Summer, I salute you

Leave a comment

It’s county fair season and my hometown one is underway. So I think I’ll take advantage of Senior Day and see if I can get some photos of this year’s events.

We volunteered many years staffing The Times information booth and making announcements. It was a blast because I would do it with one of my best friends.

I’m coming up on what I hope to be a productive period with some time off from the job that pays the bills and a short break from helping with child care. I love that later one though.

Today is one of those days where I feel I have nothing left in the tank. No passion to share. No new images or art to display. Nothing, nada, zilch.

Random Thoughts of the Day

  • Going it alone means you report to yourself, so what type of boss are you?
  • I just thought of another daily goal I can add to the list. At least one new print every day.
  • My attitude sucks when I don’t get enough sleep.
  • I don’t even know all the questions so why would I assume I have all the answers?

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.
