Things That Go Ping in the Night

I woke up this morning without my wedding band on. I went to bed with it on, but when I woke up it was gone. While I was hunting through my covers trying to find it, I vaguely recollected hearing a small *ping* sometime in the night. I started hunting around the room and, sure enough, there was my ring sitting innocently in the far corner of our bedroom. That ring is so grounded.

New Movie: Fat's Hill

Liz and I had a great day this weekend on Fat’s Hill up Logan Canyon. Fat’s is one of those backcountry spots where the people are few and the skiing is always good! Checkout our newest production in the sidebar.

The Blog Formerly Known As

Identity Crisis Q&A

Q: What’s up with the blog title change?
A: The old one was, shall we say, stupid and unimaginative. And I never really liked it. Brian Williams and the Dateline folks get me worked up about things like identity theft, so I decided to no longer publicly publicize our first and last names (first maybe, but not last). And don’t be looking for our SS #s, banking accounts, addresses, security codes, and passwords either, ‘cuz they ain’t there.

Q: So, why Pocket Litter?
A: I don’t know, why not?

Q: Does your new, but still kind of stupid title have any particular meaning?
A. I am glad you asked! You see, the other day when I was at work researching our new really cool historical spy camps, I came across a list of spy terms, which included “pocket litter.” According to The Daring Book for Girls, “pocket litter” is spyspeak for “[the] items in a spy’s pocket (receipts, coins, etc.) that add authenticity to his or her identity.” Sigh. I love spies.

Q: What does the marmot have to do with pocket litter and spies?
A: Well, Dad, nothing - but isn’t he cute?

Q: When you were a kid, did you ever dream of becoming a spy?
A: Nope. I become extremely agitated when I’m doing something I’m not supposed to be doing – especially if there is the possibility of being caught, even more especially if there is the possibility of being caught by somebody who might have a gun. I would make a terrible spy. But, I do think they have best jargon of all the occupations.

New Addition

If you will turn your attention to the sidebar you will notice our new addition! We have taken to making short movies and we enjoy sharing them with you all. But we don’t want them to interfere with our regular blogging space.

Each new movie will be featured in the sidebar and links to all movies, both new and old will be listed beneath. For example there is a new movie in there now. Once I figure out the code for adding an additional sidebar, screen left, movie time will be housed there (if any of you can be of assistance here let me know).

Also, we want to assure all you ski movie haters out there that fantastic telemark footage will not monopolize our movie magic.

So, sit back, grab some corn...it’s movie time!

Get Down, Get Deeper and Down

There’s nothing but cold air and snow in Logan town this time of year…lots of snow. The season really only lends itself to one activity: Skiing.

This is our first attempt at movie making.


Enjoy.





*Disclaimer: ski footage was shot two years ago and all parties have greatly improved since.
