Stetson Hats!

Walking around Seattle I found an amazing store full of awesome hats! It had been years since I’d found a nice hat store and I enjoyed the visit. I even found my old hat made new! Trying on the hats I found myself easily noticing the difference between the affordable hats and the higher quality hats…and I liked the the best ones because of their light feel and quality construction.

The store owner and workers were great hosts as they helped me size my head, explained the colors and materials. They even sold one of my coworkers a hat while I dreamed of my own.

Oh I wanted to bring one home, but not in the budget this month! If I lived in Seattle I’d have one in my budget for sure!

I captured the photos using my Fujifilm X-20, and post processed in Snapseed. The little bugger is a decent travel camera and stayed with me all the time in my coat. It did not leave my side, and caught a few good photos along the way.

Wishing for My Someone

Last night I ran out with friends to grab a bite to eat and I was longing for my lovely wife to be with me. I knew she might enjoy the sights, sounds and a little treat…

Oh well just under 42 hours or so and I’ll be with her and the four little people I love so much! Time does make the heart grow fonder…but that happens to me after 8 hours at work! I hope when I retire from my second career I can merge family and work a little better.

PS X-20 with post in Snapseed. Fun composition. I did open up the shutter on purpose to get the movement of the cars. Snapsee continues to amaze me with fun tools and output.

Keep Working

The only thing between the almost two dozen of us and home is getting the job done….13-15 hours a day for the last nine days. Leadership works longer and harder than us little worker bees…and treats us fairly…so I am happy to be here learning more skills needed to be a better leader and supervisor back home.

So until I come up for air again….I hope you like this little bit of Seattle.
