I finally got back to my MacBook and am able to post a few pictures from the weekend. First, some pics of the new baby and family: It looks like Chelsea had a toddler!

Gorgeous ocean views and lots of food choices. I came down the interstate and turned off where Siri told me. It … Continue reading This Week’s Journey…

Tomorrow (Sunday) morning I head out for a week of training for work. It will be a long drive to get there but the training location is way too far to commute. It is in a great spot and should be fun and interesting. I'll get to see some new friends I made a few … Continue reading June 10, 2017
