I haven't visited BG for quite some time, but when I read the news on my way to work this morning, this was the only place I wanted to visit. I knew everyone would have fond remembrances. So much has changed for me over the past two years, but listening to the old shows always got me through.

I can't believe that undrafted rookie - out of that Running Back Factory, Central Michigan (Mid-American Conference) - ran for over 200 yards against the SF defense as Marshawns's backup last week.  Central Michigan?  Really?

Yep, Rawls performed great on Sunday.

Is he the bloke who refuses to do press conferences and compromised by saying "I'm here because I have honour my obligations" but nothing else?

No, that's running back Marshawn Lynch. His season is in question right now due to possible abdominal hernia issues. Proud Seahawks fan living the life in the beautiful Pacific Northwest.  8)

This is refreshing to me.  8)  In the past when I was out and about with friends or family, I'd notice something in ruin or just plain old and feel compelled to take a picture.  So I'd grab my cellphone and snap pictures.  They thought I was weird.  Why do you want to take a picture of a rusty light post in an empty parking lot?  I never really gave an answer.  To me it was seeing it in it's current state and imagining what the surroundings were like when it was a bright shiny new light post. 

A lot of my pics I just deleted off my phone or were lost for whatever reason.  I'm inspired to start clicking away again.  ;)

Get out there and shoot! It's up to the rest of us to document the abandoned. As a society, we don't value things and places. We let them self-destruct for no good reason. Today, I spent the day in a 125-year-old abandoned downtown building. Original wood, wallpaper layered on wallpaper, horse stables in the basement, etc. It's just sitting there. :(  I have more shots from yesterday that I still need to upload.

Very professional HorrorRetro.   Your B&Ws are so moving.  One can tell what your subjects are feeling without a word being said.

Thanks. Street photography is something I'm rather new to and I'm learning as I go. It's a genre of photography that I really love. Locally, someone saw my page and they have requested that I work with them to promote awareness of a homeless shelter that is sitting empty, so I've been doing that for a week now. It's brought me some really unexpected opportunities.

Like lots!!!   and I'll match you :)

I like it! I love anything abandoned or decrepit. Friends keep asking me if I'm scared going into theses sites alone, and I have to keep explaining I'm not. This is what I live for. I'd be scared if I didn't do this stuff.

I'm in the process of updating my page, but here are some of my shots. Galleries are listed under the title.

People don't realize how EXTREMELY easy it is to get lost in the wilderness, and its not just in the national or state parks

That's true. I spend most of my free time in Mt. Rainier National Park, sometimes Mt. St. Helens, as well as other wilderness areas around my town.  Lately, I've been visiting ghost towns that you have to hike into, and I've been doing it alone or just with my dog. Despite spending a lot of time at Mt. Rainier and having a great sense of direction, last year, I somehow missed my trail back out of the woods. I backtracked at least 5 or 6 times before I found it again. I was like it had just closed up and disappeared and then finally reappeared. It was bizarre. I can't chalk it up to the paranormal. I guess I somehow just missed it. That had never happened to be me before, and it was quite scary. Had I panicked and just kept going deeper into the woods, who knows how long I might have been out there.  Paulides' stories used to really freak me out. Since I've heard his various interviews at least 5 or 6 times now, the stories are starting to wear thin. It's not going to stop me from getting out there and exploring. There are just too many interesting things out there still to be found.

Here are some of the photos from recent ghost town trips and a trip to an abandoned missile launch facility.  The galleries are on the top, under the title.

I couldn't call in but I know Davenport is a common enough name but still wonder if he was any relation to "Davenport" of either Davenport, WA or The Davenport Hotel in Spokane.

For some reason I always imagined he had "Davenport" family money and scion of the family who invested his inheritance in an old missile silo and UFO hunting, which would be cool. Though I don't think so since he's had education and various jobs. But I still wonder about the name and if any connections since he lives in the area....

It is an interesting question. I've never heard him talk about having any familial relation to the town or to the Davenport in Spokane, but I've wondered the same thing since he relocated there.

I thought he still lived in that former missile silo somewhere in Washington state.  He spent a bundle, I remember him saying, too make it a home.

He lives, oddly enough, just outside Davenport, WA, which is in Eastern WA.

Baby your husband is ALL man.  NO doubt about it.  I cringe just reading the shit your man goes through.   I'm a pussy considering what you have shared.  Replaced a vertebrae?  Holy Jesus. 
I am glad they caught the thrombosis before shit really went sideways.  You got yourself a hell of a MAN.  And I will bet he's got himself one hell of a woman.
You both have my respect.

Thanks.   :) Yeah, the DVT was pretty scary. He's on daily Lovenox shots in the stomach now. I meant disk replacement, not vertebrae lol. They removed the disk and put in an artificial one. He now has a large scar across the throat. When people ask what happened, we joke he was the one who got away from ISIS.  ;D

So you haven't seen the Falkie sex tape yet?

I'd have to be institutionalized if I had.

VA is telling me that they will have to vacuum out my knees fm the all the bits and pieces that are in there.

"And he ain't gonna jump no more!  Gory, gory......"

Yep, after 20 years of Army active duty, my husband had his second meniscus debridement last week. Several weeks earlier, he had a vertebrae removed and replaced with an artificial one. Several months before that, he had his first meniscus debridement and repair. Next stop full knee replacements. Complications to first debridement included deep vein thrombosis that we luckily caught in time. He still gets up at 4:45 and goes to PT and puts in a full day of work. Still does stuff around the house as well. It sickens me to see a man who is capable of doing something sucking from the taxpayers' teat and crying all the time about how hard he has it. It's one of the more disgusting things I've ever witnessed.

And PLEASE don't give me the Senior Citizen Disability shit. I work with a Nam Vet in his mid 60's  with no fucking legs that comes to work in a chair everyday and installs LAN WAN equipment!!  Another young girl with MS also in a wheelchair who is the best Damn Computer Engineer I know. So go fuck yourself with your bad knees and sinus. 

Amen. I think we all know people who have major medical issues who refuse to give in and suck the taxpayers' teats. My father-in-law had his kidney removed, has asthma, had two artificial knees, and is 73 and works full time doing maintenance. My husband has had three surgeries on his almost non-existent knees and had a vertebrae taken out and replaced with an artificial one due to injuries received during his now 20 years in the Army. He still gets up at 4:45 a.m. and goes to PT and then work. I have debilitating neck and back pain. I still get up at 4:45 and go to work in the clinic.

Unless someone is in a vegetative state, they can work. They may need some accommodations, but there is work available for them.

Gina, these are absolutely extraordinary. What beautiful shots. I'm envious of the beauty in your part of the country. Hope you're day is going well, lady.

Thanks! I was really luck to run into this guy. And for him to allow me to get so close was pretty cool. I wouldn't live anywhere else. I love it here. Have a great weekend!  :)

These are beautiful!!  I grew up in Seattle and you really have a gift of capturing the colors, magic and ambience of the PNW. Are your prints available for purchase?

Thank you!  I don't have the equipment to do my own printing, so I use a third-party company to print and ship my work. I have some of my favorites up there now. I still have tons to upload when I have time.

That reminds me. Can anyone remember what Hoagland's theory about Old Navy was? I remember he mentioned it once to Art when he retired (again) and were doing their last show together, and he was recalling it as a particularly memorable show but never mentioned any more about it. It has bugged me off and on ever since.

I was listening to that show live back in '94 or '95. Hoagland claimed that the Illuminati held meetings in Old Navy stores. But they were only specific Old Navy stores. You had to walk in and see striped rugby shirts that were priced at $19.50. If you saw those shirts at that price, you were in the right place for the meeting.  ::) As stupid as it sounds, it was entertaining way back then.

Those are really nice photos, maybe it'll be back out there again tonight.  I think it's a Northern Spotted Owl, do you live near old growth forest?

I do. We have a lot of huge, old cedars in the marsh. I, too, think it's a spotted owl.

Great photos!
Good news, if you will likely be able to hear Art's new show MITD on KLX-FM in your area! I'm jealous.

Thanks! Unfortunately, I don't get KXL unless I listen to it online. We do get KXL on the radio when we go camping down by Mt. St. Helens.

I usually take evening walks by the bay, since we live less than 5 minutes from the beach. Last night I decided to walk through the marsh behind my house instead. I'm glad I did. I had my first owl encounter! He let me get very close. He was as curious about me as I was about him. I love owls, so this was a really great experience.  :)   Not the best shots, since I didn't have the right flash on, but I got some okay shots.

Poor Patty probably developed her man hands from all the heavy lifting she did over the years, helping to clean the filth pit and carrying crap into storage. :(

He really would be in deep shit doing that. Our GP's and A&E (ER) staff are obliged to report evidence of suspected assault on children or vulnerable adults. The latter is open to interpretation and if the police were notified the details would likely focus on him being taken from her presence and allowing her to talk to someone without his implied wrath hovering over her.

It's the same set up here. Doctors are mandatory reporters of suspected abuse. It's kind of a challenge to him -- if there is no abuse going on, take her to the doctor and get her checked out. Constant bruising is not normal. There is a cause, and it's not sleeping on her stomach. Can you imagine the embarrassment a woman goes through when having to walk around in public looking like she's being beaten every day? It's time to put a stop to it. Take her in and get her a comprehensive physical with blood tests. If there's an underlying platelet deficiency, it can usually be easily rectified, and she can start living a more normal life and working on her almost non-existent self-esteem.

Both I and Kathy have said the bruises on her face are due to her sleeping on her stomach and her face got bruised because of it. NO physical abuse involved and she is NOT getting hit. How many times do WE have to say it before YOU and the others get it ?

We don't get it because it's illogical. People don't get ongoing bruises on their faces by resting their faces on a pillow and sleeping. Unless she has a purpuric syndrome, such as idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura, there is no logical reason why she's always walking around with bruises, especially on her face. Has she been seen by a physician for this? Does she have a low platelet count? Either she's being abused or she has a medical condition that needs treatment. There is no reason a woman should be forced to walk around covered with bruises. Take her to the doctor.

How long has he been on welfare?  Isn't there a limit to how long, or for how many years,  a person can get food stamps?
Georgie, your food stamps eligibility is important to you buying the fresh fruits and vegetables needed for your reconstruction.
Pls advise.

*Will somebody repost this for The Bulk to see?*

There are supposed to be limits, yes. However, I am acquainted with a couple who are the couples version of Falkie. They have been sucking the taxpayers' teat for over 22 years now. Neither work. They sit around all day and shop. The male plays a lot of video games. They are able to buy camera equipment, trips, etc. I tried reporting them several times, but the "authorities" did not care one bit.  They said it was not a waste of taxpayers' money if the couple got some benefit from it.  When one program cuts them off, their caseworkers find them other programs, and then they go back and reapply for the other programs. It's an endless cycle of waste and fraud.  >:(

The Panhandle.  CdA area.

Nice. I lived in both Pinehurst, which is near Wallace/Kellogg, and Laclede, which is closer to Sandpoint. I love the area, but I need to be close to the ocean, so I'm in western WA now.

You know, living in SoCal, I could just go out my front door and get a lot of this. 

Yep, Idaho,here I come.   Something like last in benefits paid out. No room for the stupid out here.

The only thing Falkie could do with land is fuck it up.

After viewing his apartment, I'm thinking the land will look like this after 6 months.

Sadly, you have none of those, and never will. Noory just feels sorry for you, and eventually he will run out of pity and move on to something else.

I don't think Noory feels sorry for him. I think Noory and Tommy ply him with attention because, like us, they see him as the butt of many jokes. Can you imagine the laughs Noory and Tommy have when they see Falkie bragging that he's going to be part of this new "TV" show? No, he's just getting punked by them, and he won't listen to any rational advice and realize he's being made fun of. It's really kind of sad.

Fantastic photography as usual. Jeez... What kind of flowers are those purple and pink pinwheels?

Thanks! Those are Osteospermum or generic name of African daisy. I had never seen them before, but they are apparently really catching on here in the PNW.

Last night's sunset. I think we have the best sunsets in the world.  8)

Huge marina fire that broke out just behind Chambers Bay where the US Open was being played.  Golf course is on the right. The irony of the Geico banner flying through the smoke cloud...latest reports of 4 million in damages.

Hey, dimwit !

Coming from you, that's a compliment. I guess it's better than fucking bitch, which is what you call the other women on this board.

Good luck with your land purchase lol.  ;D
