Happy Halloween


I'm passing out eye candy this year.

T-Town Sites 7



     How about this, a T-Town site that's actually in the city limits. In fact, this handsome mailbox is about two miles from my home. I don't know if it's commercially available or custom made, but it looks really neat along the roadside. Mine is a miniature red barn, which the yellow jackets attempt to build a nest in very summer.

T-Town Sites 6


Our last visit to the cemetery. I assume this rocket honors the Air Force members buried at Chambers Creek. I believe the rocket was created by someone with a blowtorch and scrap metal, but it looks good.

T-Town Sites 5



     Back to Chambers Creek Cemetery for a look at the Navy veterans' memorial. We had outstanding weather that day.

T-Town Sites 4


I found these two markers at Chambers Creek Cemetery and thought they were pretty neat. The top one is obviously a trucker. The lower one is either a late railroader or model train enthusiast.

T-Town Sites 3



Okay, once again this isn't in Tacoma proper, but it's close. This huge anti-aircraft gun sits in Copper Creek Cemetery, in the veteran's section. I have several other pictures from this location I thought were interesting that I'll be posting by and by.

T-Town Sites 2



The Vashon Island Ferry.

Vashon Island lies across Commencement Bay from Ruston, a small town on the north tip of Tacoma. The crossing takes about 20 minutes and brings commuters from Vashon to Tacoma and returns them home again. Our usual ferry has been undergoing maintenance, so the Chetzenoka (pictured) has been substituted. In my 34 years of living in Tacoma I've ridden the ferry twice. Once with Linda to drive around the island and enjoy its rural sites, and once I walked on with my two girls. We sailed across and sailed back, watching the vehicles unload in between.

Wedding Pictures 2

 
 
One of the few wedding photos I'm in that doesn't make me look like an ape in a tux.

Wedding Pictures 1


If you didn't see it on Facebook, here  it is again. My girl Stephanie, a bridesmaid, is on the left and my girl Kristine, the bride, is on the right. Excuse me if I'm overly proud of them.

I Go Pogo


     This isn't the possum but a strange aircraft from the 1950s. I'm only doing this because I wanted to see if my blog would upload a photo taken at random from my files. Yay, it did.

Snafus R Us

     Great. Just when I start this blog up again my computer decides it doesn't want to upload pictures into it. My fault. A few days ago I was STUPID enough to respond to a message that my IE needed an upgrade. Ever since then I've had nothing but hassles. Any advice would be appreciated, but remember you're talking to a largely illiterate computer guy.

     I tried turning off the popup blocker, BTW. No help.


     Thanks you for your support.
