The Zeppelin Zoo

A very word intense, but insanely cool video from over at Joe's website.

Camping at Standing Indian

I spent the past weekend camping with my parents in North Carolina.

My dad and I are dwarfed by this giant poplar tree near Standing Indian Campground.

Meanwhile, my mom held down the fort, reading by the campfire.

They had a nice riverfront site, and I had the one right next door...very convenient for joint meals!

break in follow up

Well, I was wrong. The burglars did get into the main garage. While getting ready for my trip this weekend, I discovered that in fact they did steal both of my bicycles (the old frame only, and my newer one that I usually ride), and also the weed eater is gone.

Not a happy camper!

As I was cutting grass this evening, I went around to the back side of my area that I rarely go....and what did I find?

A big hole that someone knocked in the wall sometime in the past 2 weeks!

The burglar had kicked through the exterior wall and went into the rear storage room, which fortunately was just full of mostly junk stuff.

The only thing that I could tell that was taken was an old bicycle that was in there. Fortunately, nothing that I will miss....but now I have to re-do the entire back end of the garage. Grrrrr!

I put up a temporary piece of plywood that I had, but will have to go buy the regular wood siding and do it right this week. Lucky that I am on furlough this week to get it done!
