First hike of the new year

Last weekend I managed to get the family lost on Tiger Mountain.  I blamed the lack of a good Green Trails map.  But apparently, even official trails are not mapped there.  So we ended up on a gun range instead.  There’s a good story somewhere in there, but I think I’ll just post some pictures instead.

Perhaps my designer target rainboots were not appropriate for an uphill hike?

I know I'm not supposed to climb, but I just can't help it.

I ate my dad's hiking boots and I'm not even sorry.

Seahawks? Not a fan

“No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other…”

-Luke 16:13

I won’t be heartbroken if the Seahawks don’t make it to the Super Bowl. It’s true. Won’t even lose sleep over it.

In fact, February 2 – the date of the Super Bowl – isn’t even the most important footballing date of the month.

The most important date? February 5.

What if they’re all big rocks?

You know what drives me crazy?  Too much I want to do and too little time.  I’m reminded of a conversation that I had recently with someone at work.

Person X:  All right Bill, we’re trying to do some trade offs in the cycle and we’re trying to prioritize Foo or Bar .  Do you think Foo or Bar are important?

Bill: Yes

Person X: …No, which do you want?  Foo or Bar?

Bill: Both

Person X:  But we can’t do both.

Bill:  But you need to do both!

Moving Day

Just a quick comment. I’m moving platforms (and domains) so you may see random old postings appearing. And since I haven’t posted in approximately 9 months, they’re all old postings.

I hope to start catching up quickly with my writing, as I miss it and need to make it a priority. Hopefully, you’ll be putting up with me at least on a weekly basis again.
