Back in the mitten again. Back to normalcy, whatever that means.
Back to work, and Penny, and band practice/shows.
[Speaking of which, Old Empire @ Skippers in Hamtramck on Friday. Metro Times Blowout gig]
On Tuesday, Julie got a new car. A big black '02 Blazer to own the road in. Very nice automobile. Picked it up for just under 4 grand. She took out a small loan to pay for it, and is making payments to the bank with a decent rate. I'm very happy to have that whole car fiasco out of the way.
Had to update my Windows 7 because I was using an evaluation copy. Somehow I lost a lot of the programs I had installed on my laptop over the last 6 months. Well, they're not lost, but I'll have to reinstall all of them soon. It's been quite the pain in the ass. But it's nice to have a clean start. I can now figure out what things I liked/needed and what things I didn't/don't need at all.
I made this as our new desktop background.
I also submitted some more writing to different online sources. Crossing my fingers about that but not holding my breath.
For anyone who is interested, I post pieces of creative writing here:
I miss the warmth of FL.
A few more pictures from our trip:
Normal picture hot spot at the Fort.
Tourists in Orlando.
Unsure of something [most likely our sobriety] in Ybor.
Feeding birds was a bad idea near Gulf of Mexico.
I'm excited for spring. I heard some bird doing it in the back yard today. I stood in the sun for quite a while, just taking it in. Penny ate some poop, and I yelled at her and threw her Frisbee across the yard/
That is all for now.
