Welcome to the Club!




Just wanted to welcome my Las Vegas daughters to the snow club!





Since you're now as frozen as we are in the Pacific Northwest, no reason not to drop up for a visit anymore, eh?

The Holiday Season

I've been spending a lot of time at home which is great. I bought a house here because I really like being here and I'm happiest when I'm home. Though it has meant trading my role as Mr. Systems-Fixit for Mr. House-Fixit. It seems like every room in the house needed something to be done to it, not to mention the gutters, the greenhouse, the back yard, etc. Doing some work in the master bedroom and fixing kitchen cabinets this week.

I've been doing a lot of hanging out with Angie and the Dude. Doing a fair amount of cooking in the evenings which I find very therapeutic.

Still getting work done. Completed a big rack consolidation project and got the number of racks in my lab down to 2 from a total of 5. Also put in rugs, the big whiteboard, and the big LCD monitor for video editing of presentations I'm doing.

Thanksgiving was quiet with just the three of us. But I did talk to the girls. Jasmyne went to Jorjanna's in Las Vegas so all my girls were together. Here are some of the pictures she sent.



Last Saturday, Angie turned 49 years old. We had a cake and saw a Bette Davis film (her favorite actress), Storm Center, that's pretty hard to come by.





Later we walked downtown for the annual Christmas Light Parade. The Dude had a pretty good time. He loves seeing people and they love his royal Dudeliness. He should have had his own float!
