More Promises

Jim is on vacation in the Florida Panhandle, he’s sporting a paint job best described as “boiled lobster” and “fish belly white” and he smells of coconut oil, aloe, and fried chicken – oddly, women don’t seem to find this an attractive combination…


I know, I know.

I promised you pictures of airplanes and battleships.

Unfortunately, that’s going to have to wait until I get somewhere with, you know, actual bandwidth.

Until then, here’s a picture of yours truly standing on the deck of the submarine Drum, located in Battleship Park, Mobile, Alabama.


You should be impressed with this picture. My 12-year old son took it. Usually when he takes a picture what you get is the top of my head or a small piece of my sleeve and blue sky or grass taken at odd and incomprehensible angles. I thought he did a pretty good job centering this one. Also you’ll notice that none of his fingers are actually in view, I believe this is a first.

Sniff, they grow up so fast.


  1. You look like he caught you about to climb -- in clear violation of the signage...

    I envision the threat of punishment sounding something like, "I'll tell Mom."

  2. Do you STILL have that bluetooth piece in your ear?

  3. Michelle, analysis of the picture using sooper sekret software known only to me an certain unnamed security agencies suggests that the ubiquitous bluetooth piece is, in fact, in his ear.

    Jim, your son did a most excellent job of centering you in the picture.

  4. Yes, the BT ear piece is still in my ear.

    My BT earpiece is to me as is texting to Random Michelle. You may henceforth consider it a feature, not a bug.

  5. Jim, very rarely is one of my quirks considered a feature and not a bug.

    But if you like the txting, I can certainly arrange more!
