Cracker Barrel is one our favorite bacon stops.
Problem is... with roadways so wide these days and all the tinted windows, it's hard to see waves from 2 lanes, a wide median, and another lane over through those tinted windows! But ... I wave too...LOL!

I have a kite and ball of string. That's sort of flying, isn't it?

Well you are right: there's Yaks and then there's Yaks. Sue must have dynamite sense of humor to get on that Yak. And let you take her picture too!

Edit: I always thought it would be an adventure of a lifetime to visit Tibet, and then the Great Wall.

When "yak" appeared in a post for the first time I immediately thought of the "horned" variety and wondered if they could swim, lol. Mutant watercraft, indeed!

Now, how do I get the folding boat to any gathering?

Wait! If I could do that it would see water at least once.

Proceed with caution Wayne... My folding junk is off limits.

I'm just softening y'all up for my more "out there" stuff. (But thanks for the kind words). When I first started selling work I worried that no one would like it. After a while I realized that it was sort of a numbers game. Probably about 10% really loved my work, 40% liked it ok, 40% were indifferent to it and 10% thought it was crap. It all depended on their own way of seeing the world. Ever since the early days of photography there have been two basic groups. One group is into trying to make the photo as "realistic" a representation of the subject as possible with the sharpest lenses and techniques. The other sees the camera as a tool, much as a paintbrush or other media to interpret a more personal view of "reality". I'm firmly in the second camp. Of course today the pendulum has also swung the other way so that there are the photorealistic painters whose work it is almost impossible to tell from a detailed photograph!

I'm so proud of our little tribe of mutants! We have very good arteasts of pictorial representation, deep thinkers of ponderances, master mechanics of mutant machines, great chefs of masterful bacon creations. Why we even have inventors of creations like folding yaks, cultural art like rock doorstops, great mascot trainers etc. Where else could I confab with such an eclectic group and learn so much? Yes this group has fully mutated into a unique and colorful tribe unlike any other in the IRV kingdom. I am proud to a member of this growing family.

I got thoroughly drenched the time before last I was out. I panicked when I saw a cargo ship, just a little 450 footer, heading up the Columbia and decided I would be safer near the beach. WRONG strategy. In shallow water the rather large wake becomes waves that crashed over the bow.

Last time I was smarter and headed to deeper water when the 700 footer passed by. That was just like sitting on the front porch in da rockin' chair.

It is wise to plan on getting wet, especially if you feel the need for a cell phone -- "just in case". I now have a dry bag for my phone. Verizon has already replaced one this season when I forgot it was in my pocket.

All right mutants - kicking it up a notch.
Just set up my new gmail account.
RVM2.RVMdom

Time to start a real roster - I'm a MS Word user and can figure out how to format something that can be shared - and record our vitals and progress - show off art - pictures - whatever.

Any ideas for this can be sent to the ad above. If you don't want to be included don't forward anything on - over time I can get the date ya confessed your mutation and other stuff - or once formatted we can send it around for ya to fill out and pass on. I still haven't hired an intern - but there's no real hurry. Just seems like we mutants have legs - and this is going to stick. So why not take a run at it before there's a 100 of us. Lol.

Again - no need to contribute if you don't want to. But if ya do or have ideas... Send em on.

Btw - I have a friend request from someone - saw the other day when I actually looked at my laptop. Lol - next time I'm on it I will remember to click it.... Not an option on the iPhone.

Steve, I feel your pain about a non-magnetic refrigerator, not for decorative magnets, but for the magnet key that opens the Tot-Locks on our cabinet doors and drawers. Sena can and will open any door/drawer that hides food and/or interesting play thing behind it. Knives, ink pens, medication, undies, and shampoo all qualify as interesting. She can defeat ALL child locks except the magnetic variety.

But... The microwave surround and vent hoods are metal.
