1187 Hunterwasser

Yes, I'm not only a Trail Nerd, but I'm also a "Blade" Nerd. For Christmas, I got the Blade Runner "Final Cut" DVD. My wife also had a wonderful photo of my dog, my grandson and me framed. It was a professional photo that we had taken last year. It holds special significance, because my dog was recently diagnosed with terminal cancer.

Since my grandson was having Christmas morning with his other family members, and my wife was working, I scheduled a Trail Nerd run at 8 a.m. One Newbie Nerd (Janelle) and an out-of-towner-ultrarunner (Rob Newcomer) showed up to run 9 or 10 miles in the crunchy snow. It was a good way to start getting into the Christmas spirit.

I went home, took a hot bath, and took my time cleaning up the house while listening to Blues music, and getting ready for the day. My two grown kids came over at about noon, and started cooking Christmas dinner for us...what a treat! And these kids know how to cook. It was an awesome meal.

My grandson was dropped off at our house at about 5 p.m. We opened presents and of course, he was spoiled rotten by all of us. What a great Christmas! I hope all of you had a good holiday, too.

I'm sorry to hear about fester, too. Dang-it. I listened to an interview with Ridley Scott on NPR a few days back about the re-re-issue. Interesting Character....would probably fit in well with the nerds.

I just required some information and was searching on Google for it. I visited each page that came on first page and didn’t got any relevant result then I thought to check out the second one and got your blog. This is what I wanted!
