A Poo with a View


We camped in the absolute boondocks of the Maze District of Canyonlands National Park...it was a 45 mile dirt road to the ranger station, then another 25 miles of "high clearance technical four wheel drive" to get to our campsite. Since it's so remote, there are no pit toilets at the campsite like there are at other backcountry sites, so you have to provide your own toilet (digging a cathole is verboten). The plastic seat is courtesy of Kmart, and you can buy special kits that consist of a plastic bag, some kitty litter, a bit of toilet paper and some sanitary wipes. And yes, the view was spectacular.

3/3: With two friends at a local nursing home. The one on the right came back from the literal brink of death, surviving a septic bladder infection. She spent two weeks in a medically-induced coma, then a week recovering in the hospital, and another week at the nursing home.

She said, "Come up and see me, Dougie! I'm BORED! Sit with me and Sandy on the bed!"

I said, "Sure...but who's gonna take our picture?"

:D

We ran across this impromptu photo shoot in a riverbed near Redstone, Colorado. My wife Linda is a spinner/weaver/knitter and immediately identified the spinning wheel as an Ashford Country Spinner Mk.I. We probably sat there for ten minutes taking photos of these two, and they never even looked up at us.
