In our spare time .....

This year's (actually this decade's) big event was our vacation cruise to Alaska. We traveled at the end of the season, the first week in September. The scenery was awesome and although everyone seemed to be doing Alaska this year, there are a real feeling of peace, isolation, and extreme natural beauty.

Manuel on deck


To be honest - I have no idea where this is - everything looked like this most of the time. Manuel did get tired of the almost constant overcast. This area is a temperate rainforest with over 100 inches of rain per year.

Pet Pic of the Month:


This is Becket and his friend Blacktop. When ever they get a chance they curl up for a nap together. Becket even tries to play with Blacktop and although he can't fetch, he can bat a ball back to Becket, if he is in the mood.


Upcoming events:

Well it is time to go back to work after a really nice holiday. Next week I head to California for a couple days in San Jose. Manuel leaves the following week for New Orleans. He has a conference there and will get a chance to see Armano in addition to earning continuing education units. The only other plans for January (that I know of so far) is collecting information for the IRS. It takes about two months to find and organize everything - especially since we both try to avoid it as long as possible.
