added July 4, 2014: I noticed that this never got published. I’m not sure why not, but my first guess is that I was still working on it a bit at a time. Well, even without the wreck, I wouldn’t be able to remember the emotional details that I was shooting for. So, I’m just going to come up with an approximate date and go ahead and publish it. –Jeff

I’ve been trying to figure out how to write about my recent awesome vacation to San Francisco. I realized that if I concentrated on what I did, it would sound like an elementary school report.

Just over 2 years ago, I posted here about an old friend I had gotten back in touch with after many years. This last week while I was on vacation Amy helped me get a picture that’s about 18 years in the making:

I’ve been totally sitting on this one for over a week. I wanted to make sure it was going to work out before I announced it, and as of tonight it’s official. I’m now a baritone in the Huntsville Master Chorale.

What started out yesterday as just a good day is turning into a peach of a weekend. The best new news is that the uberwagon is finally home! Total time in the shop: 5 and a half weeks. I’ll write that up in another post soon. The short story: the long wait was annoying and undesirable but justified.

Don’t you love it when you have a day when something especially nice happens that brightens your whole outlook? I’m having one of those. 🙂
