Traveling man

Photo is of the mountains west of our house in light from the sunrise.

Today we are headed over the hump to Las Vegas to see our daughter. She has been traveling a lot lately so we thought it would be easier on her if we came to her place. We'll just have a couple glasses of wine and dinner then come home. Nice low-key visit.

Got the blinds put up yesterday; today my wife is online ordering more! No good deed goes unpunished I guess. She helped me put the largest one up; it's over six feet long (nearly two meters). Now she is going to be telling her entire family how SHE put the blinds up. I know how this woman operates. Her family thinks I can't tell one end of a screwdriver from the other. How I come to have all those tools must be a mystery to them.

I just looked at that photo I have on the blog and figured out that it was taken in Nice, France ten years ago in May. Wow, does time fly when you are having fun. I'll see if I can't find another. Haven't changed much though; weigh about ten pounds more (four kilos) and grayer. Imagine that! Still drink wine. I am usually behind the camera; maybe I'll talk the kid into taking a couple for us.

Gotta go. Take care, it's dangerous out there.

A wise man lets his wife take the credit.

Grey hair and wine? That's fine by me.

Just realised that my photo is from five years ago, on the Ghan, for my 50th.

The Ghan is the train that runs N-S through the middle of Australia.

Did you get a good deal on the Foreclosed property?

Hey, you're a Braja fan too? That insane woman actually emailed me from her hospital bed. Crazy woman.

Not a bad sight to wake up to! We have stayed in Parump a few times and enjoyed it! (even though I don't think I can spell it).

Nice spot.
