Poor old granddad, I laughed at all his words

Scenes from yesterday & today...


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.
