happy new year! Wow, its hear again. Time for the ball to drop. Gonna go party Ranch House style and celebrate by waking up and salting walkways at 6:00 tomorrow morning. Don't you wish you were me?

it happened.

That history I was writing about in a previous post. The WSU men's basketball team has started their season 12-0 tying their best start since the invention of the shot clock! Next up in the new year, the University of Washington Huskies.

hi ho, hi ho...

it's off to work we go. Went actually. Today was our first day back at camp after the break, and it was really nice. Time flew and we got a lot done in preparation for a group that is coming up tomorrow and staying for the better half of the month. They are a Wilderness EMT course and they hold they're classes here on the mountain. There should be some pretty good stories.

These are a couple of kids that we were standing in line with (on our honeymoon) as we awaited our turn on the Nemo ride.

we're heading home

it's been an awesome time here in Elk Grove. We've had time to really relax and be away for a pretty significant chunk of time. I, for one, am ready to get back up the mountain and start working again. We are going to take a full day to settle back in at home and then crank it up again on the 29th. As for today, 3 1/2 hours in the car with our cat should be pretty entertaining.

Last night the WSU men's basketball team got their 10th win of the season. This is noteworthy because they have only played 10 games so far. For those of you keeping track at home, that is, in fact, a 10-0 start. The best start in school history was during the 1991-1992 season when the team went 12-0. The current eddition of WSU bball has two games left over teams they should beat before they start the Pac-10 season on the road, in Seattle, at our bitter rival the University of Washington. Should be fun.

ask how, ask now...

ask Sherwin Williams. Does anyone else other than me remember that slogan? Anyway, the past three days have been spent doing prep work for a big paint job in mountain view lounge. I didn't really understand just how big that room was until Cosby and I started meticulously taping and running plastic up in the rafters, and all of the window sills. There is a lot of space in that room. Prep will be done tomorrow and then we will start to paint on Monday.

the first semester...

is in the books. Today marks the end of the "fall semester" up here at camp. Three people (Tyson, Katie, Arty) will be leaving for good at the break. The rest of us will return with some newbies to start the spring semester. It has been good. Still waiting for snow.
