How's my humor blog looking? About like this:
- If I Were To Find Myself On The Constitution-Writing Committee, last week's surprisingly well-liked major piece.
- In Which My Curiosity Goes Unsated by an event in town.
- Statistics Saturday: Ten Most Popular Men’s T-Shirt Sizes in case you needed to know.
- What’s Going On In Judge Parker? Who’s Now Dead In Judge Parker? June – September 2018 and there's a lot of plot going on in Judge Parker all of a sudden.
- Is the comic strip Henry ending? Is the comic strip Hazel ending? Yes, to both, and to two other comic-like features I never heard of either.
- The Stan Freberg Show: The First Episode as I start another big rewatch project.
- The Things I Learn From Looking At A Map partly through bunny_hugger, who noticed the city has a 7th Avenue.
- In Which It Turns Out The Collapse Of Western Civilization Could Be Surprisingly Easy To Avert, in case anyone thinks that would be a good idea at this point.
So now back to our last full day up in Omena and the vicinity last year.
Back at our rental home: the big side garden and the steps up to the patio where bunny_hugger's parents stayed so much, given her mother's agonizing back pain.
Columbo taking another chance to patrol the grounds.
Keeping an eye on that volleyball just in case it needs to answer some questions.
Columbo keeping a respectable interest in me and showing off that big ol' ear.
If you look closely, you can see some bunny tongue.
Columbo wanting the volleyball to feel nice and secure before he turns to ask it a few key questions.
And then bunny_hugger and I went to Leelanau State Park, around the Grand Traverse Lighthouse, to have a little time on the beach and on the lakeside in the evening light.
We stopped at a not particularly sandy part of the shoreline (there is a sandy region, although this part of the state has a lot of rocky beaches). Anyway, here's the kinds of water and plantlife you get at the beach.
So yeah, I took a bunch of pictures of plants with Lake Michigan in the background. I like it.
