January 1, 2015.
           The last two months of 2014 were busy. Accessions, Deeds of Gift, writing policy and procedures, lab inspections, preparing for risk assesment, documenting exhibit construction, completing our 10 year comprehensive artifact inventory, photographing new acquisitions, images for research publications, working on manuscripts, throw in a little fossil preparation, identification, cataloging, and trying to find time to finish my dissertation. I know everyone is just about as busy as I am. It looks like 2015 is going to be very, very busy.
            I took off Christmas break to go visit my brother and sister's families. The drive to Port Aransas and back was harrowing with freezing rain when I left and heavy ice and snow on the way back. This was only the second Christmas break I have taken off work since 2003. In 2007, Gretchen Gürtler and I took off and spent four days in the Big Bend. Since then, it has just been work over the holidays.
            I haven't had much time for art lately, but it looks like that is going to improve.
