Sometimes you just have to say #$%@ it!!!

Well I had one of those days today. It started with forking out $75.00 to fill my tank and then another $300 to renew my tags for the next two years. All this by 8:30am. So what did I do about it? I turned the cell phone ringer off and drove out to Great Falls with my camera and spent a few peaceful and therapeutic hours all to myself.

I actually got there too late to take advantage of the best morning light but none the less here's a few photos.

Update... Grass image added as per Mike's request

  1. Wow! I was pissed when I had to spend 30 bucks on gas! Oh...and not to make you feel worse or anything, but my odometer said 502.4 when I pulled into the station the other day! ;^}

    Finally, where's the grasses photo? People should see that one too.

  2. Well it’s not exactly like I don't expect to pay big bucks for the truck and frankly much of the cost is passed on to others; it’s just the combination of both on such a nice day made for an excellent excuse. ;-)

    I'll add the grass photo as per your request.

  3. What about fish? Where are the fish in the picture?

    If it makes you feel better I spent $50 on gas. Then again that will last me two weeks.

  4. The fish are under the water. ;-)

    Short of trip to Frederick or Pittsburg I can usual get about 10 days. Of course I do have that huge commute to work every day. ;-)
