Crab Mama wanted shelves in the "bike closet", so we went to Lowes and searched around for some shelves.  We looked around but didn't see anything that we liked, but we found a bunch of scrap lumber - two boards for 10 cents each and two for 25 cents each.  It took me a couple of hours to cut down the wood and put everything together, but they should each hold a couple of hundred pounds.  Pretty good for 70 cents.

Doggy Number 1

This is Scaredy-Dog.  She is much better after a few years of no abuse, but she is still a bit skittish around men.  She is a very good dog, though.  And pretty too.

Pot Pie

This is better than last night.


Turkey, potatoes, carrots, rolls, sweet potatoes and gravy.  Um.

The Birdfeeder

This is a birdfeeder that is outside of my office window.  There are an insane number of birds.

What is this?

This is obviously an exhaust vent.  What is it exhausting?  Hmmm....


I have decided that I should post more interesting structures around this great city of ours.  So here is another one.

Caught up

This is probably one of the better pictures that I have taken, in my opinion.  I love how the forest looks in the mist.  The small horizontal branches in the foreground are pretty cool too.

Rocket Boy

Fill a bottle full of air, pull the cord and Whamo - the rocket goes 50 feet into the air.  Repeat.  Again.

Here is a hint

I really like the architecture. It is not a great picture, but I may try for a better one in the summer when there is more light.

Statue in Ann Arbor

Guess where this is?

WTF is this?

One of the bears of Bern.  This one is Finn.  Because he came from Finland.

This was our view from our hotel room in Bern on the only sunny day we were there.

These smurfs are on sale at the same place that sells bongs.  Coincidence?  I think not.

Bag Gas

Of all of the 252 pictures Crab Girl and I took today, this one makes me laugh the most.  Does that make me childish?  I thought so.

A pretty lion

Here is a pretty, pretty lion that Crab Girl knitted while in Switzerland!  Isn't it pretty!

The hands of justice

There is nothing more bad ass than a chick with a sword.  Except maybe a blindfolded chick with a sword.  The hands of justice are indeed swift.

Yes, he is eating a baby

And he has more strapped on to his back for later.

Bikes at Night

When we got out of the meeting, it was dar already (5:00), so we couldn't get any good pictures.  This one sucks, but it shows roughly how many bikes are parked in the bike parking lot.  There are about 5 rows of these bikes, and then a bunch more on the side of the road.  I will try for a better picture tomorrow morning.

On our way to Bern

We were on a train to Bern and trying to take some pictures out the window.  The problem is that it was too dark outside and too light inside.  So, we got pictures that looked like this.

On our way to Switzerland

The fountain in Detroit's airport.

Baby Bertha.  She is short and fat.  But man can she move.
