Joanie Loves Chachi - at 3800 Feet

Was climbing a trail, and found this park bench at its peak at around 3,800 feet. This is be where the local kids go to proclaim their 4EVER love.

This mural is of an engine with Southern emblazoned, but I'm not sure which one it means. Norfolk Southern maybe... (where is Gail when I need her?) Taken somewhere along US-70

Tony Toy

What is this toy? A co-worker (who has never been to K) has this on his desk. It looks like a top with its spinning base, but it just falls over and doesn't even come close to working. It's heavy plastic so it was never a box insert. If you know, let me know.

Jet Plane Signs

I come across those little signs on top of the post all up and down the Tennessee highways. The first few times I saw it, there was a smaller sign just underneath that said "Airport". So, without looking I associated the top sign with planes.

Okay, so now try looking cross-eyed at that sign for a moment....

Does it look like it might be a puffed chested Pan Am plane as it is in flight over a city as its going to the right? The tail is sorta the nose of the plane? The body and beak are the right-side wing? Okay, fine! It's what I see, anyway.

Tipping the Scales

Logged into my gym and pulled a weight chart for the past year. Since quitting smoking of tobacco 3 years ago my weight has tended upwards, exactly what this skinny boy needs. When I get a chance I'll put up the body fat chart showing 13% or less recently, plus my blood pressure coming down.

It's great being big and strong and healthy!

Jomo Lager

It's a good beer. Great cold but with the right heaviness for a dark beer.

Cleaning Day

It's cleaning day today and the focus is on wet stuff. Washing sheets, shower curtains, scrub brush the kitchen floor and all of the bathroom with lots of suds.
