Strafford Photo Project

July 21, 2008

On July 5th I participated in the Strafford Photo Project. I pulled out the old film camera that Dave Pierini gave me when I was in Jasper and burned through a pile of expired slide film. I sent the rolls off to Kansas to be processed and I just got them back. I’ll be posting the results bit by bit as I go through them.

03755 Hanover

She was looking at me in that certain way from across the room. It was snowing outside, a light snowfall, and I went over and said something about taking a walk. That’s how we met.

In September, just when it was getting chilly again, I asked her to marry me. She said a funny thing, kind of like a bargain, that at our age we shouldn’t say anything about love. We were married that year in Milwaukee, on November 17, 1994.

Something went haywire with my template a few days ago and I don’t have time to fix it. I’m going to go with this one for now. Sorry about the lost links, don’t take it personally.

Kobe in my ear

June 10, 2008

“I just tell him to relax,” Kobe Bryant said. “Sometimes he’s his own worst enemy. I tell him, ‘You’ve got to get out of the way of yourself. Just go out there and let your game come. You got a shot, shoot it. Just relax.’

God knows why I was reading sports, but when Kobe was speaking to Lamar Odom he was speaking to me. I wish I had a little Kobe in my ear, a bluetooth Kobe I could stick in there, let him whisper, “shoot, dummy. Don’t think.” One question, though. How long do you have to wait until your game comes? Hard not to think about that.

No big story with this one. I just went to get my camera from the trunk and took a photo from where I stood. Proof at least that the snow is indeed gone, and Barbara has her garden in.
