Cappy's Second Adventure into Dinosaur National Monument

Pictures from my hike down Jones' Hole.  Saw some pictographs and made some friends at the end of the hike which you should see if you look closely enough!

I hope your camera was high density pixel. Some of these shots are worth blowing up to good size wall art.

What? No drawings of the legendary Kokopelli and his seductive flute?
(Maybe try New Mexico again)

Found you googling if Mike Norman's stuff was fraudulent? Thank you for confirming.

You might like some of the work of the Author Judith Martin. She is very witty. And, I won't tell any one you read her.

Some of her best put together books can provide a valuable lesson and a hardy laugh every pair of pages. Although, it often takes >30 seconds for me to understand and then explode laughing.

She, a.k.a. Miss Manners, is an enemy of b.s. and very good at cutting trough the b.s.

Here are some quotes as a sample for your convenience; put down the coffee:

You, sir, are an anarchist, and Miss Manners is frightened to have anything to do with you. It is true that questioning the table manners of others is rude. But to overthrow the accepted conventions of society, on the flimsy grounds that you have found them silly, inefficient and discomforting, is a dangerous step toward destroying civilization.”
― Judith Martin"

“Miss Manners hereby absolves everyone from feeling any embarrassment deliberately imposed by others.”
― Judith Martin, Miss Manners' Guide to Excruciatingly Correct Behavior

“The President of the United States is addressed by nickname ({by} his or [her] enemies') before the election and "Mr. President" after taking office. Everybody else in Washington is styled "The Honorable" to make up for what everybody outside of Washington calls them.”
― Judith Martin, Miss Manners' Guide to Excruciatingly Correct Behavior

The pejorative term "political correctness" was adapted to express disapproval of the enlargement of etiquette to cover all people, in spite of this being a principle to which all Americans claim to subscribe
Judith Martin

" A lot of men got upset at the feminist movement because they had all the toys and we wanted some."
Judith Martin

“There are three possible parts to a date, of which at least two must be offered: entertainment, food, and affection. It is customary to begin a series of dates with a great deal of entertainment, a moderate amount of food, and the merest suggestion of affection. As the amount of affection increases, the entertainment can be reduced proportionately. When the affection IS the entertainment, we no longer call it dating. Under no circumstances can the food be omitted.”
― Judith Martin

When politeness is used to show up other people, it is reclassified as rudeness. Thus it is technically impossible to be too polite.
Judith Martin

It is not rude to turn off your telephone by switching it on to an answering machine, which is cheaper and less disruptive than ripping it out of the wall. Those who are offended because they cannot always get through when they seek, at their own convenience, to barge in on people are suffering from a rude expectation.
