Ruby was diagnosed with advanced stage osteosarcoma and a bone fracture on April 15, 2013. She’d been suffering from what the vet thought was arthritis and hip dysplasia for about a month. Her suffering ended on April 16, 2013. She’s gone to a happy place in the sky. She is survived by her older sister, Sage; owners’, Mike, Zack, and Garrett; and many close friends and family members. She was loved and will be missed by many.
I’m all registered and ready for An Event Apart – Seattle. An Event Apart is the design conference for people who make Web sites.
It will be my first time in Seattle, so wish me luck. I’m not a fan of clouds and rain, so I’m crossing my fingers the April showers adage, doesn’t apply in Seattle.
If you’re in Seattle, let me know, so we can meet up! The conference runs April 5-7, but I’m coming to Seattle April 2, to ensure I have time to explore the city.

Over the Labor Day weekend, Mike L. and I decided to take a last-minute road trip to Minneapolis. We had three goals for the trip.
- Visit my old friend Brian and meet his partner, Brandon.
- Purchase new bedroom furniture at Ikea.
- Check out Minneapolis day and night life.
Some photos from our adventures are included below.
