Hoagie Spread

Hoagie Spread

Today, Chad brought me a little gift of hot sauce. Actually, it’s not really hot sauce, nor is it salsa. I guess, as the name implies, it’s hot spread. I tried it with some hot dogs and chips for dinner. It’s quite spicy, with the right amount of tanginess. Apparently, you can only get this… Read more »

Rio Red

Rio Red

I was never given my own stapler at my job. Whenever I’ve needed to staple something, I have to go borrow someone else’s. All the staplers I’ve used have been severely impaired, crimping the staples through the paper uneasily, and sometimes not even making it through all the sheets. We’re talking 3 sheets or less… Read more »

The Ballad of Pete Rose

The Ballad of Pete Rose

Today we went to check out the Caesar’s Palace and New York, New York. As we walked through the forum shops of Caesar’s, we passed a sports shop where a few of the workers were standing outside, practically begging us to come in and get our picture taken with the baseball legend and have him… Read more »

Canyon’s Gate

Canyon’s Gate

This is the guardrail for the Grand Canyon, which is a great experience. We took a 14 hour trip, which pretty much killed the entire day. I don’t regret going, but I do wish we had had more time in Vegas. The drive time to canyon, at least via Greyhound-type transportation, is around 5 hours…. Read more »

The Tower of Flower Power

The Tower of Flower Power

I believe this was under the entrance canopy of the Mirage hotel in Vegas. I took lots of pictures of the town, but refrained from posting a more obvious picture of Vegas because of something my black and white photography teacher once told me. One of our photo projects was to go to a certain… Read more »

Mother’s Hands

Mother’s Hands

I’m usually not a big fan of pictures of someone’s hands, and I’m not even sure if this would classify as a legitimate “hand picture,” but I thought this was a rather cool picture. It was taken on the plane trip to Las Vegas, during the brief period when people were allowed out of their… Read more »

My Bags Are Packed…

My Bags Are Packed…

We’re all packed for Vegas! And no, those aren’t my heels in the suitcase. My wife is just preparing for a night out on the town. They’re actually for the birthday party, which is our real purpose for going to Vegas in the first place. We’re gonna get to see a lady jump out of… Read more »

Half Mast

Half Mast

Bush has declared today as the National Day of Mourning for former President Gerald Ford. I really need to study up on my Presidents, because I honestly couldn’t tell you when Ford served. Maybe I’ll make that one of my resolutions for the year, but don’t count on it. This picture comes only days after… Read more »

NYE: Preparations

NYE: Preparations

For New Year’s Eve, we started off at Jonathan’s for a little pre-Eve partying, then we ended up back at our house for some games and more food/drinks. This is a shot of Traci getting some champagne ready for us.
