That sounds like a plan!

Vert Granny Smith on her way to work with me



Another pic of Vertie all buckled in



Vertie looking at the spedometer to make sure I'm not speeding



Now she's checking out the stereo



She's looking down the road through the windshield.

Doesn't Michael Dell live in or around Austin? You mean to tell me that some other computer nerd has a nicer house than him?

Looks like Vryce has a marijuana air freshener in his car.

Can someone host some pics for me? Comcast is being a pain and won't let me log in via FTP.

I didn't say it was the nicest house, I said it was the coolest. From everything I've heard, Richard throws the best parties, and his house is filled with some of the most unusual stuff you'll ever see inside a private residence.

I had trouble finding a page describing his house, but here's a letter written by a guy who helped throw one of Richard's Halloween parties. It describes the house (and the party) fairly well.

But, I do know where Michael Dell lives now. In the picture with the Loop 360 bridge, it would be just off to the left. Perhaps I'll drive down there in the next few days and check it out.

Is there a catch and release policy for these? Kinda like an exchange program? I have some sights I would be interested in sharing with a less fortunate crayola. Plus there are 3 Hooters in OKC.

Woman hands has got to go. Sometimes you have to break off a relationship for the good of the children. This is one of those times.

Oh. Well, all I needed to read was that he has secret passages in his house and I was sold. Ever since I was a kid and I saw Webster, I've always wanted secret passages in my house. My friends think I'm crazy for wanting secret passages, but I think they're cool.

Picture of a road made famous by a michigan rapper



Vertie travelling on the freeway taking pics of an infamous Michigan freeway exit. Pics aren't that great. its hard to take a pic while driving 70mph on the freeway.







A pic of the sign with no crayon present so that you can see the sign better.

My crayon is mountain biking on an island with my wife and me this week.

Here is the Coast Guard ship he saw while riding in my truck, on the ferry:


Here is the Mackinac bridge he saw. He didn't even show up at 10x zoom:


Here he is on the deck of our cabin:



Maybe tomorrow I'll take him to the othe side of the island so he can see Mackinac Island.

took Blue out around DC on saturday but most of the pics made it too hard to see Blue. will try some more later.

here we are at the washington monument. i think we had some point-envy going on...


we also took him to the national gallery where we introduced him to andy warhol (BTW, this is my girl hand )


and to the sculpture garden for a little meditation...

Okay, I'm getting ready to go out to the game today with maroon:


Driving the Kennedy to Comiskey, I mean the Cell:



Watching the Sox pound the Rangers 13-2:


Maroon enjoying the game:


About to attack a Ranger:


I was planning on storming the field and attacking the first base coach with the crayon but I chickened out.
