I'm not the picture taking kind.

It distracts from the long solitary walks in beautiful and interesting surroundings.

Plenty of impromptu railfanning too. As noted previously, in Clinton it is easy to get a good view some very active freight tracks without trespassing.

Short side trip to the Buffalo Bill museum in Le Claire.

ed will doubtless be snarky about the lack of nightlife.

The bikers were out in force because of Labor Day, but that could be any of a number of places in the Midwest.

I would totally go to the Buffalo Bill Museum. I try to go to at least at least one museum on any trip I go to, anywhere. I hit Vegas over the weekend and went to the Neon Museum (Lots of old neon signs from casinos that are just a memory these days) and a little mini-museum in a casino dedicated to Bonnie and Clyde (centered around their "death car"). Would have hit the Mob Museum but no time.

So what kind of stuff did they have at the Buffalo Bill Museum
The Luggage said nothing, but louder this time.

Buffalo Bill memorabilia, as befits his birthplace.

Also a lot of interesting stuff about Mississippi River navigation, including a small steamboat that has part of the building built around it.

Also the usual odds and ends of a small town museum, WWI uniforms, ladies dresses from the 1920's, lots of American Indian artifacts.

Including what is allegedly Iron Eyes Cody's (no relation to Buffalo Bill Cody of course) own teepee.

Note: Iron Eyes Cody was a member of my father's tribe. :BigGrin3:

So. You went on some weird-ass vacation to someplace nobody every heard of and had sex with some random men that are not even pretty and you expect us to be interested? That's a fucking question!

I stayed home on the couch. Like I fucking said.

Hey ed!

Lister's getting punchy again.

You seem to be the only one around here who knows how to calm him down.

Purely random, or did you pick that one for a reason?

Oh, so you believe in randomness, Free Will, and all that stuff? :mrgreen:

No particular reason, save that I liked the original pic & that it survived reduction to 100x100 pixels reasonably well. (Since then I learned that it's somehow related to sarmatism, so perhaps from a movie set or some (pseudo-)historical reenactment.)

This is the thread for more Jerry Lewis stuff, right?

Jerry Lewis left six sons from his first marriage out of will: report
