LOMAH - Land of Milk and Honey

Just living life here in the Promised Land, Southern Alberta. Where the Mountains meet the prairie in a stunning sunset, surrounded in fields of gold

Kayking - S Bend

An old picture, surfing the S Bend on the Red Deer River with Denali keeping a watchful eye. It was a perfect day, surrounded by perfect friends.

Family in Waterton

A summer hike with the family and Grandparents. It was a typical Waterton day with some wind and sun. Logan hiked the whole way in to Bertha Falls

Loves of my Life

The first two loves of my life together in one picture. I remember when they came into my life, making me whole.

Me in the Broken Group

I think this is my favourite picture from last year. We did a sea kayaking trip to the Broken Group and had 4 glorious days of sun. It was a capped off with the company of great friends.

Christmas Tree

Last weekend we went out to get our tree.  It's been a bear with regards to temperature and the -30 and lower temperatures have kept us inside for far too long.  I had to cancel the father/son ski trip that my cousin was preparing due to the cold.

So with the wind a blowin' we headed west to find a lull in the storm.  We found moderate temperatures and no wind around the Beaver Mines area.  With a sweet hill and a close trees we quickly cut down our tree and spent the rest of the time tobogganing.  We even helped a guy get his truck out of the ditch, dealt with a bloody nose and found beverage and sushi.  Quite a day!

Digging Out

Well, after a good dump of snow and a little help from my neighbor and is Kuboto, we managed to dig out on Tuesday.  Today, we dug in and had a little fun.

Why Men make sense.

Well at least for me.

After what we decided was about 3 years, I had a lengthy talk with Mike Orr.  For about an hour.  Haven't talked in 3 years and I pick up the phone for an enjoyable conversation about here, there, what's new and what's coming.  I like that about Men.  Easy.

If you don't know, you can catch up with him at OceanCowboy.  He's doing great, and full of plans within plans.  You know, a Canadian version of Inception.

It was fun talking about old times, so I thought I would bring it back... old school.

That fish was good.

Waterton. The changing Landscape

We were lucky enough to get out to Waterton this past weekend.  It was exciting because they just reopened Cameron Lake Road.  We were excited to get out, but equally excited to see what had changed with the flooding.  Not to be disappointed, there were some obvious changes.

I never noticed this flow before.  Now... you can't miss it.

Some spots were more dramatic than other, but you could definitely see the differences.  The last pictures are around Lineham and the berm is quite obvious.

The road itself will need some paving as well and there is a section that is still single lane.  Regardless, it means people can get out to do some cross country skiing and snowshoeing this year.  I was a little jealous when I saw Tom MacLachlan. and John Verhagen out.

Instead, we made a snowman.  A sweet snowman!

For Thanksgiving this year we headed North to Cochrane where Stacie's brother now lives.  He's enjoying the quiet country living, or what passes for that around Calgary.  The fact is, it's much easier to get to and there is some nice walking near his home.  Much better than Calgary.  We enjoyed some quiet time and a nice walk.

Hard to believe, but after a lengthy procrastination, I've decided to post again... if not for me, but my one or two faithful readers who actually used it to keep track of our family.

I thought I would post of a recent event and then post about past events.  It'll be like a reverse year!

We spend the Remembrance Weekend down in Montana with Family. Twelve of us in fact!  It started with us then paired up with my brother, unpaired and then paired up again with both my Dad and Stacie's Folks.  What a show!  And we didn't charge admission.

We booked a cabin next to my brothers 10% ownership in Ptarmigan Village and had a grand time.  Lots of shopping, eating and watching Disney cartoons.  We even made it out for a quick hike.

It was a great weekend with family and I also got to pick up my new toy, a HP Chromebook 11.  I'll let you know how that adventure works out later!

Boys Ski Trip

Dora gave me the OK and besides the fact that it landed on our Judo tournament date, everything went perfect.

Here are some shots from the trip

Old School Judo

So I decided to fight again.. Been at least 15+ years since I've stepped on the mat, but I did it anyways.  It's been 5 days now and my arm is still hurting.  Not sure if the abuse I took or the fact that my technique was so poor I injured myself.  Regardless, I thought I would post some of my pictures and video from the day.

Oh yeah... managed to squeak out a gold!

Beard today... gone tomorrow

Finally shaved my beard.  Think I started in November and kept it till January sometime.  I trimmed it up a few times, but the hair on my chin was pretty true till the end.

Man I needed a haircut!
