DJ has an F-Day today so I figured I'd take a vacation day. SO - here I am and since I have not been up for 3 hours already my brain is sort of fuzzy - SO - a short blog for a Monday.
I'm going to start this Monday off with something SO stupid and so insane that . . . .well . . . I gotta pass it on in hopes that anybody that tries this will have their gene pool stopped and we will no longer have to worry about that generation.
I'll join you all after the insanity.
SIGH - I think what is so intriguing about that video is just thinking what they will do NEXT to beat that!
Back to reality.
I was driving home Thursday on a cloudy stormy day and spotted a beam of sunlight striking a field in the distance. I quickly took the next exit onto small roads and spotted fields of yellow in the distance. I drove towards it and what I saw were fields and fields of sunflowers.
As luck would have it my camera had no memory card - OOPS - so I only had a point and click camera but took a mental note of where the fields were.
But now came the hard part. How do I shoot a field of sunflowers. I've seen hundreds of sunflower photos. Do I want to shoot something that has been done before? Can I help it? Geez - I feel ANY photo I take will just be a copy of what I have seen. Been there, done that.
So I thought I had an idea but the weather did not cooperate. DJ and I went out anyway - I took some photos and I'll go back with new ideas. Here is one of my attempts. Sunflowers were a learning experience.
OH - Mr. sunflower - I'm not done with you guys yet.
Thats it - time for coffee
Have a great Monday
Go Packers - there is a thought.
We watched the Vikings Friday night and I swear the announcers had a boner as they kept talking about awesome and wonderful Favre was. The fans were not as excited as the announcers but they were into him. I have no problem with Viking fans being excited. After all, all they NORMALLY see and all the world NORMALLY sees are his amazing moments. The 60 yard rockets for TD's and so forth.
I mean this in all seriousness amd am being totally honest - I hope they get the total Favre experience. I would like them to feel the exasperation of the bonehead "what were you thinking" plays.
They will have the 3 and 4 TD games but as favre gets more comfortable he will loosen and start "having fun", MARK MY WORDS.
Plus - the Vikings allowed 43 sacks last year. I have to think the Metrodome is a little harder then Lambeau Field. The announcers said that there will be 33% less sacks with Favre this year because he gets rid of the ball so fast, well, I think they forgot to factor in that Favre is not as mobil as Jackson. I think it's a trade off.
Brett will be on his back a lot and throwing in a hurry trying to make things happen.
Good luck Brent.
UPDATE - seems we're going to Ho-Chunk with DJ brother and wife (Don and Becky). What's the saying - What Goes to Ho-Chunk Stays at Ho-Chunk?
