Daylight savings time

I wish they would just leave the time alone. I've said before that if I were president I'd introduce legislation that would split the difference between standard and daylight savings time and then leave it alone after that. Everyone would get half of what they want.

You know, I'm not that fond of November. Maybe we could have two more weeks of October and two more weeks of December, and just save November in case we need an extra month in the spring.. We could throw it inbetween April and May. Or perhaps we could use November for an extra month of summer..

I got my guitar back from the luthier and now it's better, but I'm still not that fond of it, so I'll probably be selling it. I think there might be a Martin in my future.

I'll be keeping the case.. I could put my laptop in it. and a change of clothes..

Storm clouds

I've been trying to catch the thoughts that have been floating around in my head and arrange them into something that makes sense.. but it's not working. So here's a picture from a set I took a while back and rejected all of the pictures because they didn't make sense, but now I see that they sort of look like the inside of my head. A big empty space over here, a big dark spot over there. A dark forest below and a dark sky above.

Tweed guitar case

So here's a picture of my new guitar case.. I bought a new guitar and it came in this great big pimp daddy gold tweed case. I was kind of expecting a black case and when I opened the box and saw it I was like, Holy Cow!.. but people seem to love this. Women seem to love it. I can't walk around with this and not draw attention. It's bigger than it looks and that even makes it worse.

But I have to admit that I even like it now. I think I like it better than the guitar that came in it.

The great pumpkin

My neighbor drove by with a pumpkin in tow, so I chased him down to get a snap.

I like this guy's style.

Tamarack and Larch

I wandered around in the forest for a while yesterday. The Tamaracks are changing color and it's starting to give the forest a golden tint. There are other trees in this picture too. Pine and fir. I thought I should throw some color in my blog before winter sets in and all of my pictures are of snow.

Here's a picture of a young Tamarack that I took last year deep in the forest that was starting to change color. That post is HERE.

Flathead River pictures

Here are a couple of pictures I took today of the Flathead River south of Flathead Lake in Montana. A snow storm moved through last night. So much for Fall..

I disturbed some ducks as I walked down to the shore. You might have to click on the photo if you want to see the ducks.

Outhouse picture

I finally painted the old outhouse. I didn't really want to because I liked the way it looked, but everyone else thought it was an eyesore. It took me a while to paint it because I kept stopping to take pictures, and once I start taking pictures I just loose control.

I should take pictures of nothing but outhouses.. I thought as I took pictures of the outhouse. That's crazy, I thought.. Then I thought, they should give cameras to crazy people and let them take pictures of anything they want.. Withhold their medication and just let them go crazy taking pictures..

How do they detirmine when someone is crazy? I wondered.. "What's the diagnosis Dr.?.." "Well I'm afraid he's gone crazy.." "We'll have to put him on medication.."
