B&W Challenge: Day 20: Brother and Sister



Alex and Megan.  They do look alike, don’t they.  For me, this more journalistic composition works.  More of a documentary style.  Taken Christmas 2006.


  • Himself:  Enjoyed breakfast with longtime friend Monica and her husband Dennis.  At the museum, only two kids were cranky, and at Costco what we wanted wasn’t on the shelves.
  • Herself:  My life would not be the same without Monica.  Yet we have not seen each other for 25 years.  It was good to see her again, but next time perhaps we need to discuss why.  Napped, read, dinner at Costo, such a quiet day.
  • Reading:  Finished Christopher Buckley’s book about the death of his “Mum and Pup” within a year.
  • Balance:  The quiet.

    B&W Challenge: Day 19: Zoe


    The youngest and last granddaughter.  She surprised me yesterday by answering the phone as an adult, and telling me to wait just a moment please.  Following all that politeness, only then did she yell for her mother.  This image was taken Christmas of 2008.



  • Himself:  Gym first.  Then Friday he worked very hard supervising the carpet cleaners while doing subrogations.  Today, Saturday breakfast with old friends before the museum.

  • Herself:  Lots and lots of small donations at the Discovery shop Friday.  Many of the book shelves are half empty tho.  Donations are down.  Yesterday, dinner, meeting, TV, and today breakfast with maybe friends.

  • Reading:  John Kenneth Galbraith recommended that everyone read William F. Buckley for the writing and ignore the content.  I’m having trouble with the content.

  • Balance:  Doing my hand exercises.

    B&W Challenge: Day 18: Reunion



    We went to a small high school.  Many of those who went there were training to go to one of the military academies.  Then there were those of us who were chronic problems in school like me.  I failed everything but art and reading.  Most of my friends were the same sort of folks, and this school was also set up to deal with us. 

    In the early 1990’s, we began correspondences, and a series of small reunions began.  This shot is from one of the last of the gatherings.  She is the wife of one of the students and a very nice lady.  



  • Himself:  He had a good day, and he sent his old 401K off to my broker to have it grow into a proper retirement fund.  At work, they now have 401Ks that come with matching funds.  Starting soon, he tells me.  The papers have been signed.  Did party in the park opening new show.

  • Herself:  Eating too much and not having fun.  Did make a hard bound book of my 30 photos plus a few.

  • Reading:  An autobiography of William F Buckley.  Yes, I said that.

  • Balance:  Now only two more visits to the Physical therapist, coffee with Camille, and that party at G’s museum.
