Rocky Raccoon checked into his room
Only to find Gideon’s bible
Rocky had come equipped with a gun
To shoot off the legs of his rival
His rival it seems had broken his dreams
By stealing the girl of his fancy.

Major Revisions to SW

Sleeping Wolves is getting a major makeover..not just a facelift…the guts are coming out too.

The new site is progressing well – the original front page is gone – in its place is the blog front end. PixelPost will be used for all the galleries – one for Travel, the other for Nature – and a Coppermine Portfolio will contain hundreds of new photos when complete.

The old galleries will gradually be replaced with new ones and retired.

Flip Book

FireFox users can click or drag and turn the page. Internet Explorer users (why not upgrade to FireFox?) you can click the top or bottom corners of the pages.

Dust Bunnies

The sensor on my Nikon (actually the low pass filter) has crap on it – most likely dust – despite my best efforts. I’ll try to clean it with a puff of air from a blower…let’s see how that goes.

In the interim, the healing brush in CS2 allows me to obliterate the 2 alpha dust bunnies.

I wish that I could fly
Into the sky
So very high
Just like a dragonfly

Id fly above the trees
Over the seas in all degrees
To anywhere I please

Oh I want to get away
I want to fly away

What’ll you do when you get lonely
And nobody’s waiting by your side?
You’ve been running and hiding much too long.
You know it’s just your foolish pride.

~Eric Clapton

Funeral for a Friend

That’s how the Elton John concert started last night (Remembrance Day) – with the classic Funeral for a Friend.

The roses in the window box
Have tilted to one side
Everything about this house
Was born to grow and die
Oh it doesn't seem a year ago
To this very day
You said I'm sorry honey
If I don't change the pace
I can't face another day


For an old girl, Elton still rocks – he opened and went non-stop for over 2 and a half hours.

The band was great too – Nigel Olson, Elton John’s original drummer (circa 1970 Elton John Band) was still banging away.

They played all the classics, some newer stuff, and some brand new stuff (Captain and the Kid album)

Concert finished with Candle in the Wind (Norma Jean version) and a dedication to the Montreal audience, This is your Song.
