Pictures from January, 2015

Soon after the New Year began, the weather
became wickedly cold for about two weeks, then gradually warmed up,
with an occasional blast of Winter. It was weird.

Unfortunately for the dog, Amos was ordered out of the house by
our doctor so Alissa could breathe better. He made the rounds for a month amongst every
family household in town. Sad, but necessary. Luckily, the snowboarding trip was coming up...

The obligatory Christmas Lights photo... again...
One last look.
It was COLD!!

Alissa left the "good camera" at home this time and
took only the GoPro©... between the numerous members in their party, they each took turns
wearing the little wonder camera on either chest harness or on helmets. During the week-long trip,
Uncle Dan unfortunately broke his arm, but Alissa topped Peak 8 in the Tenmile Range, and did great!

Sunnier day today!

Too soon, all too soon, the week of snowboarding was over.
Back to a mundane daily existence... but then we had a great moment of excitement when
a freezing fog happened!... Okay, actually, only my life is mundane enough to be excited about weather...

Taylor decided to move to Laramie instead of living in the dorm
at University of Wyoming... in this way he could keep his dog Amos with him, and Amos would
truly have a home. With Grampa Freeman's help, Alissa & I, along with Taylor's friend Jordan, assisted Taylor
with his big relocation. It turned out to be one of the windiest days ever in memory...

Surprised with a
birthday Kake!
26 January 2015

As the month tumbled to a close, I had a nice couple of cakes for
my 55th birthday: a fine Jello cake from Alissa, and a professionally-done "Mountain Vista" cake from Kara.

And I put on 3 pounds.
