And I’m Out to Cut the Junkie

I actually made two trips out to McHose Park to attempt to create my WATER image for the WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE. Loyal followers of my Instagram account know what happened during my first effort. Therefore, no reason to bring that up again.

I took more than 1 photo while I was out there, so I thought I would share some of the other contenders for WATER, that fell short one way or another.

I’m sure I won’t have as many FOOD losers. Or maybe I’ll have no food losers. I guess I’ll see how that plays out.

Iowa Gothic

Jesse and I went on a road trip a ways back. Here are some images from that trip, provided with the occasional commentary.

































I love the fact that “Loafing” was prohibited.


I had to have this picture taken as 1 of my favorite scenes from one of my favorite movies (Taxi Driver) is when Robert DeNiro takes his date to the porn theater because he doesn’t know any better.






















The chick that ran this place was awesome & I think we were her favorite guests of the day.






There aren’t enough buildings in Iowa that are marked where a ship ran into them.










Tebow!






Anybody who knows the exact reason why we stopped to take this picture is one of my favorite people in the world.







I am already looking forward to our next road trip. Maybe a couple more people will join us. If interested, forward your Road Tripping Resume to me. We will be looking for people with a sense of adventure and a large bladder. The bladder size is negotiable.

Vacation Stuff – Two

Here are a few pictures from another mini-adventure. I will not answer questions about this trip, (it was a spiritual quest and that is all you need to know) but I will let leak the following tidbits:

  • Faust really hates nature. Perhaps even more than Bill fears nature.
  • I was proud of Jay. He confronted his fear of waterfalls by not immediately running out of the park when he came face to face with the trickle of water that fell down a face of some rocks.
  • Jackson will make a great Ranger some day. He already lives by the creed: “No man left behind.”
