Google Earth

| February 25, 2009

So, I was looking up some directions from my home to another location and began fooling around with Google Maps and Earth… just poking around my neighborhood and to my amazement found a shot of Sarah and me riding our bikes.  This is actually us caught on Google Earth… sort of like Bigfoot.  We can be tracked […]

New painting

| February 25, 2009

A new piece from the imagination of Sarah.

All I want for Christmas…

| February 25, 2009

This past summer Sarah lost all 4 of her bottom teeth but her top teeth have been hanging on for dear life.  Today she had a dentist appointment and he suggested removing them.  So, in no time she’s back to being toothless and looking just like the folks back home.

Heart Pizza

| February 25, 2009

Sarah sees hearts everywhere.  Clouds, leaves, stones… potato chips all become hearts in her eyes.  Sunday we made pizzas.

Fly Tying Dad

I’ve been tying alot lately hoping to fill my boxes with anything I might need through this next season.  A couple of photos Sarah took with my camera.  I think she’s got a pretty good eye.

Painting a box

| February 23, 2009

After replacing our pool pump I saved the box which it arrived in for Sarah to play with.  After a couple of days playing with it in everyway possible we decided it could be a lot more fun if we were to paint it.  So, out came the paint and in no time we had […]

Fly Tying Bench

| February 23, 2009

Fly Tying Bench: I have been spending a great deal of time at the bench lately tying flies.  My bench is right behind our couch and quite central in our living room.  It’s crowded and cluttered and I’ve been wanting to improve upon it for a long time.  Last week I finally went out in […]

The “Talking Stick” Re-post

| February 22, 2009

I made a post about our Talking Stick last year but something made me think about it further and I decided to re-post and expand on this idea in greater detail.  The idea of a “Talking Stick” is something I’ve been using in my team building facilitation for years.  I use the concept to process a […]

Pickin’ and Grinin’

| February 21, 2009

So, Sarah recieve a really nice guitar for Christmas this year and while I’m sort of a mediocre musician I have been trying to teach her how to play.  She doesn’t like to practice very much at this stage because it hurts her fingers; but I think as she gets a little better more inspiration might follow.  So, […]

New Blog is finally up and running.

| February 6, 2009

Welcome to my new blog!  I think I have finally ironed out all the bugs of this thing and can get moving forward again.  As you might have noticed I stalled out trying to migrate it to my website and except for a few feeble attempts at renewal pretty much let it sit idle for far […]
