New bikes and a brush fire

So I bought the wife n kidz new bikes this weekend. Nate got his first "big boy" bike with hand brakes and a grip shifter, and Tess got her first 2 wheel bike.... with training wheels of course. :) Molly got a nice comfy but light and pretty nice cruiser.

We found a parking lot to ride around was such a beautiful day, and Tess needed some gentle space to practice in. When we first got there Molly said that she thought she smelled smoke, and sure enough, I did too. We assumed that someone was burning leaves somewhere nearby.

We rode around for about twenty minutes, going around and around, the kids getting used to their new bling rides, and Nate and I are off in another part of the parking lot when Molly shouts out "James! There's a fire!!"

Sure enough, some bushes spontaneously caught fire in one of the parking lot islands. We called 911, the fire dept arrived and put it out. Posted by Picasa

Has it really been this long?

Has it?

I suppose it has.

In the intervening time, I have:

Loved my job

Hated my job

Bought a Glock

...and a colt defender

Traded my M60 .38 for a M38 Bodyguard

Seen Nate's first T-ball practice

Had Christmas at out house

Had my 40th b-day in a hotel near the data centre, working

Discovered a great Shootin' Pit just a few miles from home

Hunted with Tom again (saw deer, did not shoot)

And a lot of other stuff. Now that picassa can link photos to blogs, I will blog more stuff.
