us and the mikes

good guys those mikes.  This was a while ago.
they were pretty gracious but we were so pumped up.  I probably gave out 200 high fives after the game.  That the Blazers barely won.  Against Utah.  At home.  "A win's a win" was my rallying cry.

Also looking at these now I know next time we gotta get out there and shoot some free-throws!


seattle sojourn

this was my view from my desk in Seattle.  They were like "yeah try to get one thing done good luck."  Ferries kept coming and going.  I love that city so much.  It's so much more rooted in NW iconography (think American Indian and sea life) than home.  They have a real identity there.  I saw a building with walrus gargoyles.  It was the headquarters of the Arctic Club.  Lots of notable architecture.  Took a walk through the new library.  It is world-class cool.

walking around at night.  Had dinner with Gilbert and 2nd dinner with Brady and Kiana.
Good times were flowing
View out the hotel window.  I hadn't yet learned a focusing feature on my new camera.  So this is the window of the hotel.  It was see-through.

good place to take pictures, the zoo.  Ask any geek.



some funny stuff going on on the banks of the Willamette in Portland.  People are living in boats anchored long term and they're making weird organizations on the rocky beaches.

dfw again

only way in or out of that place!
I found a good spot with Lone Stars on offer.  Had a seat and watched the people pass by.

I have infiltrated the capitalist mainframe

from a training week in Texas.  It was like a hotel with lots of classrooms.  And probably the best buffet I've ever seen.  The bathroom was nice you can see but the shower water smelled really gross, which killed any enjoyment one could wring out of a hotel shower.
