We were strolling down a busy shopping street in the middle of a weekday, and suddenly there was a wedding party all around us. I think there was some sort of city hall annex nearby. Montevideo, Uruguay. October 2017.

Early morning clouds to the east of the valley made for some nice sunrises this weekend. This one is from our Saturday hike in the Phoenix Mountains Preserve. 🌡 @kathryn

Now that the weather is getting nicer here in Phoenix, I decided to push back my workday schedule by an hour so I could do some hiking in the mornings.

The cat is recently having trouble seeing. To keep her from using the stairs, my wife bought a doggie gate to put at the bottom of the stairwell. I said the gate wouldn't work because the cat could simply jump over it, but for over a week I've been wrong. However, a few minutes ago I heard a loud thud in the stairwell, after which I watched the cat dart past the office and into the upstairs bedroom.

The deep-fried Oreos at the snack bar inside the Mermaids casino used to make for an unhealthy but tasty treat when visiting Fremont Street in Las Vegas. Sadly, the casino shut down just a few weeks after @kathryn and I shared this order. June 2016. πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡²

While planning a trip to attend a wedding on the Hawaiian island of Kauai, my wife proposed we see the Na Pali Coast during our stay. She suggested we could visit by helicopter or by sailboat. I said a helicopter sounded like a lot of fun. Apparently I had only been offered the illusion of choice, and I spent six hours trying not to vomit. 🀒 July 2012.
