I’ll be leaving IBM at the end of the month and starting a cool new adventure with a great organization. I’m really excited about the opportunity for growth, and looking forward to jumping in with both feet. To all those I’ve worked with over the years at Big Blue, my sincere thanks for the collaboration and friendship. I’ve learned from each of you, and wish you all the best in the future. Here’s to new horizons!
Just south of Denver, is the Cherokee Ranch and Castle – one of those hidden gems that you miss unless you go looking for it. The castle sits on top of a mesa, overlooking the whole front range (I’ll share a sunset pano sometime soon). We had the chance to go visit for the Elk rut a few weeks ago, and along the road were a huge flock of turkeys. We’ve seen them around the area before, but there were dozens out at dusk, all feeding in the field.
So in honor of the season, here’s one that got away. Happy Thanksgiving!
We lost Truffles this week. He was our sweet springer spaniel, a two year old heart in a 13 year old body. Feisty and sweet, easy going and fierce. Our cats are sleeping on the dog bed, waiting for him to come by to snuggle, and our golden is running upstairs to find him (and then promptly forgetting about it and bringing down a shoe instead). I’ll miss him on the cold winter days when he’s not there to warm my feet under the desk. Rest in peace old friend, and don’t chase too many squirrels.
