Show & Tell: Hallooo, Red Roques!

Whenever we have out of town guests, we take them to nearby Red Rocks amphitheater, climb down to the stage and pretend we are British rock stars.

We took visitors there recently and I took a couple of non-amphitheater photos of these breathtakingly beautiful geologic formations:

Show & Tell: Science project

Subtitle: How I ended up on the N0Fly List.

Reed, Grade 1, had his first Minds at Work Exhibition.

It was 99% self-directed (I insisted he change his focus from “weapons” to “military weapons”) and 99% completed by Reed himself (I wrote the answers he gathered through an interview with his uncle so he could copy them; I googled for images). He was to choose a topic and run with it, resulting in a tri-part board that reflects his vision of his project.

Which turned out like this.

I’m hoping I can still get on airplanes, and worrying that men in black will arrive at my door to take me away. So if I should suddenly disappear, look for my habeas corpus at Guan.tanamo.

Show & Tell: Senior moment

Maybe it’s the influence of my last post that triggered me to share this photo I took of a scene in Budapest many years ago.

Budapest was the consolation prize I mentioned here, which includes the bridge that first bonded me to Cassandra.

I wonder what the man is waiting for? What kind of life has he had? What has he seen? Has he loved and been loved?

The photo has been hanging on our wall for a dozen years, and the light has not been good to it. Still, I hope you can see the haunting quality in the image that I do.
