Where’s Waldo?

Where’s Waldo? Well its hard not to know where Waldo is, he is 20 lbs. heaver and a very active male mix of mostly European Doberman with a little Wiermaraner thrown in. Reesie’s passing had bothered Sue and I more than I thought any pet would. I lost 8   pounds (Reesie’s last gift to me), the first week. So to fill the ache in our hearts, Sue, Syd, and I headed down to the Cincinnati Doberman rescue to see whats available. Syd was representing our Grandchildren for both approval and compatibility.  This is the place where Sue found Reesie, and it is here where we found the most laid back...

Our Best Friend

Our Best Friend What do pets mean to us? Saturday started so wonderful, I forced myself to do get out and exercise early, after a minor workout  my son dropped Armand  (My little Buddy ) off at L A Fitness, and we proceeded  home. The AM was so beautiful ,after many days of heavy rain, I gathered up Sue and Reesie, our faithful Dobie, and headed to a nearby park walking site.  Unfortunately, while I was putting on  Armand’s braces for the walk, Reesie who had already been let out had heart failure and died right in front of  Sue, she was only 7 1/2. What do pets mean to us? Reesie, who was...

I’m Psyched

I’m Psyched Tuesday morning, I will be getting up early and driving two hours to Indianapolis to attend “The Flash Bus 2011 Tour.” The Tour which is winding down is a one day workshop on using off camera small flash, given by two of the very best in the business, Joe McNally and David Hobby.

I also own two books and a Nikon DVD by him, and am a reader of his humorous and instructive blog. David was the first to uncomplicate small flashes for me by way of...

My Little Buddy

My Little Buddy This is Armand! Armand (or ASH, my contribution to his many nicknames) is the youngest of my six grandchildren. I am closest to Ash, both parents work, he lives close, so we have spent two to four days together most weeks of his two years. While I am closest to ASH, I don’t love him more than the other granchildren. I am very fortunate to be a grandfather to five others, four young ladies and one young man, Each with very different and unique personalities. But they do have a lot in common. They are all extremely well raised, polite, of course handsome, and healthy. Ash shares...

The begining

Well guess what, Homer is blogging. When I first learned of blogging, I thought it was the silliest exercise one could do, your diary online? The only thing more of a time waster are those who would read them. But as blogging grew I found some excellent sites to both humor and educate me. Now with a long (and first) overseas trip looming, I have decided that a blog would be a great way to communicate to friends and family. I am sure this site’s format will change as I learn more about what I can and cannot so.
