No Trespassing Violators will be Prosecuted

If "No Trespassing Violators" (i.e. zero {0}) will be Prosecuted, then what is the point of putting up the sign???

Cutris was seen at the Minnesota State Fair with Marvin the Martian.

Shortly after, Cutris had apparently laid a giant egg! Just what Cutris and Marvin are planning is anyone's guess!

Weird-ass Signs!

Ummm... really? Wow... well there's nothing weird about that!

I really hope that "Pleasureland" isn't near that place where the cows are...

I realize there is probably a legitimate explanation for this one. That said, a "Nebulizer" sounds to me like a weapon from Star Trek, or maybe some kind of sex toy.
"The congressman was caught with his pants down, with a prostitute and a nebulizer!"

Express Shaman


Are you tired of waiting all day for your shaman to bring news from the "other world?"

Then you need, Express Shaman!

Express Shaman will "make contact" within 20 minutes, or you get your money and your pig back!


He was aware that he was different. He was the only white dude in the neighborhood. All the others were of a different race. They all knew him though, and usually he got along fine with everyone. Usually race didn't come up, except on rare occasions. They all liked the same things. They liked to spend warm summer days swimming in the lake. They hung-out around the dock, eating and chasing each other around. Life was good--as long nobody excluded him because of his color…

Cutris Meets Bones

It had been a long time since they had seen each other!
"You've lost weight!" Cutris said to his old friend.
They marvelled at how long it had been since they had last spoken. They remembered old times. It was fun to see each other again! But, alas... all too quickly, it was time to leave. But before they parted, Cutris snapped a picture...

Sauk Centre Fishing

We had a good time last year when we went to Sauk Centre, so we went again today. I caught a small northern from the fishing pier. We fished the dam too and I had a carp and large-mouth bass get away from me.

Trash Talking Inflatables

Ronald sat high above his hamburger empire.
"Pizza," he said, "Pizza wishes it were hamburgers!"

"You insulta my pizza!" I kill you!" Shouted the pizza chef.

I hope this situation doesn't get out-of-hand. Somebody might blow-up!

This "free TV" that (still) "works," has been sitting outside for over a week through about three rain storms. I'm sure it still works though... Still no "takers" after a whole week!!!

My all-time favorite was at a different house in my neighborhood. They had a "free" sign next to some old tires!

Maybe they should try a sign that says, "free toxic waste! Please take it so I don't have to pay to get rid of it!"

Someone from my wife's family is in the emergency unit of the hospital tonight. It's funny how the "world" runs so slowly in "emergency." We've been here about six hours with no end in sight.

There is also a "fall risk" in this situation. Again... it seems funny that the floors are hard and smooth.

I could find a lot more "funny" things, but I'm really tired and "they" keep this place too cold!

Cutris Argues with Plastic Dude

Cutris was photographed recently, arguing with Plastic Dude. Some wonder if it has anything to do with Cutris' history with Stickman. Readers may remember that Cutris was exonerated of charges after Stickman accused him of discrimination.

When asked about the incident, Cutris would only say that he had a "discussion" with Plastic Dude--who apparently wanted Cutris to slow down. Readers may also remember that Cutris was shown running 88 miles-per-hour recently.

Band Cleaning Day

Today was band cleaning day. We clean the practice spot in Dave's basement every five to ten years--whether it needs it or not.

The day the music stopped...

Nine Mile Creek Images

We hiked at Nine Mile Creek earlier this week. Here are a few pictures.

I was feeling pretty good, so I had to run to the "harmacy," to get something to make me sick...

What if you have to "take a dump???"

Gateway Trail

We biked 30+ miles on the Gateway Trail Saturday. I've included a couple of pictures.

Brown Bear Brawl

Among the fun things we've been doing this summer, we were able to see these two brown bears wrestling at the Minnesota Zoo.
