Happy Thanksgiving

I'm not sure what I'll be doing today. Chase invited me over to have dinner at about 1 or 1:30. I guess Travis is in San Antonio. I've been invited to a friend's house too but I have no idea if I'll be going there yet...that's at about 5:00. I haven't been thinking much about what I'll be doing today.

I've added a little gizmo to the sidebar. It's a slideshow that runs through some of my photos. It just shows some of the photos I've posted here. I'll add some new stuff that I haven't posted at a later date. It is kind of cool but I haven't really decided if I'll keep it.


I've been playing with the little slideshow gizmo and I think I'll keep it for a while. If you click on it it will open a new page, my Picasa album. At the bottom right corner is a map. If you click on it it will open a large map with all the locations of the pictures...kind of cool. Check it out.

Later...and Happy Thanksgiving

Ryukyu Flying Fox

Pteropus dasymallus inopinatus, is the scientific name for the huge bats on Okinawa. My last night there I decided I'd try and photograph one or two. It wasn't easy but I did manage to get a couple of pictures. One is pretty good the other is ok...they fly fast and you can't hear them coming...they're spooky too.

Here is my first usual I didn't see him coming.

This was my second attempt...this little guy nearly made me jump out if my skin...he kind of snuck up on me.

Well that's all of them. I did try to get more but these guys wouldn't cooperate.

OSU 14 Michigan 3

Four in a row...poor Lloyd and company. I hope he doesn't retire.

Well Lloyd Carr did announce his retirement on Monday. No more Lloyd to kick around...too bad.
