Picked my kids up from school again on Friday, just dodged a much needed thunder shower in the afternoon, but we ended up only getting about 3/16" of rain. Still better than nothing. I got a couple cool shots while driving on back roads too. It was so dark at 2:30 in the afternoon that I could see the headlights shining on the road.

I've put more miles on this thing in the past week than the rest of the summer combined, and it's been a lot of fun.
The tiny bit of rain knocked the smoke out of the sky, and today was a beauty day. A pretty nice sunset tonight too, first one we've seen in a long time.

Only a little bit locost related, my wife is getting set up to make custom printed t-shirts and other stuff. She made me a shirt today.

It doesn't show up that great, but the orange is a decently close match to my car. She scanned the extra emblem I have from Botbasher's group buy a couple years ago. She's been busy with all kinds of stuff too, here's a vinyl sticker she made for our son's bedroom door, and a coffee mug for me.

If anyone here is interested in something, let me know, she's on the lookout for new things to try, and hoping to start up a home based business with this kind of stuff.

I strongly suspect that if she's going to set up for making t-shirts like that one, there will be a LOT of people wanting them...including me! Seriously - I want one!! Please, keep us posted!! :cheers:

Love the coffee mug!
HamDip made one for me that says "They say Super Heroes don't exist. They haven't met my Papa Bear!"
I'm very proud of that mug... :mrgreen:

Cool, sounds good. So far she's just been doing stuff for the kids and I to get the hang of it, but she's got a t-shirt press on the way now and a box of blank shirts showed up yesterday. Once she gets a webpage set up, I'll post in the for sale section.

Yup, stuff like that is way cooler than generic store bought gifts. When the kids were even littler, she had them out their hand prints on some mugs. My wife and I each have one, as well as each of the grandparents.
