The Big U of K

Monday, September 10th, 2012

You may not have noticed, but I sent my son to college recently. I held it together pretty well, considering how strongly I feel about my kiddo. The outpouring of calls I got was very touching … people checked on me for several days after the move to make sure I wasn’t committing empty-nest seppuku. […]

I should learn to keep my mouth shut …

Sunday, September 11th, 2011

No time at all passed between my last post and a series of events that ensured I was unable to “just chill” and enjoy having finished school. First of all, our house was burglarized. While it may have been something of an overreaction, I took that as a sign that it was time to move. […]

Happy Birthday, Kory

Saturday, July 31st, 2010

Kory turns sixteen this week. I’m pretty sure I mentioned last year that I would be fairly freaked out by this milestone, but I like to think I’m taking it well. Kory is a fantastic person. I don’t take credit for all he’s become, but I am ridiculously proud nonetheless. Kory has an amazing ability […]

Leave sooner, drive slower, live longer

I gave Kory his first driving lesson today. Chip tagged along, even though there really aren’t supposed to be other people in the car, because we needed a pylon. Just kidding. But, wow, that is one orange shirt. Anyway, the day was perfect for the maiden voyage of the as-yet-unnamed Subaru. The sun was actually […]

Tattoos and Typos

Saturday, January 16th, 2010

It turns out my birthday celebration has extended well past the anniversary of my actual birth. Last night I collected on my everlasting gift from Chip: a new tattoo. Chip thoughtfully showed up right when it was really starting to smart and took some pictures. Fair warning – don’t click around on those photos unless […]

What’s a Little Weed Among Friends?

Tuesday, September 8th, 2009

Quite some time ago, maybe three or four years, Joe Lynch gave Kory a cute little book full of dog tricks. Isn’t that a cute book? Kory forgot about it for a while, but he recently picked it up while looking for some new things to teach Riley. Hello, Riley. Kory was a little taken […]

Digital Insanity

Thursday, August 20th, 2009

Do you remember when you had to wait for hours, even days, before you could see the results of your photographic efforts?  As someone who used to work with film, and with photographers, I can tell you that, on average, a very good photographer can get two to seven good shots for every twenty-four frame […]
