My niece, Jill. This is just a post so she can say she has been on Moonpie. Xoxo.

Happy Fall time. Go to a local farm this weekend and check out the corn maze. Have fun.

Robin Williams Dead?

Really? Holy fucking shit.

Not that it necessarily surprises me. He always seemed like one of those laughing-through-the-tears guys.

In later years I think he kind of became a parody of himself and I thought his recent TV show was lame. Really, I think his best work was his serious stuff. Dead Poets Society, The Fisher King, and Good Will Hunting. I also like the much forgotten Being Human.

Birthday wishes

I proclaim this day to be R.R. Day in the great State of New Mexico. July 9th will forever be a day of eating tacos and drinking beer. Step up, fill your plate and glass. Happy day of birth to R.R.

I say good-day.

Ricks camper restore project

A few weeks ago I posted a "Before" photo of the camper my wife and I are restoring.
Here's the "After"shot. We're going minimalist on the design. Lots of windows and an "open" floor plan.

Check out the real progress at my How Hard Can It Be? blog.

Blunt Force Trauma




About 5 months ago, Allison and I were taking out a spare room we'd built a few years earlier. I was up on the ladder cutting into some drywall and the next thing I knew, I was on the floor. I thought I'd cut into the electrical with my sawzall and electrocuted myself. My head was pounding and then... then there was blood all over my fingers. WTF?


Well, there was a lot of dust in the room and so I'd left the ceiling fan on. Apparently as I was cutting the drywall, I leaned back into the fan blade.


You know you're a parent when all you can find to put on a bloody gash is a freakin' Tigger bandaid.
This is the worst accident I've had in working any of my DIY projects, so I count myself fortunate.
How we took the sheet metal skin off our trailer without slicing off one of our heads is a miracle in itself.

Rebuilding A "Wee Hoosie."


Rick and his wife picked up this quasi-kick-ass 50's vintage travel trailer a few weeks back and are in the process of renovating it. This is certainly a Moonpie-Worthy vehicle -- especially since the inside is totally gutted.

The happy couple are taking the summer off work and sort of dedicating themselves to doing this thing right.

You can check out the progress on this beast at Rick's blog: How Hard Can It Be? Rebuilding A "Wee Hoosie."

Monty Python in the early years. We would spend, oh I don't know.......hours listening and reciteing line after line of Python. The practice has served me well 'or these many years.

Growing the Santa Beard


Here's a little video -- that should work -- showing the progression of my beard growth from last September to a few days ago.

Off the wall

A group that Rick and I went to high school with. I had a photography class with Vaughn and Jeff (top and bottom of photo). We would leave class to "take pictures" and go down to their Boxcar storage facility and hang out. Good times.
