Cindy took Ann and our two oldest grandchildren, Mikey and Heather, to Disney’s Animal Kingdom a few weeks ago. Here’s a video I just loved seeing; Mikey having fun and enjoying The Festival of the Lion King.

Back in January, Grandma and I took Abby to Leu Gardens for a short morning visit. I’m finally getting around to looking over the photos I took and I found these six of Abby that I really liked, so I thought I’d post them. Abby is always (ok, almost always) happy to “model” for Granddad […]

I’ve really come to love Tumblr because I keep finding more and more of the people I’m interested in over there. Writing, Comic Books, Science Fiction, Photography, and other interests of mine are well represented on Tumblr. My own Tumblr page consists of this blog (auto-post is great!), but it also contains things I find […]

Many things happened around the world in 1925.   The First Motel (Motorists Hotel) opened in San Luis Obispo, California. Adolf Hitler published his personal manifesto Mein Kampf.

  As I mentioned a few days ago on Throwback Thursday, it was 18 years ago today that Cindy and I were married in the presence of a few friends and family members in the backyard garden of her parents’ home. It was Easter Sunday and though we don’t observe that religious holiday, our wedding […]

Four days from now, Monday, March 30th, will mark our 18th wedding anniversary. Today’s Throwback Thursday takes us back to 1997 to remember that special day that Cindy and I took our vows in her parents’ garden surrounded by our family and friends. The quality of the photos taken that day were not as high […]

In addition to the photos highlighting my mother-in-law in the Moving Day Parkinson’s Walk post last week, I had also taken many other photos of family members and the surroundings at Crane’s Roost Park. Here are some of the best of those photos.

A couple of weeks ago I posted about the Moving Day National Parkinson’s Foundation Walking Benefit. That walk took place yesterday at Crane’s Roost Park in Altamonte Springs and my mother-in-law, Kay Perkins, who has Parkinson’s (as did her late father, Charles William Kinney in whose honor we walked) was well represented by her family, […]
