A Couple of Pictures from a Road Trip

Doug and I have been traveling again. Last week, we made a quick trip to Missouri. Friends of ours, Randy and Donna, are Christian missionaries in Panama, and they brought a teen orchestra to the States to put on some concerts in the Kansas City area. We wanted to see them, but we weren't too excited about driving the 1,200-mile round trip to Missouri, so soon after our driving trip out West in September. However, we were persuaded by the "please, please, please" e-mail that Randy sent a few days before they were to fly out of Panama.

This post really isn't about Randy and Donna or the concert. It's just to explain why we were traveling again. And to share just two photos from that drive to Missouri.

The above picture isn't very sharp because I was shooting through our windshield and through the rear window of the car in front of us. But, hopefully, you can still see the napping dog in the back seat. It appears to be a Yellow Lab. He has his head tucked between two headrests and is sound

This cloud just struck my fancy as it reminded me of the Nike "swoosh," only in reverse.

That's it for today, folks. Nothing profound...just a little whimsy.

I hope all of you here in the U. S. are planning to get out and vote your values today.

Remember...bad politicians are elected by good citizens who don't vote.


  1. I voted by mail a week ago. So glad it's almost over.

  2. Awww, the dog asleep in the backseat is adorable. I definitely see the Nike logo. Hey, you could've fooled us by flipping the picture. I am voting today with prayer and pride! Our polling place is so close we can walk to it. :)

  3. Stephen - Good for you. We voted early, too, because we were going to be away from home on election day. Like you, we'll be glad when the ads are gone from television.

    Thanks, Steve.

    Theresa - I know he's hard to see in there, but it was just so cute I had to try to get a picture. Glad you enjoyed it.

    Gail - I never even though of flipping the Swoosh! Leave it to you. With prayer is definitely the best way to vote. Good for you.

  4. The sleepy pooch is so cute. I have to say I didn't know what I was looking at until I read it though. And the cloud.. my first through was that you found a bobsled!

    1. Hilary - A bobsled, huh? I had to look up some bobsled images, but I guess I can see where you would get that. With your creative mind, you would be a fun person to look at clouds with. :)

  5. We voted a couple of weeks before the election during early voting here. Unfortunately, good people do vote for bad politicians sometimes... Our country just seems to accept corruptness.... Makes no sense.

    1. We voted early, too, Betsy, because we knew we'd be out of town on Election Day. I agree with your analysis of the situation.
