Postcard from the gift shop at the 68th & 5th entrance to the park. While Mary was buying this postcard, I was shooting video of the action at the gift store.
There was a cop in the queue who just wanted to buy a souvenir, and there I was making him a subject of my video. He wasn't too crazy about that.

Here's Jack enjoying what may very well be his last morning in his old chair. The physical therapist has put the kibosh on Jack's old accustomed throne, and I think we're getting him a new chair today.
Sure hope he likes it. He spends an awful lot of time in that spot.

Here's what I think: Lawyers should have subliminal pleading paper. Paper that, while it's being read, it exudes clandestiine messages:
"The clerk of the court is a benevolent demigod."
"The clerk of the court is mythologically wise."

Nessie & I got a start on the Anarchaeology project yesterday, shooting some video of Jean I Don't Know Her Last Name in the garden behind her house in Oakland. We got some good footage, and i'm pleased with the sound quality. That Jean has a lot to say, and I'm glad that people will be able to hear her.
Nessie doesn't want his visage to be shown on the video, so I processed him out with a big fuzzy blue dot. And I heliumed up his voice, too

From the Department of Confusing Commercial Utterances.
Yesterday, I finally got myself hooked up to DSL. In the box with the modem and the disk, Earthlink included a bunch of ads for additional products and services.
This one, for a wireless router, featured photos of a very fairskinned family, all enjoying wireless computing in different venues about the home.
It's Dad that's bothering me. Check his hair, that swirled pompadour action there. Where have I seen that before? DC Comics, that's where.
Dad here is obviously a middle-aged version of the Man of Steel, and oh, look, Superman's got WiFi, and a cordless phone! Now, isn't that nice!

This is a wall facing a parking lot. It looks like the paint was applied with a brush or maybe a spraycan on the end of a long, flexible stick.
I'm not saying it's good; I'm not saying it's bad. I'm just saying that somebody went to an awful lot of trouble to put this piece up.
