They know how to make grape juice. They really do.
Maybe they could give these guys some lessons? Can't complain too much it's only $2.89 at Aldis and will put one heck of a shine on dress shoes!

I didn't know you were such a oenophile, Jim.
Nothing but the finest for you and Jean, eh?

I didn't even have to look that word up...but I did anyhow to see what it means. You can't say I'm not thrifty.....if it all tastes like shoe polish, and it does, why waste money! If you swig down 8-10 ounces just before bedtime you will sleep great........and wake up with bad breath.

I buy wine for the names and the drawings on the front.....and have found it works out pretty well. That frog is a great drawing, rivaling some of my own famous drawings, and the wine is no worse than that Leaning Lizard Shiraz that is also effective at delivering sweet dreams.

Just a hop, skip and a hump.


Another 1,000 miles and you could be at Mount Pilchuck, right outside my backdoor.


Nice pic, Racer! Love it when Mother Nature provides a natural wind tunnel display of the air currents...

After 5 years and 800,000 miles I could write a book about dipsticks that linger near big trucks and others that tailgate. Many times these Mensa members suffer the consequences when a tire comes apart.
Last March, when we were on our way to Rupert's, we were on I-20 just East of Abilene. I was to the left of, and slightly behind a semi. It was one of the few days while we were there that it was warm enough to have the windows down but I digress.
A tire on the left side of the trailer blew. I don't know whether it was an inside or outside, front or rear axle, because I was too busy trying to find a place to pull over and change my underwear.

Thanks Jim!




And yes, it caught my eye when I saw the currents in the clouds. I only wish the light would have been better. Here is a panorama I put together from the same set of shots.





I found it fascinating how the clouds illustrated the flow of air in the atmosphere, for several miles.

Imagine how it is when you are in the truck and a drive tire blows. Happened to me a half dozen times, and every single time gave me a start like no other.


I was in Tonkawa, Oklahoma getting fuel when another driver failed to clear the concrete pier at the end of the fuel island. About jumped out of my skin.

It is 4 degrees tonight. This is St. Louis, not Sioux Falls.

I think tomorrow will be a good day for traditional Beef Stew.

Not that I miss the Ewes, but there's not a lot else going on here on Sundays.
