I'm Sorry, I Just Can't Stop Myself

.
Chinese Festival at MoBot 14

I really am sorry, but these kids at the Chinese Cultural were just so cute that I can't resist posting a few more of these shots. Besides, I get a lot more page views when I use these instead of the artsy stuff.

Comments on my friends blogs may be a little thin over the next couple of days so apologies in advance, There's a family outing tonight and that's when I usually write my posts and comments. Then Mrs. C. and I are taking a little weekend road trip to Hannibal, Missouri, birthplace of one Samuel Clemens, who called himself Mark Twain during his writing career. There is all sorts of Tom Sawyer-Huck Finn-Becky Thatcher touristy stuff up there. On the way north tomorrow, we'll stop at the Mississippi River towns of Clarksville and Louisiana if they are not under water. Should bring back plenty of good pix.


Downtown St. Louis 365 wonders why the big statue of Stan Musial is so misshapen.

This has been such a gorgeous series...I imagine it was hard to limit yourself to the ones you've shown us. Wishing you a very good time this weekend.

What a great shot! I can't wait to go back to Hannibal.

I've been once, with someone who was not at all interested, so got the bum's rush. NEVER again. Enjoy for me!

Don't be sorry, Robert, keep on posting, this is another fantastic portrait which I simply love.

Your photos from this festival has been great.

Beautifully composed portrait. Clemens lived and wrote in Hartford for a couple of decades. It has always seemed odd to me that a writer about the Midwest would choose to live here.
