Some pics...

I pretty much don't come to Montana except to bring in my mail, water my plants, and play guess what's that in the fridge. So for lack of anything interesting to say, I'll just put up some pictures.



A few volcanoes...




Seattle and most of Elliot Bay.



I was in my parent's garage the day I left. I found this clock on a shelf under some old pictures. It was the clock my grand mother had in her living room for the entire time I knew her. The pendulum in the bottom makes a significant ticking sound and every 15 minutes it chimes out the standard melody for 15 past, 30 past, 45 past and the full hour tune... with clanging for each hour of the day. I have always been a fan of this clock but of course was never aloud to touch it. After about three hours of fiddling with it I got it fully working and up on the wall of the room I used to live in at my folk's house. The clock is now filling the whole upstairs of my parents house ticking and bonging! My dad figures he will wake up in the middle of the night thinking he is still in high school and living at home... I have a feeling that the pendulum on that clock was stopped before the flight attendant gave her shpeal on seat belts and exits.




I took a few other pictures but not many... as it turns out I kept my camera in my pocket most of this trip. I have a picture of a bridge in the rain, some dead pheasants, and a blurry picture of my mother as I was trying to fight fire with fire by taking her picture while she tried to take pictures of me.

OK, my computer is hacking me right now. The pictures that would be interesting to see enlarged are stuck small and you can look at very big picture of a clock...

2 things.

1) It'd be nice if you read and replied to e-mail ever.

2) It'd have been nice to know you were going to be in Seattle more than 0 seconds before you got here!

yes... I was actually surprised to find myself out there also. Actually it is more like the trip snuck up on me. The only reason I remembered that I was going was I looked at the next weeks schedule and I wasn't on there. I was a little pissed and went to talk to the scheduler... he said, "sir, you are on leave next week..." I think I knew academically that you live out there, but I still felt like you lived in Wisconson. Sorry about that man.

It all sort of just runs together after a while.

I was the one who saved the clock from grandmas, it was in a pile of stuff going out to Vinnies before i grabbed it. I think i had the same intent as you, but i was still in school when i grabbed it, so i couldnt do anything with it.
