May 30th: Dad takes advantage of Memorial Day to get the web site up early!

Not that I didn't go to work today too... but it was a short day - only 7 to 5...

So what can I write about this month?

I went to see The Who! It was supposed to be their 50th anniversary tour, and it was supposed to be last year but Roger Daltry suffered a throat infection before reaching Portland so it was rescheduled for this month. For a couple of old guys (only Pete and Roger survive at this point, so they have Ringo Starr's son Zak Starkey on drums, Pino Palladino on bass, and a variety of other muscians providing backup) they did a pretty amazing job.

Work continues to be stressful as we're still working through cutting headcount by 12000 people... Supposedly it will all be decided by the end of June. I guess we'll see.

Harry's Heaven Day was also stressful, as always. I want to remember the good times with Harry and rejoice in bringing new color to our home in his memory, but of course it doesn't just work that way...

I want to turn the whole thing upside down
I'll find the things they say just can't be found
I'll share this love I find with everyone
We'll sing and dance to Mother Nature's songs
I don't want this feeling to go away

We do appreciate everyone who remembers the day with us... Please think of Harry and share a smile.

Red Nose Day wasn't actually until May 26, but why wait? Besides, once he included me being a doofus, Dad had a perfect excuse to include Mom doing this! :-) This is really just a picture of Cream Cheese and Cheesecake... Quinn and I are superfluous. This is my artwork! (OK, Dad put these 4 together in one picture, but the 4 pictures are mine...)
Mom took a bunch of these, but Dad insisted we only needed one of Me, Quinn, Colby, and Amelie (and the dogs...) We planted again for Harry's Heaven Day. It will all look a lot better in a few more weeks. This is more of my artwork... I'm most proud of my "feet selfie" but Dad just likes the rocks... Cream Cheese and Cheesecake went blueberry fishing this month... and made a big mess!
Before Red Nose Day, it was Towel Day! Johanna and I really impressed everyone at school with the shirts I made... I even made Dad a shirt and he actually wore it to work! But he wouldn't carry a towel around all day... Remembering Harry from May 2008... And May 2010...
