Today, we had to be put Jake to sleep. We were privileged to take care of him for over 16 years. Jake was unquestioningly loyal and protective. A wizard with the frisbee, as a young dog, he could leap over 5 feet in the air and run faster than we could throw it. Jake was […]
On Saturday, October 19th, Richie, Robert, and I completed our 7th annual Memphis Walk, where we start at the cobblestones in downtown Memphis, at the Mississippi River, at sunrise and walk in a general direction (usually east-ish) until sunset. The day started off cloudy, cool, and a bit rainy, and it stayed cool and cloudy […]
Beautiful weather and smooth sailing.
It is going to be a great weekend…
Best show at the Shell I’ve ever attended. A great way to start the season!
Katherine and I are so proud of him!
Katherine won an “award” from a couple of students in her department, which they took it on themselves to manufacture. Pretty funny.
Ethan and Jacob (brothers on each end of the line) advance a year.

I’ve got a pretty awesome partner/wife/spouse/best friend, but sometimes it takes reading one of her articles to realize all that she does and how deeply she thinks. To that end, take a few minutes and catch up with the recently published Engaged Pedagogy and Neighborhood Change in South Memphis by Katherine Lambert-Pennington.
This was the view before I started my last run of the day. Gorgeous!
We’re enjoying almost perfect conditions today. Jeff, Scott, Larry, and I are carving up the Nevada side.
We all had breakfast at the Driftwood Cafe (a tradition), and then Larry and I hit the slopes, tearing up the California side. Now, we are on the Nevada side, warming up in the lodge. Outside, it is about 12 degrees and blowing hard. Near perfect snow, though!

As in previous years (2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011), we met at the cobblestones of the Mississippi River in downtown Memphis at sunrise and started walking in a general direction. This year, we kept an almost due-east track, ending […]
