    I was wondering if you'd get that reference. It referred to the 'disabled list' from American baseball. When a player is hurt and needs a week or two to recover they come off the active roster and are put on the list.

    Wow very interesting thank you Loonie! :)

    I know it may seem like I don't pay attention but I really do though maybe just in a different way kind of thing so hopefully no one gets offended :D

    It is very interesting how different cultures view things quite differently - not that I mean to keep bringing it up but it's quite fascinating I have noticed more and more. I have worked with some Brits and Americans and some from Chilie - so many different perspectives very interesting hey :)

    Lol or maybe I am just slightly doff in a way lol... have you ever wondered or been in that position that you start swearing so much due to pressure or heat and thirst for perfection and the whole world is on your shoulders that it seems to change you somewhat and that you wonder if you going in the right direction kind of thing? I wonder if you gents have ever been in this position?

    Its not really good to swear I should work hard to change that.

    I feel like I am going more and more in this direction lol so I took a photo to try and capture it's essence even if just for a second to sometimes see how much one progresses over the years.

    Looking shiny :D

    Getting ready for balloon rides at our baseball opening day. Our boys have the honor of playing at Historic Soldiers Field in Douglas. That field was graced by the Yankees and Red Sox in an exhibition game in 1946 including greats like Joe DiMaggio and Ted Williams. IMG_20170430_090735.jpg

    Oh my Lord!

    Yet ANOTHER dead whale on the beach!?

    what the heck os going on here? I am starting to get very concerned this is quite scary... I am now seeing a dead animal on average about once per week!

    this is insane does anyone have an idea as to why so many dead animals are washing up on our shores???

    I am clueless but concerned now.

    :-/

    The article doesn't say if the whale was injured, or if it beached itself. A lot of times sick sea mammals will beach themselves. I've also heard of a lot of injuries happen when commercial boat traffic coincides with mating or migration season. These animals travel in the shallows to feed and sometimes are hit by propellers. :(

    Ahh thank you Loonie buddy I really do hope so my friend :)

    Well I am getting a little bit concerned... I found a gull on the beach that was still alive it had a huge hole in it's chest I was 50/50 about uploading it here because I had already uploaded so many disturbing images (some might not like it possibly) of dead animals in a very short time frame.

    I then phoned SANCCOB to collect the dying sea gull because Nigella was with me and I didn't want to take the poor half dead bird with me and Nigella in my car as she might kill it while I was not watching with my eyes on the road - it would just be trouble having my dog and a panicking sea bird in the car - a recipe for disaster so I would prefer they come and please fetch it as they then did.

    But the next few days got a call saying unfortunately the bird had died and their best guess was botulism or in more uncomplicated terms contaminated food / soil that the sea gull ate... not the best news I was hoping they could save it but I had a bad feeling it was not going to make it :(

    Hmm I have seen I think at least another 3 whales before this one in the paper as well as 2 with my own eyes in the last 3 months that makes about 5 whales in total in a very short time frame!

    I hope it is just a migrating / feeding issue and propeller of boats issue and is something not far worse :(

    I have also seen 2 seals and quite a few dead sea birds on the shores about 4 ... hmm I really hope this is not something worse :(

    Maybe I am being paranoid lol I really hope so :)

    I hope I am just being slightly neurotic and just paranoid lol :)

    Must say it is a bit of a concern now so many in such a short time frame... hmmmm...

    OK a couple more from the Pixel. This is a deer that wandered into my back yard over the holiday weekend. Please bear in mind I live in the center of a heavily populated, very residential suburb of Kansas City. Anyway, this is full zoom, shot from the kitchen window, he was at the very back of my yard probably at least 50 yards away. Personally I love the color saturation in these shots.

    We went catching on Saturday. (Fishing but successfully) ;)
    All pictures taken with pixel. I love the panorama shot it built for me.

    A morning spent fishing is a morning well spent. First the panorama.

    EDIT - oh forgot, we got to the lake at 6 AM fished till about 10. We went out geared up for crappie, bluegill, perch ended up catching catfish all morning. (On worms and minnows with bobbers) We each caught 4 decent cats, threw em back. In honesty, Rachel kicked my butt until almost 9 and then I caught up in the last hour.

    Story time. (This first picture was not take by me or my Pixel)

    I happened to hear a promo on the radio as I was leaving my wife's place of work on Friday. (I got off at noon and took her lunch.) The local sports radio station was at a Ford dealer and they had envelopes with prizes. Hey that's cool, I wanted to test drive a Focus RS anyway. Well I won the big envelope, 100 bucks! :cool::D
    IMG_20170623_171816.jpg

    While I was there I did test drive (and fall in love with) the Focus RS. Following are all Pixel shots.
    IMG_20170623_151557.jpg

    Don't want black. But did see the Blue and Gray versions on Saturday when we took Rachel's truck in for an oil change.

    IMG_20170624_123120.jpg IMG_20170624_123558.jpg

    This is an interior shot, only included it because it's my first and only instance of the dreaded Pixel Halo.

    IMG_20170624_123620.jpg

    We had some shopping to do and while we were at the mall ...

    IMG_20170625_160054.jpg IMG_20170625_160026.jpg

    Yea damn.

    Oh and some super hero thing was going on at the mall as well.

    Went out for dinner Saturday night and grabbed a few at 55 MPH+ for fun. Last one is a Google Pictures Stylized shot.

    Had a quick run to OKC over the weekend. Thought I'd share a few snaps.
    First, all over OKC and Edmond there are a lot of sculptures, I always try to pick out a couple and get a few pics whenever we are there.
    IMG_20170805_095056.jpg IMG_20170805_095113.jpg

    Google liked my eagle shot, and made a stylized version.

    IMG_20170805_095114-EFFECTS.jpg

    My wife LOVES Bricktown Brewery, if you have a chance stop in for a sampler of all their beers.
    IMG_20170805_134337.jpg

    We both love love love The Garage, they are supposed to be building one up here in KC but ... we're still waiting.

    IMG_20170805_175506.jpg IMG_20170805_180309.jpg
    Fun place, great burgers and beer.

    She also got a sampler at a little place called Henry Hudson's Public House. Just a little hole in the wall, but good cold beer. :D

    IMG_20170804_203049.jpg

    We were there both Friday and Saturday so ... it's not like we drink all the time...

    Last but not least, OKC (Edmond to be specific) sits right on Route 66 (in fact the hospital my wife was delivered in ... also on Route 66, no wonder I love her). Anyway .. Route 66 fun ... couldn't resist getting a pic of this, I'd like to own it, don't know if it was even for sale, everything was closed up when we we went by. Anyway ...

    We are only getting 66% here and the clouds have moved in so...
    I didn't even bother getting glasses.

    My nephew sent me pics, he's in Washington State and had a fun time.

    The clouds moved out just in time. Enjoyed one minute of totality from my front porch. Truly awe inspiring.

    Well the clouds broke up and it's a bright dull in my yard, looks pretty neat. No glasses so that's all I can see...
