I love opportunities to draw people in restaurants. I was eating at a Panera Bread a few months ago while waiting for an appointment. There is a level of concentration in peoples faces as they eat that you do not see in any other situation.

August 28th is National Bow Tie Day. I thought I would post a few of my favorite Bow Tie Guys over the years.

The Vaquita, the smallest of the porpoises, can be up to five feet long. It is the rarest and the most endangered marine mammal. Discovered in 1958, there are estimated to be only 100 left. Over half of their population were destroyed in the last three years. They live only in the northern part of the Gulf of Mexico and are mostly threatened by nets used by illegal fishers.
For more information on the Vaquita you can visit worldwildlife.org

While on our family excursion across the US we made a three hour detour in Nebraska to see Carhenge. It was a wonderful stop, Quirky and fascinating at the same time. Our children loved it as well. It is located in Alliance, Nebraska.

Today's Bow Tie Guy is a little different. This evening is when entries for the 3rd Annual Lego Competition at the Quimby Gallery are due. I am entering this, The Gump 2.0. This is patterned after the Gump from L. Frank Baum's The Land of OZ with the palm leave wings. The difference is this has an elephant head, a hot air balloon, a yeti rowing, multiple jet engines, helicopter blades, and is powered by a una-kitty horn. It is a redundancy time machine that has been floating around my head for a while now.
Next week I will be getting back to my endangered species series.

I was impressed by the small size of the home and how big our church has become. It was rather humbling to be there.
