one day i'm going to do a triathlon... i can do one out of the 3 events, so i should be good to go, right? lol

i think i'd collapse after the swimming portion. and again after the bicycling.

car show

i really liked the paint job on this car at the jubilee car show... depending on what direction you looked at it, it changed colors from purple to green-blue  =)

as a kid, i liked to ride all the rides at the carnival. any carnival. no matter if it's mobile and set up in a grocery store parking lot. nowadays, not so much. i'd rather watch =)

always want to look our best when the camera comes in close =) and the texas bluebonnet looks just as good closeup as it does driving past patches of it on the side of the road.

a year ago

so many things change in a year... some good, some bad.  i've had my share of bad this year.

today's photo is a year ago - 4-11-11... when a tornado or 'straight line wind' hit the airport north of town.

i got signed up for my first mud race too -- kind of like a warrior dash -- 5k thru an obstacle course =)  it's in june in terrell!

looks like i missed a day... again... i'll blame it on the plumber. i spent most of friday waiting for the plumber to fix a leak in the back yard, but all is well now!

today's photo was provided by jim over at terrell daily photo - it's me working my required volunteer duties during the Tal Morrison 5k and 15k at White Rock Lake this morning. the weather was perfect! wish i'd been running, but it was also neat to see what goes on behind the scenes in planning and conducting a race too!
