One of my obsessions is to "line stuff up". And I got this plane pretty durned close to perfectly lined up. Doesn't mean much to the rest of you, but I went "ahhhh" when I saw this on my computer. Ahhhh.

He kept wanting his picture taken

In my limited experience with photographing horses, this one was unusual in coming right up to me and seeming to want me to take his picture. Then he'd change his mind just as I was about to press the button. But I got him this time.

Although why Lynn would allow herself to be carried in a wheelbarrow by her arch-nemesis Sirchuckles is up for discussion.

You'd think the park district would have solved the troll problem, but evidently work needs to be done.

This pair was parked on the siding at the BNSF yard all day. I saw them from my hotel room in the Ramada in the morning and when I went over after my seminar, they were still there. And a tip of the hat to BNSF - I like their livery better than UP's. And BNSF seems to keep 'em cleaner.
