Of Marriage and Bandannas

I believe it must have been around 5th grade when my dad returned for a short spell. I wasn’t doing too well in school and I was fairly certain that my teacher, Mrs. Nichols, didn’t care none too much for the likes of me. I don’t remember too much about her save for one incident […]

Brunch with the Offspring

Yesterday, the Offspring wanted to go to Bojangles ( or Bo-hangles as he intentionally likes to mispronounce it ). It was a little late in the morning to call it breakfast, so I have decided to refer to it as “brunch”. We thumb wrestled, arm wrestled and taught each other those little weird things you […]

One Year

This month makes a little over a year since my mother has moved in with us. All total there have been two strokes (that we know of) that have rendered her unable to care for herself as she once did. This picture was from sometime last year when she could actually walk by herself. She […]

Too Much

Sometimes I read news on the Internet and I think, “Maybe it’s possible to know too much.”

New Facebook Profile Pic

Photobombing is fun. The reason it works is no one checks out the background when they take a selfie; they look at themselves. Yeah, I’m a creeper.

Rainbows and Social Media

There was this crazy rainbow in the sky this morning while we were getting our day started. I’ve got to confess tho; I didn’t know it was there until I saw about 7 photos of it on Facebook from various people in their respective locations around town. I slagged about it a little on Twitter, […]

The Grey

It’s been one week…. one whole week since the sun has graced us with its presence. One week of blah grey skies and no vitamin D. I need my vitamin D. I can feel my soul slowly withering up inside of me. Someone get me a sun lamp, stat.

Nature is Fun

“The most important things are the hardest to say. They are the things you get ashamed of, because words diminish them — words shrink things that seemed limitless when they were in your head to no more than living size when they’re brought out. But it’s more than that, isn’t it? The most important things […]

Decim8 Finalist

I made the finals for @movax’s Decim8 contest a few weeks ago. I didn’t win, but was in the top three or four so that’s pretty cool. As they say on TV, it’s an honor just to be nominated. I’m always in awe of all the other people that enter those contests. So much talent […]

New Profile Pic for Facebook

I made a new avatar for Facebook and Twitter this week. I really like the fact that when it’s post-identifying-micro small it look almost like the generic no-profile pic. My eyebrows and beard seemed to conspire to look angry tho, so I’m not completely happy with it. I also went through my likes on Facebook […]

Wrightsville Beach Post Arthur Surf

On July 4th, I went down to Wrightsville Beach to take some pictures of the post Hurricane Arthur swell being enjoyed by the local surfers. After whittling over 1000 pictures down to a little over 200, I’ve set up a couple of places to view the pictures and maybe sell some prints. So, if you […]

This is the first time I can remember meeting my dad. I was seven. Sometime just before I turned one he took a six year trip to the store to buy milk and came back with his girlfriend, a matchbox 18 wheeler and a set of Mack Tools red coveralls that I wore until I […]

Interesting Shell V2.0

  When I first got a hold of a image editing program, I did what we all did; applied filters to my little heart’s content until a photo was hardly recognizable. #decim8 is much like that, only cooler. Waay cooler.

May I Come In?

No. No you may not. I’ve got a healthy fear of things that can sting me. It probably comes from getting torn up by a nest of hornets that had come to reside in the plastic swinging horse at my grandmother’s house when I was but a wee lad. She killed them with a pot […]
