A lot of people may already know this, but yesterday was Nathan's first day of school!

Sorry this post is a day late. I just couldn't bring myself to post this when the news of Gene Wilder's passing dropped.
I had something else planned as a post until I heard rumblings that Gene Wilder has died.
I'm sure this doesn't just apply to Nathan, so I'm going to ask, why is it that a kid can completely ignore a toy or some other object until nearly immediately after you put it away because of this lack of attention?
Today we celebrated Nathan's fourth birthday party. As we've done the past two years, we held it at our local pool.
Something is amiss with the Dove chocolate company.
I'm pretty certain this picture was taken in the mid- to late-80s at my grandparents' club down in Florida.
I dreamt a new short story last night. While I still have to write it down, this go round, I also have to figure out how best to share it.
Years ago, my dad had asked me to create a logo for a side business he was considering starting up. It never materialized, but his request had always stuck with me for one simple reason... I am terrible at logo design.
I really would've accepted any "whipped cream"-esque answer to last week's challenge photo.
The Rio Olympics are done. Katie and I are really rather sad about that.
Katie went to see Bad Moms with our SiL. I don't expect her back for a while because they like to go out afterwards.
The next week or so is a big time for Nathan.
Today, I took the day off to spend with Katie and Nathan. We decided a good use for the day would be to go to the pool again before it closes for the season. Woo!
Watching the Olympics, Katie and I have seen an inordinate number of ads for some new reality show on NBC called Better Late Than Never.
I recently discovered something while checking out my comic books. Apparently one of my favorite comic books, Kanan: The Last Padawan, hadn't dropped a new issue in about four months or so.
It was a bit obscure last week, but one of Katie's cousins correctly guessed the Macro Monday challenge photo.
While I wish this was actually the product of Adam Driver, I will have to settle for a fan voice re-creation as well as recycled footage from Star Wars: The Force Awakens. But I'll take it as this is one of the most hilarious things I've seen in a couple of days.
I was listening to a podcast recently that made mention about how funny it is that the Summer Olympics are being held in Brazil.
I discovered a feature in the Fitbit app recently that I had never paid attention to previously... their activity tracker.
No, not the rapper, but the old computer company, Texas Instruments.
Want some insight into how my strange brain operates?
Believe, if you will, that Donald Trump's words today were spoken for no reason other than to simply activate the Second Amendment-loving populace of this country into voting to save their gun collections. I can see that, I really can. I believe it may have even been one of his intents by saying it.
Man! So many people got last week's Challenge Photo that, as stated in the text box on the solution image, I'm not even going to bother listing them all. But I will say that I'm not sure I would have gotten it had I not been the one to take the photo in the first place.
What the hell is wrong with people that they have to do this?
Last night, Katie and I went with my bro and SiL to an outdoor concert featuring The Temptations and The Beach Boys.
The other day, Katie got a call from our local library. Apparently she had won an Amazon Echo in a drawing tied to their Summer Reading Program.
Back when we lived in Connecticut, my brother and I took up Kenpo Karate. The following picture is evidence of this endeavor.
I'm still in shock over the news that they're remaking Splash... but featuring a merman... to be played by Channing Tatum.
Ah the goals. The dreaded feared loathed goals. Why do I do this to myself?
What I put out there as last week's Challenge Photo wasn't really that tough. But it required looking at it differently.
