Today’s Walking Photo: Oh, come on – like you’ve never been so tired that you just collapsed in the dirt.
(Mom’s all like, “Yes, I know you’re tired. We’re all tired. But your room’s not going to clean itself, mister. Now run along before I think of another chore for you to do.”)
Today’s Walking Photo: This is exactly how I found this mole trap, right along a neighborhood sidewalk. It was unsprung. Somebody’s not paying attention; today was the last day of school for a lot of kids and they’ll be running all over the place.
So I sprung it.
Fortunately my camera strap worked pretty nicely as a tourniquet, plus I do still have the other hand.
Today’s Walking Photo: Once I got them to stop worrying about the sky and the clouds and the scary birds, we managed to get a decent photo.
Today was largely taken up by a road trip to Eugene to collect my younger son and his belongings as his freshman year ended, and visit with the older son before he leaves for his summer internship. After our late lunch together, I convinced them to pose for me in light of the fact that I’d just paid to fill their bellies. Good guys. It’ll be fun to have the one home for the summer, but we’ll miss ol’ Shutterbug.
Today’s Walking Photo: Hey, back off – this could totally come in handy someday. You see that butter compartment? Completely intact. Pristine.
Today’s Walking Photo: Is it unreasonable of me to feel like I could use just a tad more detail here?
Today’s Walking Photo: I guess when you’re driving Hot Wheels all over the place, it’s just a matter of time until you need an Arson Investigator. In this light it almost looks like the interior of the car’s on fire.
Love these cars so much! Takes me back, man…
Today’s Walking Photo: Damn hippies, with their Volvos and their illuminated rooftop peace signs. You know what that’s for, right? That’s how they let all the other damn hippies know the coast is clear to come and infiltrate the neighborhood! The place smells of patchouli and granola.
Note the dog at lower right eyeing me warily. [Click image for larger version.]
Today’s Walking Photo: Whoa, man – somebody’s got us beat on flock size. Left us in the dust, in fact. However, one look at that fence and I can tell you they’ve got rats in their coop and we don’t. Hope they’re keeping an eye out for coyotes and cougars, too.
[Click the image twice for a better, full-size look at the livestock.]
Today’s Walking Photo: In a world full of negativity and conflict, it’s nice to see even the smallest reminders that people can be just plain decent and considerate even when they stand to gain nothing by it. Seeing today’s warm and sunny weather, these folks set up a water station in front of their house for the many people who walk, run and bike along this picturesque street (and their dogs – awwwwww). The sidewalk chalk on the table was a nice touch, allowing grateful passersby to show their appreciation. I just love this.
Today’s Walking Photo: U mad bro?
