Marty’s photo of the day #3372: Soon fall will be here; then a new president; then the end of the COVID-19 pandemic; then the Minnesota Vikings will finally win the Super Bowl. . . . Okay, maybe not that last one.
Marty’s photo of the day #3368: From the final episode of The Aussie Hands-on Naturalist, the Animal Planet channel’s latest attempt to recreate the magic of Steve Irwin’s The Crocodile Hunter: “G’day mate! Look at that Sheila. Isn’t she a beauty? Well, I’m just gonna sneak up on her and give her a big ol’ […]
Marty’s photo of the day #3355: Ah! Nothing says “Montana” quite like a vigorous game of moose-hide-and-seek in the front yard.
Marty’s photo of the day #3349: Nellie, our nine-month-old rescue dog, has been with us for three weeks now. Since Deb and I were starting all over (after the last of our three elderly dogs died), we had some important decisions to make. Do we let Nellie onto the couch? Do we let Nellie climb […]
Marty’s photo of the day #3342: Marty: “I love Sunday mornings in Montana—sitting out on the front porch, reading the Sunday paper with a cup of coffee by my side.” Nellie: “Forget the Sunday paper! You’d much rather pet the cute puppy, wouldn’t you? See how cute I am. How can you resist?”
Marty’s photo of the day #3322: I took this photo yesterday, in front of my house. Many people aren’t aware of it, but on Sundays momma deer gets the day off and daddy buck has to fawn over the kid.

Marty’s photo of the day #3257: “I know he’s in here somewhere!”
Since the rise of Donald Trump, numerous liberal friends have disapproved of my treatment of those in the Trump Cult. While I treat Trumpers with snark, those friends feel that a better way to deal with such people his through friendly conversations and reasoning. Now that we are into year four of the Trump Cult, […]
Marty’s photo of the day #3233: “So Donald Trump has now established that any American can say anything, no matter how dangerous, and claim it was ‘sarcasm’ if it comes back to bite them in the ass. He’s a hoot!” (Long-eared owl, photographed in Montana.)
Marty’s photo of the day #3231: Yesterday was a busy day! Martyman was at the local hospital entertaining patients, and the Republican Jesus was at the bowling alley and nail salon shooting coronavirus. Unfortunately, both are now convinced that they caught COVID-19. Fortunately, they both also saw Donald Trump on the television, getting great ratings […]
Sometimes I wonder if I use the word “fucking” too much in my posts. I don’t fucking think so, but what the fuck, I probably should fucking ask: Do you think I use fucking too fucking much? I mean, it’s a fucking good word with no fucking reason to be offended by it. Even evangelicals […]
Martyman asked me to remind you that today is National Beer Day. . . . As if today is different from any other day for him.
Marty’s photo of the day #3214: This is me, several years ago, kissing an eleven-foot-long African rock python I caught in Zimbabwe. Last year, if people had to choose between kissing someone who recently returned from a large evangelical church service or kissing an eleven-foot-long python, the vast majority would choose to kiss the evangelical.

Marty’s photo of the day #3209: My wife and I are well prepared for sheltering in place during the COVID-19 pandemic. Sure, I lost my April college speaking tour and a book-signing and all the press and publicity that goes with those events. Sure, many of the stores that carry Deb’s weaving kits have temporarily […]

Marty’s photo of the day #3199: I’m not sure what to title this shot: 1) A study in brown 2) Cane toads in Australia 3) Mitch McConnell and his family in the next life
Marty’s photo of the day #3198: Phew! I was worried there for a moment. I thought it was ARACHNID-19, but it was only ARACHNID-18. (Photographed in the Amazon rainforest of Peru)
