Found For Friday

This was recently voted the funniest religious joke of all time:
Once I saw this guy on a bridge about to jump. I said, "Don't do it!" He said, "Nobody loves me." I said, "God loves you. Do you believe in God?"
He said, "Yes." I said, "Are you a Christian or a Jew?" He said, "A Christian." I said, "Me, too! Protestant or Catholic?" He said, "Protestant." I said, "Me, too! What franchise?" He said, "Baptist." I said, "Me, too! Northern Baptist or Southern Baptist?" He said, "Northern Baptist." I said, "Me, too! Northern Conservative Baptist or Northern Liberal Baptist?
He said, "Northern Conservative Baptist." I said, "Me, too! Northern Conservative Baptist Great Lakes Region, or Northern Conservative Baptist Eastern Region?" He said, "Northern Conservative Baptist Great Lakes Region." I said, "Me, too!"
Northern Conservative†Baptist Great Lakes Region Council of 1879, or Northern Conservative Baptist Great Lakes Region Council of 1912?" He said, "Northern Conservative Baptist Great Lakes Region Council of 1912." 
I said, "Die, heretic!" And I pushed him over.
I hear Apple is working on building a high tech car.
They've hit a snag.
They're having trouble installing Windows.

Claustrophobic people are more productive thinking outside of the box.

A giraffe's coffee would be cold by the time it reached 
the bottom of its neck. 
Did you ever think about that? 
No. Because you only think about yourself.

I watched a show about Lake Meade last night.
Best dam documentary I ever saw.

I ate four cans of alphabet soup and just took the biggest vowel movement of my life.

An insulting telegram is a barbed wire.

I could never understand my trigonometry teacher because he always talked in sine language.

A waist is a terrible thing to mind.

The soundtrack for the killer whale movie was orcastrated.

Are twin brothers called sunsets?

I don't always trust stairs because they're up to something.

I am trying a strict alcohol diet.
So far I've lost four days and all sense of shame.

The punctual zombie was undead on time.

We often get what we deserve.
Why do we invest money with someone called a "broker"?

Ledges Photo Shoot ~~ Photos by Bob Kelly

Today I had a couple of hours to use creatively, so I went to the Ledges State Park, near Boone, Iowa.  I have been there many times in the last 40 years in all seasons and weather, and every time I go I find something to photograph. Today was no exception, so here are six images the last two of which were taken a mile or so north of the actual Ledges Park.  The windmill and bright yellow grain elevators were very colorful and contrasted well in the bright sun shine.  I purposely printed them with extra saturation to exaggerate the color contrast and while it is a bit artsy, it shows what I was feeling.  The last image is a giant pile containing many hundreds of large treated beams like they use on railroad bridges.  I am not sure how they will be used, but I liked their repetitive patterns.  Stay tuned…my shutter finger is not worn out yet!!
