A wordless post.
So what happens on a beautiful weekend in SoCal?
Went to visit dad… The workers there told me he’s not eating much as of late. He only had a small salad with a little bit of chicken for lunch. When I asked him if he was hungry, he said no but when I showed him one of his favorite Japanese treats, he went to town.
There goes number two!
Number three down the hatch!
He’s happy now. 🙂 And he did finish the last ball.
Took him one of Alan’s 8×10’s…labeled. He’s 94 now.
My bud Brian drove down from Reno for St. Paddy’s Day weekend – no better excuse to share a stogie together!
Played around with my new Canon SX260 HS point and shoot camera. Never had one that I can remember but it was fun to shoot with.
Superior close up capability.
Hand held. Look at the detail… Not bad for a shaky ol’ fart?
Fish eye setting…
My neighbor’s new son, Gabriel. The father is USAF… I pray for his safe return always.
And finally, these were for me. Like father, like son! LOL

That is great, love the pictures.
Your dad looks good, especially at 94. God bless.
Thank you for your nice comment!
I am sure your neighbor appreciates your prayers. And your dad looks fantastic. The picture with the labels was brilliant and beautiful!!
I expect we’ll see more pictures now??
I don’t know about more pictures but the “keeping the eye on you bloggers” was meant primarily for you and seapunk2….! LOL
Well, unless technology has advanced beyond my computers abilities I don’t think you can keep an eye on us like that! 🙂
Terrific post. Your father’s facial expressions show exactly how he’s feeling at that moment. (eg. Don’t bother me while I’m eating & Here’s my lovely family) You are doing great with your photography, my pictures show that I’m a shaky old fart.
LOL! Thank you for your compliments; greatly appreciated… That little camera was fun. I’ve only shot with SLRs/DSLRs so looking at a little screen is hard to get used to (versus looking through a viewfinder). Let’s see more from you!
I think that wall portrait came out great… Exactly what I wanted!
Loved the visine shot… and the flowers. That was one huge cigar. Looks like your dad was enjoying his eats but may have been a little testy about being photographed in the process. (grin)
Stogie wasn’t all that big but the details captured by the camera were phenomenal. Thanks for the compliments and observations!
You are welcome.
What an expressive face your father has – his grin is contagious. I hope the staff at the facility will follow your example and try to entice him to eat more with foods that tickle his fancy. Lovely work with the new camera!
I hope so too. Just let him eat what he wants…even if its just desserts! 🙂
Your father looks great for age 90! Thank you for sharing the fun and eclectic photos.
Eclectic? Wow, thanks!
I enjoyed the photos, especially of your father going to town on those treats. You really can take some nice pictures!
Well, thanks, amishcreek… and I did peek at your growing vegies from the remaining roots/stalks. I do the green onion in the yard but didn’t know about the onion. Cool experiment and documentation!
great photos – it was nice spending Saturday with you! 😉 And I have to agree you dad looks great – must be from having such a good positive attitude all of his life.
Dad’s doing OK for his age, yes, but its more from genes… 🙂 and the coffee with cream and sugar, the sweets and meat! lol
Cool, then I should look so good at his age! 😉
What a great day! I have visine…
is that one pic a cigar?? i’ll have on of those!
glad your Dad ate!
Send me the Visine in exchange for truffles. LOL Yes, that’s a cigar and not all that big…
Ha! I’ll take a cigar in place of truffles! Did I mention I love negotiating?! lol
Great to see you too Koji! Hayden still talks about the “Orange Hot Rod Mustang”. Thanks again for the Stogies, and keep in touch for Hot August Nights in Reno!
