• Day 78: Wearing Regular (GASP) Shoes Today

    Last night was a crazy severe thunderstorm in my neck of the metroplex. Rather than face the world with soggy feet and a bitter heart (the inevitable result of cold, soggy feet), I chose to rebel! That’s right, I wore REGULAR shoes! Wow. How exciting. I’m a regular extreme sports spontaneous kind of guy. Who doesn’t […]


  • Day 50: Daniel Versus the Rocky Beach

    We drove down to Key West yesterday to see what we could see. As expected, parking was a bit of a beast.

  • Check Out My Daily Five Fingers Journal
