Can anyone identify this insect? It is some sort of a fly. There were many Dragonflies and Horseflies in the area, it almost looks to me like a cross-breed of those two. The length of the body equals the length of a full grown Dragonfly. He rode with us for about a mile down the river. I almost collected a canoe-fare from him! :)

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-09 22:37
LOL...Yes Logan is the best at making Arrows fly, Maybe this critter has high hopes of making the canoe fly? One thing for sure, this critter has Amazing VISION! Just look at the size of those eyes in comparison to his head! 8-)

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-09 23:28
Many times after viewing Logan or Daniel i feel like my eyes have popped out of my head just like this fly! Maybe One of the boys is nearby, or maybe its just me, as he never stopped looking at me? He sure seemed happy to see :)

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-10 03:47
you will have to send the fly the web address for the Daniel album so he can check it out! I hope the spider isn't home! :D

azovazov 🇷🇺 2011-09-10 19:30
you both sound like two young-age spies talking about a secret partisan operation...

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-10 20:00
wow! azov, your perspective is impressive! and spies do plant bugs to listen in on private conversations! and use code names much also! welcome back! :)

azovazov 🇷🇺 2011-09-11 19:42
i'd rather stay aside - your entire discussion sounds double dutch to me! :-(

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-11 23:36
"Hop" right in! Two jumping inside the ropes of play is far more entertaining than a solo rope with only one jumper!

azovazov 🇷🇺 2011-09-12 18:55

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-12 21:36
you are the "one" inside of the fives! very curious and meaningful! Azov and i have you surrounded! no escape now! and while i was writing the 5000th vision, the posting of the 5000th comment was taking place! my vision did come true, it just had a different interpretation, understand?

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-13 06:27
O is a Mr E? (mystery) or is it someone whose real name begins with an O? hm-m-m. either way, or both ways, you are with friends.

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-13 18:54
I'm waiting, waiting, just waiting, waiting inside the fives, O-oh, O-oh,... 5015... 5=S?... O=Mr.E?...correct azov? ... "5015th is the new 5000th!"....."3 jumpers are much better for going on a river vacation"...azov, remember the river? the flow, the wave? remember??? :)))))))))))))))))))

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-22 04:32
yes, Jagar always looks so splashingly nice! Wave at the camera! Say ice cream! uh oh, i forgot about crazy aryan! here, let me throw you my in-fat-able hispania doll!

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-10-27 01:38
Best as i can guess, this is some sort of "ROBBER FLY",

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-10-27 22:22
"Promachus hinei" is the type of "robber fly" this is a female, of course, she was just checking me out! LOL

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-11-13 20:23
yes, she was only about an arms length away, and i simply zoomed in on her. I think she smiled here! :)

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-08 21:46
A map of the river (dark blue). We camped at round spring, a central location for canoe trips from different starting points. The Jack's Fork River (no relation to me) meets the current river at two rivers. The Jack's fork river is warmer with more snakes, and less springs to feed the river.

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-10 18:17
Page 4 picture 8 looks to be a candidate for a rock snake? the large rock formation looks like a snake head with 2 fangs and a snake eye visible...what do you think? and "What about Bob?" i hope tomorrow 9-11-11 isnt an explosive time for me like you say in mbay bobay (snake latin)! :D

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-13 06:37
Page 4 picture 9 looks to be the real candidate for the giant rock snake. My higher math skills failed me above, i forgot to carry the one! its a heavy burden!

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-08 21:47
Stream leading away from Pulltite spring. (not canoe-able or swim-able)

azovazov 🇷🇺 2011-09-10 19:33
..but photo-takingable!

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-10 20:03
oh yes! like the sign says...Take only photos, leave only footprints!

azovazov 🇷🇺 2011-09-11 19:44
a very wise sign!

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-11 23:25
they should post a few signs on the river on fallen trees like these that read "DUCK"...but then some people would be looking around for the bird! :)

azovazov 🇷🇺 2011-09-12 18:53
yes. i wondered why they hadn't done it.

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-13 06:21
Most signs are prohibited here. Its a National Forest Preserve, and they try to preserve the beauty. Like the song says..."signs signs, everywhere the signs, blocking out the scenery, polluting my mind, do this don't do that can't you read the signs?"

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-08 21:48
Path leading to Pulltite spring. About a half mile walk from the river to the spring.

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-08 21:49
Lush green foliage near Pulltite spring.

azovazov 🇷🇺 2011-09-10 19:34
green... i like green - it's the colour of summer... i'm crazy about summer!

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-10 20:30
I Like Green, I Like Blue, A little bit of me, a whole lot of you! :)

azovazov 🇷🇺 2011-09-11 19:45
are you gonna kill me with your riddles? ;-)

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-11 23:21
my wish is to kill the vines that entangle peoples minds, and to help them be free to imagine and think clearly on their own. :D

azovazov 🇷🇺 2011-09-12 18:52
i'm afraid some vines should be left. to be sure...

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-13 06:15
Maybe like Tarzan, a few loose vines would help one to swing from one thought to another?

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-08 21:50
A cave across the stream (unaccessable by man) a protected area for natural wildlife.

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-08 21:51
small caves for small animals, bats...too small for humans

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-08 21:52
a beautiful moss covered stump looking like a toilet which someone left the seat up! :)

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-15 15:16
Nature does have a sense of humor! I wish more people could see that! Many only see the anger and destruction from storms.

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-21 14:21
well i did drop a log. but i am sure the automatic flush feature on this "state of the ART" facility was working properly.

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-08 21:54
No swimming, fishing or wading allowed in the delicate spring ecosystem.

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-10 00:11
i actually thought of editing this picture and putting it in my comedy album for real! Only i don't have a picture of us together, Then both of us could wear red banners as we posed for this sign!

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-10 01:22
yes, that IS a "disturbing" picture! Posted here, it would cause a major disruption in the wildlife for sure! Just think of the population explosion it would cause, and all the plants would grow towards the sign to have a closer look! Then word would spread, and every living creature on the planet would vacation here or live here, then all the weight would be on one part of the planet, causing it to fall out of orbit...hmmm i need to re-think this!

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-10 03:23
we may require the help of an asteroid belt to keep our planet from being pantsed!

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-11-03 12:16
Yes, it seems your 3rd edition aryanhunter3 free pizza coupon has expired, leaving me in a cheesy mess and talking nonsense to myself again! maybe i should engrave your words on the pizza box top so they won't get lost again?

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-08 21:55
Pulltite spring! Absolute and Natural Beauty!

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-11-13 20:27
southeast Missouri. South of Salem. North of Eminence. On the current river just south of the Pulltite campground.

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-11-15 02:37
The whole area is full of beauty. We stayed at round spring campground because our friend has a trailer and requires electricity.

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-08 21:56
Another view of Pulltite Spring- The Garden of Eden, Paradise found here!

azovazov 🇷🇺 2011-09-10 19:37
this green is very tranquillizing...

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-10 20:33
imagine the sounds of nature along with the visual image. the stream flowing over a few rocks, a few birds, a gentle breeze in the leaves of the trees, yes, total tranquility and peace on earth!

azovazov 🇷🇺 2011-09-11 19:46
(and noisy insects buzzing in your ear...)

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-11 23:16
yes! (just like one of my best friends here at the site) ahem!

azovazov 🇷🇺 2011-09-12 18:51
he's gonna punish you for this kidding! ;-D

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-12 21:51
being on the other side of the earth has its advantages! :)

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-08 21:58
Crystal Clear, Very Drinkable Natural Springwater! I don't know the name of the wildflower, but they were everywhere around here.

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-08 22:00
Pulltite Spring...The deep blue is very deep! The flow is strong! all the stream pics in this section are from the flow originating here.

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-10 00:05
lol, lol, aryan wanna cracker? wanna cracker? if you jump in this water you wont have to pretend to stutter. your shivvvering will naturally repeat your words. and no snakes here, i think they all shriveled up in the cold water! its almost like the north atlantic in winter time. i can almost see an iceburg here....go ahead, jump in, i could use a great laugh today! :)

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-10 01:28
oh i would definitely jump in to save you or any other good friend that required assistance! But you would have to sing "staying alive" by the Bee Gees first, i know the high voice would be no problem! Then we could snuggle and roast marshmallows by a fire and get warmed up!

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-13 06:42
sounds like i got you all "wound" up. i find it interesting how some animals mating calls sound just like that same animals cry of pain. maybe its instinctively related?

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-20 16:47
maybe i should have used the term groaning in pain? screaming wasn't exactly what i had in mind, however, consider the little monkey...

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-08 22:01
Pulltite Stream...all the water here is flowing from the spring!

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-08 22:02
Taller picture of Pulltite stream

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-08 22:02
another angle of Pulltite Spring.

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-08 22:03
an abandoned cabin within shouting distance of Pulltite spring...absolute seclusion and beauty!

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-08 22:05
another shot of the log cabin...entrance is okay...restoration should begin soon....

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-08 22:06
its a one room log cabin with the fireplace centrally located. Although there is much graffiti, other damage is minimal.

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2012-03-07 15:21
lol, i am interpreting this as a comic relief comment. Most of the graffitti here was not bad words. Probably 95% was love notes...Taylor loves Jeff... or John was here sort of thing. Yes, i did read many of them.

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-08 22:08
the Pulltite stream separates, it flows from the left to the right in 2 separate streams.

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2012-03-07 15:22
yes, it helps define the views.

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-08 22:10
Many interesting Moss,and Fungus formations are found here. Notice the rate of flow of the stream, all from Pulltite spring! it roars!

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-08 22:11
There is a Fungus among us! Such beautiful color and interesting formations!

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-08 22:13
a close up of the fungus...most people just walk by this stuff....i find it amazing!

azovazov 🇷🇺 2011-09-10 19:42
as tender as orchid petals

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-10 20:36
yes, i did not touch it, there is an invisible "do not touch" sign on beautiful things of nature such as this.

azovazov 🇷🇺 2011-09-11 19:47
ultra vision again...

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-11 23:13
imagine this being coral in the sea (white) with fish swimming under and around it (brown areas with the black dots being their eyes) :)))

azovazov 🇷🇺 2011-09-12 18:49
...and there is a kind of ocean fish looking pretty much like this fungus!

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-12 21:49
another photo for the "first glance" album?

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-13 18:25
Pure nature is so beautiful. We all should take the time to, pause, look, wonder, and enjoy.

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-14 08:57
The computer is a wonderful tool used properly. it has brought many people together to be good friends with common interests, who otherwise would have never known each other. Other than zoom or crop, on a couple of these pics, like the stealth bomber, they are unedited, natural, original pics.

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-20 16:42
yes, aryan, it is wonderful to be natural in nature. Do the animals or plants wear clothes? Granted the raccoon looks like he is wearing a mask, and i did have a tree bark at was a dogwood! :)

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-08 22:14
Yellow vines growing among the greenery. some is more orange. I love the color contrast. Natural Beauty!

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-08 22:18
This is where Pulltite Stream meets the Current River! You can walk in the water here...if you dare! The spring water is icy cold! The Current River runs left to right ahead behind that bush on the top left.

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-08 22:20
beginning of the path leading to Pulltite Spring.

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-08 22:24
SNAKE?.... DID YOU SAY SNAKE?.... Yes we saw many dozens of snakes just like this one! They were all in rootwads or dead tree branches. we saw none swimming in the water, or none crawling on the ground. (snake is in the top right corner) he is wrapped around that first branch down from the top right corner, from right to left.

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-09 23:59
a funny part of the trip was when i steered the canoe towards a large rootwad of a fallen tree to see some large turtles, and my canoe-mate in front started screaming because he saw 3 large snakes bigger than this one in the rootwad that we here heading straight for! it was like he suddendly drank four red bulls all at once! oh, yes, being the master oarsman that i am, ahem, , i avoided the rootwad and the snakes by at least six inches! :D

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-10 01:34
after seeing snakes on a river all day, a cute rubber snake by the door of the dark tent is always entertaining! Nature listens as new and previously unheard noises echo through the hills!

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-10 03:05
i did have a red and yellow rubber snake that i put in the river...nobody was scared of that one, they all wanted to play with it. I used one of more appropriate color to put by the tent, as similar to the real ones we saw all day as possible! it was a real scream! Ha! :)

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-13 06:45
there are red markers you could use to color the snake...

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-20 16:35
my teacher always used red markers to grade her students assignments! Hey teacher! :)

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-08 22:26
Fire-Hydrant Spring! that right cave is more round, and water pours out of it like a fire hydrant.

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-08 22:28
Just one of a million mirror reflection pics taken as we paddled down the river!

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-08 22:29
wild horses are common in this area, often seen crossing the river!

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-14 10:47
yes, the one on the right is the cutest! he is a true aryan steed! Imagine Daniel riding him!

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-08 22:31
Yes, this picture is upside down....i did it for effect reasons! :)

azovazov 🇷🇺 2011-09-10 19:46
as if the pic taker is under water...

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-10 20:44
inspired by your "upside down" album...yes the effect is interesting and difficult to describe.

azovazov 🇷🇺 2011-09-11 19:48
i wonder what people's first glance reaction would be...

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-11 22:54
maybe we should make a "first glance" album with pics like this and ask people to comment about whar their initial reaction was?

azovazov 🇷🇺 2011-09-12 18:26
well, that's a nice idea! "give a chance to your first glance!" it's gonna take some time to take suitable photos!

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-12 21:47
catchy phrase! maybe we already have the photos? Just need to invert them and see what we have!

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-14 02:57
and your next reaction was..?.."oh man, now i have to stand on my head to view this picture?" :D

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-20 16:33
don't you mean to say you turned it downside up, making it no longer a laptop, but a butt-er-bottom?

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-08 22:32
the only raindrops we saw while on the river, and it was very brief and light, less than five minutes! yes that is river fog to the right!

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-08 22:34
The deep blue water on the far side is about four feet deep and rages very fast. I am fairly strong, and i could barely keep my footing! we floated or raced down this stretch!

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-08 22:36
Many rope swings were along the river. This is just one of dozens!

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-08 22:38
its a steep drop! from where he is standing to where the rope is, its over eight feet deep!

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-09 23:53
Ha! no i am shooting the picture! a view to a kill? its ironic that it takes two of them to handle a stick to get it into that hole!

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-08 22:39
climb the tree, grab the rope, swing out, release, SPLASH! repeat! :D

azovazov 🇷🇺 2011-09-10 19:48
is it deep enough there to make that "splash"?

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-10 20:49
oh yes! The river drops off quickly to about 3 meters i would guess. its well over his head.

azovazov 🇷🇺 2011-09-11 19:49
ok. now i'm all right about his head.

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-11 22:50
oh, then you would definitely faint if i had a pic of the kids jumping off a high cliff into the river. that part is extra deep, probably 6 to 8 meters deep, the cliff, maybe 15 meters high

azovazov 🇷🇺 2011-09-12 18:23
oh, i'd then definately faint even at the thought of it! you know i can't go to funeral services - i sob like a crazy one at the thought of those who've lost their dearest :-(

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-12 21:42
Then you will be happy to hear that no one ever died from jumping there! Funerals are difficult for me also! I go. I cry. people see me cry, they know i can anyone not cry at a funeral?

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-08 22:41
Millions of turtles here in this river... one spot we counted 12 in a row on a large log. Saw another turtle underwater with his shell the size of a dinner plate!

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-13 18:20
Yes there are a few snapping turtles here. (The others had zippers) lol, Most turtles jumped into the water as we approached and they totally diappeared. Never really tried to pursue them.

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-14 08:52
agreed! they jumped off the logs very rapidly! Maybe on dry land they might be slower, but in the water they are quite fast and great swimmers!

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-15 14:28
Had to check some numbers just for fun. Average speed in water for a turtle is 10-12mph, with the fastest being 20mph. On land, the turtle is the slowest of the reptiles moving at 3-4 mph maximum.(that was much faster than i thought) I might have guessed 1 mph. A snail travels approximately .002 mph.

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-20 16:30
a slug wins every time! especially when its fired from a gun! and i have been to Seattle, the official state animal is the slug, because it rains so much, and slugs are crawling everywhere! Do Seahawks eat slugs, worms??? Remember, you are what you eat!

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-11-13 20:29
lol, just trying to keep it interesting! :)

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-12-17 05:15
another missing aryanhunter comment in between my 2. he commented and asked what is faster? a snail or a slug. aryanhunter made a reference to seattle, also, i don't remember exactly what he said.

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-08 22:43
another cave by the river. there are enumerable caves in this area. The circle carved in the rock is naturally occuring.

azovazov 🇷🇺 2011-09-10 19:52
looks like a big but damaged (the left eye hole) scull - just look more attentively!

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-10 20:54
hmmm..yes, and it looks like a piece has broken off the rock of the left eye hole. there is a white spot where the lower eye socket could have curved up and joined at....very interesting! i didn't notice that before, thanks!

azovazov 🇷🇺 2011-09-11 19:51
...and the red above that eye looks like dried out blood... )))

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-11 22:40
it seems i may need to rename this album "Vacation Imagination Stimulation Interaction Of Nature (V.I.S.I.O.N.)...what do you think?

azovazov 🇷🇺 2011-09-12 18:19
it's per-r-r-r-fect!!!!

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-12 21:18
are you rolling your tongue like a river with those r-r-r'S? :)....change is in progress with this official approval! Old Album Name was "River Vacation Pics"....for future reference.

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-08 22:46
the largest of the cave openings is behind me. guessing its a half mile in to the back of the cave where there is a spring.

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-12-17 05:10
surprisingly, in this area, most do follow the rules. we go often, and rarely see trash or graffiti, except in that house. the many caves are more respected. I confess i did leave something behind.....footprints!

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-12-17 03:54
this is a cave entrance in the side of a hill. yes it appears as if it could be turned because of the plant growth, but this is the correct view. an optical illusion?

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-12-17 18:08
LOL, ok you caught me on this one! Congratulations! No one else payed that much attention i guess! The next picture is the same cave but looking out from inside. The biggest telltale signs are the 2 stairstep rocks on the right side of this picture, and on the bottom of the next. Hope you enjoyed the fun!

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-12-18 04:16
sure, why not? many would not figure it out unless you tell them. I did turn some other reflective pictures over in this album for fun, but they are easily noticeable.

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-12-18 04:22
other turned pics are on page 3, 5 pic 7 pics10,11,12...also see azovazovs album upside down!

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-12-18 22:18
thats when a flip screen button is nice.

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-12-21 13:45
rotates the screen right or left or upside down.

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-12-22 00:17
chocolate or vanilla? before i scream or after?

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-12-28 02:08
okaaaay...i gave my flip screen button a chocolate shake with extra chocolate, now how do i make an apple turnover?

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-12-30 02:46
its much easier to teach if your dogs name is apple! :)

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-12-30 05:28
aw shucks, colonel. Guess we will have to make peace and carrots!

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-08 22:48
looking out across the river from just inside the cave. The guy with the orange paddles is on the other side of the river...

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-08 22:50
inside the cave, there are silver sparklies on the ceiling, a small stream flows from the spring at the end of the cave. Many nice rock formations here.

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-08 22:51
inside the cave, many small passageways too small to get into.

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-13 06:31
oh yes, i forgot, i only have four fingers on one hand, lol, it is the next picture, picture 9

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-08 22:54
I am visioning some sort of Dinosaur head with big fangs, and a big tongue hanging out of his mouth....his cat-like eye is over the middle fang....what do you see?

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-10 18:12
Maybe this is the legendary rock snake?

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-13 06:33
He does look scared though, doesn't he? Petrified! :D

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-08 22:56
Enter the dragon?

two bridges near Round is for cars, the one behind is for people to walk across.

One of the four campsites we occupied, all close together. Just to the right is another one, and to the left another, and behind me is the Trailer. There is a huge spider web from the top of my truck to a tree above it, you can barely see it here, but its main part is on that biggest tree where many of the branches are...see next picture for close-up!

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-08 23:06
although i had no internet connection here, i still had a "web" address. This gnarly web was attatched to my truck! it was huge! it may have been made by the hand-sized wolf spider i saw in the restroom! ahhh nature! such beauty, and danger!

azovazov 🇷🇺 2011-09-10 19:55
did seeing that wolf spider help you finish the things in the restroom quicker a bit? ;-D

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-10 20:58
oh yes! and it almost caused me to start things in the restroom sooner than i had liked to... RORFL...(Rolling On Restroom Floor Laughing)! :D

azovazov 🇷🇺 2011-09-11 20:02
wow! you can make a fortune using this "remedy" for healing constipation!!!

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-11 22:30
nice picture in my mind! now what would we call it? Eight legged instant river?

azovazov 🇷🇺 2011-09-12 18:17
well, commercial trade mark names should be well thought of!

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-12 21:10
It is very curious that this picture could be symbolic for friends meeting on the net?

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-13 06:49
it is very curious that this picture could be symbolic for friends meeting on the WEB! you caught me spiderman!

azovazov 🇷🇺 2011-09-14 23:02
can't write comments on other pages. don't know why...

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-15 00:42
There is a "tangle" in the "web site" :),,,see above!...your comments still post, and are received, its just that an error message is posted after each one. Click on another picture, then go back and you will see the comment you posted.

azovazov 🇷🇺 2011-09-15 19:47
okay, i'll try...

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-16 00:39
ah, the spider has returned and fixed the web site. now the web site is able to catch the flying comments more easily!

azovazov 🇷🇺 2011-09-16 20:01
well, 'thinnie' spider - a drastic decider

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-17 05:46
Deciding whether to eat the insects immediately, or to watch them squirm in the web for awhile as entertainment.

azovazov 🇷🇺 2011-09-17 22:08
a sadistic pleasure...

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-18 01:00
almost like an intelligent person watching a less gifted person trying to figure out a simple maneuver or work a simple math problem!

azovazov 🇷🇺 2011-09-18 23:15
hm-m-m-m... the result for the watched one is drama-a-atically different!

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-22 04:47
if successful, then there is much satisfaction. failure could result in embarrassment! a new solution or different correct result from the one anticipated, could perplex the watcher!

azovazov 🇷🇺 2011-09-22 21:43
i'm afraid spiders don't have brains enough for such an exquisite thought!

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-23 01:01
have you read "charlottes web?" smart pig, but they forgot about the spider!

azovazov 🇷🇺 2011-09-23 21:37
i remember the cartoon's promotion on billboards, but never went to watch it...

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-23 22:48
oh its a very popular short childrens book here. i remember reading it when i was very young. it has been made into many cartoons and several movies, or parts of movies.

azovazov 🇷🇺 2011-09-24 22:26
saying honestly i didn't go to movies much for the last 12 months. i think i'll catch up with it during the next 12 ones!

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-25 00:12
yes, i haven't watched many this season. Winter is my movie time, as its too cold for swimming and canoeing and other activities outside. I may have seen 3 or 4 movies since February. I go to the matinee shows as its half price. Last show i saw was Cowboys and Aliens.

azovazov 🇷🇺 2011-09-25 21:50
did you have a nice laugh?

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-26 01:53
yes it was an original movie with many comedy scenes. the adventure and sci-fiction and western themes were included as well. was a sort of "buffet" of a movie.

azovazov 🇷🇺 2011-09-26 20:12 mean a "medley style" ?

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-27 17:07
yes, good! potpourri is another term. also variety of themes.

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-08 23:08
our canoe is under the rock overhang here...pure beauty as the ferns grow upside down toward the water as the suns light is reflected upwards! Deep, Blue water here!

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-13 19:00
isn't this exactly what we should be in this upside down dark world?

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-14 08:19
Life is no accident. The way many people try to explain life is like a fairy tale! People need reality. I believe that many people around the world would love to know the truth, shown in a real way, like this photograph, it can speak in a way to a "deaf" world where they will hear and understand the message, because it is so very real, and understandable! are plants smarter than people? can they teach us all something?

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-15 14:02
"IS"- a state of being, alive, now...important word! I also see a pre-written destiny. I see life as a journey through a complex maze. We have free will to choose wich path of many to take through the maze. I believe there are a few correct paths we can choose for our life, which will make our life flow smoothly and beautifully like a gentle stream. There are just as many wrong turns we can make, where the stream becomes a raging river full of dangerous rocks and snakes and other challenging and difficult obstacles. There are forks in the dangerous river that lead back to the gentle stream. Like plants, some people have chosen to follow the light and thus have an inner guidance to help lead them along the correct path. Fantasy is like parking the canoe alongside the stream, and walking up the path to a most beautiful relaxing enjoyable place. Its refreshing, can be a place for nourishment for the soul, and warms a special place deep inside. To stay there would hinder the overall journey. To not go there would make the journey less enjoyable. A plants intelligence is their natural one...they grow in the light of the sun, and need proper watering of their roots (soul) to be beautiful. The same symbolism can be used for people and their understanding of this.

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-08 23:10
our lunch spot...a warm creek on the right flows into the cool river here. The dark bluegreen water is very deep.

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-08 23:11
another view of our lunch spot.

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-08 23:13
a shallow bathwater warm water creek flows into the much cooler curent river here at our lunch spot (everyone is playing in the warm water) :)

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-08 23:16
the water is waist deep here, but still crystal clear!

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-09 23:49
Ah, but you clearly Left out one important fact: what do you do with the left leg while the right prize is being awarded?

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-10 01:40
i usually detatch my left leg and leave it somewhere me of that movie "a christmas story" with the leg lamp? i wonder if there is a market for Ramzie or Logan leg lamps? Maybe i should check the patent office soon?

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-10 03:18
its all alien to me...i remove one leg "I lien" to the left, remove the other, "I lien to the left", right?

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-13 16:42
You have no idea how much i need "Ol' leg". Without him i wouldn't be "russian" anywhere! /\

it would be nice if dead accounts comments at least were changed to anonymous comments when they died, then i wouldn't look like a stark raving mad lunatic talking to myself! LOL :))

then again, a bubble bath has its advantages.

Rocky bottom, shallow water, one foot deep?

oh! i need these little rocks for my plants!

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-10 21:01
Carol said the exact same thing! Pure river rock! it is quite expensive to purchase at the store!

azovazov 🇷🇺 2011-09-11 20:03
that's why i said it! :-(

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-11 22:19
you know i would send you some if i were rich! Just imagine the shipping costs to send it to the other side of the earth!

azovazov 🇷🇺 2011-09-12 18:15
oh, jack! i didn't mean to have this desire of mine fulfilled! it was rhetoric!

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-12 18:49
Oh but its fun and nice to think of such things, right? even rhetorically! and Congratulations! Your comment above won the "5000th comment" award! Thanks for all your support, friendship, and incredible comments! :D

azovazov 🇷🇺 2011-09-14 20:45
yes, nice and funny thoughts cost nothing, that's right... and WOW! what an award! it's worthier than oscar! woo-hoo!

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-15 15:08
as i recall, you had the 1000th comment award also! You may need to build a larger trophy case! I am guessing there to be about 1500 rocks here. imagine a picture about three times this size, with each rock being a comment. Each rock is part of the foundation of the river of this life that we have traveled down together,

azovazov 🇷🇺 2011-09-15 20:12
...funny thing - i have got access to a 65-channel cable television, but i have no tv-set... our life is full of such unused possibilities... like those little river rocks - they lie there (like they've been lying centuries before), and nobody would have seen them unless you took picture of them during that canoe trip...

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-15 23:35
funny and yet thought provoking...i have cable and a tv-set, yet i rarely look at it. There is Love and Friendship all around, just waiting to be explored, all people need to do, like the tv, is turn it on, and find the right channel (person) to see it and experience it.

azovazov 🇷🇺 2011-09-16 19:34
you forgot about adjusting process!

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-17 06:16
like fine tuning a radio to a weaker station, to eliminate static?

azovazov 🇷🇺 2011-09-17 22:18
that's it!

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-18 00:21
I think cats have their own sort of tuner, just open a can of food, and they are totally in "tuna" with you! :)

azovazov 🇷🇺 2011-09-18 23:26
yeah! they have another wave - frequency modulation - that can't be caught by a human!

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-20 16:52
i do have an A.M. and F.M. radio....maybe that will work?

azovazov 🇷🇺 2011-09-20 20:22
o.kay. no harm in trying

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-21 06:14
its almost as if cats have e.s.p., its like they can read my thoughts. if i want to sit in a chair, there they are!

azovazov 🇷🇺 2011-09-21 21:51
and Marquis does read my thoughts but he interprets them the other way round: he does what i think he mustn't!

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-22 02:34
exactly right! i have been experimenting with this cat sense wave stuff. its an opposite thing. i must think exactly opposite of what i want the cat to do to make the cat do what i want.

azovazov 🇷🇺 2011-09-22 21:09
wow! we've discovered that "wave" not long ago, and cats've been using it for ages!

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-23 01:13
Remember the Egyptian pharoahs? they always had a cat by their side controlling them! and witches always have black cats. they knew about the cat wave and harnessed its power! abra-cat-abra! they disguised it with a "d" instead of the real letter "t"....

azovazov 🇷🇺 2011-09-23 21:43
wowowow! you'll get a nobel prize for writing your investigation (=research) work on the topic!!!

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-23 22:38
i suppose now you must rename your avatar to azov-cat-azov? but we may need to disguise that and say azovcadazov? :) maybe we should name the investigation prize after a Vision problem ? "Cat-ar-act?"

azovazov 🇷🇺 2011-09-24 22:21
your word means a kind of eye disease which is not so positive... what about "cat-har-sis"?

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-25 00:23

just another lil cave much beauty all around!

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-14 10:39
two years ago, there was a severe thunderstorm on the river which rolled quickly upon us! not this cave, but one was available to hide in. Torrential rains, hail, and lots of lightning! just a bit scary....

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-08 23:22
its a bird! just one of thousands we saw.....maybe millions....i lost count....

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-13 16:48
Must be pidgeons! i didn't see a single one of those fowl and nasty birds here! I think the owls and eagles ate them all for lunch! Have you thought of investing in an umbrella?

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-11-13 20:34
yes, a blue heron. there are 2 missing comments from a deleted account above.

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-08 23:23
WHOAH!!! its ANOTHER Cave! LOL...i started feeling like a caveman on this trip! :D

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-08 23:25
an eerie cave entrance for sure! Shall we go inside? i wonder if anything lives in those two little caves to the left?

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-08 23:27
some red rock formations...dams, which form little lake like areas...loved the archways in this cave...natural beauties!

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-08 23:28
the tonsils of the dragon, or very large taste buds, the better to taste you with! :)

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-08 23:30
not ANOTHER cave....LOL... someone should really take a picture of this! and all these people! someone should charge admission!

azovazov 🇷🇺 2011-09-10 20:03
i wonder if they don't get cold - they should be warmth-loving creatures!

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-10 21:09
they like warmth, but not excessive heat! I know they hibernate in the winter.

azovazov 🇷🇺 2011-09-11 20:04
i wish i could do the same!

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-11 22:13
too much of any one season causes me to wish for hibernation. i am happy to live in a place with reasonably equal four seasons. i think i could handle a little longer Autumn, or Fall, though...:)

azovazov 🇷🇺 2011-09-12 18:12
but the start of your fall isn't equal to its end, right?

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-12 21:07
True! only winter and summer are equal!

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-08 23:36
Ha! Ha! Ha! A TREE-DOG! woof! sit fido sit! my feeble attempt at a sand casle to the right. i did find an axe or tomahawk stone here! It was grooved to fit a stick, and was like a hammer on one side and pointed on another! There were native indians living in this area at one time. The girls thought there still were indians here, because when they went back into their woods to do their business, they took their TeePee...T.P. (toilet paper) :D

azovazov 🇷🇺 2011-09-10 20:05
funny tree. it looks like a praying critter to me...

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-10 21:38
Maybe this was some sort of holy indian ground? i did sense something guiding me here. The sand castle i built looks like a teepee,with a circle moat for protection around it, and the tomahawk stone was cool also that i found. it does now look like a man with a flat top hat, either bowing to a king or praying to a god, doesn't it? and the greenery on both ends of him is peculiar also. i am going to upload the tomahawk stone and overhead view of this sand castle pic next to this pic! and i found the stick with the tomahawk stone in perfect position, it was over by the man, i moved it.

azovazov 🇷🇺 2011-09-11 20:08
a nice landscape for a movie scene

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-11 21:59
it would definitely work for the old tv series "Lost"...or the Movie "Castaway" with tom hanks.

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-11-13 20:44
oh no,... cable tv runs many old movies and shows. Its like a time machine for the television age! I like the old MacGyver series! So many times i think...if only he had a cell phone! LOL :)

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-11-15 02:36
i have only seen a re-run on tv once. I just checked the cable listings, its not there this week.

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-10 21:50
okay, here is the tomahawk rock with the stick on it, the teepee sand castle i made, and srtangely enough, it looks like a human leg and foot up there to the left by the greenery....

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-08 23:37

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-14 08:31
Thanks very much for posting the incredibly nice comment! Natural beauty is all around us! all i do is point a simple camera at it and push a button...simple! and only a couple zoom and crop functions were used in this album, on the bug, and the plane, and the falcon. the rest is unedited, natural beauty on which there is no way to improve upon!

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-08 23:39
many snags in the water, but they are beautiful also, and you can see whats down there and avoid it, unlike so many other rivers!

my thumb hill on the palm says i'm very imaginative. i feel i really am...

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-11 21:38
the proof is in your perception! you interpret the visions and express and expound with clarity what your mind sees.

azovazov 🇷🇺 2011-09-12 18:09
i can't sing music like many people can. i was given another gift - see hidden lines and images, sense unspoken feelings...

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-12 19:53
you understand your gifts and talents, and are developing them for good purposes!

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-08 23:58
Dang! i see people and faces in those rock formations! especially in the center one and the red one just to the right where it looks like kids are standing and climbing on the walls....anyone else see this???

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-09 00:03
and if you just look at the thumbnail pic above, the whole center rock looks like a face! a little distorted, but i see two eyes, a nose, mouth, ear, hair, kinda spooky! :)

to be blind and miss the beauty of the earth would be a terrible thing...I am very happy and thankful for my vision!

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-13 17:53
not nonsense, perfect sense! I get the scents of the drift! Follow the inner sense and it will lead you into the light. If you remain in the darkness, you might as well be blind. What good is Vision without The Light? What good is hearing, without a sound? and smell, without popcorn? Taste the Flavour of Friendship, and swallow your pride.

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-14 08:48
thanks so much! i will disagree with you about not being able to say it better yourself, though. I have read many of your comments and know you have great expressive ability and if you tried, you could have duplicated this effort or even surpassed it. :)

While traveling in minnesota, i almost hit a moose! lol, sorry, the humor always gets the better of me....i think many at this site are here mainly for their bodies pleasure and stimulation. I enjoy stimulating the mind and the body. When that happens, its more satisfying and pleasureable for everyone. I think you are tuned in on a very similar channel.

it would look like me having more work to do! LOL! ok i will turn it both ways, just for your majesty! it really looks like it may be something to look at! you can turn your head, but i think the impression won't be as complete unless properly turned! :)

Lewis Carroll's Alice in wonderland (or through the looking glass)?

azovazov 🇷🇺 2011-09-15 20:04
do you want me to name some tricks that alice had to make or live through in the book?

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-16 00:15
yes please, as in reference or comparison to the upside down picture, or explain how it reminds you of the book? :)

azovazov 🇷🇺 2011-09-16 19:40
you know one of the mirror tricks: you have to move backward in order to move closer to an object if you see it (the object) in the mirror

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-17 06:09
true genius! as you move backwards, the size of the object you are looking at in the mirror becomes larger in the mirror!

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-10 22:21
this is real spooky azov...i see one big head with one big face with at least seven different other faces contained within this head....why am i sensing you want me to put this into paint or photoshop and highlight the different faces i see? a vision many different faces can you find here?

azovazov 🇷🇺 2011-09-12 18:04
i can see two. but it's afternoon, and my imagination starts working by night! besides i see a kind of corridor (up and down) - from one world to another... which of them is more real?..

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-12 19:25
a corridor? like a cave where the eyes are, above the big nose? above that white birch tree that forms a white line? I also see a green volcano on the bottom spewing forth green life both into the water and the if it were a picture of mother nature or of the initial Creation! i am so happy you asked to turn this picture! this is fascinating! :)

azovazov 🇷🇺 2011-09-14 22:59
can't write comments on some previous pages

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-11-13 20:47
Had to look that up....yes it could be viewed that way!

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-10 22:25
even spookier i!

azovazov 🇷🇺 2011-09-12 18:06
a kind of dendroid!

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-12 20:01
yes. i will need to study this closer.i see much here but cannot fully explain at this time. simply fascinating!

azovazov 🇷🇺 2011-09-17 22:16
have you seen picasso's paintings?

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-18 00:29
only a couple. i remember thinking how horrible it was. i had supposed he had used many drugs or was very drunk when he painted, and thought how on earth could anyone like this stuff?

azovazov 🇷🇺 2011-09-18 23:22
have you seen his "some moments before waking up"?

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-20 16:58
not familiar with that one.

azovazov 🇷🇺 2011-09-20 20:35
i'm afraid i've mixed some ideas. i'll write what i had in mind when i find what i wanted to!

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-21 11:47
its like mixing ingredients for a cake, and waiting for it to bake?

azovazov 🇷🇺 2011-09-21 21:53
hm-m-m, the thing is you mix the wanted ingredients when making a cake... entering and interfering thoughts never ask if they are wanted.

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-22 02:29
sometimes too many thoughts are just as difficult as no thoughts at all. and dreams? what do they mean? where do they come from? i dream things i could never reproduce or describe or even remotely explain.

azovazov 🇷🇺 2011-09-22 21:02
i can explain 95% of my dreams. i can even "order" dreams! they are fulfilled (quite often)but in a changed way mostly. yesterday (this night?) i had to get through a row of heavy transport (like bulldozers, etc). the vehicles were moving slowly on a road and i had to be very careful not to be run over (or smashed)trying to cross the road...

azovazov 🇷🇺 2011-09-22 21:07
Oh! I've recalled the artist's name and then found the name of the painting! here it is: Dream Caused by the Flight of a Bee Around a Pomegranate a Second Before Awakening

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-23 01:28
my dreams are random. i can order a pizza! many times my dreams involve nothing relative to this world. there is nothing here i can compare them to. The painting is interesting, but explainable.

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2012-03-07 15:24
it becomes even more interesting when a problem is the solution to another problem.

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-08 23:47
its a bird, NO,...its a plane! YES its a plane! The STEALTH Bomber paid us a visit on our was closer, but by the time i saw it and maneuvered around a fairly dangerous part of the river, and got my camera out of its waterproof case, it was at a little distance...still, heres the proof!

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-08 23:53
B-2 Spirit Stealth Bomber, USA...21 B-2s have been delivered to Whiteman Air Force Base in Missouri,... the river, and the campgrounds are not very far from this base! at night we watch some airforce maneuvers in the night sky. The planes look like stars because they are so far up, and we are out of the range of hearing them.

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-13 16:57
YES! they do get many reports from visitors who live far enough away who do not know about the air force base. Last year we were vacationing here and were about to enter a cave. A massive sonic boom erupted from nowhere! we had second thoughts about going in the cave, but did. The Boom was from one of the aircraft breaking the sound barrier!

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-11-13 20:50
from a distance and in a picture. the sound they make is unique. once you hear one, you will recognize the stealth before you see it!

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-08 22:57
its a large bird? or a plane? its a bird here, later in this album is the stealth bomber that flew overhead....

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-13 17:01
okay so i moved the stealth picture one back! lol, we never saw this Atlanta Falcon Touch down....we were probably at the snake bar! :D

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-09 00:10
ah, my friends brought their house with them!....i prefer to rough it and slept in the tent across the way!

azovazov 🇷🇺 2011-09-10 20:14
looks a bit like a disco party!

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-10 22:30

azovazov 🇷🇺 2011-09-11 20:17
who DJ'ed?

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-11 21:11
Mother Nature and her symphony of insects provided the perfect musical chorus for the flames of fire dance which included a final kiss on the marshmallow's cheeks.

azovazov 🇷🇺 2011-09-12 17:58
m-m-m, a real poetry!

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-12 19:04
The earth sings most beautifully, we learn a new song when we listen closely.

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-13 17:17
oh many songs were played there from groups like: Flea; W.A.S.P.; The Yellowjackets; Scorpions; The Spiders From Mars; Jon Cicada; Gnat King Cole; The Crickets, the Beatles, Adam and the ants, the BEE Gees; BEEyonce; BEEthoven; i caught a Buzz on the last three!

azovazov 🇷🇺 2011-09-14 20:49
BEEing caught on that - isn't that nice?

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-15 14:54
its so much nicer to be caught up in the sounds of nature, than the noise pollution of the city traffic!

azovazov 🇷🇺 2011-09-15 20:06
... which happens vice versa more often...

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-16 00:08
some people have become so liking of that city way of life, that even when they "get away to nature," they bring their house with them and all the modern appliances and conveniences. They go inside their trailer and its as if they never left home. They missed the owls calling, and all the sounds of nature at night. One of the nights, the fog was so thick that it formed droplets on the leaves, and as they gathered and dropped, they made the sound of a light rain falling on the tent. My friends in the trailer missed that as well.

azovazov 🇷🇺 2011-09-16 19:37
...the music of the night...

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-17 06:14
of course i also heard one of my friends "sawing logs" (snoring) loudly in the tent nearby. Thankfully we did not share the same tent or i would have gotten no sleep. Just far enough away to be a background noise. :)

azovazov 🇷🇺 2011-09-17 22:17
i hate snoring sounds in the night!

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-18 00:25
One time while camping, we were between two loud snoring people in tents to both sides in close proximity. It sounded like the mating call of the Grizzly Bears! :)

azovazov 🇷🇺 2011-09-18 23:25
if that had been me (in the middle), there would have been two dead men and one alive who had a good sleep.

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-20 16:54
it was so funny that we were in tears from laughing so hard, and our laughter woke them up!

azovazov 🇷🇺 2011-09-20 20:23
...a go-round of emotions!

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-21 11:57
at first it was aggravating, then someone farted loudly, and you can imagine the scene as we ROTFL- rolled on tent floor laughing!

azovazov 🇷🇺 2011-09-21 21:54
was it spacious enough for that!?

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-22 02:08
sure! it was a 10x12 foot tent. 2 people were in it. 3 can fit comfortably, and 4 maximum, being close. How large were the tents you used?

azovazov 🇷🇺 2011-09-22 20:32
the one i slept in was like a flat with a hall plus two rooms: one for two and the bigger one for 4, i think. but the boys slept there being 6 in number. two of them slept in "my" compartment (one by one) but then one went home because of some light disease and they stayed sleeping together.

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-24 17:10
did you play any tricks on them? or they on you? and rubber spiders or snakes? :)

azovazov 🇷🇺 2011-09-24 22:50
i was played two tricks on. but a young girl got a hit on her head by a heavy electric torch from me! sorry! (i was not in the mood of playing games at that moment and i told her not to approach me - she didn't follow my advice and was punished for that! i'll try to find pics of another trick and i'll place them at the end of the album (if i succeed!)

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-24 23:08
wow! "The terminator" in action! :) you have pics of when they loaded her into the ambulance? She should have listened to you and avoided the brain damage! Was she in a coma for very long? :)...oh i am sure she just said ow! and it probably didn't even leave a mark, right?

azovazov 🇷🇺 2011-09-25 21:31
ha-ha-ha! i hope so!

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-26 02:43
one time i accidently broke my friends nose! we were on the beach in Galveston. He had been drinking and he had a Black Belt in Karate! a champion fighter! He was just playing with me when he tried a surprise fake kick to my face (not intending to hit me, but just missing) (showing off). My reaction or reflex was to punch him in the nose, breaking it and knocking him down. It just happened, i didn't even think about it, it was just a reflex!

azovazov 🇷🇺 2011-09-26 20:53
my uncle killed a guy at the disco many years ago when he was young - he just hit that guy (because of a girl i think), but didn't mean killing at all. he was sentenced 25 years in prison. i met him first when he was over forty, of course. he had no tattoo. he spoke without any bad language words. you could never think he'd spent in prison more than half of his life. he's still alive and tells funny stories (not about the prison years)! i never met any other person so strong-willed and hardy!

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-27 16:33
to answer your question, no i never killed anyone or spent anytime in prison. (they never caught me or found the body) friend apologized to me for his surprise kick! And i felt bad about what happened. Needless to say he respected my reflex reaction much more after that! He said i should study the martial arts with my quickness and strength, i could go far. I have heard prison will make you stronger both physically and mentally. I dont want to find out.

azovazov 🇷🇺 2011-09-27 21:54
(did i ask a question?) ... neither do i (want to find it out)

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-28 07:08
sometimes if someone wants to find out information about a person, they tell a parallel story about someone else, in an attempt for the other person to speak of similar events in their life. So, indirectly, it could have been interpreted that you possibly were asking a question, but not necessarily.

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-09 00:14
Marshmallow roasting....a private lesson for azovazov...:D...yes, these are from the Kraft Marshmallow bag i sent you, lol....Happy Birthday! as these were roasted special for you, on your birthday, and these amazing marshmallow pics are just for you!... Step one, remove marshmallows from bag and place on adequate roasting stick,,,a green tree branch will work if you have nothing else....

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-09 23:42
it is wise for beginners of this technique (and the people around them) to use much protective clothing, as a reflex reaction to a flaming marshmallow many limes results in an accidental launching of the treat in any direction!

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-10 01:58
Every Marshmallow has tender feelings, and their normally soft, enjoyable, puffy personality which makes you feel all gooey inside, may suddenly become fiery and crusty! He may require much counseling!

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-10 03:09
Your tender and caring words bring tears to my eyes! Our mutual feelings and concerns for Marshmallows is beyond expression! I remember one time when a bag of marshmallows was left on a chair and got sat upon....i cried for days! i still have nightmares!

azovazov 🇷🇺 2011-09-10 19:22
is it a picnic or a drama story, I wonder?..

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-10 19:49
Enter azov, stage right, feel the powerful attraction for roasting marshmallows! Honestly i did send only you this link to this picture of the marshmallows! its the wave again! A TOAST to the Wave, and a TOAST to the marshmallows! :)

azovazov 🇷🇺 2011-09-10 20:18
i'm no good spectator... but a good (eye) eater!

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-15 15:28
and i know you enjoy the warmth of friendship, like the warmth of an open fire on a cold night!

azovazov 🇷🇺 2011-09-15 20:17
did i have to be found outside on a cold night, i'd prefer a thick sleeping bag rather than an open fire!

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-15 23:19
Now i know you enjoy the warmth of friendship like a thick sleeping bag on a cold night! :)....but will a sleeping bag keep away the dangerous animal that fears fire?

azovazov 🇷🇺 2011-09-16 19:30
...and i'll be sleeping next to the fire! ;-)

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-17 06:20
i suppose it depends on location. a thick sleeping bag in a tent is fine where we were. But in Africa? i don't want to get eaten by a lion!

azovazov 🇷🇺 2011-09-17 22:22
that's why i'm never going there!

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-18 00:13
There is an Africa section at the local zoo. I can see everything i want to see there without traveling very far! All the wildlife (tamed, controlled) is on display.

azovazov 🇷🇺 2011-09-18 20:12
but you can never be allowed to sleep in a tent next to the lion's cage!

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-21 15:08
most of the time that is true, but being a conditional person, lol, i could see that happening if enough money was paid, and many documents were signed agreeing that the zoo would not be held responsible for any injuries or death that occurred.

azovazov 🇷🇺 2011-09-21 21:55
but that sounds suicidelike, doesn't it?

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-22 01:51
yes, in a way i suppose it does. There are many thrill seekers in the world. Some jump out of airplanes, some wrestle alligators, the rest of us get in our cars and drive on the freeway.

azovazov 🇷🇺 2011-09-22 20:28
ca. 40 000 people die on russian roads every year...

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-23 01:37
exactly 40,000 people die in this country also on the roads!.... sounds suicidelike, doesn't it?.... only 36,000 die from the flu or illness like that.

azovazov 🇷🇺 2011-09-23 21:45
...which shows that things looking quite innocent can be of greater danger than the things painted "black"!

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-23 22:31
your above statement is symbolic of this picture! The marshmallows are quite innocent looking, but they cover the fork which could be used as a weapon. The things painted black in the darkness of night, are generally less dangerous!

azovazov 🇷🇺 2011-09-24 22:14
...when the sun is up making all the night fears looking so minute!

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-25 00:30
The Living Light chases away the scary darkness. The marshmallows in this picture are symbolic of the pure, new earth! The fire is symbolic for our lives. We are in control of making this earth a warm, gooey, toasty place (lightly browned marshmallows),to be enjoyed, or a place of ugliness and bitterness (black, burned marshmallows). Its all in how we live our lives, treat one another and the earth! (no pollution)

"it's not clear where they clean; it's clear where they don't throw rubbish"

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-26 01:43
those who are clean in their own eyes and yet are not cleansed of their filth are deceiving only themselves.

azovazov 🇷🇺 2011-09-26 20:07
unfortunately, one needs time to see that mental filth...

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-27 17:11
yes, time, or a really good friend, or a really big mirror! :)

azovazov 🇷🇺 2011-09-27 22:33
but some mirrors reflect wrong images...

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-28 06:27
LOL, yes, leave it to you to think of that! :)..i remember visiting a carnival with a "house of mirrors." inside there were mirrors that distorted your image to make you look taller or shorter, thinner, or fatter. Even one made you appear upside down. if you have a shiny metal spoon you can reproduce these effects! in the part that holds the food you appear upside down, and you can make yourelf taller or shorter depending on the vertical angle. In Australia, i think the opposite is true, since they are on the bottom of the world, right? :)...i do know that their toilets flush with the water spinning the opposite direction as here.

azovazov 🇷🇺 2011-09-29 19:41
yes, the coreolis' power - it makes running water turn differently on the other side of the world. they have got left steeper river banks - we've got them right!

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-30 02:28
it is fascinating being able to study things from all over the earth by just sitting in front of the computer! Just imagine what early explorers and scientists would think of the internet and technology! Yesterday there was a funny story on the news about the GPS systems in vehicles. It seems some people are upset that it can track you and your position! Now how is it suppose to work if it doesn't know where you are? People are funny animals!

azovazov 🇷🇺 2011-09-30 20:34
some of them are more animals than people! :-) Have you ever read "animal farm" by george orwell?

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-10-01 01:18
no i haven't read that one of his. I have read 1984. Let me guess it is a book about society and government raising people to act like animals, sort of like brainwashing?

azovazov 🇷🇺 2011-10-01 18:20
naw. it's about a group of farm animals who get people off a farm, but they act and think like people do. funny thing - this book (fragments) got even into our english teaching books!

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-10-02 02:38
sort of a reversed life experience situation. A "what if" animals were in control instead of people scenario. sounds interesting!

azovazov 🇷🇺 2011-10-05 22:18
but my ones call this a very stupid book!

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-10-06 03:32
and somewhere in a distant galaxy, cows and farm animals are reading "people farm" and their little ones are saying the same thing! :)

azovazov 🇷🇺 2011-10-06 19:21
they should be living in an antimaterial galaxy, then...

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-10-07 01:13
yes, and i think the cows would be in a much better ("moo" d)

azovazov 🇷🇺 2011-10-07 18:46
"i like to moo-it, moo-it"?!

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-10-07 20:34
like a milk-shake?

azovazov 🇷🇺 2011-10-07 21:45
you are puzzling me again!

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-10-08 16:44
i don't want her, you can heifer!

azovazov 🇷🇺 2011-10-08 22:01
ah-h! do you mean milking a cow?!

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-10-08 22:37
thats one way to look at it! and moo-it, moo-it, was a reference to move it move it? a milk shake could be a cow dancing, or an ice cream drink, or as you say milking a cow. A Tri-fecta! :)

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-09 00:18
second...for a browned, perfectly roasted marshmallow, be careful not to get marshmallows into flames of fire or leave too long by coals without turning them...they will catch fire and be charcoaled black! keep close enough to brown, and rotate them carefully!

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-09 00:20
third...., roast for a minute ir two, checking the brown parts to see when its done...the heat of the fire and the distance will determine how long it takes to cook!

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-09 00:22
Perfect Marshmallows will be golden brown all over, with a hot gooey careful not to burn your mouth, let cool a few seconds! Then Enjoy! Some people make s'mores with graham crackers and a piece of chocolate candy bar and warm marshmallows....

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-09 00:23
Caution:....if you get too close to the fire, they will burn! some people like them this way, i prefer the golden brown way myself!

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-09 23:36
Thanks for the WARNING! Also, keep these away from cute hot boys as the same result may occur! (speaking from experience) :D

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-10 02:17
Yes, the emotional well being of a marshmallow is my top concern! Always keep plenty of camping boys nearby to help keep them happy!

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-10 17:29
Have you seen Ghostbusters with the Sta-Puff marshamellow man? He is one Happy Dude! He could never hurt anyone! And he has the sweetest taste and is so warm and creamy!

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-15 15:20
Jagar! Now warm creamy marshmallows do go well with cold and creamy ice cream!

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-13 17:40
its all a part of the Great Outdoors experience. Bug spray is a must! The dirt washes off, and the critters usually don't bother you if you leave them alone,....:D

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-14 08:42
on this trip, the only time i ever felt dirty was putting up the tent and taking it down. it was warm, and i got a bit sweaty. I went down to the river and swam in the clean, clear, cool, water, and felt clean, totally refreshed. I could have gone to the showers, as they were closer, but the fredom, and natural beauty called me to the river. once a year we do this trip, and it is always one of the best events of the entire year!

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2012-03-07 15:25
you should run for office!

i made a special brown one and smashed it into a ziplock bag for you!

azovazov 🇷🇺 2011-09-10 19:26
so what's gonna be done to it next?

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-10 19:52
i was sort of thinking of mailing it to you! a birthday present souvenir! :)

another view of our "Alien" insect....He is adorable! :)

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-09 23:32
yes, you did! but he was in a different pose and wearing a white t-shirt instead of the yellow one you see here! The expression on his face here is different also. Notice how happy he was to see me in the first pic, and here he is looking like a puppy dog who just got caught chewing on your best pair of shoes...:D

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-10 02:05
Jagar's shirts fit much nicer! This insect's shirts have four extra arm holes that really bug me!

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-10 03:15
my leg? in a shirt? oh you must be talking about when i borrowed his trousers? Yes, "THE FLY" was extremely difficult to zip up!

visionedit2u 🇺🇸 2011-09-15 15:18
oh i know you wouldn't mind, but i don't want to draw flies!
