Happy Halloween 2017 Readers!

Hey there readers, I just wanted to wish you a very Happy Halloween. It’s one of my favorite times of the year and I just love all the garish and creepy decorations and costumes that one can find around their neighborhood. As I try to do each year, I’ve cobbled together some visuals that I’ve seen around during my travels. I didn’t go to any extensive hunting this year but did manage to find some cool things.

I like starting with my black cat Spooke and in this photo she is sporting a cute Court Jester collar that I got during the recent TTPM Event that I attended. It has bells on it and I think she looks great in it. I’m glad she lets me indulge in this silliness around the special holidays.

Now its onto a bit of spookified images. I didn’t really go all out in my own place this year but think that perhaps I will do something more next year.

“Happy Independence Day” 2017 America!!!

Hey there readers, it’s Independence Day once again and for those keeping count that means we have been doing this sort of holiday for 241 years since our Country was founded in 1776. That’s still pretty young when compared to some of the other nations of the world but that’s fine by me as I wouldn’t want to live anywhere else. As I’ve done over the years, when a holiday rolls around I try to secure some topical images and share them with you all. Here are a couple of those images in celebration of our nations birth. My first image is actually of the small flag that hangs on the inside door of my apartment. Believe it or not I found this lying in the street some years ago after a parade and I couldn’t let that be the case so I picked it up, washed it off and gave it a good press. Now it hangs proud in the Creative Command HQ for The Chronicles.

These next two images are from my wanderings in my beautiful Bay Ridge neighborhood. This house often sets up a nice display but I’ve never seen the residents to thank them for always upping the decorating game for the area.

Happy Father’s Day To All The Dads Out There

In the past I’ve culled together some images for Mothers’s Day to wish the Mom’s of the world who read this blog a very special day but it’s never been done for Father’s Day and since I don’t want to have protesting outside of the Creative Command HQ I decided to give some equal time. This is our very first blogging wish to the Father’s out there who read this blogsite and of course my own who I got on the phone early and is probably mapping out his next visit to the golf course.

fathers day, fathers day cards

There is a funny story about these images as they were of Pop-Up cards that were left behind by a vendor/exhibitor at the recent Book Expo convention that I attended. Instead of leaving them about for the interested passerby since they had fled the building once expo was over and it became the publicly accessed Book Con, they glued them with some kind of unrelenting bond to the display stand. I liked the look of them so much that I snapped the visual and share it with you all.

Scenes From The 150th Annual Memorial Day Parade (5/29/2017)

Today is Memorial Day and that means its time for the annual Bay Ridge, Brooklyn Memorial Day Parade. This year while a special one as it was the 150th of its kind, did not have the weather on its side and would be rather rainy throughout the course of the event. That was not going to stop me from snapping photographs for readers of the blog to enjoy and I will begin as usual with the video of The Rolling Thunder passing through. There didn’t seem like there was many of them today and I guess with other parades taking place that they had to split them up. Enjoy.

Now it was time to begin the marching and from here on its just going to be the photos to entertain you. With a lot of friends and family not living in the immediate area anymore, I feel this brings a little bit of home to where they live now. Enjoy.

Happy Easter My Dear Readers

We just wanted to take a moment and wish all of our readers a very “Happy Easter” today if they are celebrating. It’s our holiday too for those curious and I am getting ready for the usual practice of morning mass and then some time with family. If this is your celebration we hope that you enjoy the day as well. Of course to our esteemed readers that are still celebrating the Passover holiday we hope that has been wonderful for you.

I didn’t post a lot of images this time around, that happens on occasion. Until next time.
