Of Walk-Abouts and Great White Sharks…

Posted by Les Becker on February 27, 2007 in Photography, The Walk-About |

It was, ummm…. “suggested” that I go back to my Walk-Abouts. “But I walk everywhere!” sez I. “You walk to get somewhere. You should walk to see something,” sez They. Firmly. “And take pictures.” Aha! I see a way out of this… “I fried my camera.” “You need a camera? You can have my camera. […]


I’m Too Old For This…

School, that is… my learning curve is close to non-existent, now, I think. It takes me forever to get the hang of things, and then, all of a sudden, it all comes clear. Hopefully, I can retain it, though, because I got a job offer. Fingers crossed, and all that. I got The Web Design […]

I have a new hero, and her name is Jenny Owen Youngs. Her song F**k Was I made me laugh out loud today. And now that I have it on repeat in winamp, have the lyrics memorized, and can sing it without laughing (almost), I am beginning to see some of the merits of singlehood: […]

Snow Day!

Posted by Les Becker on February 7, 2007 in School |

Schools aren’t closed, but the buses are cancelled, which leaves me at home with a very happy child. It looks as if the recycling truck has been cancelled as well, although that remains to be seen. You notice those holes in the snowbank, though? That’s where the City Guys actually dug around and pulled out […]
