I’ve got friends in snow places

Okay, it’s a lame title, but my day has been centered around the blizzard conditions in and around the metro Denver area.  With some areas near where I live experiencing whiteouts, we had a fun time of things today wit traffic, early closures, and the whole 9 yards.  Tracy actually was the one who took the day off ahead of schedule (smart gal that wife of mine) and then braved the elements to come pick me up after the mass transit shut down service to my parking place.

After a fender bender of her own – we finally got home in one piece (but not the car).  Of course, in the midst of all of this, our dog Maggie was just happy as could be frolic-ing in the snow.  Props to Tracy for having the idea to take a few snaps!


But, all is not fun and games in Bronco/Rocky Mountain land.  I’ve been helping a friend work through a bad time, and things just took a turn for the worse with him a few days ago.  Let me set the stage here for hyou.  Imagine you are a Photoshop/Adobe guru.  You know the crap outta all things Adobe.  Working in the industry for roughly ten years.  Now, imagine the company hiring some young gun.   You’ve been asked to train a new guy, then after four months or so of teaching a wet-behind-the-ears newb how to do things, you get laid off.

You knew that was coming right?  Well, now, imagine this:  as work becomes more and more challenging to find (despite the fact that you have practically every Adobe certification that exists), your beloved pet comes down with a time-sensitive medical issue that requires surgery to fix.  And you have no dollaz to pay it!  That, my friends, is no picnic.  Yet that is exactly what happened to my good friend David Zarzacki.  Finally, after some pushing from me, he’s set up a blog to explain the status with his pet, and Paypal links for donations.  He’s had some very generous contributions, but is still only about a third of the way to having enough for the vet bills.  (It’s surgery, after all, which isn’t ever all that cheap to begin with!)

So, please, today, take a moment and stop over to the blog to help save Mojo!  Make a contribution, even if it’s only a dollar or two.  And if you can’t contribute financially, then help spread the word by making a Twitter post, or a comment on your own blog – heck even just comments, thoughts, and prayers are welcome.  Every little bit helps!

Anyway, enough of the friends and snow places – I’ve rambled enough for the week.  I’ll leave off with the link to Mojo’s site.  Happy Shooting all and we’ll see you back here on Monday!  Have a great weekend:

Thanks in advance to all that take the time to visit, share their thoughts, prayers, and contributions.

    I heard about the weather there on the radio, and immediately thought of you. Sorry to hear about the fender bender! Keep warm.
