Why the Redwood Forest slideshow?

Judy had always loved trees, and in 2008 we spent some time among the California Redwoods. Some of the ingredients in Judy's chemo cocktail were derived from trees (not Redwoods but Yews). We always knew that Judy loved the trees, and the trees got their chance to repay her affection.

Might as well have some fun with the blog for once, despite another round of chemo today. Look at that ham: Can you smell it? Can you taste it? This baby was in the backyard smoker for hours on end, and it was just perfect.

Judy and I had a nice Easter weekend at home, and the ham dinner on Sunday night—polished off with some good Cameron Hughes wine—was the fitting finale. Of course, a huge ham like this is not eaten in one sitting, and now we (=mainly I) enjoy smoked ham sandwiches. Yummy!

Otherwise, life's rolling right along. Judy stays busy at work, I've taken on yet another freelance job (it's about time that I get done with Tech!), and next weekend we'll be in Ft. Davis to help officiate one of Texas' most spectacular road races. The treatments that Judy has to endure are no source of great enjoyment, but she never complains. Right now she is enjoying some knitting-cum-television time while I have been mopping up odds and ends.

You won't hear either one of us complain—especially as long as there's some ham left in the fridge!
