The Flume and the Fun

Image
On Sunday, I took a trip with my friend and my son to The Flume Gorge in New Hampshire. The last time I had been there, was about 10 years ago with my husband.


The river at the end of the Flume Gorge 

Ten years ago, I did not take pictures (our camera was a disposable one and it was broken).

Now I use a digital camera.


The river and the start of the gorge 


Ten years ago, the 2 mile (mostly up-hill) walk to the Flume seemed so easy.

Now, my calves hurt.


Inside the Flume 

Ten years ago, I thought I was in love in the most profound way and there was no way it could get better.

Now, it is even better...

And I have more people to share that with:


Under a Glacial Boulder 

Wouldn't it be cool to have this?

I put in a bid for 'em, but lost. 

Yep, just the thing for my five year old for Halloween!

Here's a great place to find some cool senseless stuff:

Check out the cube goodies! I got this from there:

14 More Days Until Kindergarten

Ready for Kindergarten! 

Summer seems to have gone REALLY quickly this year (it seems to do that the older I get). Today, my son asked me when he will be starting Kindergarten...and now I realize that its less then 2 weeks away! I should have realized this since I did take him to go clothes shopping for school...I just thought it was "in September". Now September is not so far away. Wow. I am going to take the first two days off, mainly to be around just in case (but really to wallow in the whole "my baby's growing up" thing---and to perhaps get some extra sleep).

He has the pre-requsite Spongebob backpack and Spider Man folder. The dinosaur lunch box and the markers and glue.

And a really nifty pair of shoes.

Buy Bush Out--Virtual Yard Sale and other Political Links

Always been a bit political, but since 2000, I have been a bit more "in touch" with the internet, as I have wanted to figure out what the fuck has been going on with this country. Here are some great sites/blogs to go for that information/political/left leaning junkie:

Buffy Con

Image
See, this is the extent of our Buffy obsession! My son with "Spike" at a Buffy Con last year.

(and yes, I don't have a lot of recent photos on my hard drive).

Buffy and other interests...

Image
So, most times I am on the internet, its usually to go to a Buffy board. When I tell people I love Buffy the Vampire Slayer, I usually get one of two reactions. Either they look at me like I am totally stupid, or they look at you like you are part of a secret society (of which they are a part).

The above picture's is of one of my favorite characters on Buffy--Willow. If I have another child, and if she's a girl, she will be named Willow.

Okay, so other interests that usually get a "hmmm" look: http://www.findadeath.com/

One of my favorite sites. Yep, I am a Death Hag. I love to see gruesomeness. Going on vacation usually has to include some type of cemetary tour or other type of gruesomely historical niche.

So, besides the whole "Buffy/Angel" and death photography things, I am pretty normal...I love comic books, animation, movies, etc. (go see that profile).

I would put up more photos, but Ofoto is down, and I am still trying to figure out where the rest o…

Going Blog

Just trying this out for a spin, as I have already tried the whole home web page and once my home page was obliterated by a merger (Media One, meet AT&T), I just have not found the time to attempt a whole NOTHER Web Page. And, as I really wanted to just mouth off anyways...figured blogging is probably better! Besides, if I want to really HTML it..it looks like I can. (Although right now, looks like I am being the lazy one). Okay, so the score--I am going to put in some stuff, and "you" being "whoever" may comment. :-)
