Sorry todays pics were so

July 25, 2004

Sorry todays pics were so late. I was up in Allegan Michigan at the best damn antiques show in the midwest. It's about 150 miles from Chicago and I can't say enough good things about the place. Lots of great stuff at good prices.

Me fill many bags.
Me like it.


The next show is August 29th. If anyone needs a ride let me know.

Real Horses

July 12, 2004

There is a natural madness to every flea market I've ever been to.
So, yesterday I'm at the flea market (looking for pics to make you happy). It's a big market with mostly Mexican vendors. You've got guys selling everything from boxes of mangos to just plain junk. At the back of the market there's a big commotion going on so being the natural gawker that I am, I go on back to see what's up. There in the rear of the flea market, are four of Chicagos finest arguing with the a guy who has four miniature ponies. You know, the ponies they put the kids on to take the poloroid pics for a souvenir. The cops want to see the licenses for the "horses". The pony guy's pleading with the cops not to take the horses away from him.

I'm standing next to a friend of mine watching the whole scene and he turns to me and says "What the big deal? It's just for the kids. I mean it's not like they're real horses or anything". Another guy standing near us overhears this and says to us "If they're not real why are the cops there?"

Sorry there's only one pic today but this one was too damned good to put with any others.

I wish I was that kid.

Oh yea,

I've started a site for the Outsider Art I find around Chicago.

Outsiderartfair.com


(I know. I know. Some of it is just really really bad art but hey, I like it.)

Well, the comments are now closed. Today alone, I had to delete 35 spam posts from various porn sites and penis enlargement sites. It was nice of the spammers to offer the help but I have a nice penis already.

It just takes up too much time to deal with it (the spam, not my penis). I'm going to try and update to another version of Movable Type and hopefully we'll get the comments back.

Thanks
Ron
