Eight Hundred Ninety-Nine

In spite of what my internal dashboard says, this my 899th published post. And as this is my 899th published post, as well as my first unofficial day back from my short vaca, I thought it would be a good idea to blow off the dust bunnies at my picture blog and use it for a month or so.

To achieve that goal, I spent this past Saturday (10/13) taking a rather semi-short walk around my neighborhood carrying my trusty $20 cheapy (and very dependable) dual video/picture camera. The end result of this was not 27 eight by ten color glossy photos with the circles and arrows, 'cause you know I'm not Officer Obie, but 21 jpeg pics of unknown original size.

So for the next month, I will regale you not with Tales of Brave Ulysses and how his naked ears were tortured by sirens sweetly singing, but with pictures (and captions) of autumn around Cedar Mountain. 'Cause you know, I's like bragging about Yello Bear's mountain of honey shots.

Autumn Near Cedar Mountain, part 1


  1. Why if you are talking about camera pics does the link take me to Arlo Guthrie's site?

  2. Joe: Thanks.

    It's good to be back. I have a much longer post on tap for tomorrow that elaborates just a little bit on my absence.

    Bearman: "Alice's Restaurant Massacree" is one of my favorite story songs and it gets played somewhere on the radio here every Thanksgiving.

    Most people don't really know the lyrics to the song or Arlo Guthrie for that matter, so I thought it would be interesting to link up a lyric snippet to his website.

    The song itself is about 19 minutes long and a movie was actually made based on the song as well.

  3. That looks like real autumn - we're just soaked ;)

  4. M: So I saw while watching the Seattle/New England football game yesterday.


Go on, give me your best shot. I can take it. If I couldn't, I wouldn't have created this wonderful little blog that you decided to grace with your presence today.

About that comment moderation thingy: While yes, it does say up above I can take it, I only use it to prevent the occasional miscreant from leaving thoughtless and/or clueless comments.

So remember, all of your comments are greatly appreciated and all answers will be given that personal touch that you come to expect and enjoy.
