For the last few weeks I've been sifting through thousands of photos on my hard drive.  I'm doing a lot of tagging (adding location information, keywords and facial recognition) and it's really time consuming.  But it's a great way to zone out in the evenings while listening to a ball game and enjoying a cup of tea.

I took this near Garfield, Washington near my mother-in-law's parent's house. It's an absolutely unique and beautiful part of the state. Underrated.I snapped this while my lady was at the wheel driving past the Tetons at 60 mph. It remains a favorite of mine.Another blast from the past. I took this at dusk on the state's most beautiful beach: Shi Shi. I need to go back.That's about all I can muster for the time being.  The kids are on what feels like day 29 of the flu and despite my best efforts at turning in early last night, I awoke at 12:20 bright-eyed and bushy-tailed.  Two episodes of The Wire later, I tried going back to sleep.  J.J. was up at 4:30 as usual, and...I'd say this rest is history...but it's not.  It's everyday around here for the foreseeable future.

If someone has the antidote to the virus that staining our carpets and sofa.  Please hand it over.
