I'm crazy jealous of my little brother and his job/lifestyle. I'm so excited for him to be able to experience things like this.

He has a "real" job working for a stock photo company. He literally is assigned to take lots of pictures of "stuff". He is sent out with top quality professional photography gear and takes thousands of pictures of "stuff".

He also has been working on the sailing crew for the tall ship Tole Mour. It was just sold to a company in the Caribbean. He got hired to sail it to Panama where it will be refitted, and then sail it through the Panama Canal to the Caribbean. Sadly, he will be without communication for approximately 3 weeks until he gets to Panama.

This is him on the lower topsail yard.


This is the ship he's working on and where he is perched in the previous picture:





Living the dream.

He's traveled to more places than I even know about.

I guess getting a degree in Geography has it's perks.

Word. When you go out to a hydro-fracturing site, all the propellerheads you see in khaki slacks have geology degrees of some sort.

Had a good day at the gym...

475 lbs after doing 370x10. Did 410, then 455 before hitting 475. All with feeling sick. Just had to get out of the house, though. I felt better after.

I have worked only a little since coming back from Bangkok. Three days here, 1/2 day there, this last pay period included only 10 hours. But, I am "retired" and I do like my time off, and I take advantage of it when I can. We took Isaac camping for two nights, we are taking Isaac and his sister to a safari-type park this weekend, I have been playing a few gigs, rehearsing with the community choir/orchestra for the Christmas performances... just living the good life.

This evening I took a call from my boss... and he needs me to go back to Thailand in less than two weeks. This time will be shorter - I should be back home after midnight of Dec 20th. But, there are preparing for a longer trip in January...and would I be interested in making that trip, too?

I told him that if I could take my wife, I would go on the longer trip, too.

The money is pretty good. I am getting a concrete slab poured under my "shed" (I-beam construction, metal roof & sides 36'x24') where I park the music trailer and travel trailer. This one trip should pay for that project. I will miss one performance with the orchestra, but I might can talk my son-in-law into subbing for me. I helped him pick out a bass, G&L L2500 Tribute which he loves, and he has a Master's in music - sight reads like a dream.

This might all work out just right.

For the fitness stuff, you normally get shit if you don't record vertically. Especially if you're asking for a form check. I've only really ever recorded myself twice; this one and a 405 lb squat. I've heard enough people make mention of it that it sank in.

I greased 2 Coyotes today with my 1960 .257 Weatherby. One inch four power scope at 78 and 191 yards.

I ate a sleeve of powdered donuts to celebrate their demise.

Happy Turkey Day.
