It’s very dangerous to wave to people you don’t know because what if they don’t have hands? They’ll think you’re cocky.
Last Thursday, Jill posed for a few pictures for a photo project I am working on. Below are some of the results of that photo session.
Hopefully, I will be able to finish up this project in the next few weeks and get it properly displayed on one of my walls.
I spent most of my waking hours at the State Fair this weekend. I’ve posted some pictures of the experience in the Snapshots Gallery.
Follow the link to have a gander (although there literally are no ganders in the album):
Admittedly, this album is heavy on pictures of flowers and butterflies.
Life and work has been busy as of late, but I did want to draw some attention to pictures from a recent Road/Camping Trip that I went on.
You can see those pictures by clicking on the link below:
I might write on this trip in the future, but the important things to know are this:
- The Gunderburger is a full pound of meat.
- Spook Cave is the only boat cave tour in Iowa.
- 6 people went on the trip. We packed enough stuff for 20 people.
- Jay is afraid of waterfalls.
- Derrick knows his way around a burger.
- Sara earned her hiking badge.
- Shannon makes a mean biscuits and gravy.
- I need a new tent.
- We have gotten old.
I’m already looking forward to next year’s The Road Trip.
A brief break from Africa for a moment.
Over a year ago I signed up for a Twitter account. I tweeted briefly and then decided I could not be that self-absorbed. I already have an extensive website and a blog devoted to me, why did I need to take it up a notch with micro-blogging.
I allowed my Twitter account to remain dormant. Then this year I had to set up a Twitter account for Ames on the Half Shell. As the season progressed, I found myself wanting to tweet less and less about Ames on the Half Shell and more and more about me and my life.
It turns out that I am self-absorbed enough to also want to micro-blog. Actually I think I wanted another excuse to play with my phone.
I still really haven’t put much up there, besides a picture of my neighbor and a bunch of quotes from The Breakfast Club. (Now is the time for Derrick and I to fulfill our dream of producing The Breakfast Club on stage.)
However, I am going on a road trip this weekend and I might find it necessary to tweet from the open road.
So, if you are bored with your existence and wish to be bored with my existence, head on over to my Twitter page and see what is going on in my world.
If you are on Twitter and I have not found you, let me know and I will follow your self-absorption too!
More pictures from Uganda.
More to come…
This might be my favorite set of pictures yet.
Where I come from, they have a word for this kind of sign.
More to come…
Most of the pictures were taken near the source of the Nile.
I will tell you that the first picture is of a mass grave.
