New Years Eve


This was one long ass day with 9 hours of driving but it was a nice drive.  I saw lots of pheasants, turkeys and even a couple eagles.  It would have been a lot better if I could have pulled over and taken pics of the wild animals but the Iowa Highway Patrol tends to frown on people doing that on the Interstate for some reason.  At least I’ll sleep good tonight/


Wednesday Evening


I like how the Christmas lights look in the snow and it is one of the nice things about having the white stuff covering the ground.  A few people I know have given me a hard time because I haven’t made the conversion to outdoor LED lights and Lord knows if I ever will.  I don’t like them.  Sure they save electricity and all that but they’re not warm and inviting to me like the old fashion C7 lights are.  It all takes me back when I was a kid growing up in southern Iowa.



2015 in review

The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2015 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 16,000 times in 2015. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 6 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.
