I still can't place the blue thing on the near corner. Assuming it's got a neck strap on it, that leaves just a few choices. I can't find binoculars that look like that. Could be an instamatic movie camera but again, can't find an exact match. If it's a power cord and not a neck strap, then maybe a cheap slide projector? It's sitting on some mechanism that could be feet, could be controls. It's a mystery for the ages.

Yes. I'm sure you're right. It looked separate for a moment.

There used to be a lot of "cabins" around here like that. Basically unfinished houses, concrete foundation, drafty, reclaimed windows... Great in the summer but miserable otherwise. Looks like they have some hot dogs and burgers ready to go. That pack of burger buns looks like they already have meat in them. I'm pretty sure the blue thing about to fall off the table is some 60s-era birding binoculars.
 
Yeah, I was trying to figure out what that was.  It looks like she's done folding the laundry "whites" - sock and small towels - and she left the clothespins near the black and blue mystery object.  I like the Lipton Onion Soup mix; she's studying the packet, probably planning on making the "California Dip".
Yes, there's no sort of insulation at all, just exposed wall studs with the outer sheathing behind them - she's got her hair-dryer cranked up though.

That was started around 1994.  I made a joke about John Wesley Powell naming things after himself, Powell Wyoming, Lake Powell... of course they came long after he'd died. Someone didn't get the joke and sent the most vile and profane email I've ever received... probably in the first 100 emails I ever received in my life.
 


Good joke! Sounds like you ran into a deranged descendant of JW with a sore need to vent randomly.

Love that "tour" of the Cybersty, Bill. Especially the navigational arrows that lead back and forth past the front of KPIG (but never actually inside).

I love that "Welcome to the Cybersky" slogan! It's to "cyberspace" as "Jefferson Airplane" is to "Jefferson Starship"  lol 

You must have a ton of warm memories of your Wild Bill days. Wish I'd been there with you.  But the last 14 years at RP has been remarkable, all due to your amazing artistry as the master webspinner of music. These days I have a job with a major company that allows me to work full time remotely from my home in beautiful Colorado via VPN & video conferencing. My RP iPhone app is on all day. I remember the good old days of participating in the first RP mobile beta on my iPhone 1 - "can you hear me now" was a thing to be sure. Now you have what I consider is one of the premiere streaming apps out there, and I work for an advanced technology R&D shop that pilots all our apps on iOS. Thanks for the journey, Wild Bill! (and Rebecca).
