Smart Phone Saturdays: Settlers of Catan

21 Mar 2015, Posted by P.J. Oswald in Things

I take a break from my blogging exploits over the weekend — but I uphold a promise to deliver a simple smart phone photo each Saturday.

This week, you’ll find a group of my friends winding down over everyone’s favorite German indie board game: The Settlers of Catan. When it comes to this game, its more like winding up!



The Sunlit Spire of Old Tron Kirk

Cathedrals like this are few and far between where I live.

Not only do I live in the United States, where the fine art of century-in-the-making-type churches has been lost, but I also live on the West Coast. This is the land of churches that are planted with zeal in humble concrete walled warehouses. Heck, I’ve got a church that meets in my little house. For us, the art of place doesn’t matter to us as much as just having a place.


Squashed at the Farmers Market

My family has several Saturday morning traditions, one of which is entirely indulgent and one of which is totally organic: visiting the farmers market.

The wife and I began shopping the local farmers market some years ago. We had hoped to enjoy a morning walk and find some unique and inexpensive veggies along the way. What we discovered there in the Sport Chalet parking lot was much more.


Ground Control to Major William

“If you can’t beat ’em, join ’em.”

It seems to me that most of the Looney Toons I watched in my youth ended with that line, when antagonists like Elmer Fudd and Sylvester the Cat finally gave up on their fruitless plans to terrorize the heroes.
