I have been rather busy lately and have obviously not been posting too much. Now that I am stuck in the middle of the shutdown with not much to do I can get some things caught up, and this is one of them.
In staying true to keeping my blog fairly non-political, I will not be commenting on the shutdown. I have my opinions on which group is at fault and it will not be posted on here. Those who know me know my feelings on it.
I have been getting a lot of things done at work. The busy season for tourists is, for the most part, over. It was a very busy summer, and we had a few record-breaking days and months. We can catch up on a few projects around the refuge when we reopen.
My parents came out to visit. It was great to see them, and even though it was a bit of a quick visit we had a good time. I showed them around some various places here that you just won’t see in the Midwest.
We wrapped up a successful green crab season by not catching any. That is really good news. It was a very interesting project to be a part of. I also got to know my partner Dow a lot better, and he is a great guy. He is an avid birder that I have written about before, and he has taught me things about birds that have been interesting to learn.
I took a roadtrip to SD which I am writing about for a separate post. I brought back most of my things from SD… out of what little I have left. I have a lot of VHS tapes of family videos, movies, and music that I want to keep so I bought a converter box to encode them into my Mac. This way I can get rid of the tapes and save a bunch of space in my storage boxes.
I responded to an ad from a guy in Canada who is looking for a Honda V65 Magna to buy. I just wanted to ask him if he found one because I was considering selling mine (I just have not had the time to ride it much and will have even less time next summer). He wrote back asking for pictures and pretty much it is sold now. He is waiting to get money from a car he is selling then he will take it.
That is a brief update until I can get back here in the next day or two and resume my postings.
