Halloween is almost here. Do kids still Trick or Treat where you live? Wherever I go they don't seem to do it as much as they did when I was a kid. We seem to be losing one of the best times of the year. I hope I'm wrong about that. Anyway, I wish you all a Happy Halloween!
Talk to you later.

I took all of the Halloween pictures from the last several posts at Ponca State Park in Nebraska. I didn't reveal that little bit of information before because I didn't think it was needed, but they deserve some credit for putting up their cool Halloween display. I have one more post of these to go.
Talk to you later.

I look at the guillotine in the picture now and think of how long it must have taken to build it. There used to be a machine where I used to work that looked very similar. It even had an up and down moving part like that blade. So I know with a few small modifications that this prop guillotine could actually work. Interesting.
I'll talk to you later.

It's getting close to Halloween so I'll be torturing you with scenes like this one at least a few more times. There are some good ones and some bad ones. I'll let you decide which is which. I liked them all. I decided to keep these posts short so I'll talk to you later.

He sure must have liked it there because he didn't move the whole time I was there. I see bales of hay like that all over the place around here, but I never knew they were good to rest in like that. I finally figured he didn't want to talk to me so I moved on about my business. It was a pretty good day.
I'll talk to you later.

I'm kind of distracted today. There's been a lot of good geeky stuff going on for me in the past few days. The day before yesterday I got a new robotic vacuum cleaner. It vacuums the floor by itself while I sleep. I always wanted something like that for purely nerdy reasons. It's doing a marvelous job so far.
There's also a big update to Windows 8 that came out yesterday. My internet connection is too slow for me to have downloaded it all the way already, so I'm right in the middle of that. The computer geek part of me can't wait for this. I'm excited.
I don't make it a big secret that I'm one of the few people who don't really like fall. This season kind of depresses me. I see everything from the warm weather months going away. I try to be more positive about it every year, but it doesn't seem to work.
I'm going to try to look for good things about fall once again this year. The color changing leaves. The big flocks of birds. Oh, I don't know, other stuff. I'm trying. I wish something would work to make me as happy about it as everyone else is. If you have any ideas, let me know. Talk to you later.

I've been back there a few times now, even a few times with my good camera, but so far there have been no other buffalo out there where I could see them. I've been told that they let them out there a lot, but I have yet to see that.
I couldn't get any good pictures of them on that first trip because the fence was in the way. As for what they do with the buffaloes at this farm, I'd imagine they do the same thing other farms do with cows. Maybe buffalo burgers and buffalo steaks. I don't know. I don't try to think about that part too much.
Like I said before, I've still been going past there as much as I can with my good camera. So I should have some better pictures one of these times. I've also been going past the place where they roam free and wild. One of these days I'll show you some buffaloes in their natural habitat.
I keep thinking that I should get some more pictures of wild turkeys. I see them several times a week right now. I wonder how they'd turn out with my phone camera. I guess I'll find out. Talk to you later.

Then just about the time I thought maybe I should get moving again, I woke up the next morning and the old dizziness from the car accident came back in full force. So I've been battling with that and some nausea the whole time.
I decided to rest until it was gone all the way. I've done absolutely nothing for the past two weeks. But now I'm glad to say that I feel better and I'm finally back. I'm heading to the doctor in a few days just to make sure everything's fine now.
These pictures are really about that very top one anyway. I just like the way it looks. I took these pictures a little before all of the weirdness happened to me. I'll have some new stuff as soon as I start getting back out again. That should start today.
And now that I know where to find the buffalo I'll be lurking around there for a few pictures if I can catch them while they're out. I've seen one now, but I didn't have a camera with me. it's not too far away so I'll maybe drive by there any time I'm out. Okay, that's enough for now. I'll talk to you later.
