je t’amie mon amor

Posted on Apr 22, 2012 in Family

I sent Tu a cute picture that I really liked.  It was a picture two fingers kissing in France and the man finger is saying to the woman finger jet’aime mon amar.  She remembered a picture that we took a couple of years ago and it was almost the same.  I think they are almost identical, what do you think?

Fresh, stylish and forever young at 70

Posted on Apr 17, 2012 in Family

My mom has had 12 kids, raised them, worked 10 hours a day running an insurance agency and lived a very active and busy lifestyle and she keeps getting younger and younger with each passing year.  It is fantastic to see the results of a healthy, active and positive lifestyle and what it can do for you.  This is my mom – she is 70 and she is still smashing, fresh faced and stylish.

Happy Easter Everybunny

Posted on Apr 9, 2012 in Family

It was a great down at El Rancho Patricio and Monica.  It turns out the Ranch is becoming quite the place to hang out and enjoy life – I find myself heading down there quite a bit for events and parties these days.   Patrick and Monica threw a smashing Easter Party at their house and the highlight of the event was the Easter Egg hunt where they hid over 188 eggs filled with candy and money for the kiddy kiddies.   The weather was perfect, the food was awesome and everyone had a very good time.  Look at this little cutie baby and how much fun she had – at one point she was eating pop rocks and making the funniest faces. Nice Easter all around.

Eoin Blue works the ranch

Posted on Apr 8, 2012 in Family

It’s been a long day on the ranch; I mean one long day.  After baling a barnful of hay, corralling the cows and repairing a few hundred yards of broken down fence Eoin Blue decides to call it a day and get some chow. He gets in his faithful blue truck – the same one that he has had for 15 years – and slowly looks over the good work that he has accomplished.  It feels good to have a nice productive day on the ranch and while the work was hard it was something that was sorely needed to keep his families ranch in tip top shape.  Eoin Blue starts up the truck with a roar and smiles to himself as he slowly backs up – its been a great day.  And I’ll probably wake up and do it all over again.

Geno in the Cardboard Ship

Posted on Apr 6, 2012 in Family

Geno is in the South Pacific.  He is alone in a Cardboard ship drifting amidst the wreckage of submarines and battleships.  In his Cardboard naval ship his gun turrets made out of penny whistles and cardboard are set to launch missles at the enemy.  The enemy could be anywhere.  Geno begins barking orders in the heat of battle to his squadron.  Fight, he tells them.  Fight on.  We will destroy our enemy.

Bridget’s Window

Posted on Apr 4, 2012 in Family

Bridget has a very nice window in her front room.  There is a nice antique couch with a side table and some nice flowers on it.  Sun pours through the windows which are covered with white sheer and some cream colored drapes.  The setting is quite nice and has a very warm charm to it.  I got a chance to take a picture of Bridget in front of her nice window today.  We were finishing off a big photography project for her and it turned out quite nice.

Writing Songs With Kevin

Posted on Apr 2, 2012 in Family

I had a pretty amazing day with my enormously talented nephew – Kevin Nash.  Kevin is one of the most amazing and talented musicians that I have met in my life and to think the bonus is that he is my nephew.  Kevin’s core talent is his ability to play just about any musical genre at the drop of a hat.  I think that his ability to improvise is second to none. I can begin playing a funky jam and he will come up with the most amazing lick to play along with it.  It is amazing to watch.

Kevin is at a bit of a cross roads in his life; having just graduated from College, quitting his job and breaking up with his girlfriend of many years he is more free than he has ever been in his life.  But with that freedom comes some apprehension and fear.  Kevin wants to begin starting his music career and if there is anyone that can do it, it his him. I hope he can because the music that he composes is some of the most beautiful that I have ever heard and I want to hear as many songs from his as I can in my life.
