The Q4 and end of FY whirlwind tours are completed, and I'm taking some time with the family at home. I thought it would also be a good time to catch up on the pile of pictures that are stacking up in my mobile phone, and write some blahg fodder. The first few entries will be home and travelogue, but I hope to get some more techie/geeky stuff up as well and get that off of my plate.
Mr. Cole has decided on two careers. Professional bowler (he is a natural lefty), and race car driver. He insists on wearing a helmet, and "eye protection" when driving his new race car around the driveway. Unfortunately, he drives in circles, so it looks like NASCAR might be the career choice. I'll keep working on the "road courses" and open wheel configurations though:
Cole explains the important aerodynamic features of the rear spoiler.
Cole also found an old telephone in the garage, and was fascinated with the "old school" rotary dial. He spent about an hour "talking to Nanny".
Shelby and I spent some time out shopping while I was home. We got all the goodies for soccer camp, and took a little break on the silly little rides at the mall. While she enjoyed the "NASCAR Experience", it was the simple horse ride that really lit her up. This one cost me a whole dollar, 25 cents at a time.
It was about five days at home, and then back on the road. I have been through China, India, and Mexico since my last blahg entry. Pictures of those excursions coming soon.
