A Buck a Bone

This is a shot taken at a Barbecue Cook Off Competition. There were quite a few participants - all cooking up their prize winning entries. This shot shows a booth with lots of different sauces. I requested beef brisket "Hotter than Hell" and thought I was going to need to call the Fire Department, to put the fire out on my tongue. It was good - and it was HOT! Tickets were sold for $1 each, and for "A Buck a Bone" (one ticket) generous portions were served. Some even offered free grub. As I walked amid this small encampment of modern day travel trailers, smokers, campfires, and barbecue aroma - I couldn't help envisioning the scene as it would of possibly looked 100 years ago, with covered wagons, campfires, horses, and cowboys. I guess it was the moon, and stars of the night sky that set the stage for a little nostalgia.

Dogi Pot

Took a walk the other evening, in a park I'd been to before, and noticed something new. Not a bad idea, and possibly a great way to meet people. (winking at Jayne)

Cool cat

Another scene from the downtown streetscape collection. A cat that's caught two birds for dinner, or for fun? And, also laying on the ground were some discarded cigarette butts, to which the kids thought would make a fun photo.

Downtown lighting

This photo shows the style of planters and lighting along the sidewalks of downtown Wichita.

Drive Thru?

While this is a classic addition to the 1950's decor of this place,
it's not the recommended way to "drive through" at a fast food restuarant.

Through a window, looking in...

This photo is a double view, a view of the jeep outside at the drive-in window, and a view of the customer inside dining on fish. (not the fish from the previous photo!)

Something's fishy...

If I was that dragonfly, I think I'd be a bit nervous - afraid of becoming a snack for the fish.
