backyard magic

January 13, 2013

It was about this time last year that I returned from a bit of a sabbatical. Last year I needed some time away, cuz like Peter Cetera says, “everybody needs a little time away.”

This year, I got lazy and thought the newfangled short form would suffice as an outlet. So I’ve spent some time on Facebook and Twitter (and Instagram–although, I’m not giving up on Instagram cuz it’s awesome. I commit to keeping my dog pictures on Instagram).

Turns out, Facebook and Twitter suck. That could be the grumpy old man in me talking.

Anyway. Enough old man ruminating about how letter writing is a lost art. Today’s feature is a video of Holden trying tricks in the backyard. We used to build tube runs and sled tracks in the backyard, but the kids growed up. Now it’s all kickers and stuff.

Holden is trying to perfect the switch 360 and the 540. I’m trying to get my 300 down. I think I’m just about there.

    Quoting the classical philosophers now, huh?

    Thanks for the heads up on facebook & twitter. I’ve heard of them and everything, but didnt really want to commit the bandwidth.

    Dang that’s a lot of snow!
