Just got back home to Chicago after spending the whole month of June gallivantin’ around the country. Spent two weeks in San Francisco, then hopped over to San Antonio to pick up my 11-year old nephew Thomas to take him on a trip to Yellowstone with my dad and his wife Joy. THAT was so much fun, I’ve never done anything like that in my life. We spent a week or so in Yellowstone, then I took Thomas back to San Antonio and just flew back to Chicago this evening. I had a BLAST but I am so so so SO tired of all the running around! It’s not over either; by the time 2006 is done I reckon I will have spent the better part of this year traveling. We’re in the process of booking another tour in Europe for later in the fall (a make-up tour for the one that got cancelled in May) and I’ll also be going to Australia, hopefully, before the year is through.
I’m getting myself ready for another big jump, too: I’m gonna be moving to San Francisco this summer! For awhile anyway. I want to live in Chicago, that’s my permanent home if I have one at all, but I’m going to SF for awhile and see what happens. Or the Bay Area somewhere down over by dere, we’ll see. Gotta scope out my options. And omigod I have sooo much crap to get rid of. So much work to do. Consequently I probably won’t be blogging much in the next few weeks, but I will post a bunch of pictures to my Flickr. Sorry I didn’t do very much work on that while I was gone; I had terrible problems on the road with my laptop, due to a bad memory card (which I can replace, thankfully). I had really spotty internet access too, and the fucker was running so slow (on only 128MB memory) that it wasn’t even worth the trouble to try to upload pictures since each one took like 10 minutes to fuck with. So I gave up and haven’t posted any of the Yellowstone pics yet. But I will! I have sooo many amazing pics to show you guys!!!!!
I wanna thank the following people for an unforgettably great month of June 2006: Wil, Thomas, Daddy & Joy, Lucie & Mark, Kate, Jody, Frank, AbbyG, Claud, Berge, Beth, Megan, Lorna & Vanessa, Karl, and the kind folks at KUSF. And Mr. PP!!! Oh how I love you Mr. PP… :-)
