It’s kinda amazing how far toys have come since I was a kid.
Okay, it’s not a very far Throwback — more like a bit of a Tossback — as these photos are only from last Thursday and a family trip we took to Medieval Times in Schaumburg, IL.
We went to the pool tonight to celebrate Christmas in July. Yes, they had a Santa and elves and reindeer and games and Christmas music and all that jazz.
As it’s both Independence Day here in the U.S. and a throwback Thursday, how about a couple old photos of Nathan and me from pat fireworks parties? I was hoping I had one of all three of us, but I don’t. Hmm...
Seeing as how Nathan is a full-fledged "little man" now and trying to get him to smile for the camera is like that episode of Friends with Chandler completely incapable of smiling for his engagement photos, I thought it might be nice to reflect back on Nathan's very first smile.
Seeing as how tomorrow is his last day as a Kindergartener, it seemed appropriate to spend this Throwback Thursday wishing this year didn’t go by so quickly.
As I finally got off my butt and bought my ticket for Sunday at Pitchfork Music Festival, which is securely stored in my Wallet app...
I ran out of cloud storage space in Dropbox years ago. The curse of low capacity and the unwillingness to pay for added space. So I don’t really go in the app much as a result.
Wanna see a really old picture of me? Here you go.
Approximately 10 years ago, Katie and I were downtown with her brother and his wife (girlfriend then) to attend a Rocco DeLuca and the Burden concert.
10 years ago yesterday, I snapped this pic...
We re-arranged our entertainment cabinet at home and, afterward, while sitting in the couch, the ever familiar dock connector end was shining out at me like a beacon.
Earlier this week marked the eighth birthday of my Hyundai Sonata.
Seven years ago, I was in line for my pretzel bagel and coffee at an Einstein’s Bagels when I saw a guy playing a banjo at another table.
Tonight, I’m throwing back five years to a family party at the house of one of Katie’s aunts and uncles. At this party, Nathan and his cousin Ava decided to take a turn at the piano.
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.
