Find a dollar, pick it up...

Well, life without speed bumps has been pretty nice. Not that I've been around too much to enjoy it. Since my last post I have had a couple week long jobs out of town with some down time in between. It's been pretty cool, I was able to visit two places I've never been before; Seattle, Washington and Green Bay, Wisconsin. 

Seattle was cool. We booked an extra day in town after the job was finished so that we could go do a little sightseeing in the city. We had time to go to the Pike Place Market for a few hours, drive around the city and see a few things, then we loaded a ferry to cross Puget Sound for Bainbridge Island. The sun was setting as we rode towards the island and we had a pretty nice view of Mt. Rainier along the way. Once we were on the island we had enough time to drive around a little before we ate dinner at a nice little diner at the marina. Shortly after, we had to jet back over to the ferry so that we weren't stuck on the island for several more hours with nothing else to do. Overall, I enjoyed Seattle.

Next we had a job in Green Bay. I was definitely surprised by this city. It was much smaller than I thought. I was expecting a small city but not this small. It's amazing that they have a NFL team in a town that small. It was nice though. Once you got out of "downtown" there were loads of little individually owned farms and some quaint little houses. I enjoyed my trip to Green Bay but I'm not going to be making any plans to visit again in the near future. 

That's what I've been up to lately. It was nice to go north for a couple of weeks before the summer officially sets in. Tonight the air was pretty nice so I took a long walk to enjoy it before the temps push just shy of 100 next week. And when I was almost home I looked down and found a dollar on the street. It was pretty random, and for some reason I felt guilty picking it up. I don't know why, but it felt like I was stealing. I wouldn't feel funny picking up a quarter but once you start finding actual paper money it feels different for some reason. (even though it was in the street and no one else was around to claim that they dropped it) I don't know why but I just thought I'd share that...

Glad to see an update (that coming from someone who is blogless). It is good to hear that all is well with you. I am out of school for the summer and doing some part-time Audio stuff. We need to catchup soon. Take care.
