iris cleans off her phone

browsing the photos on my phone, i realized i had taken hundreds during the crate lung tour when my camera was unavailable-- dead battery, packed away, or i had to be sneaky. it also came in handy to send photos from the road of things i wanted people in my life to see immediately. i thought i  should post some of them, in case my phone someday dies, or just for the sake of posterity. 

this first one is in my basement, prepping the posters and fliers for mailing to each city we were to visit:

here are the bears in cristie gunn's apartment, before they were born:
(i think the pink one was someday to become StrawBeary)

The frozen river in Lawrence, Kansas, drifting by our hotel room:

 what we lived on (fun fact: easy mac is lower in calories, fat, and sodium than cup of noodle... who knew??)

a jar of quail eggs in an antique store in austin texas: (as you can see, it will run you $58.00)

memories... of the way we were.




[text from Cristie Feb 23rd 5:20 pm]: 
"I'm in The Future. I can't drive it without smiling. It's like a capsule of memories. Or there's an exhaust leak."

[response from Iris Feb 23rd:
"I may put that on the Crate Lung blog... I'm like the paparazzi."
