They Say It's Yer Birthday Top 'o' The Week Bonus

I usually head west for my birthday, stop for popcorn in Montfort and keep going. May 3rd was the first nice day in a week of cold and rain.
I got to see the place where the Mighty Mississipp meets the I Guess It's Okay Wisconsin and of course got lost looking for a bike trail I never found.
The day has been started with me dancing around like a maniac to the Beatles Yer Birthday for years, here's a taste.


On the wrong road, I thought I saw a sign that said "No Stray." I was disappointed to see it said, "No Spray" when I went through the photos

Don't mind if I do

This pier has looked like this for...ever


My Aunt Ginny and Uncle Danny called me when I roaming around here

There's a train that I first thought was quaint but then more trains kept coming, so many trains, many treetops and one of my fav things and the reason I started coming here on my birthday, rattlesnakes


Fitting this was one of my last photos when I turned 60

    1. I was fascinated by them for a while and never got a photo. They're a pretty cool animal and there are only two kinds around here, and one of them is extremely rare. I am forever hoping to get a good photo of one.

    1. There was another one that was a true crap shack that housed an equally shitty car. I should put it up.

  8. Happy b-lated !! Yeah, somehow it doesn't surprise me that you'd think it's fun to find rattlesnakes ;>) Glad you had a good day-- started out with a great song and dance and went up hill from there.

    1. Ha, it kind of did, but the older I get, the less I want anyone to see that song and dance, lol. Rattlesnakes are sweet creatures, just don't step on them and watch out for your pooch. At least WI rattlers are cool.
