Beach pics

I just got my hands on some pics from Florida, wherein we buried my nephew in sand. It was fun. :-) The beer cans are a nice touch, no? :-)


The Eastern State Penitentiary

The Bastille Day event we went to on the 14th was held at the Eastern State Penitentiary in Philadelphia – a few of us did wander around it and I took a bunch of photos that I didn’t post with the costume ones. It’s quite run down and spooky. It’s no longer used, but when it was, the prisoners was … Continue Reading →


A few more Bastille Day pics

Here are a few of the photos Gloria’s husband Mike took!


Bastille Day

I had a great time on Saturday the 14th “storming the Bastille” at the Eastern State Penitentiary in Philadelphia.    We had a big group and lots of chemise dresses and big hats, and we had an awesome time!  They had some sort of staged event with stuff also going on up on the roof.  5 of us were up there, … Continue Reading →


Another photo post (Angry Birds [the game, not the real bird], 4th of July redux, BNL concert & more)

Two photo posts in one day! I guess I’m still playing catchup! The 4th of July fireworks in the local town of Laurel were held on the 7th. My officemate lives 100 yds practically from where they were doing them, so we did our usual dinner/fireworks/game night at his place. Steve and Mindy’s kids are getting so big and they’re … Continue Reading →


What I’ve been up to (more Angry Birds, guitar, Ringo, etc)

Yet still more Angry Birds. Nothing we’ve done has dissuaded our poor demented cardinal (we named him Rusty) from continuing to attack our Window. I think it’s reflecty enough that he can’t see anything we’ve put on the inside. People don’t scare him. Shapes in the window don’t scare him, etc. And it’s 2 stories up so there’s not much … Continue Reading →


That was quite a storm!

As lots of you probably know, we had a huge storm on Friday June 29th that moved east very quickly from the mid-west – and then hit the wall of hot humid air we had sitting over us. I think the result was even worse than the hurricane damage last year. :-( (At least for the hurricane, they knew it … Continue Reading →


June Beach Vacation in Florida

So, last month I went to Florida on our annual beach vacation with Doug’s family. I’m just going to lead with Doug’s pic of the gorgeous sunrise he didn’t wake me up for (bad Doug!) but at least he got pictures. Pretty no?


A BEATLE ACKNOWLEDGED MY EXISTANCE!!!

I posted this elsewhere a few weeks ago, but I forgot to do so here. Here’s what happened. I took my Mom to see Ringo and my friend/bandmate Joe came along. The concert was at the Myerhoff in Baltimore. Security was more oppressive, more oppressive than I’ve seen it before. They wouldn’t let anyone stand, practically, even for one song. … Continue Reading →
