All In a Day's Work...


Sometimes work (as a secret agent, pilot, tutor, and bodyguard to one of the top five scientific minds in the world) takes me to interesting places...

The color did not come out in the pic, but each residence was...well...I don't think the Home Owner's Association in the US would approve of the color schemes.  To the left was a wall separating the barrio from the government funded assisted living facility.  The government funded assisted living facility was huge, well constructed...and empty...while the neighborhood residences were packed.  I don't know if that is good (i.e. families taking care of their own, rather than the government) or bad, but it was yet another display of how government can't solve problems.  

I took a photo of a co-worker because his wife had just given birth and I thought years from now the kid might like to see what his Dad was doing the week after he was born.  Then he took a photo of me.

Finger straight along the frame until you have made the decision to shoot...


When they fly you to foreign locations to grab very bad guys, they don't fly you first class - sometimes you ride with the gear, and sometimes you eat expired MREs, and are "on" for 24 or 36 hours at a time, in 90% humidity...

...and then when you go back to the hotel, you can BARELY even see the beach from your room! C'mon man!


You can't see Ruth's Chris Steakhouse from here...but it was within walking distance...

It's a tough job, but I'm glad you're at the pointy end of the spear!

Woodworking is much easier.

Do NOT like your fashion statement, too drab and bulky. Need more color and to be form fitting to show off you build. The pool is wasted on you. Bet you didn't even go to Ruth's Cris either. HAHAHAHAH

Faith Koop is right: I'd suggest a light pink or at the very least purple zebra stripes with baby blue background color.
