For those of you that glanced at yesterday’s post and didn’t read the ever-increasing level of ridiculousness of my “dream job” with Team Sky . . I’m sad to say April Fool. I’ll be returning to my boring, standard issue work place for the foreseeable future. As ridiculous as the job sounded what with ultimately moving to a war-torn part of the Middle East, I would still accept it in a heartbeat if really offered. (Just in case Team Sky is listening.) My wife, however, would probably be less than thrilled about moving into a yurt in Mongolia for 5 years and even less thrilled about moving to Syria and having to wear a burka every day.
Now, if I can only get the weather people to say “April Fool” and stop calling for cold and snow. It’s April for goodness sake.

I read the "About Me" pages and it seems like most people have a lot better story than me. I'm kinda average really. Just a 50 something dude with a lot of life experience. I grew up in a rural setting, somehow wound up living in a Suburban development and working in a very corporate office every day for the last 30 years. I'm not sure how that happened. I'm an unapologetic hunter and fisherman as well as a birder, naturalist, camper, runner, cyclist, and (maybe formerly) a triathlete. Those athletic things only started a few years ago when I was inspired (read that as horrified) by a picture my wife snapped of me at an archery tournament. I had the biggest belly there.
I love to write as well. I think the biggest disappointment for my Mom was that I did not pursue a career in writing but as a young man I had no idea how one went about earning a living writing. Now I entertain myself by prattling on and on via my blogs about my everyday adventures.
