Officer Busby

July 28, 2012 Leave a comment

When walking through Denny Park, Busby and I sometimes see Officer Tracy taking her lunch or dinner break. She really likes Busby, so I figured it was time for some photos. I tried to have him sit next to the car, but she said it would be great to get a picture of him in the car.

I assumed this meant the back seat, but no; she got out of the car and had him sit in the driver’s seat! As you can tell, he didn’t really want to be there, so he quickly jumped through the window to escape the police car.

As Busby was considering his career options, Officer Tracy and I chatted about the safety improvements in the park over the last few years. I assumes that means she was doing her job by chatting to me about the neighborhood as we entertained Busby.

Tattoos, Sharks and Race Cars in Atlanta

July 21, 2012 Leave a comment

I’ve been in Atlanta this week for our annual Microsoft sales meeting/event. This means meetings, meetings and more meetings. When not in meetings, I was at parties with co-workers. There was very little sleep involved, because as you can see, the parties were fun and I didn’t want to miss out on any of it. At one of the parties, I tried out a spray-on tattoo for the night (people said they liked it and I was the only one to have it painted on my neck), I saw some wildlife at the aquarium, sat in a race car just because it was there and saw Maroon 5 and Bon Jovi in concert. I’ve never been to an outdoor concert when it started pouring rain on the crowd, but that made it even more entertaining. It dumped on us for about 20 minutes during the Bon Jovi set and since it was a warm Atlanta downpour, that meant that everyone was completely drenched. I hope my clothes dry before I pack them and catch my flight home in the morning.

I just landed in Atlanta, Georgia in time for a massive downpour. Got in a taxi and told him my hotel and as we pulled away he said OK and handed me his GPS to program. I’ve never experienced that before!
Thankfully I had the address with me (always be prepared) and figured out how his GPS worked, which had UK terms on it, not American. I wonder how he got his hands on it, but as long as I make it to the hotel I won’t care (I’m in the taxi as I type this).

I Saw A Flying Guppy

Yesterday, while out for a walk, I looked up and saw a beast of a plane flying over Seattle. As I learned later (from Mike, our pilot friend), it was the Super Guppy. It flew into Seattle while delivering the space shuttle trainer to the Museum of Flight.
