I was offered a full time spot at the wood shop. I accepted.


Hello FredS
What's your position title? Stump 2? Woody McWoodson? No. No. No. Yer mont972x4 aren't you?

Sellout.
They call me...Tim.








Which is odd since my name isn’t Tim.

We played bingo tonight. First time I've been to a bingo hall in 35, or so, years. A lot has changed.

Made a day trip to Galveston, TX today so my daughter could play in the surf. The architecture in old downtown was outstanding. The traffic through Houston was not outstanding. I blaim Jim and his fellow bingo hooligans.

Made it home from Santa Fe without incident, yesterday.
Enjoyed the company of some former students yesterday and this morning.

It showed about 6” overnight and is still snowing hard.

Former students are driving home today in a major snowstorm. We told them to turn around and come back if it is too dangerous to drive.

This might be a winter that eases our drought. It’s certainly starting out that way!

We left Vail at 5:00 AM and got home last night at 10:30 PM.
There was a big detour due to a pileup at Prim, on the 15 near the CA/ NV border S of Las Vegas.
I got to cruise through some beautiful stretches of desert with the windows down and enjoying the fragrant desert air in a light rain.
I am tired.

Just got home from a south Texas bird hunt. The weekend of 12s - room 12, table 12, $12 cfs dinners, bagged 12 birds, and filled up at pump 12 on the way home, on the 12th day of Christmas. My buddy and I both bought a lotto ticket.

Yep. We were thinking each ticket has 6 numbers so that's 12 numbers, and we selected 12 as the power ball. (This is all certainly of God, right? Yeah, that's what we're thinking.)

No, we were both shooting 20 gauges. You're getting off track, here. But, they both had two barrels, so each held 2 shells. So, 20+20+2+2+2+2=48, which is divisible by 12. Now we're getting back to the lotto ticket.

Is that dominoes? We play 42 in Texas. But not this weekend. Btw, total miles walked, per our fitbit was 12.
