hellbob & I were within moments of being in a car crash last night. A police chase no less...
We were heading to a friend's house and didn't remember her exact street address, even though we know what street she is on, and the general area. So we were heading north on Emerson and turned left on Lowry so that we could then go south on Fremont (silly one ways) realized that we hadn't gone far enough north so we circled back to Emerson. As we approached Lowry the second time we saw an accident in the intersection. There was already a cop there, one car was off to the left on Lowry on the sidewalk. Then, about a half block up was another car. A Toyota SUV that was pretty mangled both on front & back, and there were a few parked cars that were pretty banged up.
Pretty scary, since we know we were within minutes of being in that intersection at the wrong time.
Then, today, I was watching a taped show from last night and the Kare 11 news went live to the scene of that same accident. That's how I learned that it had been a police chase. A cop had spotted a car driving recklessly and tried to pull it over and the driver decided that trying to flee was a better idea.

I am gradually working on getting more pictures out there on our web site.
I uploaded the Paul Bunyanland pictures and they can be found HERE

Also, if you enjoyed the cat spam from a few days ago, THIS is where you can find all those pictures, in addition to quite a few more. Because, really, you never can get enough of my fuzzy little babies!

I had a picture of Harvey v2.004 up a few weeks ago, here is last years picture of Harvey v2.003

While sitting downtown with hellbob, waiting to pick ksracxe up after work, I took pictures of the buildings I could see through our sunroof

I haven't been able to get a picture of the snapping turtle in the pond at work, because he's always too far away, but I did find a really neat birds nest over near the woodchuck hole

And last, but not least, when I was in Theo Wirth park a few weeks ago, I found what may just be the most phallic tree, evah!

Oh, and the new user pic. kalfoley should recognize the picture. It is by a brilliant young artist who just happens to be my godson, James!
