That's almost an alliteration. So this cost $4.50 at the Goodwill, and is CLEARLY worth EVERY penny!

General Sherman

This is seriously one big tree. Thanks to Richard Goode, my new "rock buddy" for taking the photos and stitching them together!
How seriously big is this tree? Let me tell you. This tree, while not the tallest, broadest or oldest, is the BIGGEST LIVING THING ON EARTH by volume.
That's how seriously big it is.

Produce Irony

This is a cucmuber purchased at the grocery store here in California.

Big Indian Chief of Oildale

Karen and I went to the Corral Cafe last night for a beer with Kris after a long, hard, week's work. The reason we decided (I decided) to go there is because earlier in the month we had driven by this place and saw the giant (politically incorrect, I'm sure) Indian standing there, greeting passers by with a raised hand. He stands tall, more impressive than David, with a poem between his legs. Please note the trees for scale. Beers were $2.50 a pint. The Corral Cafe is my new favourite bar of all time.
