Hard Working Men


It is no wonder why crime has been falling across the country when we have overweight motorcycle cops with cellphone cameras.

Big Trucks are Cool



Oshkosh, you crazy bunch of bastards.  You make the coolest most fantastic trucks.  Vroom vroom!

Enjoy, jon

So Exclusive



And that’s where it is.  The gatekeeper to awesomeness of the snow dump lives in this mighty castle. 

Enjoy, jon

That means not you.


Do you have a permit to enter the snow dump? No? I didn’t think so.  What made you think you were good enough to go to the snow dump anyway?  Don’t you know only the most snowtastic can go to the snow dump.  That’s right, you need to be snowtastic. 

Enjoy, jon

Oh Yeah.


You could just leave it in giant uncovered piles.  Certainly cheaper in the short run.

Enjoy, jon

Railroad Ties


A flower growing from the rotting remains of a rotting railroad system.

Is it Spelled that way?



Absente, eh?  Would have figured it was a th.  Is that my Wisconsin accent again, I should probably look it up.

Urban Flora


And a return to the city.  Our trip to camp was short, a return to the downtown was always in the cards.  Fortunately, blooming flowers  greeted us on our next walk.

Fungi Strikes Again


Always growing.  Always rotting away the lumber.  Cyclical and all that.

A Tree Falls in the Woods


Pretty sure it made a sound.  The little mini trees are a delight.  Every part of the forest not shadowed by the canopy is full of them.

The Climax Forest


A source of many jokes, but the description of the adult years of the forest.  This is what northern Wisconsin is all about.

Pitcher Plant


Walking on the bog reclaiming the lake.  A pitcher plant open and ready to eat.

Trip to Camp


A glorious trip to revisit the fun of camp.  Sailing, archery, hiking, and more.

Vegetable Ranch, oh no.


Only the Fruit Ranch.  Only.  Don't even try you blasted vegetable people.

Pinched between two abandoned train tracks, this odd shaped monster remains empty itself.

Imposing in a Picture


Much smaller in real life.  Just another half abandoned warehouse in my neighborhood.

Along the Tracks


The former Brass Light Gallery building.  Down the road, along the tracks.

Bus Ride


A familiar view for me.  Generally more crowded, but this is a good approximation.

Picture of a Sailboat


Instead of from one.   Best race of the season.  I think we won by 3 hours (corrected).

General Lee


Every time I see this picture I think of how close to perfect it almost was.  Oh, blond mullet sporting, green wife beater wearing, southern cliche', why couldn't you have walked slower?  Why?

The Lost State of Franklin


Look it up. Lost state. Jonesborough was the capital.



Closed on Mondays. And, from what we hear, Sundays too.
