Uncovering Captain Crab's Life

Some say that the movie "Captain Ron" was based partially on my life. I can't attest to that, but it sounds like a good line to me. Well, here's a short clip from the movie. You decide.

Dirty Steak Knives

Brandon, South Dakota, 9:17 pm:

A wonderful time was had tonight with K8 and Steve the Pilot Guy. Great food (except for the chicken in the taco salad) and some FANTASTIC conversation (discourse as the Pilot would say). It was also a wonderful day to snap a few pictures.

A Hereford with horns!

A muskrat was kind enough to take this for me.

Assorted Comments

These comments were taken from a guestbook on a website (to remain unnamed here) that PJ used to maintain, back when I received the Captain Crab moniker.

"I do believe that this Captain Crab fellow is an authentic person, but are his thoughts always that way? He seems to be a mite disturbed at times."
"I have a few quotes from captain crab you could use. Just kidding, they probably aren't suitable and he'd make me walk the plank."
"..this guy is actually very talented."

PJ's Cat (formerly the Crab's cat)

Skittles was sitting on her chair today watching the swallows. I think she would rather be outside!

If you are Dakota Sioux, you may soon be able to go to Minnesota legally again.

After the Dakota Conflict of 1862, President Lincoln signed a law that sent the Dakota's packing. Trouble is, it's still on the books!

From the Star Tribune, here's the story.
In other exciting Small Beverage State* news:

The always exciting Ms. Bachmann is in the news again!

The Minnesota Independent has recently learned that Minnesota Teen Challenge returned the donation ($9,200) to Bachmann two weeks later.

“We didn’t want to be involved if it was dirty money,” Rich Scherber, executive director of Minnesota Teen Challenge, told MnIndy.

Captain Crab's Travels

A few pictures of the past week or two.

Cute couple.

Cats like luggage more than tunnels.

Drive in liquor stores. Bloody fantastic idea!

I love churches, although I don't go inside of them often.

Bloody Little Bastards!

Why do I always take pictures of domesticated animals you ask? Because wild ones, like the canvasback that was supposed to be in the picture below, won't be still while I snap a picture!

The five cows that are lying down are baby sitting nineteen calves while the other cows graze.

Fun in Florida

Florida's politicians never ceases to amaze me.

When you're a Miami-Dade commissioner, danger lurks at every ribbon-cutting.

Just ask Jose ''Pepe'' Diaz. His job is so perilous that he often leaves his county-leased Cadillac Escalade parked at home and, instead, has a gun-toting sergeant-at-arms deliver him to official functions.

From the Miami Herald

How to Win the Kentucky Derby

Buy a gelding for $9,500, add one New Mexico trainer, drive 21 hours, put a great jockey on the horse, lay back and then:

Friday Pictures

I couldn't help but take this: a Studebaker Avanti (probably a 1963 model)

The wheels are supposed to be under the wagon.

Captain Crab's Important Announcement

This is written for fun. At my age I don't really like a lot of controversy. That is the reason I deleted a previous post that linked to a story on CNN.

Any questions?
