Sliding in under deadline

Leave a comment

Nothing like taking advantage of the last few minutes of the day to slide in the daily post. Feels like cheating. I’ll make up for it and stay up and work a bit longer. I promise.

I hate using photos I’ve used before in my blog. But I don’t mind putting up older photos I haven’t published yet. And being the Thursday time-frame is very tight I’m going to use an older one I haven’t posted before. I normally try to keep it fairly fresh. Getting on a daily posting schedule and the need for visuals to break up the grey matter that comes out of my mind has left me in a bind some days.

The solution is I just need to shoot more again which is really a great thing. I need to get that viewfinder up to my eyes. There is some winter precipitation this evening so I’m going to throw the cameras and a tripod in the car and do some late night shooting.

The early scouting report was very light snow not sticking to much. I’ll head back out later and see what I can find.

Light snow, light foot.

Random Thoughts of the Day

Loved having dinner with my expecting daughter last night. I’m not sure I like the traditional names like grandpa or pop pop. I’ve got to come up with something else and unique for the grand daughter to call me. Maybe (fuzzy) for my beard? Or maybe (coke coke), being I usually have one in my hand. This requires more thought.

Lots of decisions to make in the near future. The pressure is on. But isn’t that always the case. Life and each day is a series of decisions. You just call them big and small but the reality is they are all important.

To say some friends are priceless is an understatement for a few of mine.

The toughest years of my career have also been the most rewarding. Well in most cases. As in everything there are exceptions.

This day has been fun but not as productive as I would have liked. Yeah FUN.

With a lifetime and a half in the Newspaper industry I'm preparing for my retirement career as an Artist, Writer, Photographer and Video content provider. I'm a proud father of two wonderful children and I'm still married to the first girl I fell in love with and probably only one that would have me.
