Scary day care sign

This is a sign for a day care that closed a while ago. I'm not sure who designed that clown logo, but it freaks me out. I'm not sure if they could have made a creepier clown if they tried.

Old car

I saw this car on the way to the memorial day event. I love old cars, partly because my parents have a Model A Ford that my uncle restored and left to them after he passed. Summer seems to bring out a lot of the classic and antique cars. Pretty sure this is about as old as you can find around here though.

Cows relaxing

A change of pace from the Memorial Day photos, some cows relaxing in a field on the edge of town. Not sure why took the picture, i think it's because they look so relaxed, or tied.

Memorial Day, part 4

Another part of the parade. These girls were having a hard time with the flags blowing, as you might be able to tell from their expressions. The girl on the right was hit by the flag in front of her, or it came close at least.

memorial Day, part 3

It was pretty windy on memorial day, as you might be able to tell from this picture of a scout and his leader trying to untangle a flag they were carrying.

Memorial Day, part 2

Another photo from the event Memorial day yesterday. Not sure what they were talking about but i thought it made a good photo.

Memorial Day 2009

Today is Memorial Day, an i got out a bit to the breaking in of the new memorial monument at the cemetery in the north part of town. I wanted to get at least one of the photos up today at least though.

Old truck

This is an older photo, but one i had thought i had lost due to a hard drive crash and other computer troubles, but found it on a back up disc. The odd thing is i haven't been able to find this since. I originally found this while randomly driving around town and the edge of town, but since this was actually a couple of years ago, i'm thinking maybe they removed it. The more i look at it, the more it looks like a mail truck, but i keep thinking it looks like an ice cream truck for some reason. This is a fitting photograph as the last week or so (more than a week actually) has been very stressful with a family member in the hospital, and other more easily fixed troubles. If only people were as easy to fix as cars and computers, and you can always replace those, not loved ones.

Unity in the Community 2009, part 7

This is a drummer i forget the name of, he also played a harp type instrument, and made the drums by hand. I looked for a program to get the names and descriptions of the people, but couldn't find one while there, and i haven't found one online, sorry, so i'm going by memory.

Unity in the Community 2009, part 6

This is the poet laureate of, well, i hate to admit i forgot that, and his name. Sorry. He read a poem though that was nice. I wasn't feeling too well and had to head home at this point.

Unity in the Community, Part 5

This is the group from Mariachi Loco, where i had an awesome burrito and sadly missed the belly dancer. Still, it was worth it, being an awesome burrito. To the left is where you could get egg rolls from the Asian American student association. I was tempted to try those too, but the burrito was quite big and filling.

Unity in the Community part 4

These lovely ladies were doing Bollywood dancing, not many pictures of them turned out too well, as the lighting wasn't as good as it seems in the pictures, but they did a great job.

Unity in the Community 2009, part 3

These are dancers at the Unity in the Community event. I'm not exactly sure what the dance was about, but it was interesting. They had garbage bags that they moved around and did a great job with their moves.

Unity in the Community 2009, part 2

These were people demonstrating a Korean martial art that i forgot the name of. These were very fun to take pictures of, trying to capture the action, but i also could have probably used a faster lens as it was darker than i expected. Although i do like the way the action is blurred in a lot of them with other areas clearer. This group also broke blocks and used swords, although that made me a little nervous about being in the front row.
