Blondie Knows How To Relax!

I was watching Blondie as she rolled and twisted about on the chair, she struck this pose while probably half asleep. I had just enough time to get the photo of this sweet baby! My dad and I met up with a couple of his buddies for lunch in Capac, Michigan where I saw the rusted truck and had to get a shot of the rotten, rusted-out quarter panel. That’s what happens when you live within the Rust Belt!

And, the cute fella in the little black car is so cool! The photo of the wood is looking toward the big shed where the old tractors I used to use to brush hog the trails and fields are housed. I miss those days!

In-Flight Photography

The iPhone took these photos as the Nikon was stuffed in the suitcase in the overhead bin. Not super good photos but you do get a lovely view of one of our beautiful Great Lakes! It’s always nice to see these big beautiful freshwater lakes again, if not the largest on Earth they are very massive and beautiful.

I totally enjoy flying and have no fear of it. These aircraft are constructed to take the punishment of powerful turbulence and very hard landings, both of which were experienced traveling to and from Michigan this time.

I’m Back

Not me, you! It’s nice to be back home in the valley even though I came back to the usual windstorm and can’t even see my beautiful mountains this morning. This was such a fun trip home to see my family! It rained all day one day but it was still a wonderful trip.

I took 1.63Gig of photos, probably split between the iPhone and the Nikon, this set isn’t so good but it’s all from the Nikon. I am not used to so much humidity in the air or the damn skeeters flying around everywhere which I was stung by. Much more to come so I hope that you will stick around, friends!

Hover over each photo, it should have a brief description.

iPhone Magic

I made an oops when I mentioned that there were no more Seven Magic Mountain photos. These were snapped on the way back to the truck, the iPhone did a darn nice job, didn’t it? I’ve been getting my things packed up for tomorrow’s departure for Michigan, it will be so good to see my family!

Pig Lovers

Happy Sunday folks, I hope your weekend has been great. The pigs are my mothers, I brought them home to Las Vegas a couple of years ago, we miss you, momma. 99 degrees today, 100 degrees tomorrow. It’s safe to say that the summer heat is almost back!

Cops and Aliens

Two very silly photos in this post, the cop had a customer pulled over under an overpass along the 215 freeway, busted! The speed limit is 65, but many folks exceed that limit by a large margin. The alien sticker is on a pole where you enter and exit the long dirt path that leads to the Seven Magic Mountains. What can I say, man, I notice weird things and get the shot! It’s currently 88F at noon O’Clock, let’s get hot, baby! 😂🔥😎🌞🌴

What It Looks Like

In case you’ve wondered what Las Vegas looks like heading north on the 15 freeway, here you go. Be super careful driving anywhere in Vegas, the 15 freeway has plenty of accidents which sucks. I jumped off the 15 and picked up the 215 westbound which becomes the 215 northbound after a few miles. If you want to head up to Utah and further north, just stay on the 15. Honestly, I despise driving here with all of the dipshits who should surrender their driver’s license at the DMV and take the bus. Just being honest! My driving record is clean…

The Other Sunset Photo

I saved this photo for this morning, it could be a sunrise too but not in the western sky. A high of just 70 degrees is in the forecast for today, substantially cooler than the last few days but old sol will still be high in the sky. I’ll be out of town in a few days, heading home to Michigan and my family, yay!

Accidents and Fire Trucks

Those two photos are from today and honestly, I am surprised that there aren’t more accidents in Vegas. The firetruck must have got a call for help since the lights came on suddenly and the driver made a hard left turn. The other photos are from the other day in the Spring Mountains. It’s currently 72F degrees in the valley.

Wind Assault

Yesterday was just another windstorm but this one had some vicious gusts in it as the video shows. My previous post showed just how thick the dust was yesterday. Nothing is covered in a thick layer of sand this morning! Partly cloudy and 77 degrees are forecast for today, this latest storm pulled the daytime temperature down ten or so degrees. The photo was taken with the iPhone the other day, the video with the Nikon.
