Busy week. Missed that feeling. Short updates this time, and a day early. I can post it today, not sure about tomorrow.

  • πŸ“· Last part of the portraits session past Friday, and a new gig on Saturday. A respected gallery in town had two shows opening on the same day (Saturday), celebrating their 60th anniversary, and I was tasked with documenting the event. Again, not my favorite thing, but it’s a job. Can’t complain. Not complaining.

  • 🐠 Dinner for everyone! Full house! The Italians were back, and there’s always a lot of people showing up along with them. We were the ones hosting this time. Fun!

  • πŸ› Another meal worth mentioning is the one we had for lunch, on Sunday. At brother-in-law’s wife’s parents (is there a name for that?). So nice. We stayed the whole afternoon. They are the sweetest, and are super excited their grandson is coming soon. They thought it would be nice to throw another lunch party for my in-laws, and of course close family is invited as well.

  • πŸ¦„ tinyMovieStar broke a snow globe unicorn, and was really sad, sweet thing. But then the Grannies arrived, so all is good. I thought she might not remember it anymore, but the memory on this one is strong. She still mentioned the unicorn a few days later. Also said she missed ChouriΓ§o, the one that stayed behind in Istanbul. She gets REALLY attached to them.

  • πŸ₯΅ editing,

  • πŸ—³οΈ And back on the campaign trail, with my usual gang of politicians. I like them, and have a lot of fun doing this. Sadly we don’t have an election every year. It’s going to be a busy month, and the election happens on my birthday. I’m sure I’ll post a ton of photos from the road, you’ve been warned. It started already.

  • πŸ“Ί mr.&mrs. smith. The end of The Crown. Sad there will be no more. But just got a notification about the new Tokyo Vice season, so there’s that…

  • 🍿 The Greatest Night in Pop. Saw it last week, but forgot to add it. It was great.
