Yesterday’s Drive-by Shootings

Yesterday, we took a spur-of-the-moment trip to Des Moines.  As we zipped along in the pickup, I randomly aimed and shot.  From I-235, its pretty much impossible to get a clear view of the entire state capitol building, so I zeroed in on the golden dome only.

My husband and I chuckled over this “Admobile”---a moving billboard!  (We don’t get off the farm very often, so it doesn’t take much to amuse us.)

Unexpected circumstances took us past the Marion County courthouse in Knoxville.

And, near the Des Moines Airport, we saw this plane which appeared to be just sitting there in the air, not moving at all.  I’m not kidding.  Apparently, it was waiting patiently for its turn to land.

In case I don’t blog again until 2012, here’s hoping you have a Happy New Year!
