Morning Snack

Some milk and mini Oreo cookies from this morning, because you can’t resist the dunk ’ems, but hey, that’s just me.

Cherry on Top

What could be better than a huge icecream sundae? The history of putting a cherry on top of the icecream mountain probably goes way back to the early 1900s, when icecream parlours, barstool soda shoppes, and Wurlitzer jukeboxes were huge. I usually eat the cherry last, as a lasting momento of the delicious entree I just ate, the appetizing reward you may say. Maraschino cherries are the best – biting into the juicy red bulb, tasting the sweet syrup, and leaving the stem behind on the table for the waitress to clean up later.

Lateness of the Hour

Moon
Darkness in daylight

The darkness consumes my soul

Buried in its presense

Dangerously daring

Under the pale moonlight

Look Up

Hot and Cold

July is hot but the ice cream is cold as always. The hot weather and cold food clash in the open. These pictures are from the Frosty Boy, a favorite summer attraction since the 1970s.

Salt and pepper go together

Like night and day

The sun and the moon

Mint julep to Derby

Branson to Virgin

Julia to food

Blitzkrieg to German

This is the only photo of me and Amy back in 2008 at a pizza parlor. She was the first and I’ve glad I got to share some great memories with her. It was by chance that I met her at a silly high school dance – I was in the right place at the right time, on the outskirts, for her to spot me and ask me to be hers, because for some reason I looked desirable from afar and she said I danced well, if you could even judge it in the dark. None of this would have happened, none of those moments on the porch swing, not those late night phone chats, not that first kiss, if I had ditched that dance and instead concentrated on other things – but I was a guy on a mission that night and came away with what I was looking for – even if I wasn’t expecting anything to really happen but a forgettable homecoming.

Nothing But Blue Skies

In the midst of the mass shootings in Orlando, let’s remember that the world is still a beautiful place and you can still step outside your door and appreciate the view.
