Latest Entry

Brooklyn

January 6, 2020
Happy New Year everybody! I was going through some photos looking for something else and came across these, which I had forgotten about (all of three weeks later) - DiaryMistress and I went for a short away to Williamsburg, Brooklyn last month - I shot these randomly on the street. It was a fun t...

  • Why did they put lipstick on Rey
    December 16, 2019
    I'm on a plane and watching The Last Jedi over the shoulder of the middle seat person in front of me (with no sound, because the screen for my seat is not working). There were a lot of complaints about that movie, but I didn't hate it - although I did find the part of…

  • Warm Thanksgiving Wishes
    December 3, 2019
    I know, I know...Thanksgiving was almost a week ago, but a good story sometimes takes some time to tell. The picture above is of one of the Thanksgiving turkeys - Thanksgiving was not at our house, but at the house of a relative who with her husband are very good cooks, so that is nice.…

    November 14, 2019
    We had a wet Halloween. (okay, finally coming back to finish this entry - Halloween is now quite a bit further back than when I originally typed this!) I mean, it didn't rain the entire time - but it rained in the afternoon and then let up long enough for kids to come around, and…

  • It’s Just The Normal Noises In Here
    October 15, 2019
    I took eight versions of that picture above when I was walking by, and like usual, the first one I took was the best. It's funny, but as I'm getting older I find that there are times I actually yearn for a quiet place - this city is so noisy, all the time. I was…

  • Gummosis
    September 9, 2019
    Which I didn't know was a thing (gummosis) until I learned about it through the wonder of the internet. The cherry tree in our yard is leaking sap at a crazy rate - what I learned is that this behavior is a symptom of damage from insects, wounds, weather, or other poor conditions. Now I…

  • Teen Dreams of an AOR Age
    August 29, 2019
    Not really a dream at all, but Scenes from an Italian Restaurant came on Spotify this morning, which for some reason bounced a memory out of the vaults from when I was a teen. Remembered back to a time visiting my cousins in Florida - they were living in a house by a canal, where…

  • Making Peace with a Violent World
    August 7, 2019
    There was an incident last night in Times Square - after dark, but while the tourist crowds were still at their height - a motorcycle backfired. Thousands of people mistook these sounds for gunfire and fled Times Square, trampling and injuring others, pounding on closed theater doors to be let in...
