Myrtle Beach Adventures

I made it to Myrtle Beach and back in one piece. It was a quick trip, but I loved every minute of it. I even enjoyed the drive there and back. Mostly, anyway. There is, no doubt, much more to Myrtle Beach than I saw, but what I did see was very commercialized. It was…

Halfway Through

On the 6th Day of Christmas… We played the tourists. I thought the kids should see Hollywood and Beverly Hills and Venice Beach. So we drove through the crazy, East L.A. traffic to get to Grauman’s Chinese Theater, which isn’t even Grauman’s anymore, but it’s still pretty cool. We walked around and looked at the…

Catching Up

Okay. I’ve only got a little time to tell you what’s been going on. I’ll start with Wednesday. That was my trip in to Philly to have my tattoos touched up and the hair under my arms zapped into oblivion. The ride into the city was pleasant and uneventful. I’m telling you, give me some…

The Latest Installment of the Reconstruction Chronicles

My drive into Philadelphia today served as evidence that I’m still a long way away from my New Year’s Resolution. Here’s an example (singing in italics): Indescribable, uncontainable, you placed the stars in the sky and you know them by name, you are amaz… Buddy! This is a freeway, not a country road!! Who has…

Revolve in Kodachrome

I took 365 pictures Friday and Saturday. Before you panic, I haven’t posted all of them. In fact I’ve only posted pictures which didn’t include any of the girls. So here we go… On the bus Friday afternoon: Does anyone else find this kind of funny? Friday night traffic in Philadelphia: Wachovia Spectrum starting to…
