"[My relationships were] like I was in these movies where the script was only half-written. When I’d get to the end of this half-script, the other actors wanted me to ad lib. But I had never gotten the hang of that. That’s why these movies were always box-office failures. Six of them in the past twenty years. I always blew the lines." ~ from my horrible first novel "Learn How To Pretend." (unpublished)(obviously)

Number one son at Christmas. I think he made this face in nearly every photo taken of him that day. Dork.

Cat in the Chair

Another throwaway. I was trying to get a shot of the cat in a chair in our bedroom. It was an interesting color combination with the green walls, red chair, and the yellow of the old lampshade. She moved before I took the picture. and I didn't have the settings right. Still it came out kind of neat. Sort of has a painterly quality. Whatever that means.

Canada Geese

A throwaway photo that was somewhat redeemed with Picasa. I got several shots of Canada geese walking around an island on the Rio Grande. It was tough getting the camera to hold still and this was one that didn't quite work.

I'd been hitting the 'mom juice' a little early when the Squeeze discovered she'd forgotten something at the store. I was left with a 4 year-old and a 5 year-old. I was drunk. They knew it and took advantage of me. While the one on the left gives me the evil eye, the one on the right knifes me in the back.

This is my garden Buddha. Allison got it for me for our first Christmas. (Ironic, eh?). I just got a new digital last week and have been playing with it, and Picasa2.
