Poor old granddad, I laughed at all his words

Scenes from yesterday & today...



Wookie.



This weekend was one for the scrapbook. If I had a scrapbook. And kept scraps.



Josh, we finally had corn snow. It was some sweet, slushy, sunny cream cheese snow.



When I write, I like to play one song on repeat, over and over. I am not sure why. A theme, maybe. I also like to go back and excise unnecessary words. As a rule, adverbs are superfluous.



It was the usual year-end madness at Big Sky.



We had such fun. In fact, I can't believe how much fun I have on a day-to-day basis.



And why not? It beats practicing law.



Often, I was paid - a lot - to be an asshole.



I was good at it.



I look back and shake my head.

I work as a professional now, but it is different. I don't have to be a dick on a daily basis.



Sometimes, though, to keep my skills sharp, I act like a complete dick for no reason.



I don't feel any real need to provide captions or explanations for the photos any more.



You don't care, do you?



I used to hate Steely Dan. Now I love Steely Dan. What happened? Age? Receding hairline? Middle age?



Guadaljara won't do.



I am nervous about my niece's heart surgery this Friday. I really shouldn't write about it, because my sister and my parents read this... but it helps. I am driving to Portland for it. Lucy is a special kid. She is really sweet. She has a good heart. God bless her.



No static at all.

Will be thinking of Lucy this Friday.

My son pointed to the first picture and wondered if he's related to Chewbacca...

Welcome back, old man.

Is that Wookie Screech?

I love that song. FM. Steely Dan has worked its way to my cd collection, and I used to be such a punk girl.

She's so young for such a serious condition. I think of my own kids.

Dude, my thoughts will be with you and yours tomorrow!

Steely Dan has long been a favorite of mine since high school days. The two favorites being Pretzel Logic and Kid Charlemagne. Check them out some time.
