Aikido players:

Randy, John, Adam, Willie, Tabitha, and Rodrigo


Just the basic slaps, plus a few falls. 

The Walk:

Two times


None for me tonight


Worked with Adam on Koryu Dai Yon - Tanto Dori


None of note.


Volleyball, 1-2

Played against Notorious D. I. G.  Most of the team was out, so we had a lot of subs.  4 women and me.  I'd left my shorts and shirt at home, so I had to play in business casual.

We did amazingly well the first game and then fell apart.

Aikido Thursday Night - 7/14/16

Aikido players:

John, Adam, Laura, Willie, Tabitha, Rodrigo, and Bao


Just the basic slaps, plus a few falls. 

The Walk:

Three times

Noe for me tonight


Worked with Adam on Koryu Dai Yon


None of note.


Volleyball, 0-3

Played against Hot Mess and we got shellacked.

I didn't make it to the gym until midway through the 2nd game.  This was the first time I'd drive straight from the new job to Gilruth and I did not allow enough time.  It did not help that I was blocked by a train for a while, though.

Texas Art Supply for D-rings
Finally put an angle on the ends of our truck ramp boards

Reading of Blood of Dragons


Books read - 1/1/2016 - 6/30/2016

38 books over the past 6 months.  I don't know if the next 6 months will be as fruitful since I drive all of 20 minutes to work now instead of commuting by bus for 30 minutes.

The only books from this group that I did not like were the Ed Greenwood works.  I won't be seeking out any more in that world.  I think it has to do with the main character getting carried along on the ride as opposed to actively working.
