This is a trip that has been on my mind for a while.

Then and now.

According to a recent study, gun homicide is down 49% since 1993.

There has been another drastic change regarding firearms since 1993. 

Correlation is not causation, but still.....

Asheville

Asheville has held a special place in my heart since I first saw it during a motorcycle trip down the Blue Ridge Parkway about 20 years ago. Bayou Renaissance Man has an excellent blog, and often finds great videos--this one is no exception. I would not mind having a small place somewhere around Asheville. Riding the BRP on a regular basis would be gravy.
I recommend viewing this full screen.

Rockport Hummer Bird Celebration

Note: several of the photos are not showing the full picture in the preview, so click the first picture and you'll be able to scroll through the full view of all of them.

Amy and I took her mother to Rockport for the Hummer Bird Celebration again this year. The birds weren't cooperating as much as last year, and the feeders were not packed.

We did spend some time at the raptor display and I worked on my artistic photography...

Chupacabra?


Ummmm, no.


But then his girlfriend showed up...


And they proceeded to ... IN THE HOT TUB!

But the other animals did not know what had transpired in that hot tub the night before, and they proceeded to drink...


"Dude, does this taste funny to you?"


"Yeeeeechhhh!"

Little Bear and his prey

Note: all images are movies. Click to play.

A small bear approaches the camera:


He climbs into the pool for a drink, blissfully unaware of the lurking danger at the top level of the waterfall.



Or is he.....
Watch him make a tasty meal out of the stealthy walking stick bug, after first giving it a good washing.

Carrolton GSSF

My brother was kind enough to fly us up to Addison for the Glock shooting match. 90 minutes each way sure beats five hours driving each way.

Here are a few clips from my head-mounted camera.

It's a jungle out there...
