Rich's latest and greatest adventures

For all who haven't heard yet, we are moving to Galveston, TX to make a fresh start on my residency. In the mean time both Jennie and I have taken up temporary employment. Jennie is working for Xceligent a commercial real-estate research firm as a field agent. The first thing that came to me was a night watchman job.

On my first night I came across a 5 foot long pit viper rattling its ominous tail and reared up ready to strike me if I crossed its comfort zone. The picture is of the calmed down snake from about 10 feet away behind a stone pillar. John has since named my new friend suaria. I haven't seen him again but I am much more wary coming around corners now.

The other picture here is of my automobile accident which took place on the last day of my being an Air Force Officer. It was just one of those days.

Popsicles at Great Grandma H's House

At Sizzler with Grandpa Donaldson

On our last day in Utah for the holidays (before our 22 hour drive home) Grandpa Donaldson took us out for lunch with Mom and Dad and Emma and Mike. Doesn't he look great. We loved our time with the family, and we miss them terribly.

More racing


Cousin David


David and Adah, I think, had the most fun of everyone. David probably went down about a hundred times.

Don't miss the pictures of the Grandmas below

Great exercise for all of us. Here is Jennie dragging the sled which was usually occupied by John or me.


John, apparently not recognizing the sensitivity of electronic equipement to water, plasters dad with a snowball on camera.


Dad and John


We couldn't even get Lila near a sled, for fear, but she did like dressing up for the cold.

I guess John was a little sick of holiday photos by this time. We love you Grandma. Thank you for all your support and love.
