That's me, I'm him...

DISCLAIMER: Although I am a car guy this is not solely a car blog. I will talk cars, but this is also a blog about how I view the world. Just ask my mom and she will tell you my first word was "car". I do have a slight fascination with them. Luckily I have a supportive family and a very understanding wife...

Over the river and through the woods...

To my childhood house we go.

Yep, Thanksgiving with the WY fam. We left a day early to beat the "blizzard of the decade", which was nothing like they thought it would be. Top 10 of the trip:

1. Drove 11 hrs, because of bad roads only to end up in about -20 weather (probably closer to -40 with the windchill).
2. Ate at Taco John's - a must whenever we are close to one!
3. Spent a couple of days seeing family and friends.
4. A fabulous Thanksgiving feast.
5. Slept too little.
6. Suffered some damage to the car.
7. Watched Max make new friends and go through the anxiety of adjusting to new places.
8. Wildlife watching / spotting.
9. Farson ice cream.
10. Shannon's induction into the Rocky Mtn Oysters eating club.

HP and the Deathly Hallows pt. I

Wow two movies in a week. Are we developing a habit here. Not really - Shannon received premiere passes from here work.

I must say I have never read the books, but I have enjoyed the movies. Now with the end so close I am starting to feel a little sad...

See you in July!

I thought i would never say this again..

I'm getting the pig!

Shannon and I just saw the movie R.E.D.

For me movies are bad right away and never change OR I tend to like them the more I have time to think about them. This movie falls into the latter for me.

I should have know - I mean how can you go wrong with John Malkovich, Bruce Willis, and Morgan Freeman...

3 years, 1 month, 9 days = 1134 days = 27,216 hours = 1,632,960 minutes = 97,977,600 seconds...

This is how long it took me to reach a personal goal I set, and no matter how you look at it it seemed so much longer to me. Probably didn't help that there was a leap year in there...

Yesterday I was able to check one of the bucket list though when I received a text from one of my buddies saying he just saw pictures in a magazine that were mine. Yes that's right my name, and photos, are finally in print. Truth is I have know it was going to happen for awhile - I just couldn't let the cat outta the bag.

So if you feel so inclined go down to your local newsstand and pick up the January 2010 issue of World of Rods magazine and check out a few shots by yours truly in the Speed Week coverage.

5 months old and losing his "onions"...

I've been trying to warn him for weeks, but I fear Max has no idea what is happening today...


Good luck little buddy!
