Here I am in Minneapolis on a 4 hour layover. Heading back to Iowa. I could actually drive from here and make it back sooner. Its not too bad though. It actually goes pretty quick. Kinda looking forward to getting home. Its the whole “work” thing that gives it that “kinda” tag. Really looking forward to seeing the fam and the pets again. Had a great trip in NM. Weird seeing it after all this time. But anyways, it will feel good to be home. Got a short work week this week. And a short work week next week due to Labor day. Life is good.

Green Chile

Many do not know what this is. But if you are from New Mexico, you know exactly what it is. Yup. Green Chile. So so good. It really is a shame I cannot get this anywhere in Iowa. I am currently trying to figure out how to smuggle this back to Iowa with me.

Ask and you shall receive

Woa. What an awesome day. In the 70′s and low humidity. Feels great. Probably just a fluke though. We are, in fact, still in August. For now though, I will enjoy it while it lasts.

The Heat Is On!

No. I won’t do it. I won’t complain about this tropical heat and humidity. I will not complain that I sweat bullets after 5 minutes of being outside. I won’t complain that I am sweating right out of the shower. It was me, yes me, that was praying for this type of weather in the freezing cold winter. So I just need to deal with it. Spring and Fall are my friends. Summer is a bully. But one I can deal with. Winter is just plain evil. So here I am saying, hey summer, you may be unpleasant, but I can deal with you.

Washington Island

Here is a place I have never been to and didn’t know existed. It is an island just north of the door peninsula of Wisconsin. The ferry ride to it was cool. Other than that, it was uneventful. Stay tuned through out the month for more pics from our Wisconsin vacation.

Well. Here we are. Finally back from our trip to Wisconsin. We went to Sturgeon bay in Door county. Very cool area. We stayed at a campground called Harbour Village Resort that was fun. More aimed at kids but still good for adults too. Weather was nice. Had a nice thunderstorm the last night we were there. Took a boat tour of green bay and lake Michigan. Also took a ferry to Washington island which was ok. The island was nothing special. The ferry ride was the best part. They are big on cherries there. Not sure if ot has something to do with George Washington. All in all, had a good time. Now back to the grind.

Lake Michigan

First time trip to one of the great lakes. Lake Michigan. Very cool. Had a great time. Its pretty much like visiting the ocean. The lake is so big, you can’t see the other side.
