Image for 3/24/11 - More Empty Coal Ships

Lately there has been a constant collection of empty coal ships waiting to get into port, sometimes as many as fifteen. I wonder what the crews do while they have to wait. Janet and I took a walk on Christmas Eve and saw the ships and I envisioned that the crew would have some tiny, artificial tree with make-shift ornaments and maybe a little egg nod. If they were lucky, the old, chubby cook would dress up as Santa and hand out a few candy bars as gifts. I bet they are mostly just bored watching TV.

I love those attractor balloon people things. They need to develop some artificial intelligence and overthrow their human masters. Of course all we'd have to do to defeat them is turn-off their fans.

Guess what this is? It is a tile bathroom floor from the building I work in. Reminded me of the first video game graphics, 8-bit style.

Ten Years Ago Today...

Janet and I took that walk. We were married on a beach in Freeport, Bahamas. It was a very casual ceremony with just a few close friends. 

I think of that day often, how we chose each other. It's been the best ten years of my life.

I wish the same good love and happiness for all my friends.

Image for 3/20/11 - The Hiking Report

I upped my hiking goal for 2011 from 650 to 700 miles. So far, I am keeping up with the extra miles. Today I did a six mile hike with my backpack on (about 17 pounds in the pack). I have a big hike coming up in May and will have to carry the pack, so training time. It felt good to get the carry the weight, could feel different muscle groups getting some heat. We'll see how I'm feeling in the morning. I've hit 166 miles for the year thus far, only 534 to go.

Image for 3/19/11 - Spring Forward!

Ah. spring is in the air. I did a seven mile hike today and the weather was perfect. Sunny and about sixty-two degrees. I felt pretty good, even did a bit of jogging. I love Saturdays.
