Picture blog of my daily jog



I sacrificed my daily jog for your viewing pleasure. 

I wanted to thank (and Kill) my friend the talented photographer and scientist Fundamental Jelly  for this idea!

If you click on the pics they will grow big and be pretty!!

I can’t lie, I don’ run that whole thing. It’s about 2 ½ miles straight up. So I walk the first bit then jog. Still not to bad for having quit smoking in December after 18 years.


Anyway I had this cool idea to detail my morning jog in chronological order. I take a picture of every couple hundred feet and put them all up in a post. I edited them down from over 90 pics to 42, and I was so proud of myself! My dumb ass had no idea I couldn’t fit 42 pics in a blog. I edited them down to 21. It would be 7 neat rows of 3 pics each row. Nope. Then I got it down to nine. And they were all screwed up. I had to have my wife help me. My helmet was getting itchy She got frustrated too. Then we were both trying to not throw the laptop out the window or at each other. I thought to myself, “Oh, some glass, I’ll bet that has a nice flavor!! Oh, a kitty cat, I’ll chase him!”


So after literally 3 hours of two people trying, we got this post up. I am putting all 42 pics on my Facebook if anyone wishes to actually see any of the rest.


On a positive note: I absolutely love that jog every morning. To get to spend a couple hours a day without seeing evidence of the existence of human beings is priceless! I’ve always been a water person, but the desert has it’s advantages! But when I get back home, they put me back in my cage.

  1. Thanks for the sacrifice! I’m going to jump over and check out facebook to see them all.

    By the way, I knew they put you in a cage!

    • Claire, I’m putting them on Facebook today; sorry I didn’t do it yesterday.
      Don’t make fun of my cage. It is big and nice and the outside is scary and filled with bad people. I like my cage.

      • Well it’s nice of them to let you out once in awhile. Do you have to wear a leash so you don’t run off? Or is it so you don’t bite?

  2. Is it safe to say that you’re working today for a better tomorrow?

  3. Well yea, that would be safe to say. Maybe not so much the working part tho. They told me it’s safe with my helmet!

    • Only pussies wear helmets! (as indicated by the many scars on my head)

      • I don’t know whether to make a joke about scarred pussies, heads, cocks, helmets, or condoms.
        I feel like A-Rod at the bottom of the ninth in game seven, and Clemens just threw underhanded and I’m too shocked to swing!

      • Rooster, didn’t those scars come from farmer Brown chasing you with the axe?

    • Ghost of Freud- I feel like I need to sit down. This is something that we should discuss in your office. Over time. I’m making an appointment now. This is going to be expensive.
