So I'm back from the basement and it's time to get back to normal life. Which, it just so happens, includes writing blog posts. I'm going to start off with a little travelogue. (Just a few pictures from my past week.) Then tomorrow, your regularly scheduled best web junk, and next week it's back to normal blogging. I had an 8 day vacation . I went back home to visit my family.
Which included my new nephew that I had never seen before. he had a bit of a rough time coming into the world and was not allowed to see his momma for the first few days. But he is clearly doing very well now. This is not a fake picture, this is Jake Johnson my nephew. he really looks like a cabbage patch doll. Also I'm sporting the half-face tan and looking oddly bald. (I'm puffing out my cheeks to look like him.)
I also went to the eye doctor as I always do during my summer visit home.
Here you can see me all google-eyed. Freshly dilated with virtually no blue part left.
Then I went to Mexico to visit my good friends Brent & Amanda Highfil. Here's a pic of their two oldest children Luke & Noah. We played Rock Band on the Wii Friday night with Keaton & Ali Shewcraft. It was really fun.
I also got to go fishing twice. once on Barkley with my dad. We caught 6 bass fishing a Carolina rig on main lake flats. (pretty descriptive huh) and once at a family get-together. We were at this lovely private lake.
I caught about 6 bass and a few of these very hungry catfish. The other guy is my uncle.
I had a good time, glad to be back in Fayetteville and I have plenty to do for the next few months.
