A few more spring flowers

Earlier in the month we “celebrated” Safety Week at work. I actually attended a Forklift Rodeo. Really. This reminded me of a really dirty story a friend told me about a lonely cowboy and a horse that he was supposed to use to ride into town. It was timely. The forklifts were making baskets with a basketball, carrying water around … Continue Reading →

18th century tea

There might have been more champagne than tea…


Apparently I did see the Swift satellite before it launched! I’d forgotten. We all look so young. 2004. Brendan, me, Steve, and Meredith.

T-club, goofy hat day

Friends from work. This must be ’99 or 2000?

Cicada invasion

I found these pics that Mike A took of the “Great Cicada Invasion” of 2004. That was such a crazy experience!

Another old photo – Halloween

I don’t even know what year this is! ’98? Me and Carlos… He’s the one that taught me to play guitar, actually!

Blast from the past

Here’s a pic from the 1997 AAS meeting!
