Onwards through October. Some pretty color at Allen Pond: We checked out this cute kids garden at Watkins Park. Anniversary dinner at Bonefish Grill. It’s a chain, but we like the food there and go occasionally. My fav tree gets more color: This is actually an Antares rocket launch, as soon from our roof. In person it was bright and … Continue Reading →

Bok Tower

It’s not Thursday, but I’m throwing back, since I posted these photos back in 2009 – and I still think this was a really cool place, and I’m glad to have visited! It’s Bok Tower, in central Florida, which is a beautiful big garden, designed by Frederick Olmstead, with a “Singing Tower,” which has carillon bells. I highly recommend a … Continue Reading →


Band gig!

My band used to gig relatively regularly, especially when Kevin, our bass player, was working on the last Hubble servicing mission. He worked for a guy that liked to throw parties (on his own dime), and we played a bunch of them. But after that, two band members started work on a mission where they were in Japan a lot … Continue Reading →


2016 Year in Review

As I said in one of my other posts, this was a rough year personally. But there were lots of good things that happened, and frankly, more of them than I had realized. Here’s what I wrote on Facebook. I’ve written and erased various posts about how tough a year 2016 was. It’s hard to figure out a balance between … Continue Reading →


2016 Year in Review – food

I’m trying to find new ways to do a year in review, especially for a year that was kind of a dumpster fire. But it wasn’t all bad, and in reviewing, I’m actually starting to feel a lot better about it. I’m going to divide it up differently this year. This post is on FOOD. We ate at a bunch … Continue Reading →


2016 books

I feel like I didn’t read as much this year. It was, as I’ve said, a hard year personally.  And I’m almost? embarrassed to say I reread the same book a few times, just because I found it comforting. And that was The Royal We by the Fug Girls. I really liked the book and for some reason, reading something … Continue Reading →


Katie’s Wedding

Pre-wedding … Continue Reading →


What I’ve Been Up To, September, part 1

Cruising into September… Yes, it was the summer of Pokemon Go. This still cracks me up over a month later. My friend Meredith told me there was a Pikachu in our stairwell at lunch – and then there was Alex… Stephanie and Mat came to visit at work: The Godzillas. I think one is mugging the other. Another sunset at … Continue Reading →
