So we blended in with the elementary school outing did we? Well that's one way of skipping work. Hope they didn't leave you at the Asylum or maybe you'd fit right in. Just don't get back on the short bus when leaving.

Fcukin' vandals, how do they work?

P.S. Please enjoy, I blinded myself for you, gentle reader.

Don't I know that one. When I was taking my vulture movies, I was tracking one across the sky and suddenly I remembered something my mom said when I was little.

I'm so glad you gave us a field trip today! But I forgot to pack my brown bag lunch. Damn, and I had Ho-Ho's in there.

Loved the pics, but the commentary is what made my day. :-)

okjimm said...

photo journalism at it's finest!!! I TOO wish to get off the freeway at Marginal Roads.

Karl Franz Ochstradt said...

I'm with okjimm, drawn to the Marginal Roads!

And quoting The Eagles? Henley or Frey? Slam those fraternities!

Also, Mr Oxtrot asked me why you called him a moron.

Randal Graves said...

nunly, field trip was yesterday, today we just hung out in the parking lot smoking dope.

okjimm, I can't believe it's not Marginal.

karl of the österreich, it's all Greek to me. Sir, I called him a punk!

What strange plants are growing in that there culture garden. And I had to drive on Marginal Roads to get there.

We have a statue of Copernicus in one of our parks, was walking close by it a few weeks ago and heard one teenager ask another who he was, I about went and slapped both upside their heads when the answer was, "I think he was the lead in a 80's metal band."

Demeur said...

Now I know your lying. The box factory went to China years ago. Nice try though.

Randal Graves said...

tom, special plants they are.

BB, are you suggesting it wasn't a statue of Tipton or Downing?

demeur's 99 cent disguise, no sir, they're assembled here from parts manufactured *in* China. Not every illegal is cleaning Goldman Sachs' executive washroom.

Looks as though Blogger ate another comment of mine. Maybe Blogger choked on it, because when I went to mention this here last night, a notice informed me no comment could be left; Blogger was in read only mode.
