Recently I had to get a new driver’s license and the Department of Motor Vehicles asked if I would like to be an organ donor, a question I’ve been asked before in years past. My answer has always been, “Yes!” I have long been a person who does not care what happens to my body […]
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 […]
It’s difficult to believe it has been 30 years since “Easy Lover” was released. That’s half my lifetime ago! But it’s still one of the songs on my “Favorites” playlist to this day. Back when it was first released I was already a fan of Genesis, the band Phil Collins was a member of, and […]
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.
This week’s Thursday Throwback recalls Cindy’s retirement from Disney party this week in 2010. Her mom and dad, to her right in the photo, were able to attend as a special surprise for her, and she is surrounded by many friends and co-workers.
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, […]
On this date in 1879 Albert Einstein was born. I don’t have much more to say about it beyond what I wrote last year, except to note that when I was in high school and struggling to understand his Theory of Relativity, his plain English explanation helped me immensely. “When you are courting a nice […]
March 14th, 3.14, is celebrated around the world as Pi Day every year. But this year’s Pi Day is even more significant because this year it is 2015 and the first 5 numbers of pi correspond to the format we sometimes give dates; in this case March 14, 2015 is 3.1415. Pi is a mathematical […]
Six years ago this week I was in Lexington, Kentucky doing recovery work following one of the worst ice storms that the state had ever experienced. I had a day off and decided to visit the nearby Kentucky Horse Park and take some photos. It was cold and wet, even in the middle of March, […]
