7/2 two hour cruise on a 58 ft yatch with jg's office
regretfully, the sail was just for looks. we were cruising by motor the entire time. slowly, too. i felt so queasy i couldn't eat a thing. i kept hoping someone would shout "tack!" i think i prefer racing.

dylan the clown
i took this next shot of dylan when i first met him back in january. we were playing cranium and i believe he was impersonating marilyn monroe.
who would ever guess he could be so metro?
immediately after the cruise, jg and i went to meet mae for dinner. she and her family were on their way to san diego. they stopped by sb for the night.
desserts after dinner at longboard's grill
mae was my college classmate. we've known each other for about 15 years but this is the first time i met her husband and children. the girls are terrific little people.

7/4 bbq dinner at scott's
i had been nagging scott to host a bbq ever since i met him. he finally did it for the fourth of july.
the animals at casa scott
i desaturated the image by accident and decided to go with the effect. i like how the colors stay true for both sandbag the cat and emma the ultra marathon mascot.
7/9 a piece of sushi that's very happy to see jg
7/11 attending my colleague sandy's birthday party in solvang
regretfully, i forgot to bring the canon xti with me to the party. that's the only decent shot i got with my lousy phone camera. also regretfully, scott invited us to another bbq dinner but it was on the same day as sandy's party.
7/17 tile shopping as a hobby
7/17 jg learning to work the msr hyperflow...
...so he could put it to use on a back country biking and running trip with scott and gilcrest. that excursion is a post unto itself. i have a back log of activities which i want to blog about. i hope to catch up in august.
last but not least:
7/19 a belated birthday present from st george, utah
