How was your weekend?


This sign is why I love Cool Cool City. There is stuff like this all over this town. We followed the road, just to see... There was only an abandoned helium plant at the end. It was very Men In Black with it's uniformly painted buildings all dilapidating in the same uniformly peeling way. There were slightly mysterious bits of machinery all about and slightly innocuous real estate signs posted on the security fence. And the US Department of Interior and the Dim Arts signs posted inside the fence were suspiciously new. Their bright blue paint clashed with the weird peach and orange color scheme of the buildings.

We were on our way to a movie and didn't have time to stop and explore. But maybe next time. (And, uh, if you're willing to help post my bail once I'm arrested for trespassing on Homeland Property, please let me know.)

A strange place indeed.

I'll chip in five dollars for your bail...after that, you are on your own!!

Yes, I'm in for five!

We need pics! We need pics! That looks cool - need a partner in crime???? You wouldn't be the first person I have bailed out of jail!

I usually don't go for these Internet fundraising schemes, but sure, count me in for five, too.

But who would be your probation officer?

Oh, dear....I'm reading SEIZE THE NIGHT by Dean Koontz.....bad, bad military/government-types running amuck. Hope they haven't infiltrated your area. I have $5 just sittin' here in case you need that bail money, but maybe you should steer clear...no telling WHAT nightmares reside on the Homeland/Bio-Research/Mungo-Military-Mayhem Project property.

Trespassing on a government facility would probably be more than I could afford on my little salary. But I would visit you in the pokey. Maybe bring you a pack of smokes or something.

I don't think you get bail when it's gumment propity you step on. I believe they send you to the special 'sperimental lab as a "hostile volunteer"

Great pics.

Great pictures! I've never been there--didn't know it was such a cool place. We'll get up that way someday.
