Some times it does not go as planned.

On Friday I was lifting a cabinet and wanked my back completely out of sorts. I have been laid up this weekend trying to nurse it back. I even went to see Dr Nakasawa so he could turn me into a human pin cushion. Hurricane Hanna was visiting yesterday, so I would not have gotten much done regardless. I am also happy to say no leaks....

Today is a slightly different story. The back is still killing me, but I wanted to go out and play with my girlfriend a little. I have been to some locations and needed to add some new decals to the door.

We earned these two going to Jersey Shore Haven a few weeks ago. I traded Rob Baker for the Delaware Memorial Bridge decal, and it is a beauty.

This is one of the most beautiful decals I have ever purchased. It was made by Arrow Novelty Works sometime in the 40's from my guess. It is has very vivid color and is a collectors dream.

Unfortunately they do not always hold up over time and can turn into this when you put them in water. This is the chance you take.

Rob does not like when I put non location oriented decals on my door. I put this one on my window out of respect. The decal go onto the glass really well. This fact might be the reason why some people put theirs there.

However, I could not resist putting this one on the door. Flower Power is the need of the hour... a great sentiment if you ask me. I wish the hair color was reversed on this though, would have looked just like Beth and I.

You need to come up and earn your Long Lake decal.

I could not agree more. We are talking about next summers plans and we are thinking of going to New Found-land. Long Lake is right on the way. I also would need to find said decal too.
