Good, clean, love

You might want to turn down the volume before you push play.

I saw this book at a bookstore in Boulder and I said to myself, “Cool, it’s about time there was some scholarly investigation of the beard – particularly the American Beard because that’s the kind I have.” But then I realized it said “Bard.”

Berry Pie

A couple motels with cabin themes. It would be great to stay in a motel that is made up of log cabins but as you can see only the lobby of the Log Cabin Motel, Chadron Nebraska, is log cabinish. The other motel is somewhere east, maybe even Iowa.

Semi Regular Cabin Review

This "log cabin" in western Idaho looks like it was made with Lincoln Logs. To be honest, which I am not opposed to being from time to time, I would not classify this structure as a cabin but it references a cabin aesthetic and is worthy of inclusion.
I am not a big fan of rating things as in "four stars," or "thumbs up." I will rate this as to whether I would live in a house like this or not. Yes, I would.

Diego's Path of Distruction

I have had this dog for less than a year - so I suppose one chewed down tree and one burned up camper van is not that bad. He only does this when no one is looking so I cannot say for sure that he was responsible for these acts of destruction but the evidence is overwhelming.

The Lottery

While I drive I often daydream, “If I won the lottery I would…” and then I go into a reverie of fantasy that usually includes buying cars and houses for friends and family, paying off student loans, mine and yours, and fixing up the cabin. Then I snap out of it and am left with a feeling that, not only did not will millions, but that I lost millions of dollars. Then I do it again.
So, if I won the lottery, in the hundreds of millions, I would buy log cabins from towns all over the country. Many towns have them including: Milwaukee, WI, Davis, CA, Boise Idaho, and various small towns in Wyoming, Nebraska and Iowa. Those are the cabins I have seen recently but I am sure there are many more. The towns would sell them to me because of all the wonderful things they could do for their community with all that money – I would pay millions for these little cabins. After I have secured enough cabins I would ship them to a beautiful location and build a mansion out of them. Please see artist representation below.

I seemed to have chosen a highway with no campgrounds or rest stops so I decided to stay in a motel. Diego and I demanded the best room in the house and we were given the Coca-Cola suite. Nice.

Wrong Turn

Someone told me this was the road to Girl Town, or Ladiesburg or Foxopolis - I forget which but it was not Manville.

Western Tanager

I have been seeing quite a few of these birds this spring. In fact I was just talking to some friends about it - they have been seeing them too - over breakfast before I found this one dead on the sidewalk on Main Street in Boise.
