SLU had their day at the St. Louis Cardinals. We bought tickets before we learned that Corvin had a Cross Country meet the same day. So you’ll notice Corvin isn’t in any of the photos (and I’m not a fan so there was never a ticket for me). Laura went and they all had a great time.
And I guess there needs to be a photo of some of the SLU people Danelle goes to school with 🙂
I took another evening ride going north.
I ended up in the land between the Mississippi and Missouri rivers. I was going to ride north to a free bridge, but it got late much sooner than I expected. So I gook some cool night photography and headed home on the Golden Eagle Ferry to save time.

Part of the joy of motorcycling for me is to be spontaneous. This means picking random roads to see where the go and stopping when you would continue in a car. Today’s ride had me out by Waterfall before I took a new road. I ended up in Pacific, Mo in an area I had been before. But I had never stopped at the overlook. So I parked at Jensen’s Point Overlook to hike up and check it out. Its just south of I-44 in Pacific, Mo on E. Osage Street. See map below.
Here are a few photos from the top. Its cool that you can see the river from the top.
Being a software developer, its almost expected that I’m a little weird or eccentric. I embrace this to make my job more enjoyable. One of the ways I do this is by keeping a theme. I got my theme of “Kelly Clarkson” from the move 40 Year Old Virgin. When Steve Carell’s character was getting his chest waxed…
So I’ve been adding Kelly Clarkson references in my code, test data, and screen shots for a while now. So I had a day off work and my co-workers took the opportunity to enhance my Kelly Clarkson. I’ll let the photos speak for themselves, but this is my desk!
Look and you can see the photo of Steve Carell from 40 Year Old Virgin in the photo below.
