Some pictures I took last night around dusk.


The Alien’s scout ship! (04Jul2004)



The Mothership lands! (04Jul2004)

Okay, so digital cameras don’t do a good job catching fireworks (04Jul2004)

The best part about fireworks in Merrimack is we can see them from the
neighbor’s driveway and walk 30 seconds and be home. The worst part
is always the bugs…

Since tomorrow is Good Friday…

Here is a
nice condensed version
of Mel Gibson’s “The Passion of The Christ”

The musical score is amazing.

I’ve seen things, I’ve seen them with my eyes…

I've seen things
I've seen them with my eyes
I've seen things

handbags
cheese
