Hanging out in Taos, NM

Posted by: Dave In: New Mexico|Travel|Vacation

We’ve headed south for the weekend to Taos, NM.  Having fun walking around the old pueblo.  Google maps said it would take us 5 and a half hours to get here. I did it in 4. – Dave

Still in Des Moines

Posted by: Dave In: Travel|Vacation

Hey kiddos, Justine and I are still in Des Moines. We’re enjoying the quiet streets and the chilly temperatures of Iowa’s bustling metropolis. I hope you had a good Thanksgiving and have recovered from the tryptophan coma. Did you know cheddar cheese has more tryptophan than turkey? Catch you on the flip side, daddy-oh. -Dave

Happy 4th of July

Posted by: Dave In: Misc|Vacation

In order of importance… 1. Day off of work. 2. BBQ with friends. 3. Beer 4. Laughing at the silly British red-coats in 1776 who thought they could defeat a bunch of scruffy coonskin-cap-wearing hillbillies. Little did they know, our hillbillies are particularly stubborn. (Just like the one running our country.) -Dave

Happy Thanksgiving everyone

Posted by: Dave In: Family|Vacation

The hillbillies on board looked pretty green around the […]

  • Scott: There's a roleplaying scenario just waiting to be written based on these pictures. :-)
