Delenda Est Carthago

Why not delve into a twisted mind? Thoughts on the world, history, politics, entertainment, comics, and why all shall call me master!

I plan on being the supreme dictator of the country, if not the world. Therefore, you might want to stay on my good side. Just a hint: ABBA rules!

If you don't like nature, Picture Day has no use for you!

Yes, it's a lot of green today! After we left Seattle in 1996 we took the long way back to Portland - we drove completely around the edge of the Olympic Peninsula, that big thumb thing west of Seattle. It's chock full of nature! Let's allow the nature to just wash over us!







Apparently, if the propaganda is to be believed, on the Olympic Peninsula sits the only rain forest in North America. That might be true or not, but I can't remember the definition of rain forest - it looks like a forest to me. It's still cool. Like this gnarled tree:


Lots of water up there, too. Nice streams and such:


Finally, that's my mom. She's standing on a petrified tree. You can barely tell it's a tree, but it sure is!


We didn't drive through Aberdeen, which is where Kurt Cobain lived, but apparently we didn't miss anything. We did stop at Port Angeles, which is actually a nice little town. The Olympic Peninsula is a pretty nifty place. If you're ever in Seattle, head west to check out some nature!

Come to Oz - we have lots of rainforest! Gorgeous photos there! It's an amazing feeling to be surrounded by that lush rainforest green.

Chosha - I've been down under, and have some nice pictures of Tasmania. I have posted them in the past. I loved Australia, and would love to go back, because I missed a great deal of it.

We DID drive through Aberdeen. Remember? It wasn't exactly a garden spot.

We said it's no place to be if you're depressed, and it's no wonder Kurt shot himself.

Aberdeen is not nice at all. In fact, I think of the term Shithole... though a better grade of one than Phoenix.

Really, if you'd like to spend some time, drive along the pacific coast to the top of Washington, across Washington at the Canadian border and back down through the peninsula. It was the only time I've seen snow on the beach. And Port Angeles is worth the stop.

Yeah, I remember Aberdeen now. Thank you, wife o' mine, for pointing out my faulty memory.

We spent a few nights in Port Angeles last year, took the ferry over to Victoria. Fantastic time.

Yea for Roxy! It's not often that I am more subtle than someone else! "Shithole" is exactly what I was thinking as I typed my comment about Aberdeen!

I'm looking forward to seeing you & the Mr. on Saturday.
