When I was a kid…
Maybe I’m completely wrong, but I swear girls used to aspire to be pretty. It happened slowly, I think it might have started with leggins, but the outfits girls started to wear became more and more absurd. I’m not saying that Bucks County fashion world is getting worse or better, but it’s a long way from the Gap outfits that dominated RKDeem’s high school years. I think there’s definitely more experientation, intentional clashing, and a confident trashiness about it, it seems so European. I think a pretty girl in a pretty dress might just get made fun of or beaten up now days.
Last night I played the last game of the regular season for my Wednesday night team. If you recall, I was trying to become the MVP of the league, I may come up just short. I hit a homerun and almost hit another, but the outfielder reached over the fence and snagged it before it went out of the ballpark. We will see what ends up happening, but it was a good season for me none the less. After the game, The Edman and I went to the bar and caught the end of the Phillies game and saw them clinch their series allowing them to proceed to the World Series. Everyone was happy, shots were being poured, people were celebrating, and for the next week, smiles will be on the faces of all things Philadelphia. I think we need to watch some World Series games together, who’s going to host the party, I nominate Jay, I’ll bring the Miller Lite. I also promise to clean up any mess if Jaclyn gives birth at your house while the game is on.
By the way, speaking of Jaclyn, I want to say women are the best. I came home from work yesterday to see little snakes on our sidewalk, a bat on the mailbox, and a spooky sign on our door that says, “Enter if you dare”. My amazing wife decorated the house for Halloween. She does so much to make things festive, that is very cool.
I read a quote by Mark Twain today, it made me want to take Winston all over the world:
Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one’s lifetime.
Dumb and Dumber is a very funny movie, one of my favorite parts of the movie takes place in front of a 7/11. Here’s a website dedicated to that scene:
A couple more photos from Jim Thorpe:
Deer Slayer = Cool
Luckily for these turkeys, I am no Turkey Slayer. I am a Turkey Photographer. I shot these turkeys with my camera while driving to our house in the Poconos, they were about a block away and didn’t care that I was in my honda pulled up right next to them. Ben Franklin knew what he’s talking about, they are bad ass birds.
