I had completely forgotten about this photo. We were in Arlington Heights in 2010 shopping for something or other when I noticed a shattered and abandoned skateboard on the sidewalk.
Happy belated birthday, USA! 🇺🇸
While I apologize for giving you two photo-based posts in as many days, I just started down Memory Road in Flickr when I saw that nine years ago (give or take a few weeks), Katie and I were at Naper Days watching Matthew Sweet perform live under the stars.
Here’s an interesting pair of Throwback Thursday photos for you from the iPhone 4 launch at the Apple Store - Main Place (Naperville) on June 24, 2010.
I just discovered that Katie’s and my trip through southern Florida — where we drove down to Sanibel Island, across through the Everglades, down to Key West, up to Miami, and then up to my grandmother’s home north of Orlando — was 10 years ago this month.
Got a pair of Throwback Thursdays for you this week!
Remember those old print ads and commercials with the bright monochromatic backgrounds and the dancing black silhouettes sporting bright, white iPods?
I’ve been listening to a lot of metal and punk music lately. It’s really been filling a de-stressing need I have. So this shot of Nathan from October 2016 channeling his Sid Vicious-ness fit the mood perfectly.
Back in 1987, I was visiting my friend Steve in Kentucky. In the year since we’d last met up, he had changed a lot as kids who are 12 going on 13 are wont to do.
Back in the day when I still had a French press, I used to get my coffee beans a little overground.
Nathan was always kinda odd when it came to stuffed animals. For the first nearly four years of his life, he didn’t care.
I can’t believe it was nearly 12 years ago that Katie and I flew out to San Francisco and met up with my brother and his then-girlfriend/now-wife for a couples’ vacation.
Several years ago, I was having a bad day at work when I got a random email that I almost didn’t read. But I did.
Since I recently celebrated my 20th anniversary of online journaling/blogging, I thought a cool #ThrowbackThursday might be to share some of my old blog banners. It's possible I've done this before, but oh well. Isn't that what #ThrowbackThursday is all about? Reminiscing?
In celebration of St. Patrick’s Day this Saturday, how about this photo of Katie and I when we went out with my brother and his fiancée and a neighbor back in 2006?
Got a double dose of #ThrowbackThursday for you today.
Remember the good old days of making mix tapes for friends or someone special? Then it was mix CDs, maybe mix minidiscs (if you were Katie and I) and, to a lesser degree, mix MP3 playlists.
One of the greatest photos in the history of our family... the very first photo of our new family.
As tomorrow is yet another predicted “snowpacolypse” or “snowmageddon” or whatever the hell you wanna call it (drama queens), and Nathan’s school has already been canceled (wusses), howsabout a related TBT...
I’ve always loved this photo and used it as a wallpaper on my old iPad.
The actual, physical act, not the band. Katie and I when we went sledding with my brother and then-future sister-in-law.
I call this my Leisure Suit Kevin look. Damn I’m cute.
Howsabout a throwback to something I’ve done very little with in the last, well, long freakin’ time. Reading.
How’s this for a throwback? It’s an original head from a really old LEGO figure before they had minifigures. For the sake of scale, Yondu, at right, is about an inch and a half tall.
You like that alphabet soup title? It’s Throwback Thursday: XRT (radio station) Big Holiday Concert. In this case, 93.1 FM’s holiday concert from December 11, 2009, featuring opening acts Pete Yorn and Phoenix and headliner The Flaming Lips.
My longtime pal, Karl, posted a request on his Facebook page asking people to type a single word describing how you met him. Another friend, Lynne, posted “LostBlog,” which, despite being two words, brought back memories of one of the coolest things I’ve ever done in my near two decades of blogging...
I really hope you all had a great Thanksgiving (if you’re in the U.S., of course) with whomever you elected to spend it.
Just a little more than a week ago marked the eight-year anniversary since my brother and I graduated from the Fire Academy.
Halloween is my favorite holiday. It always has been; always will be. It’s quickly becoming Nathan’s favorite, too, because he loves cosplay. Oh man, I can’t wait until I can take him to a Comic Con.
Why, yes. Yes I do like taking pictures of sunsets. It’s one of my favorite things. I don’t care how cliché it may seem, sunset photos are awesome.
Remember oh-so-many years ago when Oprah Winfrey stood behind Book-of-the-Month-Club awardee James Frey when his book A Million Little Pieces was proven to not be as non-fiction as originally purported?
I always really loved this photo I snapped of a sunset over the I-88 tollway. It was a wallpaper on my old work computer.
I thought it might be interesting to post my first photos on Flickr and Instagram as a Throwback Thursday this week. Why not, right?
It should be obvious where this Throwback Thursday was taken... el Gran Cañon!
Last year, I posted a Throwback Thursday of Katie with Olympic figure skating champion Evan Lysacek and his Dancing with the Stars partner Anna Trebunskya from 2010.
