Busy Daddy...

1 min read
Three weeks ago I became the father of a beautiful little girl!  Unfortunately, I don't have the energy to process and post photos, much less take new ones.  I am still around, checking my deviations an messages, but it is going to be awhile before I get around to posting anything.

Overworked...

1 min read
It's summer, which means long days that are great for railfanning--and I'm too busy to enjoy any of it.

My day job is the software architect and primary framework developer for a small startup company writing healthcare software.  We have a big project with a tightly packed schedule and it is eating up most of my spare time.  Indeed, I'm needing to work weekends to keep up.

Anyway, it is safe to assume that my activity will be kept down to my usual commenting (which is a nice use of my short break time), but I will not be posting any pictures until my schedule loosens up a bit.  :)

Yesterday I went on an all day trek with rdw283 to chase Southern Pacific 4449 from the Oregon border into Spokane, WA.  I have chronicled our endeavors with a posted picture and a blurb from each of the dozen stops we made, but was careful to keep each shot unique and interesting so that each one would be worth viewing.
