Had a fun time in Amarillo, Texas, visiting my cousin Matt. The sky is so wide open in Texas, almost as if you can see all the way to heaven.

Palo Duro Canyon Park

We also drove to Lubbock to see Bibins, who I learned is now engaged. Congratulations! Matt got a speeding ticket on the way back to Amarillo. I didn't even realize we were going so fast--the roads were so straight and even. It was really good to have a change of scenery; the sun and the sky comes out so rarely in the winter here that I almost forgot what they looked like.


  1. Hi roy, happy new year!

    where will you be 2nd wk of feb? If things push thru as planned, I may fly to san diego to attend a bootcamp. By chance you are anywhere around?


  2. Hmm, San Diego is kinda far, but if you're there on a weekend, and I can book a cheap flight... traveling more *is* one of my new year's resolutions!

    Email me your sched, and we can plan on meeting :)
