Standing For The National Anthem

Fuck that douchebag Colin Colon Kaepernick who refused to stand during the National Anthem.

Here is a real man standing for it, a man who is at least 100 times the man Kaepernick will ever be.

All the best,

A Little Gratitude Would Have Been Nice...

...but instead I got this graceful pose after bringing Brendan to Alaska and specifically to see Mt. McKinley (aka: Denali). Anyway, I like it, it's one of my favorites pics from the trip.

I think I asked him to smile for the camera.

Lucky for us that we got to see it later on that same day once those clouds cleared. Those mountains under the clouds were about 20 miles away. Denali was about 40 miles from us, yet it dwarfs the closer peaks.

It went from this in the mid-morning to...

...this in the late afternoon.
The dark parts may look like part of Denali but they are not, in fact they
are mountains that were about 20 miles closer to us than was Denali. The
highest snowcapped peak is Mt. McKinley or Denali as it is called now.

Not smiling yet but not flipping me the bird either!

Posting these pics now because I realized I forgot to post most of our pics, from our Alaska trip, as I had planned back in the spring. So, I will be posting one or three every now and again to make up for it.

All the best,

Missing Arizona

I miss the Gila Monsters

And the many other lizards


and the darned noisy and huge Colorado River Toads coming out after a summer's rain hundreds of miles from the river


and the desert flowers


and the magnificent sunsets

and Brendan coming to visit, and us going to Tombstone, while I was out there for 4 months for work

and even the tarantulas

We need a vacation out that way fairly soon and may have to set our sights on it for next summer.

All the best,
Glenn B

Giving A Fuck

Maybe it's best that way; after all, how can you evenly distribute your fucks in a world without moderation!

All the best,
