The Week in Walks, etc. Vol 43

Right, let’s get into it, hey? πŸ™‚

Walking 11/5/08

Horses and turkeys…a bit of a strange combination, but when you think that you can see everything from dogs to horses to squirrels and even some chickens, so it really isn’t that odd to see a combination from time to time. πŸ˜‰

Walking 12/5/08

Well, this is an interesting bit of decoration in the grille of this truck, hey? Not too sure what the truckie is thinking with it, but it’s not something you see every day. πŸ˜‰

Walking 13/5/08

A bit of a lesson for y’all here, even if it is outdated (the current state excise tax is approximately 1 cent higher, if I remember correctly), this is the outline of how taxes are distributed in the $4.00 per gallon we’re paying for our fuel. Of course, here, the state excise tax goes to fund the state’s deficits and not road building, but that’s government for you…

Walking 14/5/08 A

For some reason, this opening in the tree line along the horse paddock-cum-lake is intriguing to me. Also, I love how everything is greening up, as it is here in the forest –

Walking 15/5/08

So, why am I posting a photo of a camera? Why is the camera in a car? Well, it’s for something that I’m trying out with recording a bit of a video on my commute (and to try to get video of the deer I see at night). What I’m going to do with it is a bit of a mystery, but I’ll do something with it. πŸ˜‰

Distance – 2580 steps, 2.06km

Walking 16/5/08

I had to travel to the city to do some business, and came across this site (after noticing the sign that said “Bridge Out” – they’re repairing a road that desperately needs it, and that means backups which are horrendous along with someone deciding that paving a path for walking is more important than paving a path for driving……

Walking 17/5/08

Here I am coming up with solutions again – here’s using a wire rack designed for apparently a condiment rack to store the grill brush in. It’s simple and works like a charm. πŸ˜‰

Distance – 3818 steps, 3.05km


In other news… I spent a bit of time on Saturday afternoon taking in some good music from a local jazz band to which I had some connections performing their annual end-of-performance-year gig. Ok, I’ll fess up, it was a school band I was in, and I heard the advertisement for the event. πŸ˜‰

Also, and this was the reason for the trip to the city on Friday, I took the last steps to cutting my ties with my old bank by, ahem, fixing an error I brought upon myself when I bought some gas on my old card when I didn’t quite have enough cash on hand to do it…uhhh, oops :blush: . In any case, by the end of the week, the account should be closed up completely and I’ll be free from their poor location choices (and no, that wasn’t the only reason that I left them πŸ˜‰ ).
