a different kind of art.....:) like! gr.roeli

As an aside on the subject of disabilities - if you are interested: This short film on YouTube about amputee training during WWII states that the amputees were required to pass their driving test in an unmodified vehicle.

It does not mention that the president owned two Ford convertibles that were highly modified. I think the No Help Wanted film may be a little inaccurate in that guys using hooks or artificial legs probably always needed slight modifications to the car's controls.

The rangerette told me that they get all kinds of FDR fanatics visiting the Little White House: A few years ago a visitor showed up and went straight into the president's bathroom, coming out exclaiming loudly that the evidence had all been covered up. The rangers asked him what he meant. He said that the bullet holes had all been repaired or plastered over. He said during the War there had been another assasination attempt when a Japanese spy had slipped past all the guard posts and snuck into the president's bathroom, shooting the president while he was sitting on the toilet, before being wrestled to the floor and arrested. The ranger staff don't know where the guy got this story.

sad sad sad... was it a meteor?! best wishes

FYI, the cave is on private property and posted by the homeowners as No Trespassing. Also the cave was excavated decades ago all the way down to bedrock.

This is a work of art by the son of the famous UC Berkeley archaeologist Robert F. Heizer. Michael Heizer has done several of these in the Great Basin where his father used to dig. They strongly resemble archaeological excavations for some reason.

Thanks for your comment yardbird. I've corrected the title. Did you see the one forced down over Albania in 1957 and now in the Girocaster castle museum?

I've also begun taking pics in the four cardinal directions from markers, a way to record what things looked like the day the record was made. Here in AZ, so many place I thought would be open and undeveloped or at least stay agricultural my whole life have become housing and shopping or scattered development with somebody's little homestead every 5 to 40 acres. So I try to catch the moment. When I return to places I grew up, I can barely find places I lived.

Whatever you decide, enjoy. I like your work.


Nice and wide road. I cannot remember having seen this ever in Europe. ++++ Jürgen sends you his greetings from Frankfurt-upon-Main, Germany
