Saturday’s Daily Photo Shoot

My Dad, with his brother, on the porch, c. 1944 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin

 This seems to me as a sad photo of my father.  It puts me in a melancholic mood.  My Dad is the little boy on the left with the pensive look.

Homer, Alaska-- my home

 Some stock photo, I like them a little less polished.  Homer is one of the prettiest locales in Alaska.  I love living here (when I’m not depressed).

My family, Dad, Mom and my brother Scott (Mom is holding Eric). I'm the tall kid, standing behind my father, c. 1973

2000 Hits!

Celebrating 2000 Hits!

Just arrived at a milestone which I honestly never imagined. has just had its 2000th hit!  Thank you everyone for making this possible.  I have a real pumped feeling about this [if you couldn’t tell already] and God is good.
