Good Luck!

This was shot ten minutes ago.
The moth is huge, and I had serious doubts as to our gecko's ability to catch the thing.
I was cheering him on, and right after this photo the moth landed and the gecko grabbed it's head.
Rather than continue shooting through the sliding glass door I went outside to get closer but this startled the lizard and he dropped his dinner.
Sorry, little dude.

There's One At Every Wedding

Honest to God, this jackass tried to follow the guests into the chapel.

A hilarious moment, caught on a Bayer Matrix.

Her name is Clementine and she works at the Enchanted Springs Ranch, site of a wedding we attended last week.

Made In Chinana

To all the recent news of poisonous pet food, Fisher-Price toys covered in toxic lead paint, and half the products at WalMart being utter shit, I dedicate this post.

Get my title?
See what I did there?

You may say "But surely a local company made the sign".
Yes, but who approved it, or submitted the copy in the first place?
And stop calling me Shirley.

Northern Tools Gets Funny

I love it when a company gets a sense of humor. This world is too damn serious most of the time, and when a laugh comes from somewhere that's completely unexpected it's appreciated.

Northern Tools™ isn't Craftsman® by any stretch, but they have a ton of useful stuff at affordable prices.
If you need a certain tool for one or two side-jobs that aren't part of your daily routine, why bother with the most-durable, most-featured, most-expensive versions when you can save a few dozen dollars and still make your way through the project successfully?
And if you can get a laugh or two while shopping there, all the better.

In their catalog I noticed a padded camo toilet seat that attaches to the trailer hitch on your truck.
"Hey Billy-Bob, where's Jimmy-Wayne?"
"Oh, he went around behind his pickup and I never did see him after that. Maybe you should go check on him."

The Last One?

I sure hope so.
This time I have help, and it seems to be working.

'93 Prelude

Some teenager pried the rear Honda H off my car. Until I wash the car and cover the holes with a sticker, I put a magnet from an old harddrive over them. With all the rain we've had, my trunk is now damp and kinda stinky.

Here's a test to see if a phone camera's shutter is slow enough to let spinning wheels blur while driving--it is.
The timing belt broke today (most likely), so the car is parked just outside my neighborhood and I miss it already.
Tomorrow it'll get towed across town and we'll see what's wrong.

Maybe it's just a coincidence but when I try to imagine what kind of mailbox the band Korn has in front of their studio or group home or whatever, this is what I see in my mind.
So I'm going to believe that this is Korn's mailbox and you can't stop me.
They use Gateway computers running ProTools, right?
