Cleaning out the basement

| | Comments (6)


I spent the weekend cleaning boxes of my old crap out of the basement, then putting them in my home office (pictured). It may look like a garage, but now that it's full of piles of ATM receipts from 1998, it's an OFFICE.

I found a bunch of great crap to sell on eBay. Coming soon: watch me sell things I got for free to suckers on eBay.

Yellow Flowers in Sequium

| | Comments (5)


This is a macro photo of some yellow flowers in Sequim, Washington, at the site of Mary's grandparents' dairy farm. It's now an herb farm with an angry cat who doesn't like petting. We went to Sequim (Mary's familial source) the weekend before the wedding, for a third memorial to Don Wheeler, and a memorial for another relative whose name escapes me.

Update: the wedding went beautifully; photos coming soon.
