Black Friday

The back of some stranger’s head.  How many of you were out shopping today and that was your view as you stood in line waiting to get  and/or pay for your must-have, 20% off, limited supply Christmas presents?

I decided to avoid all the hoopla and headed up to the family land instead.  This is what I was looking at all day:

Much better than anything you can see at Wal*Mart.

Inversion Preparedness…

Fog Lights:

And all it took was a few pieces of yellow lens cover, a hair dryer and about a half hour.  And I’ll be able to remove them when I get real fog lights for it.

16,801 days late and a dollar short*.

Shirley Chisholm even made a bid for the Democratic Presidential nomination in 1972.

* Considering the amount of out-of-state money that flowed into Mia Love’s campaign, I doubt she even came close to being a dollar short.

Just under the wire, again.

Yeah, another week that I waited until the last minute for my entry to:

This week’s theme is “Round and round”, and I immediately thought of the Spiral Jetty on the Great Salt Lake.

Utah has an odd collection of unusual art.  There’s Gilgal Gardens, the Tree of Utah (below) and the Spiral Jetty.  That I know of.

The Spiral Jetty was built in 1970 by artist Robert Smithson.  It is 1,500 feet long from the shore to the center , sticking out into the Great Salt Lake, and depending on the water level, has gone from completely covered with water, to completely landlocked. 

The spirals are wide enough that two people can walk on it side-by-side.

Between the spirals, when not filled with water, is a slushy mix of mud and salt that is hard to walk on, and will immediately eat away all the metal rivets on your shoes.
