I have been a little busy getting everything ready for my show. I also had 2 back to back birthdays to pull off.
My youngest son Andrew turned 25 on Tuesday. I'm not sure how that is possible since I am only 29 myself. So my children are now 25, 26 and 29. Mind blowing for sure. Dinner was my sons choice of Alaskan King crab, stone crab, steak, salad, broccoli and an ice cream cake. Expensive taste for sure.
Wednesday was my puppy Shiloh's 1st birthday. So the family pets got together at my place, had some frosty paws, tore the birthday hats off each other. The adults had salad for dinner and a really yummy cake.
Last night I had my second show. It was good. I had some friends stop by. Met new people. Was asked to be the photographer at the managers wedding in June. I will shoot the wedding because it is informal and at a wine bar downtown. I have not desire to enter the formal wedding market. Let the big guys do it. I also had an invitation to go to the Abacos on a 110 foot yacht and take pictures. The owner of the yacht is the best friend of the guy getting married. I said yes of course. I even said I would help crew for the 5 day trip. He has it hired out. The yacht sleeps 14. OK. Room for me. One of the people who came said she loved my work. She has a degree in photography. She said she was impressed. I was happy.
We took the pictures down last night. Her walls looked really bare after. But it is a bar / night club. And I wasn't sticking around to hang everything up.
I have also spent the last week going to the gym. Riding my motorcycle. Going to the beach. My tan is really dark again.
Today was a gym day, laundry, wash and wax my bike and then I took a nice long ride. Home to shower, pedicure and a nap. Now it's time to pack for my trip.
Tomorrow I will be going to Cabo San Lucas on the Baja peninsula in Mexico. My first real trip out of the country. I am finally getting a stamp on my passport. I will be joining my girlfriend Judy (last picture). This will probably be the last time she goes to her time share there. I think her cancer is getting worse. She's loosing weight hand over fist. Tires even more easily then before. I notice a huge difference in the last months. She's been to tired to go to the beach. She loves the beach and pool. She showed up at my show last night at 9:30. She had been in bed for the last 3 days. I was shocked she came. She's a really special lady and I am so blessed to know her. My kids just love her.
Are we having fun yet? I sure am. I figure I will be home for 3 days and off I go again off on the yacht. I hope it works out. I also having tickets to the Moody Blues the day after I get back. I couldn't resist. They are playing right in my town.
I hope everyone has an awesome week. I will be back on the 24th from Mexico.

This is called "SWAMP BUGGY RACING"!!!!
I do think I have found something that Rednecks really enjoy. I laughed myself silly. Funny. What's really funny is that they have a Swamp Buggy Queen and court. No joke. At the end of the races they throw her into the muddy water. They have door prizes and throw signed Frisbees ( i got one), . One of the queens court even had a camo ball gown on. I swear I don't make this stuff up. I had fun. Lots of the contestants buggies died in the water and had to be towed out by a tractor. The engines on these bad boys cost up to $30 grand. Ouch. Now this is a hobby for the die hards for sure.
What fun things did everyone else do this past week?
Yesterday I drove down to the Keys and took some pictures. Pretty day for sure. I hope everyone else is having as much fun as I have been.
