Another January Baby

Today is my 29th birthday.  I would like to say that means I am old, but there are some things in life I have yet to experience:


  • Children
  • Visiting a country where English is not the first language
  • Owning a boat
  • Selling a home for a newer, bigger one
  • Having a successful business (or the alternative - having a business that fails)
  • Many other things I can't think of now


So here I am, a little older, mayhap a little wiser, and definitely ready for everything new life may throw at me over the coming year.  Last year had a lot going on with  two months of military training, going to Vegas for the first time (and then again for DevConnections), seeing Graceland and the St. Louis Arch, being promoted to First Lieutenant, being in a flood, and seeing two winter storms up close. 


Changing out my butter bars for something a little more substantial.


The Bellagio Hotel inside was very exquisite as well.











This is in Independence, KS, on July 1st. Yes, that water is up to the bottom of those railroad track signals.  In this area there were two story homes entirely under water.  We made it out of town with minutes to spare before every exit was flooded.


This is in Topeka, KS, during the first winter storm.  This is the ice storm that happened in Oklahoma, Missouri and Kansas in December.  You can see the toll it is having on some of the trees.


Actually this year was a little slower than last year when I got married, went to the Bahamas, bought a house, attended like six other weddings, adopted a wonderful new pet, and attended military training in three states over a total of nearly five months (away from my new wife).


I am excited to see what will happen over the year of 2008. :D
