People Out and About

It’s both nice to see people at the park and not. Should people be doing this? Are they not taking this dangerous situation seriously? I shouldn’t be be out either.

That’s a bit of snow atop 6500+ foot Gass Peak far away.


I’ve spent many decades working in the auto industry in different capacities. Honestly, this is the ugliest damn grille or front fascia I’ve ever seen on a car. Somehow it reminds me of The Robot on a favorite old TV show long ago. Danger Will Robinson! Do not purchase this car!!


I don’t thing that title is an actual English word but here are some things for you to ponder during your lock down. Are we all having fun yet?


Why do peanuts float in a regular coke and sink in a diet coke.
Go ahead and try it…..

I used to eat a lot of natural foods until I learned that most people die of natural causes.

How important does a person have to be before they are considered assassinated instead of just murdered?

Why do you have to “put your two cents in”… but it’s only a “penny for your thoughts”? Where’s that extra penny going?(taxes)

Once you’re in heaven, do you get stuck wearing the clothes you were buried in for eternity?

What disease did cured ham actually have?

How is it that we put man on the moon before we figured out it would be a good idea to put wheels on luggage?

Why is it that people say they “slept like a baby” when babies wake up like every two hours?

If a deaf person has to go to court, is it still called a hearing?

Why are you IN a movie, but you’re ON TV?

Why do people pay to go up tall buildings and then put money in binoculars to look at things on the ground?

Why do doctors leave the room while you change??? They’re going to see you naked anyway.

Why is “bra” singular and “panties” plural?

Why do toasters always have a setting that burns the toast to a horrible crisp, which no decent human being would eat?

Can a hearse carrying a corpse drive in the carpool lane?

If the professor on Gilligan’s Island can make a radio out of a coconut, why can’t he fix a hole in a boat?

If corn oil is made from corn, and vegetable oil is made from vegetables, what is baby oil made from?

If electricity comes from electrons, does morality come from morons?

Why do the Alphabet song and Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star have the same tune?

Why did you just try singing the two songs above?

Did you ever notice that when you blow in a dog’s face, he gets mad at you, but when you take him for a car ride, he sticks his head out the window?


Staying In, Staying Home

Here’s a small piece of my self-imposed quarantine: End Table Items. Two way radios, my phone and some water. Oh, and a weather station. To my left is the TV controller, an iPad and the MacBook Pro. So this is being stuck at home eh? Obviously things could be so much worse.

Three Locked

A few years ago I worked at a U Haul location. What’s going on in this image? Your renters contract states a customer can place only one lock on their unit. Obviously this joker can’t read. Each morning I would take a walk around the entire interior and exterior of the building. One reason for that was to look for what you see here.

I placed the third lock on the unit to basically force the customer to come to the main office. Hah. All they need do is remove the second lock. I also came across units where it was obvious that the customer has been sleeping in the unit which is a huge no no!

Another customer had two units side by side that he abandoned, leaving me to clean all the crap out and haul it to the big steel bins. Thanks a lot asshole. I also had to clean a unit within twenty four hours after a customer moves out per company policy. And baby that’s a hot job here in the desert in a non air conditioned building.

It may not seem like it but the job wasn’t all that bad, what was bad was the pay. Another two bucks per hour would have been sufficient considering the labour involved and the summer heat as well as dealing with cleaning up after pig customers. In the end I left the job because of the shitty disrespectful management.

That’s a very common reason why employees leave a job in my life’s experiences. The soon to be wife was a really sweet woman. What I would not continue to put up with was a man younger than me who was retired military constantly talking at, through and down to me at any opportunity. That’s abusive. And he was a few years younger than I. That matters.

I hope you’ve never had to deal with asshole management in your work experiences!!

The Idiot

This video is about two years old, taken at the Calico Basin parking area. It’s quite obvious this idiot is on some serious drugs! And I certainly don’t blame the woman for having an attitude!


You read that title correctly! The other day in the grocery store I was hunting for Angel Hair noodles but guess what? Every. Single. Box. of noodles were gone except this one box of Wheat Lasagna noodles. What a crock. Without going on a rant about this I will say that cooking these noodles took much more time than Angel Hair noodles of course.

Is it any good? Well, I’ve never been a fan of Wheat noodles but they do work. It’s rather time consuming to break up the large, flat noodles as they very slowly soften in the 212+ degree water. This ‘dish’ is edible but eating the thicker noodles is an odd texture and takes a bit more chewing. Yuk. But it’s decent and filling. Honestly, I am grateful for this Lasagnaghetti.

It doesn’t look too delectable but it’s decent and keeps you going. 🙏🏻

Early One Morning…

I stood looking out the kitchen window and saw this view. I photographed it of course. And I wondered how a photo blog is going to survive when the photographer is hunkered down in his house riding out the storm? I hope you will understand that I’ve got to pull images from gigs of older photography I’ve taken, my friends. I believe in playing it safe, taking the safe route. Let’s all be safe, stay home if you can as much as possible. I despise this situation too.

These photos were taken early today…

Rainbow Road

This photo looks decent, I had my doubts about it. I’d like to have more applications to further work with it though. It’s the cost and the very complicated ways with some apps like Photoshop that stop me from spending the cash.
