I am known for many things:
- Riding long distances on a bike
- Making people laugh
- McGyvering things to make it work (whatever IT is)
- Sipping wine
- And being able to drink a beer while standing on my head (I can still do it!)
I am not known for deep contemplative thoughts….
This morning I may have had one! I may have hurt myself a bit, as I had a headache for most of the day…. Continue reading “Just a thought….”
Folks, we have all heard of writers block. This is when people who get paid to write books or magazine articles get stuck, They can stare at a piece of paper (showing my age here) or a computer screen for hours and nothing gets written.
Well there is also bloggers block, or so I’ve decided. It’s when you love to blog, and want to blog, but you are damned if you can come up with a decent post. So, in an effort to kick-start my creative juices I decided to cheat a bit! Continue reading “The 2017 cycling story in photos”
Folks, there truly are such things as first world problems. You know the ones: Internet is down so you can’t read my blog posts (which I am sure is your favorite!). The Starbucks App won’t pre-order so you actually have to stand in line, or the iPad dies just as you get to the best part of a book on the Kindle app…
For 2017, my recurring 1st world problem as revolved around the GoPro… Continue reading “The GoPro and 2017”
How do you know you are relaxing more and more on a vacation? It’s when you wake up later and later. No lie, I have been seriously lazy this week, but it just feels SO damn good to sleep in. Yesterday was no different. Continue reading “Cannon Beach 2017 Part IV”
The last two nights have been, hands down, great! Last night (Thursday) Michelle and I had date night. We went out to eat at one of our favorite places, Arnies. It is right on the water in Edmonds, near the ferry dock.
We go for happy hour in the bar and try hard to get a window seat.
I won’t lie, last night, a group went in the front door ahead of us, but stopped at the elevator. Michelle and I RAN up the stairs! We got a window!! (ok they did too, but we got to choose the best seats! )
Today, I took off after work to take advantage of the gorgeous weather in late October
and do a long bike ride. Both nights were fun, but both had that extra piece: nature was out and showing off! Continue reading “Two vastly different nights, with one similarity!”
I fully understand there are different people in the world. We all have the things we like and don’t like. Since Thursday, Michelle and I have been at Cannon Beach, with this view outside out window.
And we have loved every minute of it! I have to laugh, though, some people think our oceans are boring. Continue reading “So many things to do at our beaches!”
Long ago, I made the New Years resolution that I not only kept that year, but I was able to keep year in and year out. I resolved NOT to make resolutions! It has worked wonders for me.
However, that does not mean I let a new year go by without noticing it. With the holidays having just occurred, I ate and drank WAY too much (though it was damn good).
The Tony diet is tossed out the window until the New Year… Continue reading “Starting out right”
I like to take pictures. Anyone who has seen more than one of my posts can’t help but see that. Nowadays, with smartphones. everyone does. When I finally joined the smartphone generation, I took even more. .. Continue reading “Take the time and Take the camera”
For the last 3 days, any chance I have gotten, I have talked about our trip up to Mt. Rainier on Independence day. As I said, we walked all over the Paradise visitor area. And just as we were about to leave Michelle noticed this.
Buried in the pavement were these markers listing the names and elevations of some of my most memorable places. Some good, and some not so good. I thought I’d share a few and the memories they reminded me of Continue reading “Years of Memories in one small area”
Last year, on the 4th of July, Michelle and I decided to do something silly and touristy. We went into Seattle and rode the Duck. We had a blast! So this year, since it was a three-day weekend, we were pondering what we should do! She suggested “Let’s get up early and go to Mt Rainier!!” “Oh hell yeah!” (all the pics that follow were taken by Michelle and I, some of them turned out well enough that they could have been snagged from google, but nope all ours!)
