What To Read In The Rain by 826 Seattle

Friday, May 18th, 2012

A few months ago I had the opportunity to be a part of a great project. One of my photos was found and picked to be used as the cover of 826 Seattle’s 2012 Hotel BookWhat To Read In The Rain.

Project 365 #49

Warning!

The following images may gross you out. I was able to keep what the dentist didn’t break. Here are a few shots of my beautiful wisdom teeth.

Wisdom teeth, why do we have them if they just end up getting ripped out out of your mouth. I now know the importance of having good dental insurance and when to use it. Like maybe seven years ago when my wisdom teeth were smaller and hadn’t grown roots. I’m pretty sure it would’ve been a lot less painful, the holes they leave would’ve been a lot smaller, and I could’ve started eating regular food sooner.

Project 365 #47 is a photo of myself. It’s the look I have as I keep hearing about all this great snow falling at home and in the mountains and I can’t enjoy it. I hate being sick and wisdom teeth!!!!

And now back by popular demand, the shortest Project 365 ever. I’m sorry I missed one day, which turned into a weekend, which turned into more than a month. I’m gonna give this another try…

The following picture isn’t one that I took but one that I’ve been meaning to post for a while. It’s a shot of a couple of friends and I at Timberline Ski Resort at Mt.Hood, Oregon. This photo was taken with what seems like the first digital camera ever made. My iPhone can take better pictures. (Ok, maybe not my iPhone.) That doesn’t matter though because it was good enough to take a picture then, that I still have today, and can now post online. In the end, that’s why we take pictures; to share them with others, to remember the good times and the bad. Luckily this was a good day, not the best snow, only a few lifts were running, but we were on the snow very early in the season.

The guy on the right is my friend Jessie. He was the guy that started it all, he got us into this but because of him we’ve also gotten a lot of other people out on the snow. The most recent were the Pinkowski boys which will probably be teaching us a few things soon.

The guy on the left is my friend Riley. He pushes us all. I don’t know too many people that ride with broken bones and a torn meniscbcbwabzrsjnok; yes, that’s a medical term.

In the middle, that’s me.

I love this shot and hope to get an updated version sometime this year. I just hope we remember to take our goggles off…

They don’t makes toys like this anymore…

A few weeks ago I went back home for the weekend to visit my family. While I was there I stopped by a friends house. I hadn’t been to their new place since they moved. After getting a tour of their home we headed outside to see the beautiful view of the Yakima Valley from their patio. As we sat and talked for a while I noticed that she had this old toy tractor that her grandson was playing by. I remembered that tractor, I couldn’t believe she still had it. I used to ride it when I was very young.

The other day I found a few photos of a very young me, riding that same tractor.  Look at my hair!

They really don’t make toys like this anymore. How many people still have their very first Nintendo or Transformer action figures. I wish I did, but that’s a different blog post…
