My Mangy Mug Shot

This picture is here so that I can add it to my profile. I took a couple pictures and I guess this was the best one. So now when I comment on other peoples blogs, you can picture my smiling mug delivering those comments from my own mouth. Unless of course I'm hurling insults and criticisms at you, in which case your have to just imagine what my face might look like then.

Beach Buds

Max and I were standing on this NW Washington beach with a world of possibilities expanding in all directions around us. Which of those possibilities will we reach out for, grasp onto and clutch to our chests? Which ones will slip through our fingers? Which ones will we never even know were there? Max and I both have a lot of living to do!

The wimpy little waves were rolling in off of the straits of Juan de Fuca and I was just glad that I have such a wonderful family. My predecessors, my contemporaries and my progeny are all just about the greatest people I can imagine. I am a product of those spectacular people more than I am a creation of my own making. I hope I am an end product that is worth something. I guess I convinced my wife that it had some pretty good value. I hope she doesn't feel ripped off.

Anyway, I pledge to be more active on the blogs....
