While Ryan and I were in Oxford, we stopped by Faulkner's homeplace, Rowan Oak. It killed some time before the shows started, and it gave Ryan a chance to try out his new lens on the Nikon. Not often I get to play the role of model. They are nice enough headshots that I've posted a few to my flickr account. Now I'll have to practice and return the favor sometime this year. I'm hoping some of Ryan's talent will rub off on me.

I had fun working the concession stand at South MS Speedway, and it looks like Terry and JoEllen and the rest of the team now have enough money for their 2 weeks in Africa.

Getting ready for bed later that night, I noticed a couple of strange bites on my leg. At first, I was worried the bites might be from a Brown Recluse Spider. To my relief, after checking on the web, I think they are from a hornet or bee. I'm surprised that I didn't feel anything earlier. I guess that means I'm not terribly allergic to whatever it is that stung me...

Before we got to the Speedway, my friend Alyssa and I stopped at a convenience store to buy Powerades. We were talking about recent TV shows that we like. She mentioned that she's a fan of Kyle XY. I asked her if she'd heard about Traveler. From across the store, a guy called out, "GREAT SHOW! That's a fantastic show!" I guess I'm not alone in being a fan of the new series. Have you caught an episode? My niece had the first couple episodes saved on her Tivo, and we watched them together on my last visit to her place. Now, I'll have to check and see if it's on iTunes, since I'll bet I've missed at least one broadcast. Ryan and I have been watching the DVD's of the first season of Lost. He's never seen the show before, and I never caught the first season. I'm impressed with the amount of irony and foreshadowing. Hats off to J.J. Abrams, Jeffrey Lieber, and Damon Lindelof!

Ryan and I are finally getting his flickr account up and running. Here's the link to his profile.

Don't have your flickr account set up? It's my favorite networking site, and it's free to join. Hope to see you there.
