Yesterday, Tony said that he wanted to get up early and get a good start on golfing, while it was cool outside. Good idea. I woke up at my usual time of around 6:30, woke him and his friend, Brandon up at around 7:00. The first thing that Tony said to me was: Ummmm. Poppa. They have a dress code. No athletic shorts or t-shirts. Huh? I thought we were going to play golf! I had him call just to…

As I was on my morning with with Sir Hobbs, I noticed the beauty in the morning, something that I had not be noticing for quite some time as I was caught up in my own thoughts and just could not see. Anyway, this morning, it was quite different and there were pictures to be had everywhere, but I didn’t have a camera with me. Or at least I didn’t think that I did. Then, I realized that I had…

A boy and his dog Well, age-wise, I’m no longer a boy, but a heart, I am. Just a photo from this morning’s walk with my buddy, Hobbs. I really do enjoy these early morning walks with him while the sun is coming up. It’s so peaceful, quiet, and I get to see lots of sights in the morning that don’t seem to be available later on. I can almost count on seeing bluebirds sitting on mailboxes and on the…

Yesterday, June 5th was Tony’s high school graduation. Next week is his 18th birthday. ‘C’ is for cookie, that’s good enough for me. ‘C’ is for cookie, that’s good enough for me. ‘C’ is for cookie, that’s good enough for me. Oh! Cookie! Cookie! Cookie! Starts with ‘C’ — Sesame Street – Cookie Monster This song lives on in my head. I had to listen to it every single day for what seemed like eternity, but was probably on the…

I promised my wife that while she was away this weekend that I’d have her car looked at. The brakes have been squeaking. This week was busy with the usual stuff, so I waited to do it until this weekend. The place that we get our cars repaired is Tuffy Auto Center. Tuffy is located pretty conveniently, when you’re driving. Well, I had made up my mind early this week that I would drop the car there on Saturday morning…

Pondering – Olympus 35 LC Ilford HP5 – Rodinal 1:50 Of course this photo has absolutely nothing to do with what I’m talking about, but I like the shot, so I posted it. I took it while on the way to work. I saw this guy staring in the window. I lifted the camera, took the photo, and never broke stride. He didn’t have clue that I snapped a picture. Score one for the quiet rangefinder, though in truth, it’s…
