Land of Enchantment
Posted at 12:13 PM


With DC behind us, we ready for a romp in Vegas starting this Saturday. The annual shred tradeshow is going down, and I gotta go down there to thank all the clients for everything. And gamble. And drink like a pig. And chow down. One last time. The thing is moving to Denver next year, so, shit gets “real business like” next year, and this is a chance to enjoy gluttony one more time.

I don’t drink too much, so, a couple “ass pocket nights” are in order. Big plans.

I’m heading down early to work on Union stuff with my brother “Italian Marty.” You better have yer “A Game” on, buddy. I’m coming in hot.

THE DESERT, VIA BAVARIA: Europe’s very own Uwe Maier sent the image in above. Many thanks. New Mexico is known as the “Land of Enchantment” and I’ve criss-crossed the state a couple times over the years. Pretty terrain. Nice people. Great license plate, too.

PRETTY SLICK: Rainer Spehl’s incredible laptop case. (Thanks, Dan!)

THOSE REDCOATS SURE KNOW HOW TO DO IT: “British Design Classics stamps by Royal Mail.” (Thanks to Orvillee for tipping us off on this one.)

THIS SHIT NEVER GETS OLD: All sorts of dachshund stuff here. Just wait until they meet gary, who, as these words go to print, is sitting right here on my lap, shivering and eyeballing me. File this stuff under: “Cute Alert.” Maybe a little too cute for us, right Gary? He concurs.

GOLDEN PIXELS: Jim Golden updates and man, there are some pretty serious characters in there. Not to be missed.
