Celebrate 16
August 30, 2014

Another long day, today we celebrated my daughter’s upcoming 16th Birthday.  It is still a week and a half away, each year getting lumped in with the start of school.  So we planned this day months ago, to give her an end of summer/16th Birthday bash. Music by DJ JC Fusion, I ran a photo booth family, friends it was an awesome day.

Today was “Pointe Shoe Fitting Day” which until today, I was unaware was a holiday.  I put some cash on the table this morning and this afternoon it was replaced with a proud grin on my daughter’s face.  I am told there will be ribbons, bling, flair or something else will be added to them later,but for now these are the shoes I have been told about for years.  I know far too much about Pointe Shoes, toes, arches, heels, I can not wait to see what she does with them.

#toywednesday – The figures have been kicking around my house for awhile, the card is part of a set I got at the Flea Market. Nothing but 20 cards using the word Smurf different ways. My favorite is Smurfette on the card that says “Wanna Smurf Around”.

A Mötley Crüe
August 25, 2014

It is late, just back from seeing Mötley Crüe at Great Woods (not even sure of the real name of that place). The sound was less than be desired, Nikki Six needs to tell shorter stories, the smell was an acquired taste, the seats were worth exactly what I paid for them on Groupon, but the company we kept made the night worth it. I might be to old to shout at the devil and I am not sure if you can really smoke in the boys room anymore, but good for the guys trying to look like rockers. My hat is off to the effort, even though I really do not think Tommy was behind the kit until later in the show. Farewell.

Friends and I had fun celebrating the We Were Astronauts latest release tonight, at Showcase Live in Foxboro. Live music, night out with friends, great crowd and I even got to sell some photos I have taken of the guys over the last year. Congratulations to Antonio, Tim, Steve and Chris… it will be cool to say I knew you all when. Check them out: wewereastronauts.com

Yr5•325/365•1786 With The Boy August 22, 2014

Nothing wrong with a selfies now and then, without them I would not have many photos with me in them.  To be honest I owe a lot to selfies… without them a lot of things would be different.  I once owned a 1-hr photo lab in Medway, The Photoshop. I bought it from a family in 1996, prior to that I worked there, prior to that I was a customer, prior to that I had a habit of picking up other people’s cameras and taking photos of myself (selfies before they were cool). I am talking 1991, 1992, which seems so far away now.  One day in the early 90’s I walked into Copi’s Photo – and the woman behind the counter said “you are the guy in all the photos!”. Apparently all those times I had picked up others cameras, many time without even knowing who owned the camera, had made an impression on the people that developed the film. They may have been the only ones who appreciated the humor in my running gag. I am sure there are photos of me that have been thrown away over and over from that time.  We got to talking, a few months later I was working there 1 day week, then a few days a week, eventually full-time and within years I owned the place.  It all started with selfies, before they even had a name. It feels like there should be a moral to this story, I have no idea, it would have been nice to end with one.  I know I pissed  a few people off with the photos. Film was precious back then. Oh well, if you might have one of my early 90’s selfies let me know. I do promise if you ever had something other than a face on a roll of film that you didn’t know where it came from, well that was NOT me… but I do know a guy it might be. That’s a different story.
