Conversation From Yesterday...

Right before the steaks went on the grill...

David: You like your steak burnt?

Donna (David’s wife): No

David: You like your steak burnt?

RIchard: No

David: You like your steak burnt?

Tom (me): No

David: You like your steak burnt?

Michele: No

David: You like your steak burnt?

Richard (Michele’s SO): No

David: You like your steak burnt?

Brett (Donna and David’s son): No

Donna: Now David, you know no one likes to eat shoe leather except you!


Thanks to Richard and Michele for introducing me to these wonderful folk. David and Donna live out in the (almost) country outside of Houston on about two acres of (what will be) some wonderfully landscaped property. Already well on its way too.

Great conversations and good times! Once again I needed to be shown (apparently) that life need not be the miserable piece of shit that mine is right now.

Michele, David and I all work for The Big Clam. All of us are long term folk and have spent some time working in the same divisions, albeit not at the same time. And we have that unique bond that comes from dealing with (and sometimes being a victim of) the absurdity that comes from working for a huge multi-national corporation.

Michele and Richard have saved my sanity on more that one occasion, yesterday being one of these times. Dunno what I would have done without them yesterday.

Bonus! Richard had a 52mm IR (infrared) filter and he let me fool with it yesterday in the backyard. Need to get one of these...Cool stuff!

Makes for some eerie black and white work in post processing. (next Post or two!) Have a few pictures to share.
