Six years ago we were in Seoul, it’s a great city.
We went for a hike Sunday morning and there was a car graveyard on the trail.
Last week I did a girl dad post as I looked ahead to my daughter and youngest moving away. This week is a father and son post.
For wordless(kind of) Wednesday, my photos of meeting famous people.
I just deleted another post about how much I dread clocking into work on Monday morning and how the sadness starts on Sunday night as I realize my weekend is over. I deleted it because I have decided to stop talking about it. It is clear that nothing will change and whining about it here doesn’t help. Instead, enjoy some of my photos that make me happy.
In which I look to see what I did that was noteworthy in the past year.
We went to Orlando in January since both kids were free. We went to Harry Potter World for the first time and also visited Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom and Hollywood Studios.
I turned 50 in February. We went to DC to have lunch at Old Ebbitt Grill since I have wanted to go there for years and had never gone. It was worth the trip.
I will call May spring otherwise I won’t have much to say besides celebrating my daughter’s birthday in March,
In May I attended the Maryland/Delaware Library Association Conference where my pub quiz team won first place. I did not really contribute at all.
At the end of May I traveled with my wife to her conference in Baku. I loved the city. More people should visit. It is a nice place and is not overwhelmed with tourists yet.
We also did a 24 hour layover in Istanbul and toured the city.
In June I went to the American Library Association conference in DC where I met Henry Winkler.
I also went to another Bowling for Soup concert
We went to Kentucky to visit family and went kayaking
Not much notable for fall. My daughter went back to school so we were empty nesters again. I went to Kentucky over Veteran’s Day weekend to visit my brother and his family. My sister also visited one day and then I had lunch with her in my hometown. I went to multiple middle school basketball games to watch my niece play, went bowling and just had a nice relaxing weekend.
Trudging my way through December now. Only 4 more days of work after today and I head to Kentucky for a nice long break.
Ok. There will be some words. We leave Friday to visit family in Kentucky. I was looking for pictures from previous trips and these were the only two I had in my “already posted to WordPress photos. Facebook photos aren’t working and I don’t have time to go through my phone.
Photo 1 is when we got an arrow stuck in the tree and we were all trying to figure out how to get it down. My brother apparently planned to throw another arrow at it.
Photo 2 seems self explanatory. Just me about to shoot.
If you are friends with the real me on Facebook or Instagram you’ve already seen these and you can go about your life.
Until last night I had not done anything even remotely Christmas. I haven’t watched a Christmas movie. I haven’t really gone out shopping. I had only seen Christmas lights if I drove past them on the way home from work. I’ve really gone nowhere but work since thanksgiving.
Finally, last night, we went to Zoo Lights at the National Zoo in DC. Once we finally got there and I got over some issues with parking, I really enjoyed it. I needed a break in the routine and some Christmas spirit. Here are some pictures I took.
