The "tide you over" post

Worry not blog readers. I've got several posts in the proverbial cyber-chamber but am waiting on photos from various sources to complete them.

I don't know if it's my inner child or complete lack of maturity that makes me laugh when I see these things, but sometimes a picture is able to paint a picture that my words simply can not. It would be a damn shame if other parts of the world weren't exposed to this "laugh when old people fall" type humor.

On the way out from fishing with Monk and his son last month, I spotted this gem. I snapped a picture with his camera to catch this glimpse of genius because, after the warm reception I received from the "Balzac Coffee" incident in Germany, I promised myself that if I was ever in doubt if something was funny, that it probably was and therefore needed to be documented.

You're welcome.

I think I like this one better than the one in Germany, nice work. My question would be...was it awkward to ask your fisherman friend to take this picture? Did he see the humor? Nice work...good laughs!

Yeah, it was a huge debate in my head how I was going to ask him as we where enter the car, that I needed to get out. I told him that it was "really bad english" and he shrugged and gave me the camera. What I should have said was, "Beer me, camera!"

That's awesome! I think Fuchs lubrication should be given to everyone.
It should come in sample packs in the mail.

So when are we going to get a real blog? I think this has been a pretty long "tide you over." Your readers are waiting... :)
