Pioneer Woman

Because nothing says Pioneer Woman more than fake mason jars with holes in the lids for straws.

Portrait or Landscape?

We were at a hotel in Dallas recently and saw the following.

Ali saw me looking oddly at the picture and commented that she thought it was hung wrong and should be landscape orientation.

Portrait or landscape? You decide.

Workout While Washing

It has been a while since I stayed at a Candlewood Suite. The one in Fort Wayne always seemed a little tired and often showed signs (teeth marks) from prior dogs who were in the room. We were in Texas and headed to Wichita Mountain Wildlife Refuge when we stopped for the evening at a Candlewood. The chain offers a combination of laundry and workout room in the same area. It makes for a great reason to get a little exercise while waiting for the wash.

The cross country team ahead gave them a big round of applause.

Yellow Submarine

I was in Gowanda on my way to a late afternoon hike in Zoar Valley. This yellow submarine was sitting in the side lot of a yard on a side street. I find the thought of being in this unit while under water terrifying. I was also surprised to find this submarine has a history. It made the news years ago when a neighbor sold the submarine to a third party for $300. It appears to have received a nose job since the theft.

And our friends are all on board
Many more of them live next door
And the band begins to play

We all live in a yellow submarine
Yellow submarine, yellow submarine
We all live in a yellow submarine
Yellow submarine, yellow submarine

No Selfies

It's a bit sad that people need to be told not to take selfies with the bears.

I Don't Think This Is a Good Idea.....

There can be twenty pounds in each of those propane tanks in the cage. With as many as eighteen tanks possible, I would never expect someone to pick up a twenty pound extinguisher and put out a fire at this location. This Dollar General in NE Pennsylvania appears to think it might be a good idea.

I Took the Challenge... and Won

Our room at the Grand Canyon had a sand timer for the five-minute shower challenge. I took the challenge an beat the timer. Usually I don't spend much time in the shower unless I am trying to free up my joints. Despite a long hike on the south rim train the day before, victory was mine. I am just a wee bit competitive. ;)

Save the Manuals

Finally, a cause we can fully support. My first two cars were automatics. After that, I saw the light and never looked back.

Mermaid Topiary

Spotted in Siloam Springs, Arkansas...

Hopefully her hand will grow in.
