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.

Once again back in New Orleans
For the second year in a row, Judy and I are working the Ochsner Ironman 70.3 New Orleans half-Ironman triathlon this weekend. We arrived very late last night (OK, early this morning). We're tickled to work with some of the best in the triathlon business, with Bill as race director, Ashley as the person who runs it ALL, Dave who is the very best professional announcr in all of triathlon, Adam and Roberto making sure that transition is tight, Carl keeping the water crew in check, Brian and Phil taking care of the motos, and Scott being the ace timing dude that he is.
After PEM's fabulous VIP party at Le Phare, Judy and I strolled down Bourbon Street, and you see the spoils: That woman is shameless when it comes to begging for beads!
Tomorrow (Saturday) will bring more meetings and indoctrinations (refs and penalty tent volunteers) and an early bedtime since Sunday morning looms ominously with a 4:45 a.m. opening of transition. Still, it's fun to be head ref!!!
