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

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.

One good meal (and several glasses of wine later) we are home safe and sound. We will be picking up Queenie tomorrow; so the Above the Aether grotto […]

Galveston Island

Posted by: davidherrold In: Mobile|Texas|Travel|Vacation

It’s funny. As soon as I cross the bridge from mainland Texas to Galveston Island I start to immediately relax. The people here have two pairs of flip-flops…one casual and one formal. I like it here. The picture above is from our hotel window. – Dave


  • Dave: Not sure, Bryan, but I'd love to know where Craig lives.
  • Bryan Hanks: What city were those in?
  • Kevin David Anderson: check out our other wreaths at: http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10150452725264516.391111.360128594515&type=3
  • epiphenita: Like Tom Waits without the music.
  • epiphenita: Reminds me of my good friend's artwork: http://victoriacarlson.blogspot.com/2009/06/untitled.html
  • Dave: I think someone should make some dance music from those "WHOAHs."
  • epiphenita: Oh, Dave. That was tonic to my soul. Perfect. I vote for an exorcism.
  • Dave: Hmm, looks sober to me.
  • Scott: I'm thinking that the guy with the hat might have had a drink or two before this picture was taken. Just a hunch...
  • Scott: There's a roleplaying scenario just waiting to be written based on these pictures. :-)
