Slippery when wet

I’ve been writing up a storm but nothing is complete enough today to process. Actually I wrote two long pieces but one I want to put more into and the other was maybe an area that I always think about for a day or two if I want to venture into.

So I was looking through shots the past few weeks and found these puppies. I had no idea where I was going with them beyond writing the post title. I’m overwhelmed with news and work and moving furniture today.

I’m not into the raw but you can bring me, Rockefeller, all night long.

There is nothing like seafood in the summertime. There could be a zillion reasons to move and if you said I can have crabs and Old Bay I’m staying.

Even though I don’t partake in these, they are unique in many ways. And the job they do in scrubbing our waterways is incredible. Something like 50 gallons of water per day filtered.

And if anyone is aware of the date that people are eligible to no longer have to move other people let me know what it is. Just kidding, I’ll always be available for family and friends. Just like they are for me. One of my best friends texted me back after I told him I was starting the move of my inlaws and he offered to help immediately. It might take us a little longer than it did when we were younger. It might hurt more. It will always be fun and sad. Usually because of shared memories of the home being left.

Random Thoughts of the Day

  • My busy week just got busier.
  • Best wishes to those who use the Bay Bridge. Have patience, its better than falling into the water from those heights.
  • What an interesting news cycle.
  • Sometimes when I hurt I think about the SNL skit as Fernando says ‘It’s better to look good, than to feel good” and I always laugh for a second or two. And laughter is a good way to feel better.

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.
