The cicadas are leaving their empty shells hanging in the trees.

Putnam County Pickers

I was sorting through some old files and ran across this photo from the early 1980s. If you lived near Charleston in the 70's and early 80's, you remember the Putnam County Pickers. This was when they were doing a concert with the Symphony and they were in the studio to get a portrait in tuxedos and (as I often did in those days) at the end of the session I told them to stick their fingers in their noses. Funnily enough, people often did it and then were surprised when I actually took the photo. This one took on special meaning because of their group name and they ended up using it on a poster later.

My Heart

Here's the offending organ. It was a very minor heart attack involving a small blood vessel. Everything else looks pretty good. I hope to be mountain biking again in a few weeks.

Sorry for not blogging....

I'm in the hospital. I had a weird episode with my heart yesterday. I went mountain biking on Saturday and I felt perfectly fine... and I feel perfectly fine today as I sit being bored in the hospital. The docs are going to look at my heart tomorrow and see if they can see anything. I thought about trying to photo-blog from the hospital but so far that's not going well. I hope to be back at work soon.

Biking, Little Creek Park

I went mountain biking in Little Creek Park this morning. The weather was incredible. Most people around here go biking in Kanawha State Forest but lately I prefer the newer trails in LCP.

The little mushroom is quite small... perhaps the size of a dime. It was growing on a log next to the car. I guessed that it might make a better photo from below. I didn't really know until I got home and looked at it on the computer.

This rhododendron was very confusing to me. How could these holes appear like this? I finally realized that a bug had eaten through the three leaves when it was still closed.

Kentucky Sunrise

There's something you don't see every day...

... a Delorean. When I commented on it to the owner she said "Oh that? We've got two".

Interesting things...

... that I saw in Huntington on Wednesday.

A cowboy and his dog...

... a suspension bridge in the woods...

... a raptor flying high...

I looked this up and I think it's a "Broadwinged Hawk" which I don't recall seeing before. Can someone confirm this?
