Friday morning! Here's pictures from the Muskegon lighthouse and then one from Michigan's Adventure for completeness.
The Muskegon Pier Lighthouse, viewed from the approach and the Coast Guard station that replaced the lighthouse keeper's house. In the background, the Muskegon Breakwater Lighthouse.
Us, at the top of the Pier Lighthouse. I manage for a change to open my eyes enough not to look like I'm asleep, which is why I look like a madman instead. Sorry
Panoramic view back to the Muskegon shoreline from the top of the Pier Lighthouse. (Looking out onto the Great Lakes was just water, and since it was near noon there wasn't any interesting sunlight. Sorry.)
At Michigan's Adventure bunny_hugger pals around with Snoopy. She'd explained that she preferred Snoopy because Lucy is ``too mean''.
And then let's look over my humor blog from the past week, in case you haven't read it already. Run since last Friday have been:
- The Origin Of The Specious, this week's major piece. It's about trivia.
- Robert Benchley: The Word “Three”, an etymology.
- My Saint Louis Question Still Stands after I realized I mis-read Vincent Price's name in a key paragraph.
- Reconsidering Penguins because I realized I could've done a little better on the Statistics Saturday post from this week.
- Nothing Is Happening In Apartment 3-G: Mid-August Update, in case you lost the thread of what's going on in Apartment 3-G.
- Statistics Saturday: The Nations Of The World, As Represented In Amusement Park Figures And Art, a guide exactly as useful as the title suggests.
- Harold Lloyd: Could He Save Your Life? in a short where he tries to lifeguard his way into romance.
- The Story Of Anyone’s Life, last week's major piece, about biographies.
