  2. Road Map for the Day - February 10, 2011

    by , 02-10-2011 at 11:11 AM
    Just got back from Tennessee this morning, so I am still a little jet-lagged. This morning's agenda includes checking on all the critters, to make sure they survived me being gone, feeding breakfast to everyone, then getting showered and getting to work. I have to write up reports on what I did all week, then lunch plans with my sister. I am taking a half day off from work to spend time with her, so we will probably go the her favourite place (The Body Shop), but I am also going to try to hit ...

  3. A week on the ranch (January 31 - February 6, 2011)

    by , 02-06-2011 at 09:00 PM
    I'll have to keep this entry short because I'm on the road and typing on my iPhone.

    This week marked the end of January. Always sad to see the months slip away from me. I did review my resolutions at the end of the month, and I am staying relatively true to them.

    The weather was beautiful all week and promised to remain so into the coming week. I left for Memphis, TN, on Saturday, by way of an overnight in Phoenix, AZ, so I didn't get to enjoy the weekend, but when I ...

  5. Road Map for the Day - February 5, 2011

    by , 02-05-2011 at 09:40 AM
    Off to Tennessee today, so this morning will be all about getting packed and getting the animals squared away before I go. After that, I'm leaving on a jet plane, and the rest of the day will be spent either in the air, or driving, then check into my hotel and get my notes ready for work tomorrow.

    5:30p - The best-laid plans and all that. Stuck in AZ tonight due to a screw-up on U.S. Airway's part. Back in the air tomorrow morning!
