09.29.10 Psyched about Ike!

Guess whose second grade class talked about Kansas native President Eisenhower today? (Those crazy forehead tattoos have something to do with Avatar and not Ike.)

I often struggle with what to post as the picture of the day and I cheat and direct you to another one that I really like. What's not to love about this pic?

09.25.10 chili cookoff

It's a holy hat! This image is just one of an ongoing series I like to call "Pictures from behind the throne." Coffee table book will be out next November.

09.24.10 the women of aviation

This is Molly with USAF Thunderbirds Pilot Kristin Hubbard (her handle is "Mother" as in Mother Hubbard). Molly was supposed to fly with her but her flight was delayed until Saturday after a random washer was found inside the plane. They want to find out where that came from and replace it.

We were able to hang out while the Thunderbirds did a practice run for this weekend's air show.

09.22.10 RAWK!

My new sticks arrived just in time for Saturday's gig. I broke two pairs at Zoobilee and I need to be prepared for the chili cookoff. I was hoping my fancy new gold throne would be here, but it's on backorder for a few weeks.

09.19.10 a personal record

I killed three mosquitos today while taking a brief walk in the wild. This was the first and juiciest one. YUCK!

09.18.10 the artist

The artist (at left) creates another portrait after completing the fabulous one of me (at right). Her body of work is quite extensive.

09.17.10 the juggler

Yep, my man has many skills. This is a still from a video I shot using my new impressive $129 HD video camera. It's similar to the Flip HD but I went with the Kodak because it has a microphone input, meaning I can get decent sound if I plug in a mic.

09.13.10 WOW!

How did this happen?

09.12.10 oh yes she cancan

The always lovely Erin Craddock has been sporting a new cancan skirt these days. Its shadow is shown on the sidewalk in front of Gloria dei Lutheran Church where the Mudbugs played a very fun matinee performance. Here's the dress in all its glory taken at Zoobilee.

09.11.10 Sparkly

I jazzed up my shirt just in time for Zoobilee with some fabric glue and lots of glitter. It held up really well, but my friend who advised me on the process told me to NEVER wash it. Now I need to go buy a bottle of Febreeze.

09.09.10 fair time again

This carnie offered up an unsolicited strip tease for me. I came close to putting it in the video, but decided I better not.

09.05.10 Blessing of the bell

I had fun climbing up into the bell tower at St. Patrick's church to watch the bishop bless the bell. I'm thinking his microphone was probably never blessed because, unfortunately, the people inside the church couldn't hear the prayer.
