We just got back from an extended trip out to Seattle and Bellingham, to visit my mom and my sister, respectively. Sister (Julie) and her hubbie Mike just had their first baby, Madeline.

Lastly, here’s Mom pushing 2 generations of her boys. And Finn with Mom’s new pooch.

Another Haul of Records…


June 24, 2013

Looking at my blog posts from the last couple weeks, one might conclude I have a bit of a problem…

Sam invited me to join him at a great little record show in Michigan. Of which there are many, apparently. Uh oh.

Listening to “Fear of Music” right now. Brilliant.

New Shirts

And we did a Catbot for Auntie Julie’s baby shower, and just got one for Cormac. Not so sure Ozzie approves…

Wow: New Sigur Rós


June 20, 2013

The new album “Kveikur” is fantastic. Big, menacing sounds and their signature epic, soaring moments. Stopped me in my tracks.

Must be record season…

Father’s Day found me with the day off and a record fair to attend…

Yesterday’s Haul of Records

And these are all from one shop: Oak Park Records.

Collages from This Weekend

We painted and fixed-up our basement as a new play area for the kids. I have a tiny corner with my little project table. So I’m finally getting back into doing collages for a new Art-o-mat series.
