If we were having a beer, you would be worried. “Look at you boys, right on time today. Beer for you, what about you? Bourbon? Wine?” “Make mine a seltzer today Cheryl.” “Seltzer?” “Seltzer?” “Yes, seltzer. I have to finish getting my garage clean; I should probably stay sober.” “Why didn’t you call? We... Continue Reading →
Back in September, I enjoyed a nice walk from the area around Faneuil Hall in Boston, back to my hotel. Of course I took pictures of doors, and I thought I would share them and describe where I was on the journey. That was until I discovered that I had captured so many theater doors...

A co-worker and I share the same birthday, so every year, we take ourselves to lunch on or near that day. This year, we decided to wrap it up a week early, since we were both going to be busy on the actual day. Since it was my turn to buy, we went to Chili’s... Continue Reading →
If we were having a beer, you’d seem concerned about my health. “Are you in a wellness program?” “Why, is that a requirement for drinking here?” “No, of course not. I was just wondering.

I read “My Grl” “His Revenge” and “Our Justice” and I enjoyed all three. When John said his next book was going to be different, I got nervous.... Continue Reading →
I though you guys would like to know what Cheryl was doing while we struggled with her replacement. Don’t try to do the geography, it only works in my head.
I’m going to try and turn off comments over here.

We have children up in Nebraska, but since flying was already iffy at best, we decided to head to Atlanta where there was ONE hotel that we found good reservations.

Please forgive the Friday intrusion, but I can't resist a chance to bring back a few photos from the Duquesne Incline. I don't participate in Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge very often, but I follow a lot of people who do. The challenges are a great source of interesting photos. Anyway, I'm going to make this...
