he's got "the cancer."

but hopefully not for long...
as long as he manages to not eat sodium or iodine for three weeks and the radiation does its job, my cousin mike should be back to "normal" soon.

but he'll still have a heckuva scar.

when old man winter comes to town.

to complete the brookings winter experience, we got stuck in a snow ditch (but were able to push out) on our way to a small-town bar that we used to go to when we were kids. these bruce locals let me take their picture while they were drinking coffee. in hindsight, i should have maybe worked the situation a bit, but we had steak to eat and beers to drink.

the rural alberta advantage

uff da.
i nearly forgot i had one of these things. i suck.
back before christmas, two of my favorite people decided to leave the big apple and visit family back in south dakota, so i braved the cold and buzzed up there.

ryan and julie picked the coldest-ever weather to visit. my breath froze to my beard instantly. the wind was constant, as were the four-foot high drifts every morning in front of his dad's house.

still, it was a good trip. i don't get to see them very often, and i don't go up to brookings much.

good times.
