First Father's Day
A day or two late, I also want to give a shout out to my Dad(s)! Yes, strange year this one... not only am I celebrating Father's Day as a father, but I have a new one as well.... my father-in-law! I am a very lucky guy having access to 2 men that are both incredibly intelligent with great advice, but also lucky enough that their expertise don't lap one anothers' too much.... so I have even more unique expertise to draw from! Looking forward to seeing them both soon... my Dad up at the Nutshell for our annual camping trip, and then my Pa-in-Law out west when we fly out for Yvonne (Kim's sister) and Steve's wedding in July. Looking forward to both! :)
What's new with me? Still on the hunt for some work while enjoying family time with Kim & Alice. While trying to "find" work, there's a lot of opportunity to create work. Although I'm keeping all details under wraps for now, there may be more to this story in the coming months. If you're curiosity is peaked, contact me in private. Well... not too much to report since last time (I don't think....). A couple industry conferences and some awesome opportunity to network with some very smart folks, but other than that... status quo. Hope all's well with all of you! Cheers!
VMware Certified... again :)
And in other news, I have been keeping busy with my photography (argeeimages.ca). A weekend ago, I shot headshots for a dozen or so people that are attending the ProTrack Speaker's Academy with Kim. I offered up my photography services at a heavily reduced rate as a promotion to drum up some referral business for Argee Images, while at the same time building upon my experience and portfolio. Speaking of which... I really should add some of the new shots to my portfolio. All in good time I guess...
Last Wednesday, Kim, Alice & I headed up to the Nutshell (AKA our property up north) to get out of the city for a while. We stayed until Sunday and Alice was great! Now that Alice is here, I didn't think I'd get a chance to go up often, but after this past trip, I think we'll be able to make it just as often as last year, if not more! :) For some pictures, check out the entry I posted on TheGirards.com.
Well, early morning tomorrow. I've got to get up around 5:30 to try and make it to the VMware event for 7am. Since my job hunt continues, this may be a good opportunity to make some connections and do some good old fashioned networking. That's all for now... hope you're all keeping well!
