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.

Mother's Day

Today is Mother's day. It is cool here in Chaumont, NY. A mere 45 degrees at 7:00am. Partly cloudy. Later today I will visit my mother. The apartment that has been vacant since the first of Februray has finally been rented. A fine young man who moved here from Texas. Of the many inquiries I had for this aprtment he stood way out in front of the rest. He is mature and articulate, and seems to have a good outlook on life and strikes me as a self reliat type with a good work ethic. This is a far cry from the last folks that rented the place.
Yesterday we enjoyed Saranac Black Forest beer while grilling jerked chicken wings.
The beer was bitter and strong , just the way I like. This batch of wings was
among the best I ever grilled. Full of flavor, perfectly grilled, spicier than the Devil.

I had a typically full day yesterday. I put in 2 hours of good guitar practice, then went to teach guitar. Got done with that at 2:00. From there I met two of my brothers at the Depauville fire hall where there was a fund raising event for a woman with lukemie. There were sevral bands schedules to play at the event. I popped in with guitar and sound system in hand and play a 30 minute set. From there we went to my home in Chaumont where we grilled jerk chicken wings and drank Saranac beer. By the time that was done it was 8:30. My brothers exited and the Better Half & I watched a movie on TV. It was Crossing Delancey. Not knowing anything about it I looked it up on the net and saw that most people gave it 4 or more stars.
I'm inclined to give it no more than 3.
