Another year, another Easter.  This year it was brunch at Sand Point CC with the Johnstons; followed by an Easter egg hunt; golf lessons for Reese at the UW; and dinner at the Gouks.  A few photos:

Yesterday I joined my friends Mike and Shelly Miksis for the 31st running of the Big Climb Seattle.  The general gist: thousands of folks walk/run Columbia Center’s stairs — from floors 4 to 73, to be exact — to raise money for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.   It was my second Big Climb — because it sells out so fast, I last did it in 2013.   This outing was particularly special because Mike Miksis is currently battling lymphoma — quite successfully I might add.

My 6’5″ neighbor appears to be doing better in his battle with cancer than I’m doing with mine with Father Time: my 12:12 time was 40 seconds slower than my 2013 time.  That was T328/2754 overall; T288/1380 males; and 25/146 males age 45-49.  Not bad, but trending in the wrong direction.  All that really matters, though, is that Mike is trending in the right direction.  Next year we climb not for Mike the battler but Mike the survivor.

Yesterday my buddy Peter Fessler and I officially kicked off the 2017 golf season.  The location — Chambers Bay.  The time: 8:42 am.

We may want to rethink the tee time for next year.  Because it was cold.  Very cold.   Winds blew from the north at 25-30 mph and they were, predictably, quite chilly.  By about the 2nd hole I declared I’d be happy with a 90 in the conditions.  I struck the ball fantastically but pitched and putted like a blind man.  My 85 beat my goal by 5 shots but was considerably worse than it should have been had I been able to putt and chip at all.

Still, a good day with a good friend.  Things could be worse.

Another year, another father-daughter dance at Sand Point Country Club.

She’s growing up WAY too fast.

Last night, the Jenkins family ventured downtown.  Our destination: the Space Needle.  The reason: our tenth anniversary, and we brought the kids along with us.

It was my first time up in the Needle in about thirty-plus years.  Neither the kids nor Rhonda had ever been there.

Dinner was excellent if a bit pricey.  I passed on the $99 filet.

Whistler 2017

Last year, my buddy Simon bought a quarter share condo at the Evolution building in Creekside, Whistler.

This past weekend, Reese and I joined him and his daughter, Paige, there.

Two days of epic skiing.  We didn’t exactly nail it in the photo department, but we did manage a few:
