Gorgeous evening, glad to be home

Just getting home from the ride from Michigan and I am completely exhausted and missing E. Soon back to the regularly scheduled workweek.

On the Amtrak

I haven’t been on Amtrak in a long time and I have to say I miss it
terribly. I have been traveling so much by car lately — it’s nice to
sit, relax, nap, eat, compute… all without much effort.

Now THAT’s a hybrid!

Only in Michigan would you see a guy who has converted his motorcycle
to a four-wheeler by way of car axles. We’re zooming along on I-75 and
he has NO HELMET!

Tasha in the truck

Tasha’s the sweetest! I didn’t get to spend a lot of time with her
this weekend, so I thought it would be fun to take her to my sisters’.
However, she doesn’t like dad’s “new” truck. She prefers the old one
with a bench seat.

Shopping with Mom @ Home Depot

We are on our way to my sister’s house to do some lawncare. We are at
Home Depot, however, and mom’s on the hunt for radicchio.

Ford LTD Wagon — Wooooof!

Only in Detroit would I see this car. I believe it’s a Ford LTD. I
cannot believe how large it is! But it’s fun to see these beasts still

Oh no!

After the amazing surprise party, we headed to bed only to find this
between our sheets. It’s… Creepy!

Happy Birthday E!

Happy birthday to my lovely E. We had a marvelous meal at Rootstock.
We’re just finishing up the “dessert” course.

KCMO: They Might Be Giants!

As part of the Jiggle Jam, an obvious event for children, the adult
“kids” get to have their fun too with They Might Be Giants. They’re
writing children’s’ music now. Award-winning children’s music.

Pit Stop in St Louis

We are in St Louis and I unfortunately had to check my e-mail really
quick. It was a false alarm, but I got a delicious smoothie anyway.
