What an exciting and tiring Sunday. So what’s so special about today, beside being a beautiful clear day? Well, I went to wakeboarding with Terry, Tim, and Neal. Terry and Neal are both co-workers from the PUD. Mohan was going to join us, but something came up and he has business to attend to. Sorry, Mohan, you missed out. So we went to Moses Lake, rode by the sand dune’s area and had a small picnic on the boat. While we where having the picnic, I saw 4 or 5 fish jumps. It reminded me of Lake Martin in Alabama. After the quick picnic, I wakeboarded a little. Yep, I finally figured out how to get up on top of the water!!! whoo hoo. I might have some pictures coming soon. Anyway… later we went to visit Neal’s lot and just had a great time on the lake. Wakeboarded some more… oh .. and I performed my first face plant.

Face Plant” — The action where the wakeboarder or skier falls face first into the water.

Yes … it hurts… it felt like my brain was rattling inside my skull. So … after about 5 hours on the lake … I was burn out and ready to go home.

I bet tomorrow… my body will be sore!!!


The morning started pretty early, I went to pick up Hsiu Hsiu around 7:30 and we all headed out to Lake Martin around 8:00. We spend most of the morning fishing under the bridge in Lake Martin, and my bad luck with fishing continues. Everyone caught a fish except for me. My dad told me how easy it is to fish in Lake Martin, but since last year, every time I go, I have not caught a single fish. Man, I suck. Lunch was pretty cool; we parked our boat on the dock and walked up the stairs to a restaurant next to the lake. After lunch we continue to fish, and I gave up and decided to sleep on the boat instead. I tell you, sleeping on the boat with a cool breeze is awesome. So finally around 4 we headed home. When we got home, I finally watched the Chinese movie Hero. It was pretty good but pretty much everything was already done before and the store line was little bit more complicated than most American can understand. Dinner was wonderful, my mom cooked couple of the fish we caught today� ok, everyone else caught except for me. After dinner, we watched another Chinese movie that I brought back and it concluded another wonderful and fun fill day�. I tell you � time flies by too fast� and tomorrow we�ve got to start packing up for Hsiu Hsiu.



Well, so it is day after Thanksgiving, we decided to head to Lake Martin and do some fishing. It was cold but we had alot of fun. Johnson got to get a chance to see some of the Alabama’s beautiful landscape and weather. What is funny is one hour in to our trip to the lake, I got a call from NCC saying that the West Monroe node’s router is out. Which means, that all locations connected to that location is down. That is really no big deal because the dial backup system I put in not too long ago should have kicked in. After a few minutes of debugging on the lake, I was about ready to head back. Luckly, my boss, Terry, was way ahead of the game and fix exactly what I was going to fix. Well, it is a perfect fix, but it is a fix that will not require any call out. That is a good thing. I am sure we will get to discuss alot about it on Monday, but mean while the pipeline is getting their data… which is a very good thing.

So how is your day?
