Where do they store all this stuff on the web? Landfill material, for your times of sheer boredom:
1. If you're too open-minded, your brains will fall out.
2. Don't worry about what people think; they don't do it very often.
3. Going to church doesn't make you a Christian any more than standing
in a garage makes you a car.
4. It ain't the jeans that make your backside look fat.
5. Artificial intelligence is no match for natural stupidity.
6. My idea of housework is to sweep the room with a glance.
7. Not one shred of evidence supports the notion that life is serious.
8. It is easier to get forgiveness than permission.

10. If you look like your passport picture, you probably need the trip.
11. Bills travel through the mail at twice the speed of checks.
12. A conscience is what hurts when all of your other parts feel so good.
13. Eat well, stay fit, die anyway.
14. Men are from earth. Women are from earth. Deal with it.

19. Junk is something you've kept for years and throw away three weeks
before you need it.
20. There is always one more imbecile than you counted on.

Turkeys and Turkey

Yesterday morning, while at the kitchen sink making coffee, these turkeys were strolling across the yard.

Not to be confused with the PT Cruiser which Amy would probably characterize as a Turkey.

It's the first day of Autumn here. The cosmos (flowers) have been fun this summer. The sunflowers, so dominant earlier are in the picture, but they're done for the year.

They continued their stroll across the yard and into the dry creek, disappearing just after this telephoto shot.
Turkey hunting is a very big deal around here.

Fall Turkey Hunts:
Fifty-four counties will be open to fall turkey hunting. A full listing will be included in the hunting guide. Those 54 counties will be open for quota shotgun/archery hunting on Nov. 13-19. The same counties will also be open to non-quota archery-only hunting with a bag limit of one turkey either-sex during all archery-only deer seasons for that county. Twenty-four will also be open to fall turkey hunting Dec. 13-17.

Wish these fellas well; the next time they're shot at probably won't be with a telephoto.

Progress - sewer pipes

The Meade at Avalon continues with its construction.
The color of the siding you see will not be the real color. It will be painted. It's probably cheaper for them to use just one color for all houses and get immigrant labor to paint.

Amy's excited to see the sewer pipes.

Progress... and a bonus!

The new house looked like this. The blue exterior will become fake concrete-based clapboards like the neighbors' house in the picture (taken last night). We forgot what color we chose, so again, Stay tuned!

The pretty brunette in the PT Cruiser is talking on her cell phone to someone in River Bend Currents. Who?

the Bonus

The link on the left, "A fun,handy Screen Capture for your PC", will take you to where you can get this:It's free! Hope you enjoy it.

You've gotta love Google

Recently I was able to re-visit Andersen Air Force Base on Guam in the Marianas Islands, thanks to Google Earth. Boeing B-52 bombers were launched from here to Southeast Asia.
Thought you might like to share the visit. Notice , in the foreground, the cliff at the end of the runway.

Someone whose pictures appear here in River Bend Currents was born on this island. Who?

From the mountains... to the oceans...

anytime you're stressed, come on back here. You've got to feel good just putting yourself into these picures. Life is good.

"While the storm clouds gather far across the sea,
Let us swear allegiance to a land that's free,
Let us all be grateful for a land so fair,
As we raise our voices in a solemn prayer. "

God Bless America,
Land that I love.
Stand beside her, and guide her
Thru the night with a light from above.
From the mountains, to the prairies,
To the oceans, white with foam
God bless America, My home sweet home.
