Misc. Pictures of the Last few Days

On Tuesday morning as I biked home from shopping I came upon this man coming up Hines and turned onto Clarinda with a walking cane he didn't need, as you can see. He was swinging the cane instead of using it as a prop. So I took a second look at the walking cane and sped up my bike pedals in order to catch up with him, asking him if I can have a picture of his cane, which he most gladly obliged. His cane is his own artistic doings.

Kenny Borkholder from Centreville Michigan had the right-of-way when he crossed Beneva at the Bahia Vista light, and the car that whipped around the corner was in the wrong. The result is a triangle bike wheel. Even if bikers have the right-of-way, we still need to keep our eyes open on the backside of our heads.

Today when I went to take a shot at Kenny's bike, I spotted a private shuffleboard in the quietest part of Pinecraft and so I biked closer and watched for a while. This is the better place to get good pictures of shufflers as they are not fenced in by a fence, nor crowded in by a crowd of people. I love the looks of this shuffler, the carefulness of lining up and aiming just right. He must be a perfectionist.

And then I returned home to find my landlord painting his house. I have never seen him carry a shuffleboard stick or a Boche Ball. Instead I see him with carpenter tools.


  1. They still are having bike accidents i see in pinecraft.Richard. Lebanon,pa. www.amishstorys.com

  2. That shuffleboard player is taking this game very seriously. He must have money riding on it. ;-)

  3. Bikes never win in accidents with cars. I am assuming Kenny was ok? The only thing "triangularized" was the bike wheel?

    Great pics, Katie!
