Captain Crab's Thoughts from the Road

Tourist season sucks! The lovely family in the white car stayed in the left lane for as long as I was on I-29 in SW Iowa. They were passed on the right numerous times. One of the reasons I don't drive on multiple lane roads unless I have to!

Road construction season sucks!

Country & Western artists (questionable) should not be allowed to do covers of rock and roll songs!

The San Francisco Giants don't suck!

My 40th* High School Class Reunion was a blast!

*no bloody joke. 40 bloody years! And I still look great and act 18!

Jesus was a Miracle

The rest of us are simply products of biology........

Sturgis Bikers

It's summer and the motorcycle world has it's eyes on South Dakota, the town of Sturgis in particular. For this reason I am reposting a picture I took last year. Why would you do that, you ask? Two reasons:

1. Looking at the snow will help you feel a bit better about the warm weather we have been having.

2. Maybe seeing this biker, who didn't make it to Sturgis, will make ride a little safer on your trip to Sturgis.

Take the Long Way Home

This is for PJ, who decided to take the long way home from the Cities today. Hope she had a nice trip!

Tractors on Parade

There was a tractor ride through K-Town yesterday.
A tractor ride is much like a bicycle ride, only less work and a lot like a motorcyle ride, only slower.
And these folks don't drink as much beer.

Appaloosa Foal

It takes something special to get me to make a u-turn and take pictures.

This Sweetheart did.

If you don't find this foal darling, don't ever come back to this blog again!

"The Lodge", Forest City, Iowa

Update 2: k8, not only is the Goldfinch an Iowa bird, it is the Iowa State Bird!
Update: Thanks to k8 for the help. Look below.
I spent a couple of nights at "The Lodge" this week. The weather was perfect for taking some photographs. However, I have a couple of flowers that even pj can't identify. I need your help!

Coreopsis with fluted petals, ‘Jethro Tull’
