Then I Wonder How Much I Can Spend

The final NATURE stop I made was to Lake Augstin. Here are those pictures:

Our run in with a snapping turtle reminds me of a story from my childhood.

One day a snapping turtle showed up in the driveway of my first boyhood home. In my mind it was tied down, but I’m not sure how you would do that. I apparently got very close to the turtle because, well turtles, despite being cowards, are awesome. This lead to a generalized freakout by my Mom.

But where did the turtle come from?

My Dad was riding home from work with a co-worker named Buzz Lee when they saw a snapping turtle crossing the road. They stopped. Picked it up and threw it in the trunk of Buzz Lee’s car. Eventually the turtle went to my Great Uncle Harold who cooked him up and we ate him for supper one night. While that turtle ended up as food, he did get his revenge. While in the trunk of Buzz’s car he at a bunch of the wiring to the car’s taillights. Everything had to be replaced.

I salute that turtle for not going down without a fight!

Then I Wonder Why She Sleeps with my Friends

This collection of NATURE losers was taken at Ledges.

I got off work early on a Friday and headed to Ledges. I thought that I had insect repellent in my trunk, but I was wrong. I forged on anyways. I got absolutely lit up by mosquitoes. It was not a fun experience. Then when I came out of the remote woods (I was off trail hiking) I was greeted by 3 kids from the Youth Group. Their picture was to show me their excitement for the mission trip. It is getting really close now!

A Photo Journal – Henry Carroll – Page 15

Last Saturday while I was leaving the Cultural Building at the Iowa State Fairgrounds, I came across what I considered a perfect example of Page 15 for THE PHOTO JOURNAL PROJECT.

This time there was no photo assistant, just a rocking soundtrack coming from a speaker somewhere on the Iowa State Fairgrounds. “We built this city. We built this city on rock’n’roll!!!”

Only one photo can go in the Photo Journal, but I also liked these:

I’m not sure what page in the THE PHOTO JOURNAL is next for me. The one that seems to be calling me next is Page 10.
