Auto racing and Other Stupid Stuff

As I recall, this was some kind of thank you card from a young child in Montana when I did some sort of long-distance presentation. Below is just a goofy picture of me when I wthree months old.

Holy crap! I'm STILL terrorizing people!

And what does all this have to do with what you'd think I should be writing about? Well, it's simple, really. I was minding my own business on a lazy Sunday morning when a bunch of auto racing came on TV. It is so non-sensical.

Who cares that a bunch of machines can exceed incredible speeds? The American public. How shallow and easily entertained they are by the advances of technology!!
Below, that's my dear sister Lisa, her husband Darren and my former Damatian Jolson, the most stupid dog I've ever owned. This pic, I think, must have been taken many moons ago.

Before she went under my deck in winter to die.




These are pix of an emu taken at an Ontario wildlife park.


Below is NOT an emu. That is ME before this stroke.
BBelow THAT is just a pic of my bathroom.


Below THAT is a pic of one of my heroes.
And below THAT is just another pic of ME looking stupid.

  2. Auto Racing is the ultimate anti-Green "sport" innit? I have no idea what the appeal of watching cars go round and round is?

    As the BP rig spews millions of gallons of wasted oil into the shoreline of Louisiana, let us take a moment of silence, to remember all of the races that could have been.

  5. I find it ironic (and sad) that Memorial Day (tomorrow on Monday), is Nascar and auto racing's biggest day. Because somehow racing cars on Memorial Day is somehow honoring and remembering the many military servicemen and women who've died in battle to preserve and protect American freedom.

  6. Eroswings:I just don't get ANY American attraction to auto racing -- any more than I get the U.S. fascination with wars and rifles.

    Best part of auto racing is when a car catches on fire and you're the only photographer in the area. :)

  8. Chris, the first picture was of a card given to me by a young man that attended a hands-on conservation workshop I put on for area 5th and 6th graders when I lived and worked in Forsyth, MT. He had lost his "bude", a toy his mother had given him, in a large forested park and I searched for hours until I found it. Just thought you might want to know where the photo came from. **you don't have to post this**.
    Hugs,
    Laurie
