Sunday Bag o’ Birds

Five years ago I photoblogged the birth of two hummingbirds. The mother had built her nest on a storage hook hanging from a support beam underneath our patio overhang.

Mini-Gypsy Tour 1/2014 Photoblog

If I can afford it, there’ll be another motorcycle tour this year, hence the “1″ in the title. Mini-Gypsy Tour 2/2014 will involve either Sturgis or Four Corners; haven’t decided yet. The first tour of 2014 was a more modest affair, a six-day round-robin from Tucson to Flagstaff, Las Vegas, Zion National Park, and back.

Mini-Gypsy Tour the Next

The journalist, Caleb Hannan, set out to write about a radical new putter taking the [...]

Tribal Identity (Updated)

Wait and Ye Shall See

Of course the press will go right on reporting that the Hollywood Stuntz biker gang beat up an innocent motorist as part of its on-going terror campaign against decent god-fearing normals. So what else is new? [...]

Friday Bag o’ Rage

At last, my face is getting back to normal. The dermatologist removed a small basal cell skin cancer from my forehead Monday. I applied ice as recommended that day and the next, but Wednesday when I woke my right eye was swollen almost shut. Same thing again Thursday morning. Today, though, the swelling is almost [...]
