Indian Market III

I don't think that any does business quite as good as the Roasted Corn folks.  Every year it never fails, you can walk by this stand and there is a line of people waiting to get some of the tasty golden stuff.

In Memory

This is me and my partner Todd.  Todd recently passed away unexpectedly on Aug 1st.
To say that I am devestated is putting it mildy. Tonight there will be a Celebration of Live event at the school where he taught. Needless to say I will not be around to visit your blogs but I will be back on Wednesday.

This was taken on our last hike up at Ghost Ranch.

The Juggler

I caught this guy at the Farmer's Market a few weekends back. The glass ball was heavier than it looks. He juggled this with such grace. If it were me it all you would hear is the crash of breaking glass.

Caught In The Rain

The other day while spending time with my niece we stop for lunch and as we parked I caught sight of this vintage Falcon.  I have seen it around town and normally the red color is not so vivid. The bath must have been good for it.
