Slowly Returning To Earth

This rotting picnic table has sat in this place for at least ten years now. It’s on my folk’s property in Michigan, I’ve ridden snowmobiles past this thing years ago! Another ten years may see it vanish back into the earth from whence it came. The color version was kind of boring, hence the grayscale conversion. It was a sunny 100F today, perfect!

All Of My Life

Some of you may know about my love for the Star Trek movie series, it goes all the way back to the mid-’60s and the Star Trek original series, or TOS. Each new movie that came out was an exciting time, the movies got better and better with new technologies.

I’ve seen them all several times by now but there is the Star Trek Picard series that I’ve never seen because it’s on that damned CBS, I don’t like that network! Maybe someday I’ll catch it and get caught up. Anyway, I’ve collected dozens of Star Trek photos from various sources, here are just a few of those photos. I have zero copyright…

I should add that I find myself in conflict when it comes to space travel. I am not a fan of space programs at this point, not because humans shouldn’t be traveling in space, but because of the billions of dollars spent on this when humans everywhere on Earth are in deep need of help. Can we as a species please take care of ourselves first?

The Old Days

Do you remember these items? I sure do and this is a great way to date yourself too. My folks took my sister and me to the drive-in several times. Sister and I wore our onesies pajamas and would run to the playground before the movie started. My mother had an electric frypan just like the one in the photo, yum!

I recall mom slicing hard-boiled eggs with that slicer. And canned crackers, yes! Today, it’s just paper and plastic wrapping your very breakable crackers. Did you have a 78rpm record player? I remember using one to play oldies from Paul Revere and The Raiders as an example. Nope, I’m no spring chicken!
