Around this time of year, I need to remind myself that winter doesn’t last forever. These scenes are from the garden at my mother’s house, planted by its original owner, Wayne de la Rua — Baldwin county’s first Master Gardener. Much of it was destroyed by Hurricane Ivan, but I’m happy that we captured a few pieces of it in photos.
Automattic’s Team Social came to visit New Orleans for a team meetup, and I had the pleasure of crashing it over the weekend.
For my birthday a few friends and family took me to the “casino” in Atmore for a fancy supper. The food was good enough to make up for how much money I lost. The number of different ways you can brand a video bingo machine is insane.
