I viewed this photo with annoyance. How can someone find pleasure in blowing exhaust fumes at someone else? 

Driving on I-70 in St. Louis usually involves random things in road. See this post for an example. ;)
This video was from my dashcam while driving home during rush hour last week, and shows that roll coalers aren't limited to country roads.

Alex's Visit

Alex came to visit St. Louis for a weekend. We went to the gym and went shooting.

This was my target, I took a picture to remember how I was shooting. Low and left!

Went on the Budweiser tour, then grabbed some more food and drinks at Schlafly.

Visited Forest Park.


Admired the stainless steel tree. I've always seen it at a distance, but we approached it and touched it. It's super cool, with fake little mushrooms on it.

Stopped at the zoo to see the penguins, puffins, and bears.

"Halt. Who goes there?"

Bear feet are almost as cute as baby feet.

We had some margaritas at Chili's, and booed the Cardinals.

Visited the City Museum. Loved these floor tiles.

The view isn't bad either.

We also went to the Cathedral Basilica to gape at the mosaics.

Finally had some barbecue at Salt + Smoke , which I've been wanting to try forever. The food was great, but it's quite a hike from our house.

August in Dubuque

I spent a week in Dubuque at the beginning of August. I got to see a bunch of cute kids...
