Kodi Morrison, pictured here as a Varnum H.S. sophomore, aims a three-pointer during her final game of 2007, a loss to Eagletown in the Area Tournament. Watching the OU v. Kentucky women’s game tonight was a pleasure. Kentucky burst out to a 8-0 lead and[…]

Locking in the Options

This morning, my wife and I went a step further toward getting our house built. The company we’re going through (I won’t mention the company’s name, since this is a public blog, and the house isn’t ours yet…) offers a nice list of standard features for the house, and a long list of upgrade options,[…]

House Location

For years, I’ve been impressed with how quickly Google Maps (and Google Earth) keep up with new developments on the ground. But I’ve found where they’re a little behind. The streets I drove down last week (and again today) what will soon be a new neighborhood are *not* on Google Maps. (Screenshot of Google Maps[…]

House Buying

(If you haven’t yet read my previous post, please do so.) After considering many hundreds of house plans (most of which have the same flaws…), many home builders, many real estate agents, and many different options over the past several months, my wife and I have made a choice. In the end, we went with[…]

House Hunting

I’ll give my wife credit (I always do!): she’s been heavily researching homes for sale in this area, ever since we moved here. Our plan was (is) to rent an apartment the first year, while we got settled in the area and made sure it was right for us; then buy a house. Half that[…]

Sunday, my wife and I took another day trip, this time to Blue Hole Park in Georgetown, Texas . It turned out to be an extension of the Winfred H. Bonner Trail that we’d already been on, back in January (at that time, Blue Hole was under construction, and we’d seen it from a distance[…]

On Saturday, my wife and I went to Mount Bonnell, in Austin, Texas. It’s basically a bluff, overlooking the river (ironically, the river is called “Lake Austin”) and some really nice houses. Here’s one photo from that day: (Copyright © 2010 by Wil C. Fry. All rights reserved.) To see all 29 photos from this[…]

New Serving Dish

My sister Shari sent us a very nice blue and white pottery serving dish from the UK recently — I think we classified it as a “somewhat late Christmas present.” My wife suggested taking a picture of it in use, since we’ve used it several times already. Now my sister across the pond can see[…]

When you buy a “cholesterol free” product, have you ever wondered where all that cholesterol went? Now you know: (Copyright © 2010 by Wil C. Fry. All rights reserved.) (Copyright © 2010 by Wil C. Fry. All rights reserved.)

Picnic in the Park

Thursday, we had a picnic lunch in the park. My wife had just worked four long days, and the last two had ended with us taking a walk in the park. She decided we’d have a picnic lunch there on Thursday. We made sandwiches, dipped out some potato salad, filled water bottles, and headed out.[…]

Some photographers make a living out of long exposures. Others only do it when they have to. I rarely make a long exposure, mainly because I’m lazy, and well, they take a lot of time. In this digital photography age, we’re used to snapping a photo and moving on. Few of us want to take[…]

Cell Phone Guts

My wife’s LG cell phone worked for over a year *after* one of the hinges broke. Somehow, she was still able to make and receive calls, despite the fact that the fold-out part was attached only by a wire. But it was irritating. Recently, her two years free replacement came up (part of the Verizon[…]

Walks in the Park

After really heavy thunderstorms on Monday afternoon, the weather has been near-perfect here in Killeen. On both Tuesday and Wednesday, my wife and I took walks in the park after she got home from work. Each time, we walked for about an hour. The air was about 75°F. On Wednesday, we had ice cream at[…]

Today, we went to the local vehicle registration office and got Texas license plates for the Mercury, and then switched our driver’s licenses to Texas as well. The first part was relatively painless and quick. I think we waited five minutes and it took about 10 minutes to get all our stuff filled out. The[…]

Sorry I haven’t blogged in a while. There’s really nothing going on that’s too important. My wife’s been working as usual, bringing home the bacon, and I’ve been keeping house. I’ve also continued to go through old photos that have never seen the light of day. Currently, I’m finishing up 2004, which is the year[…]
