skateboarding is not about not falling, but falling well.

skateboarding is not about not falling, but falling well.

tonight i did not fall well. so i earned a gnarly road rash and ripped jeans. and no i wasn’t going down the super steep hill at top speed like the other day. just rolling down off the sidewalk into street AT SLOW SPEED hit a crack and then maybe a pebble and BAM!

it does makes me think twice about rolling down the monster hill again at night with no pads :-)

salt fish, a downeast delicacy.

salt fish, a downeast delicacy.

in wisconsin gas stations you’ll find cheese curds. In downeast maine if you’re lucky you’ll find dried fish. a.k.a. strip fish or salt fish. I so very much love it and it’s getting harder and harder to find. It’s sort of like a very salty fish jerky. Many thanks to my sister who cleaned out a gas station in jonesport so I could take a bunch home.

198/365. a pleasant refueling mistake on a 13 mile run.

i was dragging it a bit on a 13 mile run and thought i could use some easy energy so i made a pitstop at the house and grabbed what i thought was a bottle of honey from the pantry. downed a tablespoon and thought, “oooooh what delicious artisan honey is this? and how did it get such strong vanilla notes?

i turned the bottle over. aaaahhhhh, not honey after all.

day 4015 – 180/365. a rare family reunion!

day 4015 - 180/365. a rare family reunion!

wow, how time flies – we haven’t had this crew together for 6 years! since then some have been born, many have gotten bigger and at least one of us has gotten much smaller :-) always great to see family. odin had a grand time with his cousins.

i’m sure somewhere i have a photo of us the last time we got together that i should dig out.

as always, the odds are slim of getting everyone to look at the camera at the same time in family photos.
