We started on a good note. Vanessa had never been to Crowder’s Mountain State Park and I wanted to introduce her to it. My last visit to this park was on December 30th, 2011. It’s extremely rare that I can introduce her to something that has to do with hiking that I’ve done and she hasn’t. Let us say that she has a lot more experience hiking that I do. So, on January 1st, I drove us to Crowder’s Mountain…

Today, I visited the Alameda Park Zoo here in Alamogordo, NM. While I was checking out the cougars (No! Not the older ladies looking for younger guys … real cougars, you know, mountain lions!) I noticed this handsome fellow get into a crouch, like he was stalking something. I looked over my shoulder and there was a lady looking at him and walking very slowly, keeping eye contact with him, like she was stalking him. She moved slowly around the…

I met Will in SMA. He and his wife had just retired and were traveling the world. They were on their first stop, I believe, in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico.

We hung out in SMA as well as in Washington state. I got a chance to hear about and…

As I look back through the archives and see how many times I’ve posted lately, they’ve been few and far between. Getting back to work in the office has been an adjustment, to say the least; however, I’m rather in the flow of it, now and don’t really find it a problem. Of course, I do miss being able to get up in the morning, go to the dam, take pictures, and still be able to start work by 9:00…

Well, I probably didn’t get the kind of looks that these guys did, after all, I didn’t have on a kilt, but … Last night I stayed a work a little bit late (late for me, that is). An architectural photographer had been in the area all day, taking pictures of the office space, of execs, etc. Well, a little after 6:00 PM, most everyone had cleared out except for the photographer, the lady who’d been helping him all day…

This morning I woke up, checked the weather app on my phone and found that the conditions outside were, shall we say, less that agreeable. It was 16 degrees. Thankfully, inside of the house it was a tad bit warmer. I looked out into the backyard and noticed this fella hunched in the grass, patiently waiting for the first rays of sunlight I supposed. I kept my eye on him during a half hour or so when I walked past…
