Do you know what this is?

Driver's training for the United States Postal worker. See the mailboxes and the garbage cans they have to steer around?

If your dog lives in the desert, he should be snake trained. This company teaches your dog to fear and stay away from rattlers.

Talk about being short sheeted?

Saw this while showing homes. It sure did make the room look bigger.

McKay Fieldhouse at Purdue

This is the indoor practice field in West Lafayette, Indiana. Home of the Purdue Boilermakers. I was on vacation when I snapped these photos. Nothing to do with Chandler, I just like the sports pictures.

Double jointed bike

Can you tell that both bike wheels are pointing forward. This guy has a double jointed bike. I saw him earlier with one wheel on the street and the other on the sidewalk and he was moving straight down the curb.

Ducks in my Pool

Actually not my pool. I was showing houses and we came up upon this bank owned home with a green pool and ducks. The ducks were unusual, but not the green pool

College Football

Visit the Fiesta Bowl Museum down on the Scottsdale waterfront. Last year Ohio State and Texas squared off. But, if you want to see your favorite teams helmet, it'll be there.

More Faces

Hopefully, if you didn't see faces on yesterdays wall you at least see faces on these cupcakes. They were made for a baby shower. See the pacifiers in the mouths?

A Chandler Wall

You know how people see images of Jesus in peeling paint, stains or everyday objects? I see a couple faces on this wall. What do you see?

Ladder Ball Anyone?

That's Doug and Annie getting in a game of ladder ball in Indiana. What picnic games do you play? The object is to get the golf ball ropes to hang on the posts like you see the orange ones do. The higher the post, the more the points. Annie is throwing hers to a ladder about 20 feet away.

Forest Fire

I didn't know Chandler had a palm tree farm. Until, part of it went up in flames. I took this with my Treo phone back in May.

The Arizona Republic

This sculpture is in front of PF Chang's in Scottsdale. It's called "The Doors". Beautiful as you drive by, but just as interesting on the inside. So, get out of your car and step on in.
Here's a photo with me in it of the mirrored interior. I woke up this morning to seeing this picture and a story about us Arizona photo bloggers on the cover of the Valley & State section of our Arizona Republic. And while you are inside you'll get to hear sounds like this.
I love this picture. It's three mirrors in a triangle formation. I took a picture of one mirror with the other two behind me. No photo shop or anyother darkroom magic. Just a camera and 5 seconds of my time.
