

Here are some pictures from that event:

Speaking of Drone Fever, here is where I currently stand on the goals I need to accomplish to pulling the trigger on that drone:

1. Pay off car.
2. Bank fraud refund.
3. New rear brakes.
4. Big 12 Championship Game Trip
5. Remaining Self-Directed Training Budget – $355.20
6. 2019 Calendars
7. Iowa State Bowl Trip
8. Subscribe to Des Moines Register
9. Hope to not get screwed over by the GOP Tax Scam.
10. DJI Mavic Pro 2
11. Sony RX0
12. Sony Alpah a7II

A Photo Journal – Henry Carroll – Page 44

When RAGBRAI came through Boone a few months back, I knew it would be a great chance to tackle Page 44 of THE PHOTO JOURNAL PROJECT.

Therefore I took a day off from the day job, grabbed my camera, and began walking down Old 30 between Boone and Ogden.


Photo Journal - Page 44
Page 44 – Take us on a journey through your picture.

I took hundreds more pictures of the RAGBRAI experience, but I’ll share those at a later date.

Next time we check in on THE PHOTO JOURNAL PROJECT, we’ll… I have no clue what page we’ll check in on. I need to get out there and take some more pictures!

This is your reminder that this week’s WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE theme is ? PLACE:



? PLACE


A ? PLACE picture is a picture of a PLACE from where you are at or wherever you are from.

Happy photo harvesting!

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.
