The cast gift

Every spring millions of men are coaxed, threatened, asked, and coerced into cleaning the garage and house.  It is also know as spring cleaning.  This year my wife and I started in the garage.  As we pulled all the garbage out of the garage and sorted it into piles of keep, trash, and goodwill, I came across several custom Jones soda bottles.

I was immediately asked if I needed these.  To be honest I didn't.  The contents of the bottles were several years old, so, I was definitely not going to drink it.  However, these bottles had lots of sentimental value.

They were a cast gift to me from a 2003 production of "Art" that I directed.  During that show the cast, and crew all drank a lot of Jones soda.  So, the fact that they had Jones create a custom label was really cool. Also, this group of people really means a lot to me.  There are those special shows, and casts that just stick with you, and always hold a special place in your heart.  This is one of those.

So, as I took those bottles to the trash I thought, "I need to hold on to these for posterity."  The picture above is my effort to remember and preserve that time in my life.  I just wanted to share it with you too.

Which Came First?

We have all heard classic philosophical question.  Which came first the chicken or the egg?  However, for this Easter season I thought this might be a nice corollary to that question.

Kiss Me I'm Irish

I was driving back from lunch one day, and cam across this sign.

In all my years of attending church and sunday school, I have never come across this quote.  Enter Tom King.  Tom has a knack of creating great quotes that no one can find in scripture.  So, we jokingly say that most of his quotes come from the book of "Jack."  I think that is where this one must be found.  Happy St. Patricks day.

The go button

My mother-in-law has said that these exist.  I never believed it until now.

Here is another take on it.

I Love You Shadow

The girls and I got up this morning, and the creative juices and the love for mom, (my wife) were flowing. I realize Mother's Day is still over a month away, but we wanted to show mom how much we loved her.  Here is our effort.  I hope you enjoy it.

Happy Early Mother's Day.
