Lenticular Crackerjack Elephant Time

While cleaning out my office, I found this, an old Crackerjack prize. It's a lenticular photo of an elephant; move the picture back and forth, and the elephant's trunk will go up and down as if the beast is lifting food into its mouth. Pretty wondrous stuff for a 70s kid.

Roadside Attraction

Once again, I endeavoured to create something reasonably sensible given a random assortment of Lego parts. I came up with this Yellow Submarine-like open air market.
Here we have the flammerjammer station.
And the duplibay.
Here's Asiagy at the refreshment kiosk. Note the fresh cup of carrot coffee.
Here's the dangerous automated Flam-bo-mat.
And here's Zombo in her Zipstooge flyer.

All told, I don't think this build was quite as successful as my roadside raider hideout.

Salt Lake Sunset

On August 11, Mom and Dad journeyed to Salt Lake (near Virden) for a community gathering and captured this sunset. It was 39 degrees C - a great day for a swim, and many locals took advantage.
 Here are Mom and Dad with my cousin David on the day.

I Answered the Door

I answered the door.

"You're right; it's pretty smoky outside."

The door stood silent for a moment.

"I'll just stay closed, then."

I nodded and walked away.

Stuff I Wish David Lynch Would Direct

Whatever the heck he wants to. And if I were a billionaire, I'd fund it.

I wouldn't be able to resist asking him to look at the screenplay for Toilet Chase, though...
