I’ve become the kid’s R/C mechanic

For Father’s Day I celebrated by getting both kids an R/C car for their own. Since then they’ve broken pieces and we’ve visited the local hobby shop many times. This is not a bad thing and it was all good clean… Continue Reading →

Paperman

Here’s a great short by Disney Animation. I haven’t yet shown it to my little girl but I am sure she will love it. It’s something I picked up from my RSS feed via Fro Knows Photo. I follow Jared’s… Continue Reading →

Just don’t use it one handed

I’m not sure how it happened but my blog has been possessed by Android smart phone posts. I’m pretty sure I have an add_filter(‘the_content’ , ‘my_function’) WordPress post in my head waiting to get out. Or at least a post… Continue Reading →
