So for a while I’ve had photos scattered in a few different places, I’ve decided to consolidate everything onto flickr (at least for the time being). I don’t love flickr’s presentation but I can’t argue with their usability. There are just more tools out there and flikr is the 500lb gorilla as far as community and sharing sites.
The only photos that will be public are the ‘style’ type photos. All the personal stuff will be Friend/Family only as appropriate. I’m sure a time will come when I may want to be able to see pictures of my kids but for right now I’m going to protect their privacy. Joining flickr is free and I recommend anyone interested in joining and adding me as a contact. I’ll return the favor and you can see all the cuteness/etc to your hearts content.
The photostream will pull in on the sidebar and can be found directly at http://flickr.com/photos/stickm
Today I upped my family by one, increased my available tax deductions and created another justification for a larger car. My daughter Maggie Anne MacLeod was born at 12:52pm today, 8lbs 7os, 22″ long. Mom and Maggie are doing just fine. A few pictures can be found at http://picasaweb.google.com/stick265/Maggie
So I’ve been a horrible slacker with regards to this blog. I’ve been terribly busy recently, but that’s not much of an excuse. It seems that everytime I go to update wordpress I end up redoing my theme. So once again I’m updated it and hopefully that will keep me from going months between posts. It’s been a busy couple of months. The Disc Golf season is pretty much over. Since we’re here in the south you can pretty much play year rounds but at my age being out in 30 degree weather isn’t my idea of a good time. I am planning on going to Mytle Beach for a tournament in December.
Love the Red Wings, hate the Red Wings, it’s hard not to appreciate the class of Steve Yserman. His jersey now hangs at Joe Louis Arena, as everyone knew it would. When a player retires there are always a lot of stories about their dedication, their charitable works, what they’ve done for the sport, the town, or the sick kids at the hospital.
As a new father I can’t imagine the converstations that have to happen when something like this happens, it breaks my heart. But above all it shows true dedication.
Connor has been alive for 3 weeks now and after spending a week in the nursery he came home. The past 2 weeks have been fun. Don’t get me wrong definatly trying, but certaining fun and boy educational! We still aren’t sleeping much, at least not in continuous blocks. We take lots of naps, usually not at the same time either. In fact it’s time for one now.
