Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined. Henry David Thoreau

Who is this man
and what is he doing exactly?

He is the husband of this sweet young thing.
And the father of this innocent child.

What is he doing you ask?

He is not washing his hands.
He is preparing to build his own

backyard bomb.

Here are his tools.

A simple black trash bag.

A torch thingy.

All gauges and dials aligned and ready!

A fuse.


First, the mad scientist duct tapes the trash bag to the pole.

Sweet young thing assists in this madness.
Innocent child is ready to drive the getaway cart
quickly away.

 More duct tape,please!

The trash bag fills with some acetalyne gas, 

the fuse gets lit

and these three
hightail it outta there.


(I'm not sure about the gas,) 

I am befuddled by the whole thing.
This must surely be a guy thing.

I mean, 
who does this????

This one, that's who.

Run .

Run for your life!



If that is not enough silliness,

take a look at this.


The dog who sleeps all year
so he can do this all night.

Most dogs cower and cry when the fireworks start.
Not this one.

He is a freak of nature.

Not unlike...

well, never mind.

Speaking of nature,

God put on a pre-show show

that I could not
get enough of.




Nighty night!


  1. I have to leave a comment here and correct myself! the silly dog's name is JR. I also failed to thank the mad scientist for an awesome evening of great food and entertainment. My bad. Thanks for including us in the madness...we had a great time!

  2. Oh, that's OUR kind a MAN!!! We love things that blow up! LOL And great shots and LOVELY sky!!!!!!!!


"Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense." Ralph Waldo Emerson
