Memories of 2008

This is one of those weeks where I can’t think of anything to write about. At those times, I like to take a trip down memory lane. This week, we will look at 2008. That was a very good year for me, I would say one of my best.

The sign speaks for itself.

This is the Mendenhall Glacier near Juneau, Alaska. I returned to this spot last year, by the way.

This is Roberta McCain, mother of John McCain. You could see I was rather heavy that year. I currently weigh about 25 pounds less. Picture taken in Naples, Florida.

Eternity II Puzzle

I was very obsessed with the Eternity II Puzzle the summer of 2008. Here I am with four of the smaller practice puzzles, which I did solve, and many pages of notes and printouts. To this day, the puzzle remains unsolved.

Grand Canyon

My friends at Bodog were kind enough to treat me to a helicopter trip to the Grand Canyon. Here is a shot I took of Hoover Dam. Note the bridge was still in the early stages of construction. The water level was significantly higher too than today.

That woman behind me in Sydney seemed to think I was a raving loon for taking a picture of myself.

Fortune teller in Sydney

I’m a pretty skeptical person. However, out of curiosity, I had this fortune teller in Sydney give me a reading. She correctly stated:

  • I have three kids, two girls and a boy, with the boy in the middle.
  • I own two houses.
  • I am somehow involved with numbers as a profession.
  • A personal bit of information about my wife, which I won’t publish here.

All of this was 100% correct. I am not omitting any incorrect predictions either, as there were none. After this stunning opener, she went onto the usual vague statements that are true of most people.

I hope you enjoyed this trip to 2008 half as much as I did.

I’d like to give a little plug to LunaPic for the face blurring feature in some photos.

Until next week, may the odds be in your favor.
