Halloween Costume 2010

Many attempted the Chilean Miner look this Halloween. I'm prepared to be judged against my competition. (Unless that competition arrived at their party in a life-sized home made Fenix rescue capsule. They are in a different league.)

Halloween Costume 2008

Lieutenant Colonel Bill Kilgore from the movie Apocalypse Now

A few more related pictures appear below. As a fun game, try to guess which ones are of me in costume, which ones are of Robert Duval from the movie, and which ones are the 12", 1/6 scale, custom-made Kilgore action figure!

You wanna surf soldier? [Yes, sir!] That's good son because you either surf or you fight.

"Charlie don't surf!"

"Two of spades, three of spades, four of diamonds, six of clubs, ace of spades. Isn't one worth a Jack in the whole bunch..."

Rabbit Rattle Investigation


Any noise coming from my car makes me crazy. Rattles, rumbles, tics and other sounds while driving must be hunted down and eliminated. This photo series illustrates how my Dad and I identified and fixed a rattle in my left hatch tail-light. I'm so happy that it's finally fixed!

Noticed at North Broadway QFC Today

One of Eddy's all-stars caught me not-so-stealthily capturing this masterpiece with my camera phone. She asked if I was taking a picture because of the atrocious spelling. My answer was yes, but this home-made sign has appeal on so many other levels.
