Tomorrow’s Blog Entry

There will only be one blog entry tomorrow, Oct 20th. It will be a letter to my father who died one year ago.

For one day, out of respect to my Dad, I’ll be good and won’t attack the liberals.

On Sunday however, the gloves will come back off and I’ll return to my normal self.

Butterflies On Skyline Drive

While the day trip on Skyline Drive was very interesting and beautiful, it was difficult to get really good photos of the moutains, valleys, trees, and greenery.

There is a blue haze over everything in the distance, probably because you’re at the top of the Blue Ridge Mountains. I was able to get some nice landscape type shots and will try to adjust them as much as possible. I’ll post some in the next few days.

The were butterflies all over the place along the 105 mile drive. Most were rather small. I didn’t see any large ones. I got in as close as I could and spent a few minutes getting a few shots. Here is one of them.

9/11 Trucker

The following was sent in by Phyllis Linton.

These are pictures of an independent trucker who has painted his cab and trailer with the names of all those who lost their lives in 9/11.

The trucker’s name is John Holmgren from Shafer Minn. The trucker has been “pulled over” numerous times — just so the troopers can get their picture taken with the truck.

Our emergency responders in this country – our police, firemen, and EMS seem to be much more patriotic than the average citizen.
