Day 258

In June of 2006 we had a conference for work down in San Francisco.  On the west side of the north end of the Golden Gate Bridge, the National Park Service maintains the last Nike Hercules Battery in the US.  This was my weapons system in the Army, and we weren’t allowed to take photos […]

Day 78

It was with great sadness that today I learned of the passing of my old partner, David Doland. He and I worked together for 22 years conducting background checks for the Department of Defense, and then the whole Government. He always had a wry, acerbic wit that was always good to lighten things up. We […]

Day (190)20

Just for something different, what did I post 10 years ago? I am not sure, and somewhere I lost the first 6 months of this blog. I have a backup (somewhere) and someday I may fix it. So what did I post 9 years ago? It was the middle of a five photo series (that […]

Day 235

I got to drive a fairly new Mercury MKZ to East Glacier today.  It is a very nice car…but with the seat all the way back and down I had one inch of space between the headliner and my head, and I hit the front visor with my forehead…other than that… Well, it took about […]
