Pictures of Our New Car

Tracy and I went for a drive all over King county in our new car: around Lake Sammamish to Snoqualmie Falls, through Kirkland and over to West Seattle along Alki beach. Along the way we took a few pictures of the car as you can see below.

New Car

September 23, 2005 Leave a comment

 Some time back I mentioned it’s time for car. Well, now I have that car: a 2005 (1/2) Audi A4 2.0T Manual in ocean blue. The 1/2 just means that the body style changed a little mid-year, a stepping stone for the 2006 models.

I’ll post pictures when I get the time, but it’s been extremely hectic at work. This weekend I’ll also start teaching Tracy how to drive manual. I think it’s good to know in case one ever needs to, and if you can drive a manual transmission you can drive any other car on the road.

Back from Nebraska

September 12, 2005 Leave a comment
Tracy and I got back from Nebraska Saturday night after seeing our new baby nephew and visiting friends and relatives. We didn’t get to see everyone, though.
We were out at my grandparents farm shooting blue rocks (well, orange rocks) and discovered that Tracy needs to shoot left-handed because she’s left-eye dominant. Both my grandpa and mother shoot that way, too, despite being right-handed. Once she switched was did much better and hit most of the targets. Below is a picture of Tracy shooting right-handed. I had her switch after that shot, having noticed she was always shooting off to the same side.
We saw Tracy’s grandma and aunt Thursday north of where my family and some of Tracy’s family live. We spent the day there except for a drive up to South Dakota to get some of our photos printed. We didn’t get as many as we wanted but the library machines were on a slow connection.
Friday we had a picnic with some more of Tracy’s family.
On Saturday is was back to the airport, but not before stopping first at Spaghetti Works in the Old Market in Omaha and meeting some of our friends from back in college. We had a good time and then had to get going.
700 emails later it’s time to get back to work.
