Lousy Eclipse Photo Using a Crummy Pinhole Device

As the appointed hour approached, TSG grabbed the first piece of heavy-stock paper we could find, punched a hole in it with a mini-screwdriver, and went outside to grab this image:

Not too impressive. But...take note of the piece of heavy-stock paper that we used. Ha!

Okay, now that the whole 2017 eclipse thang is over we can move on to the next super-hyped-up cultural event.

Uppa(?) The Coast We Must Go seems the real line is "Off to the coast", but TSG likes our ms-remembered version of the lyrics better. As in the images represent a day's journey "uppa" the coast from Malibu to Pismo.

Probably Not GWB Strumming A Guitar In An Electronic Shooting Gallery

Readers may recall our recent post featuring Jack, Teddy, Ronnie and Co at Scheels in Nevada.

 One of the other "attractions" at the super-duper sporting goods emporium is this backwoods-themed shooting gallery.

Now we're not sure if they ran out of room and ended up with an extra
ex-prez or what, but the guy on the porch here sure looks a lot like a former decider-in-chief to us.

Return To Meow Wolf

Here's a hastily cobbled-together set of pics (complete with the usual duplicates tossed in for good measure) from TSG's visit to Santa Fe's avant-garde art collective founded by George RR Martin. It's truly a spot that you have to see in person to really appreciate.

Nine Presidents And A Ferris Wheel

In America there is no greater honor than to become president...and then be memorialized as a cheesy wax-museum-esque mannequin overlooking an indoor Ferris Wheel in a sporting goods mega-mega store  (Scheels in Sparks NV). Who knows...maybe Donald Trump's dummy will take a spot among his fellow presidents one day.

Trout For Lunch @ Jones Hole

Pretty cool bit of raven behavior seen today on our expedition to Jones Hole Fish Hatchery.
Please excuse mediocre image quality--pics were taken from pretty far away at maximum zoom.

Your One-Stop Disc Golf Shoppe In Grand Junction

For all your frisbee golf needs, stop in at Triple Play Records @ 530 Main. 
This is the only record store/disc golf emporium we've encountered, but it seems like a good combo in this particular locale (there are several nice courses in the vicinity along with a University Of Colorado campus just blocks away).
