Time for another collection of images from my road trip through Plymouth and Sioux County. Once again, the organization on this is all kinds of messed up. But you’ll get the idea.
There are still plenty more pictures from this trip still to come!
I found a few cool things while I was tooling around Sac County and Ida County. Including the birthplace of the great Andy Williams. A singer that everybody loves unequivocally. Here is the first collection of those images.
I have at least one more collection of images from this road trip still to share.
This collection of images wraps up the April section of the 2019 backlog. These are pictures from the annual Methodist Bowling Outing at Tiger Bowl in Madrid.
There are also some pictures here of the Outreach Committee putting together May Baskets.
Have a looksie:
I wonder if that was the last bowling outing for the church. Tiger Lanes is really falling apart, but Perfect Games is crazy expensive. I guess we’ll see what happens when it happens.
The images below come from the folder 05-07-08. The images range from a post supper photo shoot with an Ungs to pictures of painting Monica’s one-time Roland home to me showing off a fat stack of cash to some flowers from my Mom’s flowerbeds to one of the most fascinating creatures on the planet.
That sick wad of cash that I was flashing in the Fazoli’s parking lot was my winnings from my bowling league. Helping Monica paint the Roland house was Suzie and Cassie.
Next Saturday’s walk down memory lane will be all about the Big Jesus Road Trip.
Way back in May of last year I surprised Nate for his birthday. Well, I wasn’t the surprise, I was the distraction. While I was in the Manhattan area, I snapped a few photos:
Some of the pictures were taken in Manhattan suburbs like Leonardville and Ogden and Shelbyville and Ogdenville and North Haverbrook.
Also, happy birthday to my sister Carla and Dawg Pound sister Monica. Since, you know, it is actually your birthdays today.
A small collection of photos reside in the folder called 03-22-08:
By adding these images to the Photography 139 Photo Gallery, I was able to restore the following blogs to their original glory:
1 picture is of a Jaycees newsletter. The dogs are Shimmer and Destiny from the Stensland family. The final picture is from the bowling alley, from back when I was in a bowling league.
Next Saturday’s walk down memory lane will involve Easter.
Monday night was the debut of my new bowling shirt. It isn’t much to look at. I freely admit this fact. But it is mine and it was free.
This is the first year as a team we have had bowling shirts. Now Patio Pros LLC, might not be the most stylish team in the world, but I guarantee you that we are the most stylish 8th Place team in any league.
I wish I could say that the debut was successful, but Corey’s Uncle Daryl took me behind the woodshed. That was to be expected, I am about the worst bowler in the league. Although I seem to bowl much better when Nate shows up. I’m going to have to see to it that he shows up more often.
The subject of this entry is not a reference to the Spartans. This is the 300th entry in An Artist’s Notebook.
This post is mostly to announce to the world in general:
“You’ve beaten me, again!!”
It isn’t the first time that the world has beaten me. It certainly won’t be the last.
A few weeks back I indicated that I was getting an alarmingly high amount of text messages on my phone and it was time to get a text messaging package. I knew that the bell had tolled for me, but I did nothing about it.
Until today. After volunteering at the Jaycee’s Bowling Challenge (where incidentally I think I was the least favorite volunteer of the people running the Challenge) I made the trip to the mall and signed up for a text messaging package.
There you have it world. You win again. Feel free to text message me to the fullest of your heart’s desire. You won’t hear me grumble about it ever again.
I also picked up a new phone. The keypad was fading fast on the old phone. I didn’t pick up anything fancy like Jesse or Willy. However, I do now get the joy of putting in new Caller ID Photos of my friends and create new ringtones for them. That will give me something to do. I just need to figure out just the right song and just the right picture for each friend.
I still need to get the old pictures off my phone. That could make for an interesting entry some time in the future.
