Today so far had work then road. It’s not over yet, though. I’m crashing with a great friend of mine in Wichita tonight then making my way toward Austin tomorrow morning. I, of course, couldn’t make it without my lovely girlfriend so I owe a great deal to her. That said, I look forward to whipping her in some Settlers of Catan later tonight.

That sheep is all MINE!
