In mid-2004, I went on a great adventure, at least for me. My brother and I climbed Wheeler Peak, the highest point in New Mexico. Okay, it was mostly walking (not climbing), but still pretty tough. That was before I had a website, a blog, or a place like Flickr to store and organize thousands[…]

First of all, my thoughts & prayers are with my Oklahoma friends/family who’ve lost power this evening. I know my sister’s electricity went off during the ice storm about 5 p.m., and so I assume my parents’ and grandparents’ are out as well (same grid). I can’t wait to hear that you’ve made it safely[…]

Sorry I haven’t blogged in a few days. The main thing you need to know about the past few days is that we bought a car. Yesterday, we paid cash for a 2003 Dodge Neon SE with 42,800 miles. (Compared to dozens of others we’ve found for sale, we got a very good price.) It’s[…]

Monday evening, my wife got off work early, and we decided to treat ourselves to a nice dinner. We went to TGI Friday’s (last time there, we had a good experience). Our appetizers were good, but when the main courses came, she wasn’t really happy with hers and ate only three bites or so. At[…]

A Walk in the Park Sunday afternoon when my wife got off work, we walked up the street to Dairy Queen. I had a Blizzard and she got a vanilla malt. It was about 65 or 70 degrees outside, and mostly sunny. In other words, a perfect day after the two days of rain and[…]

Recurring Dream Last night, while trying to sleep through the noise coming from the upstairs apartment (which lasted all night), I had a dream that I’ve had several times over the past year. Real Life: I lived in Arkansas from May 1995 through October 2000. During that time, I lived in Cabot (seven months), Jacksonville[…]

LBJ Museum On Tuesday, my wife and I decided, pretty much on the spur of the moment, to drive to Austin to visit the Lyndon Baines Johnson Library & Museum ( official site ). Here are some photos from the day: (All photos copyright © 2010 by Wil C. Fry. All rights reserved.) If you’re[…]

National Championship Game Marline’s pick: Alabama 21, Texas 7 Wil’s prediction: Texas 34, Alabama 20 Actual game: Alabama 37, Texas 21 (I guessed closer to the final score, but we both picked the spread pretty close, and Marline got the winner right, as usual.) Today, we shopped, took down the Christmas tree, and watched football.[…]

Baking Cookies Tuesday, my wife and I baked cookies together, and lived to tell about it. Here are some shots from the afternoon (it’s not my fault they don’t play in the correct order; that’s just Flickr’s system…): (Copyright © 2010 by Wil C. Fry. All rights reserved.)

We Love Our Board Games

Board games have been part of my life since I was a child. They’re an easy way to pass the time with people you love, don’t cost too much, exercise the mind, and store easily. When I got married, my wife soon began to enjoy these games as well. Now we have a nice and[…]
