You’ve got to hand it to me: Not only is the title of this post an example of reckless redundancy (all mish-mash’s are mix of miscellany) but it’s also an example of awful alliteration.
Anyway, I’m back from my third trip down to Iowa in the last month. My dad seems to have recovered fully from the aches and pains caused by his auto accident, but I’m still going down there to take him to his out-of-town appointments with his eye specialist, his cardiologist, and his oncologist since he’s not allowed to drive outside of his little town.
While in the town of Oelwein, I did a some more bike riding. Nothing was related to the monthly challenge though, except in the most inane way. I’ll start with a few pictures.
When I got back to Oelwein, I made a point to visit one of the town’s water towers. Actually it was a re-visit. Here is a video of the first visit, which I recorded two weeks ago.
I thought about posting that video last month, but it didn’t relate to the Face Challenge. Today, I came up with an ingenious idea to use it in connection with the Food Challenge. The following video, filmed yesterday, will explain it all.
I’m sorry about the grossness of the Garceaus, but I’m not sorry about my interest in a nice industrial coating project eight years after I retired from that business. It’s pretty cool stuff, and the sandblasting & painting of a water tower (or factory or oil refinery) is not nearly as hazardous to the environment as it was 30 years ago. The Garceaus, however, are just as hazardous as they were back in the day.
Now I’m back in Minnesota, and it’s a good thing too. It seems the Cycle365 Food Challenge hasn’t seen much traffic in the last few days. I’m here to pump you up.
I’ll finish with pictures of the three grocery stores in MY Town. Grocery stores are where most Minnesotans buy their food.
I forgot about the WalMart grocery store. OOPS!
I only have two more pictures to show. They were some unusual cloud formations.
