Bored, couldn't sleep, so I whipped up a batch of new LJ icons. Some I am not so sure when I will ever use them, but I thought they were neat images.



From Oregon Trail; always a favorite saying of mine.


Yes, it's a fly on an innertube.


Well, did I?!


Lou as a Fur in Black, having accidentally erased his already somewhat limited brain. Done up as an acrylic badge at AC 2009 by the incomparable cooner.


Hobbes. I <3 me some Hobbes.


Pogo Possum. I likewise <3 me some Pogo...and the old icon I had of him was kinda grainy and crappy.


Iiiiiiiiiiiiiii ain't got no bodeeee...and nobody cares for me chikka tikka chicka ti cha!


Abe in color...too interesting for me to resist.


Coins coins coins. I was surprised to find I didn't have a generic icon for coin collecting. Now I do!


Some of the ruins of Fort McKavett, Texas. Took this picture my very own self, I did.


A very creepy tree at Fort McKavett. Even creepier in the dark.

Nice! How did you manage to get such a good picture of the Cooner badge? =]

cooner was nice enough to share a scan of the original artwork with me. o(:o)

That ruined fort bears an uncanny resemblance to the ones in Oblivion--all it needs is some "castle style" round columns and it might as well BE one!

Heh...I have never seen Oblivion, so I can't attest to that.

Fort McKavett was an outpost fort (out in the middle of nowhere in central Texas; it is still very isolated) that protected settlers from 1852 to 1883. More info, should you so desire, is at http://www.thc.state.tx.us/hsites/hs_mckavett.aspx?Site=McKavett

Oh, and it's haunted--which is why I went there in the first place. o(:o)

Wow.... where did you get the colored Abe pic?

Lincoln has always been my favorite president, so I did a Google image search on his name, and this colorized portrait came up:

Sine color film was not available in Lincoln's lifetime, whoever did the colorization of this photo did a very careful and detailed job.
