I’m not sure how I came up with this idea but I thought a cool Throwback Thursday would be a look back at some of my earliest Macro Monday posts.
This past weekend, we took Nathan to the Polar Express as we have the previous three years. But going to this event made me reminisce about past Christmases and how Nathan has aged in that time.
No, not snowflake in the insipid “liberal snowflake!” sense of it all. I mean it a bit more ornamentally. Like, me at about age five. In a snowflake ornament that has seen better days.
Today, we bid a fond farewell to our home phone. Remember these? We all used to have them but more and more people do not anymore.
It's funny the stuff you find when you scroll back through your history on the web. No, I don't mean your browser history. Just the stuff that you do and record on places like Flickr.
At least I think these are from 1995. Maybe 1994. Perhaps 1996. But no earlier, nor any later.
I know I really stretch the envelope of how "Throwback Thursday" is defined with my posts. But I really don't care. To me, it's all about remembering something from the past; not just ruminating on an old photo that I took. I hope that's okay with you.
I found this great shot of a sunset near our home from eight years ago. According to the notes, it’s unfiltered with no alterations or color adjustments at all.
I got a call from Katie at work today and she told me, “Your son found your GameCube controller today.”
Eight years ago, Katie and I went on vacation to Disney World in Orlando. In addition to the Magic Kingdom, we also went to Animal Kingdom.
As I just finished Timothy Zahn’s brand spankin’ new Thrawn: Alliances book yesterday, I thought it would be cool to Throwback 26 years to the first book in the Star Wars Expanded Universe — Zahn’s Heir to the Empire.
I found it kinda funny that Marty did a Throwback Thursday featuring a wedding since I’m doing the same.
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.
