A little hiatus

A little hiatus

I started this post right before Halloween but it looks like I never finished it.  So hey! I was gonna do a tiny hiatus 🙂 Hiatus is over! In quick summary of the last two months: – We moved to San Diego. .. Oh I guess that’s it.  I gotta tell ya doing Christmas at …

Where in the world is Mike?

Where in the world is Mike?

Well I’m in San Francisco, obviously.   Or perhaps not so obviously?  We travel around a lot so it can be hard to say where we are on any given Sunday.  Today though?  I’m sitting at my desk, Cat firmly ensconced in my lap with a stunning view of our high rise neighborhood behind my …

Why do I take so many damn pictures?

Why do I take so many damn pictures?

Good question! Glad no one asked. It’s definitely not to make money.

Dude where’s my truck?

Whoops

As I sit here in a dark empty apartment I find myself wishing that I had more lead time on the move. It retrospect, it probably woulda been better to pack/ship everything a week early and meet it here instead of being here a week before my stuff. Oh well. It’s pretty much camping with …
