Don't try this at home


Tess and I were in Vancouver, Washington this weekend for our niece's first birthday party. While we were there, we visited old Fort Vancouver. It isn't really old. It is a reconstruction of a fort that was built on that spot. Still it is kind of cool. They have cannon lying around randomly and for some reason, I have difficulty simply posing normally for photographs, especially around cannons.
I think it is a guy thing.

Every once in a while you just might post something you maybe wish you hadn't.

Do I detect cannon envy by any chance?

To know that, you need merely poke your head out the door and ask the right person(s).

You have a pair of steel ones Uncle Tim.

For some reason this post caused me to think of Blazing Saddles. Maybe the part where Cleavon Little utters the immortal "Excuse me while I whip this out"

Tim ID said...

Thanks nephew. It runs in the family.

Tim ID said...

Good one Lights. For a minute there I thought you were going to talk about the campfire scene.

You've got balls Tim. Quite a few of em.

Great photos!!!

Tim ID said...

Thanks Shandi,
It takes balls to pose for photos like this. :)

Holy crap, I just noticed the new art at the top of the blog. That's freaking funny. I can't stop chuckling.

Oh yes. It's a guy thing. And just how many balls does one man need?

The Michael said...

Damn, Tim, I do believe your cannon is bigger than my cannon!

So the park officials didn't mind you crawling all over their guns, or having sex with that one gun?

Tim ID said...

Kristy, balls and toys, the man who dies with the most, wins.

THE Michael, It's not the size of the cannon, it's how you aim them that matters. And I was posing with the cannons in the privacy of my own fort.

unfortunately, it isn't only a guy thing. at 20 my boyfriend and I took pics of each other posing with a (very large) cannon. He was leaning on it with a lifted eyebrow and a wry grin, I was riding it er, um... lets call it, flamboyantly. but then, my excuse is that I was 20.
