There’s even a sign that announces you have reached the sight of the mythical tavern from Good Will Hunting.

Louis is a White’s Tree Frog. He’s calm, cute, and doesn’t make a lot of noise. Congress could take a lesson.

And the snow angel would have worked better in less than three feet of snow. I’m up on a drift, and I thought “hey, how hard can it be? You just fall backwards and do it.”

I do commercial inspections for a living. It was a job I kind of fell into. It didn’t take any special training: a good eye for detail, the ability to take reasonable photographs, and some writing skills. I used to work at a “real” job many years ago, and was laid off after September 11 killed the industry. I decided I was never going to work for someone again. So, I took up mystery shopping. Now that was fun! I enjoyed it, and it felt worthwhile. “Giving the customer eye view” I always called it.

Then somehow, it gave way into becoming a commercial field inspector. I have no idea to this day how, but I like that too. I get to go places no one goes and see stuff no one sees. This job is the least fun in January and February, however. That’s when I get to enjoy things like 9 degrees and on the road before 9AM. No one wants to see stuff like this.

The other problem with my job (and this is a year round issue) is that, being self employed, my boss is seriously mean to me.
