my 15 fishing trip losing streak has finally come to a close with my first kokanee and it was delicious.  We braved icy wind and a crust of ice on the lake to catch 4 of the tastiest fish money can’t buy.

I cobbled together this monstrosity last year during the snowpocalypse in Portland.  Now that I’m in a place in which I can use it I brought it out for a little slide around the property.

greens grow!

February 18, 2010

The greenhouse has awoken from it’s hibernation and has begun producing veggies and salad greens again.  Erica was able to harvest over 5 pounds of mixed greens the other day, Spring is unavoidable.

major award imminent

February 12, 2010

The Wallowa county Chieftain is holding their annual photo contest and I have sold out (definition) by whoring my beautiful art work for the possibility of a major award.  The fame that can only come from winning a small town photo contest is a also a nice lure.   You can help me attain this pinnacle of photojournalism excellence by clicking on the accompanying photos then the save vote button at the bottom of the page.  You can vote for other submissions also if you really want ( I secretly love this one).  Thanks and I promise to remember you after I win, “Fame won’t change me”.
