I Wish I Could Do That

Great Forest Park Balloon Race 2102 16

But then what good would it really do me? Extra coolness points, for sure. This is a scene from the sideshow before the Great Forest Park Balloon Race.

Greetings from beautiful Blue Springs, Missouri, on the outskirts of Kansas City, where we are spending Thursday night. Tomorrow it's off to Marysville, Kansas, where my wife, Carolyn, went to high school. This weekend is her 50th anniversary class reunion. There's a homecoming parade down the old Main Street Friday afternoon, followed by a tailgate party for the alums and the Friday night high school football game. Saturday night is the anniversary party at the American Legion hall. That's a good thing since they will have a full bar, often hard to find in the conservative Sunflower State.

I'll be poking lenses into all of it and making notes for my anthropology term paper.

The City Daily Photo Blog Theme Day for October is nearly upon us. Have you, as yet, given some thought to your interpretation of our theme, ‘Silhouette’? There are a number of meanings to this word, and there is no need to feel restricted to the meaning in the English language. If you are a member of Face Book, you are welcome to post your contribution to the CDPB group page at If you are not a member of Face Book, you may care to post at
As you post your October Theme contribution, please vote for your choice of the five suggested themes for November (My Street, Fresh Fruit and Vegetables, The Water’s Edge, Ageing (dis)gracefully, or The Thrill of the Dance). You may vote at either location, but please only vote once! The results will be conflated at the close of voting on Monday 8th November.

Now there's something you don't see every day!

I could do that, of course, but I don't like to show off.

I can do that. At least I was good at that sort of nonsense many years ago! Cool photo.

Too easy haha!

Extra coolness for sure. Maybe you can practice with a camera on your nose instead of a chair? :-)
