Charlottesville Police Department

Friday, June 25th, 2010

Those guys and women earned their keep today by manning just about every traffic signal in the city. A storm ripped through which I underestimated and took down trees everywhere. When trees go down, so do the power grids.

Anyhow, they had to not only direct traffic, but they seem to have thought through the traffic patterns and coned off lanes that led to more gridlock. I thought they chose smartly. They earned the speeding ticket for which I have yet to pay. Well done.

Kids

Wednesday, June 9th, 2010

For an absent father type, by which I mean I do not have day to day custody of my children, I was more than a little surprised at how optimistic I feel now as compared to an hour ago today. During that interval, I learned that my kids and their mother, have moved closer for a change. I kind of realized it was stress not being around them and I’m still not around that easily. But having the distance gap closed to about half of the original distance is like opening up shriveled lungs with a clean breath of air.
