once more into the breach

Well looks like 4 more holes are on order. 

Still, at 50% off retail can't pass that kinda deal up.  

Thank goodness Mrs Wulff has set aside plenty of fun sized snickers to fuel this engine.

road goes ever on

Back porch wall tile us coming along, slow but sure. 

One thing that's become apparent: better keep my day job. 

Here's hoping the grout will even things out?

Ladies and gentlemen, your flight is cleared for takeoff~ 

fall break

Kids had a fall break from school last week, giving us the opportunity to get out onto the Juan.

Did not have both kids out casting rods much last summer, so this was a welcome break for me as well.
Time to catch up, spend some quality time together.  Sharing smiles, laffs, whoops.

And disappointments too- some of last year's planters have all grown up.  To totally school the uninitiated on the Juan.

Still others did meet their match in the form of this ole angler. Ha!

viento encantado

dawn patrol
Had to opportunity to hook us up with the pilots and crew of the Viento Encantado balloon the last day of ABQ's Balloon Fiesta.

envelope training

Can't say enough about the hospitality everyone extended the kids and I.  If you have not yet experienced crewing a balloon, you'll find the entire community vibe second to none.

pilot's briefing

lot to learn

we have a go for launch


just as much for me
Many thanks to Russ, Clark, Aileen for having us out, showing the kids the ropes, literally, about the backstory launching and recovering a hot air balloon.   Quite something to witness the synergy between pilots, crew, balloon first hand.

west ridge, Otero Canyon

September is behind us, Oterober is upon us.  (Oh, you remember Oteruary?  Well, there's sure to be more where that came from ;-)  

Happy Oterober everyone, may yours be a chunky one!
