Art Gallery Afternoon
Middling, middle-aged, Midwesterner getting a weekend workout in before an art gallery date with his wife.
This painting by (George) Ault... always!!
Viewing Kansas City's Monet (Water Lilies panel) once more before it is loaned to a French institution for 18mos.
Our Little Slice of Paradise
Our little slice of paradise. In the land of NO SALT, NO SHARKS, NO WORRIES. Over several days we've experienced ducks & geese with their young waddling or paddling behind and seagulls and fox and chipmunks and snowshoe hare and a gargantuan, adult black bear I estimate weighed about 400-450lbs that was a treat to see.
Nature, ain't nothing better... although that stout with a roasted marshmallow on top gave Mother Nature a run for its money.
"This is some fucked up shit, yo! When I saw this sign, my imagination conjured the image of a person using their cellphone while in the ocean and being encircled by sharks."
Great White Shark pedants, I'm pretty sure Great Whites do NOT circle; please don't allow your heads to explode over my imagination's knee-jerk response to the sign. Furthermore, of all the pedantry "Actually-ing" out in the world, shark pedantry is some of the worst. I'm just speaking the truth. Nobody else will tell you this. But I will.

They let men who look like sasquatch book hotel rooms in the hilly and mountainous countryside. I'd have to check the automatic date-stamp of this particular photo to know precisely what mountains are hidden behind the blinds: TN, VA, NC or the steep beauty rising effortlessly in WV. Too lazy to look it up. Guessing blue ridge in this photo; not for certain. Anywho...
Cruising down the mountain, always
with love and peace as pace.
But got one loaded and locked under the front seat.
Ya know... just in case.

Thanksgiving Holiday Weekend
An absolutely great holiday... so far. We added to the shared Thanksgiving '21 holiday memories by folding Friday's city-based, social-scene shopping into a Saturday road-trip to small towns and shops, enjoying a Country Christmas in the Flint Hills, one of my wife's favorite places in space-time — and where, yesterday, I learned, while sitting in a newly opened "saloon" located in an old building she and I toured and considered buying pre-COVID, just how many Kansas cowboys and farmers take their whisky with diet Coke. (WTF?!)
There's always something to learn. Always.
