1. On the way out...we came across a Weather Balloon that was 19 miles ahead of us, and 120,000 foot altitude.
2. Here is what it looked like out the window to the naked eye.
3. The Pepermill is a mandatory stop on your Las Vegas tour...of course we did not eat here this trip.
4. The Strip...
5. The Crew...Welcome aboard Joe

Although Barrett did not Start on Offense or Defense, he saw plenty of playing time at the first game of the 2007-2008 LogRog Wildcats who are trying to continue the undefeated season from last year. Last years 7th grade team went 6-0, and with a strong showing last week against Reeds Spring, these now 8th grade class looks like they are in good shape to repeat. This coming week, they play TWICE (Yeah, I know...weird) on Tue (at Buffalo) and Thur (at Bolivar). Come out and support #8 as he works his way into a starting spot on this talented 8th grade squad.

An anonymous group if individuals made the annual Labor Day (Federal Trespassing) pilgrimage to the Devils Den. This time we brought a rope. The rope was like what my dad always said about a four-wheel drive truck. ...."It just allows you to get stuck in a worse place (than a two wheel drive truck)".... One of the more adventurous of the group (not to mention the one in the best physical shape) decided to lower himself down the 20 feet or so beyond the ledge that we had previously ventured. As you can see in Photo #3. To truly appreciate the scale of this crag in the earth look carefully...that is a person standing at the tip of the black water that makes up the unknown & unexplored underwater portion of the Den.
True to the tale of our undisclosed tour guide from last year told, under the ledge that we were standing on, there is a cave that goes back some 30 feet. Unknown is the contents of said cave. Spelunkers we are not. More accurately we would be described as purveyors of Ozarkian Dare Devilry. Also we are not very prepared with a good light, nor did we think of sending the camera down there to take some flash photography.
As we started to leave, we noticed a shadowy figure (with quite a fine figure I might add) watching over us, just adding more suspense and mystery to the secluded location. Weird.
When much to my wandering eye's should behold but a drawer, and a Burch...the contents untold.
Guess the contents of the drawer, you're a psychic...guess the contents of the Burch...you're an ultrasound machine.
