Summer ’05

Summer in Meeker is a short-lived thing, and this year it was very comfortable.  Sandi and I took several trips to see Joe and Anita in Missouri, even spent a lot of time looking at property to purchase.  In the end, nothing came of it as there isn't much in the way...

Wood Stork

Spent some time at the lake at the Orlando Fairgrounds watching wildlife.  The Wood Storks were content to stand nearby and splash in the shallows, but eventually took off for parts unknown.   Below: Splashing in the water   Below: Finally got camera shy and...

Our iPhone 3G S Warranty

On release day Sandi and I both got the new iPhone 3G S models and they are great.  Last week, after having the 3G S only 10 days or so, we were playing Scrabble together over WiFi in bed when all of a sudden the entire left one-third of her screen inexplicably went...

Not quite spring yet…

It's been a cold and wet winter here in Delta compared to normal.  For us it's still a lot milder than Meeker and we are enjoying it daily.  We get a lot of light snow that melts off the same day.  The temps are normally well into the 40's by now but...

Ma Famiglia in Meeker

Went to lunch with Brandy, Matt, Justin, Dakota, Jimmy, Eva and Sandi.  We were there for Justin's opening game 'Cowboy Football!'  Beer choices are sometimes hard, but Drop Top carried the day, and we found that mother Eva reallllly liked it!

Mid-June update

As I mentioned, tomorrow I go in for my 2nd surgery.  I'm looking forward to it and getting my intestines back to normal.  The worst part is having to stay in the hospital bed for 7 days. We are in the middle of our first hay cutting this year, don't know if we will...

Great Memorial Day Burgers

But first, a thought and a prayer for all those that have given the ultimate sacrifice in defense of our great country, as well as those who have returned with physical and emotional scars. Thanks So, ain't that a swell  lookin' burger?

Sunset over the Cimarrons

Sandi and I went to Montrose to help Jeff and Leta paint their house and do some grading with the Bobcat.  It was a fun day that culminated with dutch-oven ribs server outside under a beautiful sunset. The image below was taken looking almost straight up as the sun...

Christmas and New Years

Despite the inactivity here on the site, we did indeed celebrate both Christmas and New Years. Matt, Brandy and the boys arrived on Christmas afternoon, followed shortly thereafter by Jeff and Leta. We enjoyed a fantastic Prime Rib dinner and were joined by Jim and...

Photos From The Past 2

This set has more recent photos, youngest at age 11 in the Drum Corps.

View from my room in Myrtle Beach last month.

Stayed at the Jamaican, a part of the Caribbean Resorts property. Great view and newly remodeled rooms.  Very inexpensive at only $78/night.  Good food right next door at the Sea Captain's House where I hit the breakfast buffet several days.

Surgery for Carpal Tunnel

Over the past year I have noticed a steadily increasing numbness in my right hand, primarily affecting my thumb and middle finger. A trip to an orthopedist confirmed a carpal tunnel constriction diagnosis. In addition to the numbness the doctor pointed out a...

Peacock at Magnolia Park

  Unfortunately, although I followed him for about 30 minutes, he didn't open his fantail.  He looks a bit scraggly so it may not have been that spectacular anyway.

More iPhone stuff and NCT update

As if you were interested.  I've been running the v3.0 beta for weeks now and it is nice.  But the really exciting news is the new hardware that is probably going to be released, probably in June.  I plan on pushing my current 16GB 3G phone to...

Found another old pic…

Probably taken in 1996 after we moved to the house on the Kern River outside of Bakersfield.  We had the black H1, the SL500 and Sandi's Miata.

Our garden is going great!

Everyone seems to get butt-hurt so easily these days.  At least the Irish don't get offended easily. I don't see them demanding that Lucky Charms change their name or stop using the diminutive supernatural being in Irish folklore, the beloved...

Hyperlapse Video

About 7 minutes of Hyperlapse video of my 40 minute ride home from work at the Matawan Aberdeen Library. It starts off on surface streets for about 1.5 miles but the balance of about 6 miles is on the Henry Hudson Trail which parallels the Ocean, sometimes only a...
