This year during Supercomputing in Salt Lake City it decided to snow on our last day there. Morgen and Nora decided to wander out and do some adventuring. I really like this picture of them.
Here we are at the Seattle Pride Festival enjoying a Drag Queen show. It was a blast.
We had a family day not to long ago and Nora, Morgen, and I went and checked out the Solar Tower. Pretty interesting. They use molten salt to transfer and store the energy.
Here we are reflected in one of the many many mirrors.
A month or so ago one of the contractors working on the bathroom started hollering at me from the front yard. Seems we had a 3-4ft Bull snake heading for the open front door. I ended up chasing him across the parking area to where the gophers live. Hopefully it’ll stay over there and help with the gopher issues.
Took a couple of hours three weeks ago to knock down the front area, then another two hours today to redo the front and add the whole side section. A lot of mowing was done to reclaim a piece of the property. We’re on 4.7 acres here.
The new cleared area.
The area I removed after reclaiming a couple of weeks ago.
I didn’t realize that I have never put up any pictures of the Balloon Festival we have every October here in Albuquerque.
Just to give a person a taste, here is one of the pictures I took right after we moved here. And this is just one wave. They have to send up the balloons in waves to give them enough space.
I thought I would put up a couple of pictures overlooking Tijeras from the house. Living up in the mountains is a lot different than city living.
