Uncle Sam on a Bike

I totally need to own one of these gadgets for my yard. As I was cycling with Jim this holiday weekend south of Burnet Texas we passed a house sporting one of these whirlygigs in the yard. With the stiff breeze we had today, old Uncle Sam’s wheels were flying! I had to stop for a photo op.

The holiday weekend has otherwise been just a relaxing mix of puttering around the house, barbequing and hanging out with friends. Kem came over for bbq on Fri and then later it was on to the Dennings/Floyds for the birds eye view of area fireworks. Their deck affords quite a view.

All in all, I can sum up my 4th of July weekend in the inimitable words of Peter Gibbons in the movie Office Space:

Peter Gibbons: Michael, I did nothing. I did absolutely nothing, and it was everything I thought it could be.
