Two paths diverged in a yellow wood . . .

April 5, 2007 — 7 Comments

Holy smokes do I have a topic backlog. It all comes, I suppose, of eating too much honey . . .wait, er . . . where am I?

Oh, yes. The backlog.

I have really got to figure out a way to post more often. I love doing this. Just don’t have the hours. The frustrating thing is that I’ve got so many freekin’ ideas to peck out that I just can’t get to.

And now, despite my low post rate, I’ve been honored with this (more on that later).

So now I feel like I’m obligated to live up to it, which is good because I started this blog with the intention of delivering quality and hopefully even some value every once in awhile. The award is an excellent reinforcer of that intention. At least one other blogger appreciates the effort–which, truth be told, really kicks ass.

But sometimes you just have to post the quick silly thing–or nothing at all–and not feel guilty or stupid about it. So that’s what I’m doing here today.

There are a couple of signs around town that I think are kind of, um, what’s the word . . .quirky. Every small town has its quirks right?

Here’s an example of one of ours.

Because we do everything we can around here to keep our youth always on the right path:

  1. It truly is a short distance from the cradle to the grave. Pretty much everything in this small town is quirky, especially the massive amount of old people. And Ronny Schenkel on his golf cart.

    I’ve really been enjoying your blog, Chris. I hope you are ready for the lamb on Saturday! Mmm, mint jelly…..

    Glad you’ve been enjoying it Nick. I sure as heck fire have enjoyed creating it. It’s great to see you here.

    I like your idea of focusing on cooking in your blog. ‘Course having had a Blogger blog and now a WordPress blog, I gotta say I much prefer WordPress. But we can talk about all that later–if you like.

    Can’t wait for Saturday. Your cooking always ROCKS. We’re bringing strawberry pie.



  2. Very funny sign post! I love the high and falls also! I do enjoy your blog! Keep writing!

    Thanks again Mark, I will. And you do the same. One day I hope to have as many quality posts as you.


  3. You have converted me, Chris. Click the link.

    For some reason, the following conversation just popped into my head, “Ah, Camelot. Camelot. It’s only a model… Quiet, YOU!”

    Heh, no looking back now. Have fun!

  4. LoL Chris, that was great! I love the signs. We have a stop sign that some teenagers decided to spray paint…(yeah, whole other topic) that says, “eating the squirrles” beneath the word STOP.

    That’s funny Kenz,

    I’ve got a couple more sign pictures, so stay tuned. Then today, as I was kicking around with my girls (daughters, heh) I saw at least 3 other things that would have made great shots. I’ve got to figure out a way to bring my camera along with me more often. There’s just too much material out in the real world.

    Good stuff. Good to see you back on your feet again.

    Thanks again for stopping.


  5. nice.


    I’m enjoying skipping through the pages of your blog too. Either I like it, or I’m excited at the prospect of making friends with an ex-con . . .or both (insert nervous chuckle here).

    I especially appreciated your post on the sins of our fathers. I might have had a thing or two to say about that one as well, but you seemed to strike such a nerve that it filled up your comments without me.

    And I hate to be just another voice in the crowd–you know.

    Anyway, and in either case, thanks for stopping by.
