having been in education in one form or another for the last 15 years, we’ve ALWAYS had to spend our own money to get things done. surely we’re not surprised…
today’s the first day back to work. third grad class is tonight.
and this is about how i feel about it all. it’s the best “what the frick?!?” look i could muster.
last night lise and i passed by a health spa / fitness center and on the sign outside the center it said:
and all i could think was:
wouldn’t that be painful?
…it’d have to be this one.
it makes a nice desktop background, too.
pictures are up – i’ve spared you the brunt of boredom by picking out the most interesting of the 150 or so taken.
follow this link to get to check ‘em out.
what to do with the skinnydipping pictures – this hasn’t been decided yet. for now, the above pictures are all rated G.
PS – the pictures are all quite large – almost 2mb each – be patient. :-)
and boy are my arms tired.
great week with my lady down in pensacola.
sun, sand, water, seashells, rainbows, thunderstorms, clouds, seafood, parks, pelicans, driving, flounders, crabs, condos, skinnydipping, swimming, waves, seagulls, herons, egrets, hotels, music, laughter, love, setting, watching, relaxing, cooking, hanging, chilling, dreaming, scheming – all this and more were had.
and pictures will follow tomorrow once i get some sleep.
it’s been an incredible three days here in pensacola. the weather is a rollercoaster one minute sunny and gorgeous, the next minute thunderstorms and grey. it’s been great!
peeing in the gulf the other day was sweetness but skinny dipping tonight was like a dream come true. pictures were taken however I doubt they’ll see the light of day here on this blog. I realized when lise told me to pose and took several pics that I might be regretting this act later
the beach during the day has been crazy hot so have been going out in the mornings and at night. sunsets of the traditional genre have eluded us, but we’ve made the most of it. seashells lie around and wait for us to pick them up and bag them. waves crash, salty water splashes, memories are made and we look at each other and realize that there’s no place we’d rather be than right here with each other.
sleep well, friends.
and it felt great.
the drive to pensacola is relatively uneventful. some rain. some sun. some mountains. some plains. gas stations. malls. the usual.
but nothing prepares us for Dinosaur World. nestled in the hills of KY, it provided us a laugh and a poor quality phone pic of a giant mis-colored beast.
and now, lise and I share it with you.
aren’t you lucky?
i’ve spent the last week tinkering with this new website – i was looking for something to replace the old youth group site and the result is:
there’s still some kinks to knock out of it but that’ll come in due time. for now, this’ll be the place to check. if you’ve linked me, change your links, too.
lise and i are leaving for florida early sunday morning and will be back sometime next saturday (the 26th). will be testing a feature of the new blog by blogging by phone and pocket PC.
will it work?
who knows. keep checking here to find out!
FYI to all you bloggers out there: getting rustypants.net registered and blog-ready wasn’t that difficult and was DIRT CHEAP – also registered www.scottandlise.com – both of them together (including hundreds of email accounts, gigs of web space, a blog for each one and easy to use templates for the webpages) was only $44.88 for a year. this is where we got it from.
as someone who’s been putting up websites for over 10 years, this is the best deal, easiest setup and manipulation i’ve ever dealt with.
geez, i sound like an infomercial now.
