About this blog title

I cannot tell you how many times I have shown up at events with a couple of cameras around my neck, a gadget bag full of odds & ends and a lighting kit and have been asked that question. If it happened once every few years, that would be one thing. But it happens a LOT. It's like getting pulled over by the police and he's standing there with uniform, gun, flashing lights and asking him "Are you a cop?" I would love to come back with a witty reply, such as "No, I am Jesus. Don't you recognize my beard?" However, I cannot be that rude.

Day 310: Socks & Snow

I was up a little late last night, so, got up this morning at 7:00 to sunshine on yesterdays snow. Nineteen degrees. A pretty and pleasant day, at least in regard to the weather.
The month has just begun and I see no freelance work on the immediate horizon. I get nervouse, because I need more work to meet all of my obligations. I get this way in the first few days of every month, and something usually comes my way and life keeps going on. For al of the adversity I have faced in recent years i have managed to chop away quite a bit of debt. I surprise myself when I look at the figures.

A terrific buy at Sam's Club: 10 pair of socks for $11.38
Speaking of money, I love to get a good buy for my dollar. Thus, I shop at Sam's Club fairly regularly. I have never given any attention to the clothing they offer for sale, until last night. I was walking through the store and a display of socks caught my eye. It just so happened that I had been thinking about buying some socks. They had ten pair for $11.38, and, they were MADE in USA!  I was thrilled to think that a piece of clothing was still being made in the USA. Also, 10 pair for that price seemed like a great deal to me. So I bought them. I am wearing a pair now & they feel great on the feet. An excellent buy that I reccomend at Sam's Club.
