my back yard

over the past couple weeks the train company has been replacing the railroad tracks in my back yard. it hasnt been a problem at all, they are no louder than the trains that pass through all the time. when they replaced all the wooded rail ties they just piled them up in my back yard. i thought it looked kind of cool, so i took a picture.

ronnie and me

not the best of quality pic, but this is ronnie martin, the man who is 'joy electric'


poor matt, he fall down go boom!

school stuff

here are a few pictures from the past few weeks at school. this first one was from the annual auction that the school holds. each year it is a huge success and regularly collects more than 100,000 bucks! this year there was a really great deal that i tried to bid on, but the auctioneer stopped the bidding too early- i would have gotten a really nice 7.1 megapixel camera for only $225! oh well, theres always next year...
this second picture was from our service day that we started this year. i went out with about 4 guys and we cleaned up a local park. it was a lot of fun and a great way to spend a day away from class!
