6th Grade Dance

Assigned partners, new ones every dance, prescribed on pre-printed dance cards, parents invited. 2 blazers that fit last year, now 3/4 sleeve. 22 songs and dances, practiced all year. End of elementary school right of passage. Onward ho.


Worldly Observations

This gentleman was leading a group of tourists at Universal Studios, who I had to judge by their shoes and cameras, were from Japan. During our recent visit there, I was struck by the nation’s commitment to DSLR cameras and unique footwear. I’ve never seen as many different styles of shoe as I did on the feet of Japanese train passengers. 

This guy today also had clappy hands 👏 to direct his group, but that was just a bonus.

My own feet were killing me despite my sensible but decidedly American running shoes. So, while the rest of the family was in the souvenir shop, I sat on a curb and marveled at footwear:

I also noticed in Japan that women in particular like to dress like twins. I can’t confirm that these ladies are Japanese, but world travel has opened me up to the possibility that they very well may be. 

Notes to Self and Others

IMG_5086.JPGI like to think of myself as technologically capable. But there is sometimes a little whisper in the back of my brain that says “it’s way beyond you.” I’m pretty sure these notes that reside on most electronics belonging to Roger have something to do with it.  Useful to him, but to me they are reminders that nothing is quite as straightforward as it seems.IMG_5087.JPGPerhaps someone in the ecycling world will create poetry from them:

Records clean, monitors okay!

Does not Trans. No squelch.

Playback (sometimes) left chan noisy.

Phones and line. Open door before writing to A drive.IMG_5088.JPG
