Tote Bags and Such

I had just missed the shot that I wanted. 

It looked like the father had been waiting for his wife and daughters to be done browsing for a long time; he was standing like you see and his little girl was leaning against the cart; there was a separated togetherness that I had wanted to capture but then she moved and ruined it. 

I should have asked her to go back and lean on the cart.

It's not the angle I would have chosen

There was a grandmother, father, mother, two daughters, and a son; these three got to pose.

Step Your Game Up

They are talking about the business of tying balloons

How about a post?

This lady's T-shirt indicates that she is the world's greatest dad; at first I had my doubts but those doubts were based purely her being a woman. She might be the world's greatest dad. Who am I to judge?

This guy was sitting there with his eyes closed even before he was half way through his first glass of beer from that pitcher. He didn't seem drunk, he just seemed odd. I would never order a whole pitcher of beer for myself, mostly because the beer gets warm and little because it looks like you have a drinking problem.

Homemade: mashed potatoes, chicken, gravy.
I do revel in that my youngest niece, who's four years old, has stated that I make better mashed potatoes then her mother does while her mother is standing right next to her.

One of the chickens cooked on the Weber charcoal grill. It was cooked: beer-can style on something I purchased from Williams-Sonoma on sale a couple years ago. No actual beer cans were used and the beer used came from a bottle because in my house I do not drink beer from cans.

I also have some video of two guys on the subway taking about the politics of street performers, particularly between one balloon "artist" (someone who ties balloons into unwanted shapes) and another balloon "artist" but you will have to wait for that because it's being uploaded to my youtube account. 

I guess flowers are a big seller in the balloon tying game and one guy was upset with another guy for making flowers too close to where he was making balloon flowers, and the second guy was like: "Then step up your game," and you know what? I don't disagree.

If a certain amount of money can be made by simply twisting a balloon into the rather simple shape of a flower, then I might stand right next to you and twist balloons into those same simple shapes and if you don't like it, then do something that not just anyone can do, twist harder, or faster, or bigger - Step up your game!

A short

Melissa says I should eat avocados and she wants proof that I eat them. I think filming myself eating half an avocado is kind of funny.

It’s all paperwork to me. The names and places really don’t have a bearing.

It’s all paperwork until I have to race over to the professional baseball field to change the No Parking signs that my memo had set into motion to have put up.

The signs needed to be changed because there was a conflict between someone making a major motion picture and a motorcade for a member of royalty.

I complained about it in an email to someone that holds my heart.

She replied: “You get drama between princes and movie people!! I get laundry and groceries.”

Still, my life is all just mostly paperwork.

When things go wrong, I extend the same effort to fix the problem whether it’s a crown prince or a single mother trying to run a block party. Titles do not impress me.

I’m not really changing the world.

I’m mostly just changing when you can park.
