well here i go again trying to publish this series. it’s been such a crazy month for me. first there was the car fire when my engine, on the day cruiser
burst into flames while crossing the George Washington bridge. we go from this
it’s enough to make a grown man cry. here is a good friend mortally wounded and all i can do is wait. thank goodness i had a fire extinguisher which ran out and an angel stopped his car with a bigger fire extinguisher and put the fire our before the fire truck arrived.
i am still waiting for ins co to determine damages on the car placing it’s value somewhere between $8,000 to $12,000 dollar range. it’s worth more than that to me in memories. the body shops greedy bid for the work has me worried but they say i won’t have to do anything except keep my eye on them and i will.
i had a friend from the early 60’s come into town and contacted me for a visit. yes some of us are still alive from those ruckus merry days, some aren’t and as i get older i learn more and more who’s passed on. that’s old age i guess.
i try and keep creating or doing projects around the house to keep busy fixing this or that. i asked my friend if he’d mind me taking some pics of his hands because the day before i had tried taking some self portraits of my hand picking up chess pieces.
boy was this hard holding the camera and keeping focus without a tripod. this is natural sun light through the window. gnarly hand.
you think this is easy? ‘what do i do with my hands’ is one of the first things people ask and here i am concentrating on the hands double the trouble.
so that means it’s time go ‘see you again next year.’ take care.
here’s your coat, here’s your hat, what’s the rush see you next year.
yesterday i had another Model Mayhem flake out on me and not show up for a session. i should have known just by how she was texting me. but i hate to turn someone away thinking i can pull this off. sometimes you can’t. another wasted day.
