The College Peeps are Back in Town

College is out for the summer, which means all of our college peeps will be stopping by to hang out, play cards, or both. A few of them stopped by last night, and I did manage to get a picture or two. Won't be long before the high school peeps get their taste of freedom.

Kyle at Fort Leonard Wood

We drove to Springfield on Wednesday to move Alex back home from Missouri State University. While passing the exit for Fort Leonard Wood, which is where Kyle is currently stationed, we discovered that the base is only 3 miles South of I-44, so we stopped in and said hello.

Nick's final performance at Normal Community West High School occurred earlier this week. It was a bittersweet ending to more than 8 years of school band:

Love That Dog

Who couldn't love that face? Cody is the best dog in the whole world, and that's no exaggeration

A Walk in my Shoes

Should you find yourself walking
in my shoes there won't be much talking
stepping timidly the shoe will guide
light cascading on its unassuming side
 
cotton sewn lace
holds the tongue in place
held up by its foundation
worn by lasting duration
 
though cautious and cognizant
each stride is self confident
with care each seam
sewn fluidly like a stream
 
warm interior burning
with creative energy yearning
to build, shape, construct
brought to heel with fear of self destruct

Neil Degrasse Tyson

Saw Neil Degrasse Tyson give a talk in Minneapolis last week. The talk was about the search for extra-terrestrial life. It was well worth the 500 miles I had to drive for the 2 and 1/2 hour event.

Scale Model Farm

My uncle has been working on a 1/64 scale model of his childhood farm for about a decade. The detail is unbelievable. All of the building's doors are operable, and all of the roofs are removable to reveal detail which includes individual rooms and furniture built to scale. Simply amazing!

The Masters

Last year's trip to the Masters ended early due to rain, so I didn't get to photograph many of the golfers. So, I had one wish when I went to The Masters this year. That wish was to spot Tiger Woods on the course, and maybe even get a half decent photo of him. Well, my wish was granted, in spades:
