My daughter Emmy and I were watching DC LEGENDS OF TOMORROW and she noticed something…

Went out to my buddy Mike’s place and with my other buddy, Jody – we shot some guns. Pretty cool. Plus, I got to use my PVC target stand.

The “Eyes” have it.

by on Aug.12, 2015, under Creativity, Family, Humor, Misc., Musings


I wanted to share a story that most people with a “significant other” would most definitely associate and appreciate. I also set up a new category that has other stories I’ve written if you’d like to read them Just click on this link, MUSINGS.

Now onto our story…

Our son Joaquin is beginning his Sophomore year at UIW and has decided he wants to live on campus. He was initially denied housing since he was a “local commuter” and out-of-town students have priority. But was put on a waiting list and told housing would email people each Friday in July if any openings came up. He was bummed but both Elizabeth and I told him to stay positive – there are 5 Fridays in July.

So each Friday he’d somberly tell us he didn’t get in. By Thurs 7/30, he’d given up. He and Elizabeth decided to begin the process of returning the extra Student loan monies they had procured when on the very last Friday of July (7/31) he got the call. They had an apartment for him. He was elated, as were we.

Told you…

It’s been a mad dash to get him what he needs and prepare for the move this weekend. Momma Bear quickly created a shopping list and has already procured almost everything her Cub needs. This Friday, he’ll go to the Housing office, turn in paperwork, get his key and begin the move. School starts on Monday 8/17/2015.

This past Monday, while we were both sitting on the sofa enjoying some TV after a delicious dinner, I looked over at my beloved and asked,  “So, what do you expect from me during Joaquin’s move?”

“It was a honest question and I wanted to know what was expected.”

She straightened up, looked at me and replied, “I’m taking this Friday off from work to help him…” and then just stared at me, remaining motionless.

ProDot Shutter button

by on Jul.12, 2015, under Misc., Photography

ProDot_Shutter_Button-001Trying out this little gizmo I bought online for about $8 for two. I’m hoping it will “train me” to keep still when I press the shutter button on my Nikon. This should help with sharper image since since none of my lenses for my Nikon D7000 have image stabilization built in like my Sony A6000. Again these were pretty cheap and I can always remove it once applied to my Shutter button.

The site stages: “…the ProDot Shutter Button Upgrade helps you capture better photos with more comfort and control. The ProDot’s textured surface and raised button padding reduces camera shake and provides a better grip for a smooth shooting experience. This camera upgrade provides an instant improvement to the most critical engagement point of your camera: the shutter button.”

You can see the demo here at their site – ProDot Site.

I like the way it feels and it comes in black and clear too.

“It’s a Party Party Weekend!”

by on Mar.14, 2015, under Family, Misc., Music, Sony A6000

Busted out the record player, much to the heavy sighs of our kids.

“They should be thankful they didn’t see us dancing.” 

We had purchased some records from Hog Wild but with such great weather, Elizabeth started the weekend right with Joe King Carrasco! Of course I had to film it using my Sony A6000. Still getting used to the focusing though.

I’ll have to post more songs later as we use it more.
