Lentner Farm Supply

I might do away with describing ‘levels’ of Photoshop manipulation in my photos. They’re pretty much always over-cooked. This shot, for instance, had decent tonal-range. At one point. But that’s been ‘modified’. In Adobe Photoshop. Boom.

Rowboat – Glen Haven, M.I.


Who knew? I’m on a boat! Or… I took a photo of one, anyway.

Al Czervik (whose giant anchor has crushed Judge Smails’ boat): “Hey! You scratched my anchor!”

Pilings

So… I think these are pilings. They run along a pier, anyway. As you can tell I’m not that great with nautical stuff. Please don’t ask me to tie a fancy knot (that would get embarrassing in a hurry).

Steve Zissou: “Can you hear the Jack Whales singing?”

*distant horn sounding*

Ned Plimpton: “Beautiful. I wonder what they’re saying?”

Steve Zissou: “Well, actually that’s a sludge tanker over there…

*distant whales singing*

Steve Zissou: “There you go…”

Red River Ford

Keep on truckin’ everyone.

Do people still use that line? Probably not.

Still… that’s about all that comes to mind right now.

It seems like the truck’s got my tongue. Or… something like that.

Diamonds Are Forever

007: “Seriously, Moneypenny… what kind of place did you send me to this time?”

Moneypenny: “Do be a sport, James – M16’s budget is ever so tight, and… you received a substantial AAA discount.”

007: “My room smells of chowder, the air conditioning is on the fritz and these towels are really scratchy! AND I suspect my Vodka Martini has been stirred, not shaken!”

Moneypenny: “Oh, James.”

– neither Sean Connery nor Lois Maxwell

*Disclaimer – I’m sure this is a very nice place. The above is purely fictional and intended to be humorous. Really.*

Bechyne, North Dakota

Today’s Action Chanel 5 in-computer forecast: 90% chance of fake showers.

I wonder if I could ‘make it rain’ with ‘fake 100 dollar bills’?

Totally Kidding. There’s no need to alert those rather humorless dudes at the Treasury Department. Again.

Abandoned Schoolhouse

I’ve got… ‘the block’… just lost for words today. And I write this stuff out in advance. I swear. But my dog ate my homework.

Anyway, here’s a fake Van Dyke Print (abandoned one-room schoolhouse in Walsh County, North Dakota) to look over while I try put together a script for tomorrow’s show. Please stay tuned…
