I thought I'd use a bunch of random pictures from my phone to catch y'all up a bit.
This is Tarek. He will be sixteen soon so the whole driving nightmare is about to begin, but I'm really hard of all the hard work he puts in to school and football.
This is Tarek again. Back earlier this summer when my buddy Alex Keto came down for Maryland to take some photographs. Alex is a fine arts photographer who would never stoop to taking a shot of someones backside as they are trying to navigate steep terrain. I am not Alex so I did take this shot of him. Sorry Alex. To make amends I suggest all of you go visit AlexKeto.com to see his talent on display.
Speaking of Alex's talent, he took this shot which will be the basis of the new cover for my memoir The Feedstore Chronicles.
This is Zalen. He will be 14 soon and as you can see he is thrilled to be posing for a first day of 8th grade picture. But he is developing a nice Elvis-like snarl.
This is me whipping both boys on the go-kart track even as I drive with one had to take a selfie.
I however did not take any of these shots. Apparently 1913 was a very bad year for somebody, Or maybe it was the last four digits of an exes phone number? Who knows but someone had some frustration they needed to work out on this lonely stretch of road.
Spotted this bit of advertising just the other day.
Spring of last year I had the pleasure of reading at a literary conference down in Belton, Texas. While there I discovered this magical walkway.
On the same trip i also spied this. A casket in a pickup discreetly hidden beneath a Dora the Explorer blanket. I imagine it went something like this ...
"It's how much to transport the body to the cemetary?"
"Oh hell no. I got a truck. I ain't paying for that."
Here is another shot I took while Alex was here. He was using all sorts of fancy equipment and without a doubt capture far superior pics than I did, but I like the way this sunset came out.
