Along The Way

Scrapbook Shots

After family gatherings, no activity offers Roadboy more photo opportunities than travel. Sometimes it is a view from the airplane window (yes, airplane windows still captivate me). It might be a momentary interaction with locals along the way. Of all the (thousands?) of travel photos I've snapped over the years here are a few of my favorites. These are worth clicking to make larger.

Canine Yin and Yang and Another Year!

Roadboy Passes Another Milepost

Just a quick post to say hi to everyone as another birthday passes. I share a birthday with Billy Joel (and Billy and I are just a day after Harry Truman). Funny, I don't feel as old as the guy I see in the mirror.

This birthday has some extra joy attached to it as number one son graduates tomorrow (Summa Cum Laude from Arizona State University - indeed a final GPA that reflects almost 4 years of solid perfect).

Here is Ms. M's 2013 birthday card for me!

Our two pups expressed as yin and yang. 

I wish you all the best.

Especially you graduates and all you mom's out there!
