More Fun with Pictures

I didn't do as much picture manipulation today - it's been a really lazy day. We started off with a tug passing in front of our RV moving fast and leaving a wake.

I tried shooting a shot through the lens of my binoculars. It came our relatively poor but I found it interesting anything came out at all.

So I tried taking one backwards through the binoculars - oh well (laughing at myself)

I did get out close to the old board walk and got this picture notice how much clearer the sky is today - no smoke.

Well I'm a sucker for odd-ball pictures and got this shot of the ground nearby with an old timber embedded in the rock strewn ground.

“It is possible to read the history of this country as one long struggle to extend the liberties established in our Constitution to everyone in America" ~ Molly Ivins (see below)

Molly Ivins has passed away.

AUSTIN Best-selling author and newspaper columnist Molly Ivins, the sharp-witted liberal who skewered the political establishment and referred to President Bush as "Shrub," died Wednesday after a long battle with breast cancer. Ivins was 62. The writer, who made a living poking fun at Texas politicians, whether they were in her home base of Austin or the White House, revealed in early 2006 that she was being treated for breast cancer for the third time. "Molly was a hero. She was a mentor. She was a liberal. She was a patriot. She was a friend. And she always will be," the Texas Observer said in a statement upon her death. "With Molly's death we have lost someone we hold dear. What she has left behind we will hold dearer still." Managing Editor David Pasztor said Ivins died Wednesday afternoon at her home while in hospice care.
