Claude's Big Adventure: Disc Golf and Colonial Williamsburg

With today's blog I would like to introduce everyone to my friend Claude (You will see him in the following pictures). We had a big day plan and here are pictures from our big day.

First Stop, Newport News Disc Golf Course!

This was his first time Disc Golfing
While waiting for the other players we decided to get some practice.


Claude got a little excited during practice. By the way, Claude is Chlamydia.
Once everyone else joined us we got started.

Claude's First throw...not a very good sign.

The guy needed a break half way thru.
Claude came in last but it was his first game so that is expected and alright. We maintained our high spirits and met up with my girlfriend. Why got into our time machine and set the destination to Colonial Williamsburg!

Here we are crossing the Bridge of Time together!

Claude enjoying his Tavern Pretzel, our snack to hold off lunch.

Claude had a blast!
Due to it being a very windy day in the antiquarian town Claude's picture moments were very limited but Claude and I will have further adventures in the future!

Honestly, I really don't like my job but that is not accurate. My job is not that bad, it is the people that I work with and specifically it is certain aspects of them I have issues with. With these many factors I avoid showing 'aspects of Gwynn' which is pretty much shutting part of my self down but I try to find little ways to help keep my sanity.

One of them is wearing nail polish purely on my toes and buttons on my bag that they don't pay attention too or don't understand. My newest sanity fix is shoelaces, or more specifically changing out the shoelaces on my work-boots from the plain black to purple with sparkles.

Said Work-Boots with Improved Laces

As you can see, it is much improvement. They make me smile at work and that is grand. I got some flak for them for about five seconds but that has passed.  These laces made me so happy that they carried over to my everyday black sneakers but not with purple laces.

They are Glow in the Dark!
As the caption state, they are Glow in the Dark laces that color wise actually look rather fantastic with the black shoes! What a bonus and thank fully it had a bonus because the Glow part of these laces is kind of sad. It requires almost pitch black for them to be noticed and only when really looking directly at them.

All well, they were just a dollar and still look fantastic...along with the rare, "Are your laces glowing?!" That is its own satisfaction.

Like they say, it is the little things.

P.S. Bonus points to those that are playing if you spotted that my nWoD collection is behind the shoes and even more if you spotted the Games Workshop books.
