This And That


VARIOUS THINGS SEEN AND SNAPPED DOWN HERE IN ST. PETE



I saw this whilst going to Publix for groceries.  It was parked right next to me. And, no, I don't have a clue. 




Kenzie took these pics of Norah for you wildlife lovers out there.




Central Avenue is the art center of town.  Consider it the Seminary Street of St. Pete, only many blocks long.  They have several art galleries that I like to check out every so often and saw this, um, modern looking steampunkt sculpture in the window of one of them.



This wasn't St. Pete but rather further south in an outlet mall outside Ellenton, Florida.  Parking is tough in this very popular outside mall, and it is even tough when jerks like tis guy parks in such such an inconvnentit spot for everyone else.  There is plenty of room on down where he could have easily been out of the way, but I guess he just wanted to create chaos.  





Spotted along Central Avenue, this van is a one-of-a-kind trip, with decals covering about every square inch.




These guys were painting a very vibrant red-orange on a new shop about to open up.  Ah, the joys and fears of creating a new business.  This part, the painting and decorating has to be the easiest aspect to it all.



This is a Lamborghini.  They cost a lot of money and go very fast.





Drew and I and clan were going to the firing range at a place called Bill Jackson's down here and parked in front was this mint 1976 Buick Limited.  


And as I was about to head-on inside after my shot, I noticed the front license plate.  Good old Land of Lincoln '76 plates.  Tears damn near came to my eyes.

Flying has not lost its charms on me.  I am still, after all, a small town kid and the thrill of it all is still just as real and palpable as the first time I climbed on board a plane.  That was back in my graduate days.  I took an Ozark flight from Denver to Waterloo and then to Peoria.  One could say that after flying with them each day since has been a gift.  Today I fly Allegiant and while they are at the bottom of safety maintenance and mechanical failure, no flight has ever crashed.  Knock on wood!  Where's some wood!  I can't find wood!  OK, I found a window sill.




These are the fields, small towns and by-ways of the Midwest.  This flight, taking back to Kitschland from a few weeks up North in June was one of those late afternoon, night flights that are pretty awesome.







The cloud formations confirmed the cockpit announcement that there was some foul weather ahead.  I tried to get some lightening in the clouds but never saw any.  The ride was probably as bumpy as I've ex…
