Ugly Pumpkins

The native American name is "squoutersquashes" or squashes. These ugly ones occupied a special area of the market.

American Spirit

american spirit A natural product. I found this crushed pack lying on the ground behind an empty fire pit off Highway 7. Yellow. I like the Thunderbird image at the top of the pack.

Angels Reading

Angel's Readings The fact is, at my age I really don’t need a reading. I will skip the old jokes and say that “no news is good news” is now my mantra. I do a quick check in the morning to see if my shirt is on inside out, matching socks and I am good to go. Who needs a reading to tell me that Aunt Fritz in trying to contact me? She never gave me that Waterford crystal vase I asked for anyway. And as for secret information; just tell where I left my car keys. I once went to a psychic with a date, thinking I would score points (in 1973). I should have payed they swami off, because he did me no favors. He privately told her we had no future. She dumped me post-haste. How would I know this guy was going to ask her out? I am no ....hey! wait a minute!

Dachshund Races in Wayzata

The Dachshund races were sandwiched into a smaller area. Probably due to the extensive construction on Wayzata Boulevard. The smaller competitive area, and closely grouped spectators imparted a more of a wiener dog scale, and a bit less less pomp and ceremony.

The eye

A very cautious eye one me....


Get set


Sincere cheer

Every race has a weiner.


The James J. Hill Days Daschund races are tomorrow from 12:00 - 2:00. in Wayzata. If all goes well I will be there.
The doggies are the center of attention as the fierce little hunters compete for the crowds affections. Many races, many weiners.

Graphic descriptions

Driving up Minnetonka Boulevard at 6am I noticed the van in front of me had some great graphics. We cruised up the boulevard, and ended up in the Holiday Station filling up at the same time.
I turned to the young driver, and said: "great logo"
He said thanks, it was his design. He said that he had to push the automotive graphics company that did the application to make it as large as possible. He wanted it to cover his whole vehicle. I agreed.

No jacket required?

Surfs up @ Nokomo Beach

I have seen numerous people paddle boarding Lake Minnetonka, and I have noticed that I cannot remember seeing one with a life jacket......perhaps the board qualifies as a flotation device.
