What’s on your phone?

Leave a comment

If you’re like me, I keep shooting photos on my phone and then forgetting about them.  Recently I took a good look at all those images and was amazed to discover it was like a biography of my life over the last several years.  Both personal and humorous, here’s a photo scrapbook of my last 36 months.

Had to downsize the in-laws belongings and move them closer to us including selling the Father In-Laws ’35 Ford that he’s owned since he was 16.   Boy, was he thrilled with me!


Son Connor giving a medical presentation for college.  Still don’t understand what he was talking about.  But he looked good doing it.


You can’t beat a good car show


Had to take over the management of the in-laws duplex in Lees Summit.  Progressing nicely on new deck

Oldest brother Greg, who suffered a stroke, and I enjoy our outings at Loose Park.


For a little fine art and culture, Nita and I take a break in Branson, MO.

Christmas with Nita’s family is a very serious business.  Must be able to sing and play an instrument.


Have an out of control hobby of collecting vintage stereo equipment.  Working on a new album rack.


Christmas tradition includes shopping at Crown Center and a light tour.

Nephew talked me into taking him to Comi-Con convention.  Can you tell which one is me?


Took ten days off to drive the Pacific Coast Highway.  Starting point was San Francisco with a quick tour of a Japanese Tea Garden

Tragically, my other brother and best friend passed away from ALS.  I volunteered to clean out his closet and personal things and unfortunately my Sister-In-Law took me up on it!


Black Tie Affair for Mike Nolte’s daughters wedding.


Nephew talked me into taking him to the new Captain America.  Man he looks good!


Out of the blue, Rosemary with Final Touch Studios invites us to her seats at a Royals Game.  If we sat any closer I’d be calling the plays at home plate.

Grabbed a bottle of Diet Coke with daughters name.  Still looking for a cool place to photograph the bottle.

So, Nita and the kids always joke with me because my constant mantra is, “Give me a conclusion.”  My conclusion is in the last few years I’ve witnessed tragic misfortunes and unparalleled beauty.  Isn’t that what life is all about.  All  you can do is just strap in and enjoy the ride!
