Wow, some things never change. McCallie and MLK may be two way, and downtown may have lots of new development (I like the way the new addition to the Hunter Museum connects to the Walnut Street Bridge, but did they have to give the architect quite that much leeway?), but Chaco and Eddie still run the coffee shop, KZ106 hasn't changed their playlist one bit ("I'm hot / sticky sweet / from my head / to my feet"), and although Jeff Styles has shorter hair, his show remains the same. It's amazing how much I connect with Chattanooga, and yet... I could see moving back, but it's an entirely different world from Northern California, and the reasons I left and the reasons I'd come back are all pretty much what they were a decade ago when I left.

Congrats to Mike and Nancy, sometime soon I'm going to have to come back and just spend some more time hanging out with cool people, and taking the time to plan get-togethers with all of the people I don't have an opportunity to connect with this time.

A week just hanging out and talking, with breaks to raft the Ocoee, ride the train, go hang out and watch the clouds with occasional human dangling from aluminum and nylon, walk out to Edward's Point, go boulder around Sunset Rock... And then a few days down in Atlanta to meet up with all the folks who've left but didn't go that far... Yeah, I need to talk Charlene into that for a vacation.

Regretably was in Dallas this past weekend and had to miss the wedding bliss (sure Mike was grinning ear-to-ear).

Same here on the Chattanooga thing...with the current merger mania I thought this would be a good time for me to pull-up shop and head to Chattanooga...tried looking around for a month or so and just haven't been able to justify. Really, really like it up there but...not yet it seems.

Hell, with current merger (what merger...they BOUGHT our asses) it's starting to sound like Texas may be in the works yet again...

Finally got online and finished up the thumbnailing for some wedding pics. Not sorted, rotated or anything else, we've been busy snorkelling in the Dry Tortugas, Key West, paddling wetlands.. camping on the beach, Miami Beach.. see this link for a -LOT- of pictures, including balloon shots by Eric.
