Beam me up

Stardate: 04162010, 1522 hours Pacific Time
Captains log:

The USS Mazda 6 was traveling at just below warp speed on I-90, a few miles from Coeur d'Alene, ID. The first mate noticed an anomaly in the space time continuum and attempted to photograph it.

Because the crew was traveling in cognito so as not to unnerve the natives of this primitive planet, the only photographic equipment available was a cell phone with a .2 gigabyte camera.

The image, and other pertinent data was transmitted to the Star Fleet Commander who will analyze it to determine if the planet Earth is undergoing rapid global warming or just enjoying a beautiful spring day.

Stay tuned for updates.

It's been a year...

...since daddy died, and still not a day goes by that I don't think of him and miss him. Sometimes it doesn't seem real, and part of that might be because I moved away not long after he passed, but it might be a bit of denial on my part as well.

I know I haven't kept in touch very well; I haven't had a lot of time to blog or email, or do much of anything but work. I guess that is what I do when I don't know what else to do...I work.

Most weeks I put in 55-60 hours, some a little more, a few a little less. I walk quite a bit, dote on my cat and of course enjoy the company of my friends and loved ones here in Idaho.

I still have my Montana phone number, but I did finally step up and get a local plate for my car (at the urging of a policeman who stopped me to tell me I was traveling a wee bit too fast).

I guess now I can truly say...
