Earlier this Summer, my friend Myk, his girlfriend Allison and I drove to Scranton for a car show that turned out to be not quite worth the 5 hour drive. It was not a totally wasted trip, because on the way there, we saw this...

The trailer in the above picture, taken through my windshield, was towing one of the weirdest things I've seen in a looooong time...

A motorbike covered in Barbie dolls!

In addition to the Barbie dolls, there were a few Jolly Rodger flags too. I don't know.

What do you call a guy hanging on the wall?

I have a backlog of things that I need frame. I also have a stack of things that ARE framed that I haven't gotten around to hanging up. I'll get around to it eventually. I've got other things to do. Like chase the cat around the house with my video camera in hopes he'll do something interesting. You know, important stuff.

This frame situation is the bane of my Mother's existence.

Everytime she visits, she asks if we should hang things on the walls. I've already got a lot of things up around the house, so it's not as if my walls are bare. The un-hung things apparently eat at her soul. I don't know why.

This weekend, I went frame shopping and bought enough frames for all the unframed things I have aquired. Thus, the backlog is gone and my mother will now have to find something else to nag me about.

By the way, you call him "Art."

The deck is almost finished. The only things that need to be done are small cosmetic type things that I'm in no hurry for.
My Father is the greatest for building this for me... he even used vacation days to come up and build.

He was up this last weekend building.. He came up on thursday night in order to be up stupidly early on Friday to start the day building.

When I got home from work on Friday evening, I found him sitting on the deck drinking a Corona, slightly buzzed. I tell him the deck looks great and he says he's done for the day.

Then he shows me his hand. His knuckle is a meaty, bloody mess. Holy poop, it looks bad.

He tells me he got it caught in his belt-sander. HE GOT HIS KNUCKLE CAUGHT IN A BELT-SANDER!

What a trooper.

He sleeps

Nothing of note, just some pictures of the devil sleeping. I think the slow change from Summer to Autumn is making this cat insane. He's been more of a jerk this week than usual. I've said this before, but he's really lucky he's adorable.

Top Banana of Coney Island!

See the giant inflatable banana...?

I bought it. I had to.

Return to Coney Island

Went to Coney Island yesterday. We went because this weekend was the last official open weekend of the season. With the land sales and uncertainty of the future of parts of Coney island, we wanted to go one last time. Coney Island will open next season, but it may be quite different.

In process...

Almost done!

I don't know what part of this makes me happier... the deck, or the fence that blocks the demon neighbor's view of my yard.
