About this photo: The laundry extravaganza continues. You can be a part of it, too, by following this link. Freshly clean goodness awaits.I wasn't kidding when I said our kids set up shop in the laundry room after we got the new washer and dryer up and running. So fascinated were we all by the reality of actual machines that actually worked, we gathered as a family in front of the two newest robotic additions to the household and stared at them as they did their thing.
Here, Zach takes his turn on the step stool we set up just for this occasion. I know it may seem a little strange to be excited by something like this. But we've always written our own script when it comes to stuff like this, and if it results in a happy shared memory for our kids, then it's anything but strange to us.
Your turn: If I'm not watching television I'm watching...what? And why?
About our last CT photo of a body hanging under balloons in the midday sky: This definitely ranks as one of the weirdest pictures I've taken in a while. It was a hard scene to compose, as I was shooting directly into the sun - usually a no-no for a whole lot of photographic and ocular safety reasons - and ended up using the balloons themselves to shield the shot. Making matters worse: I was in the middle of a crowd of people at the time, so maneuvering around the hot pavement to track the windblown balloons while being jostled by strangers was an adventure in itself. Honorable menschens go to these fine folks:
- Bernie "Klaatu" Madoff: "Hubert couldn't make the balloon payment on his mortgage."
- Gallow: "Anybody got a pin?"
So, yes, she is my lovely and inspiring wife. And not a day goes by that she doesn't finish my sentences, reflect what I'm thinking or simply read my mind. And not a day goes by that I don't stop for a moment and thank G-d she chose me. Please head over her way and share a happy or two with her.
