Some pictures from my vacation...a bit re-touched.
Denmark and Russia? Nice!
And Sweden and Norway, as well, but these were the best pics. (The boats picture is actually Sweden.)
This was my best Norway pic:
Um, do you mind if we swap wives for a while. Mine has an unnatural revulsion to books. "They collect dust!"
I don't care to have a large collection of books either. They DO collect dust. I have maybe 10-15 that are sentimental. Everything else I donate once I've read it. The girl loves them though, so I have to compromise until I can afford a house big enough for her to have a personal library.
I'd have to see a picture.
Is that Nastassja Kinski?
Edit: Yes. Yes, it is.
Well she was my first choice... if it weren't for the Colombians.
Went to the Maryland Rennaissance Festival Saturday and saw a heffalump.
Then this was parked in front of my local supermarket yesterday.
Motor Trend once had a road test of the Wienermobile.
There was also a road test of the 60's TV Batmobile, and it racked up unbelievable numbers (2 g's on the skidpad, that sort of thing).
Edit: found the road test of the Wienermobile
Ah, the Weiner mobile, saw it parked in the parking lot at the mall in july, need to dl the pics on my phone next time I'm at a computer.
Getting on the highway first thing this morning...
131 years ago, the Payne family Thanksgiving was quite an entertaining day! This program has been copied on blueprint paper (which is sill in perfect condition!). My great-grandfather, John Shields Payne, worked as a draftsman at Rogers Locomotive in Paterson, NJ. I'm assuming he made up the program, and made copies at work, but I'm not sure - he was only 18 years old in 1886!
Vortex of deliciousness.
Dawn hinting as I get onto the highway first thing this morning.
20 minutes later and about 13 miles southeast, it's coming in strong.
"Red sky in morning, sailor take warning?"
yeah that is a weird morning sky. Or maybe I'm half asleep during my morning commute and don't notice. But I only recall seeing sunsets like that.
Formal night on our Disney Cruise in September:
Tennyson didn't want his picture taken.
^Soulless Gingers seldom do.
My great-grandparents sitting outside the house I would later grow up in, in Frankling Lakes, NJ.
This is Henry Bush and Ann-Jeanette Demarest Bush.
They're my father's mother's parents.
^The view across the street today is a development full of McMansions on half-acre lots.
The only really light moment during the church shooting coverage here last month was the fact that a couple of friendly cats showed up and hung out around the media and law enforcement. This one was so social with people that even got its own #NewsCat hashtag.
If I had ever made it to the scene I had every intention of bringing that cat home, but I never did. Requests for any of my journalist friends to bring me that cat were unfruitful.
It's been a little more than a year since our cat went missing and I've really been wanting one, so my wife's anniversary "present" to me was "permission" to get one (she dislikes pets in general).
So I got this guy off of Craigslist.
I call him Edward R. Purrow. Ed for short.
great looking cat! Classic tabby - we have one of those and she's very mellow but can be coaxed into playing occasionally. Whip-smart though - getting her into the cage to see the vet is an exercise in frustration to say the least!
Plastic kit made by a small model company (one guy working nights!!), who wanted to revive the spirit of Aurora. He only lasted a few years and came out with maybe a dozen kits, before he had to get back to concentrating on his job.
If you don't know the movie, look for it, it's a hoot. Basically a British Godzilla, with a twist.
