Photo Day Eight, Labor Day


This is why you can never mistake my truck for anyone else's:



And a bonus, my plates, also distinctly me:




Hope everyone else is likewise having a great day off. I don't get a lot of them, so I enjoy them when I get them. I'm getting close to the end of watching Deep Space Nine, which is, hands down, the best of the Star Trek serieses (sorry, TOS fans. It's really a better overall show, just not "Classic 60's Television"). This final season is a bit looser and more lackadasical than previous ones were, and it's no wonder it finally wound down and ended, but my goodness, this bastard stepchild of the ST 'Verse deserved a whole lot more than it ever got.

Also watched a Doctor Four adventure, The Deadly Assassin, which everyone who wants to understand the entirety of The End of Time needs to see, because it explains, well, pretty much everything about the Time Lords, Rassilon, and the Eye of Harmony.

Am now roasting root veggies on the grill and will soon throw the steak out there, too. Barb made pie. But my God, it's HOT today. It's supposed to cool down this week but no sign of that yet!

I love your license plate! And I preferred Next Generation, but not enough to ever watch again.

See, that's the point -- TNG was a good show, but while there are episodes I'd watch (and do) again, DS9 withstands a complete re-watch because it had a tight internal continuity AND an overall arc that not only was season-long, but actually SERIES long! In fact, in re-watch, I'm astounded at how well they kept that construction going for the entire 7 year run.

And thanks!

love the license plate.

I loved pretty much all the Star Treks barring enterprise. All the time you heard how DS9 sucked compared to Babylon 5. Well I loved DS9, hated the last season maybe even the last two (whenever it was they went to war) but over all I thought it was great. I adored Quark

Thanks.

Actually, the war started back in Season Three, or early Season Four; it was like a lot of real wars, long and largely off-screen. It provided the fuel for almost every conflict they got into, as well as all the intrigues and just about everything else.

It's been awesome watching again. All the characters are so exceptionally well done; I missed most of S6 and S7 because our local Paramount channel (UPN, at the time) was also the "Home of the Suns" and, as with S6 and S7 of Buffy, basketball ALWAYS beat out genre shows.

I didn't mind the war at first. when it refused to end... I had similar interuption issues too. I would like to see DS9 again. i'm enjoying seeing ST:TNG again

Since I'm watching four to eight episodes on the weekends, it's taken a few months to get through (Netflix), but it's been well worth it.

Sisko rules. Best Starfleet captain EVER.

I used to have a Quark icon. I wonder if I can find it...

nods nods, i bet. especially since occasionally netflix sends out weird crap from halfway down your list....

Sisko was great

I've never had that happen... Once or twice they've sent me the next one because the top choice was unavailable for some reason, but in those cases I often ended up with five instead of four...

occasionally like the one that's coming, i'm getting one 4 down on the list. the only thing I can think is that suddently all four others were out
