Da Brazza Monkey!

img_7651
Saw this little guy two weeks ago at the Houston Zoo. His name is Flint and he is a Da Brazza Monkey.

At first, Flint stared at me and seemed weirded out by my camera’s shutter noise. I didn’t want to scare him, so I ducked behind a sign. As soon as I hid, he leaned all the way into the netting, and looked around trying to find me.

Things quickly evolved into a game of Peek-a-Poo. He was super cute the whole time and seemed equally upset when I ducked away and startled when I popped back.

Union Coffee Shop!

On our fall trip to New England we stopped at a small town coffee shop. The coffee was really good, but what I found most striking about the place was the mural painted on its interior window, which you can see above. My theory is that the screamer realized he ordered decaf by accident.

Old North Church Dog Tag Memorial!

It’s Veterans Day so I thought this would be a fitting photo to share.

I shot this at The Old North Church in Boston. The church is where the lanterns were hung before Paul Revere road out to let the locals know that the British where coming. Most people recognize the “one if by land, two if by sea” line from the poem written about Revere.

Covered Bridge!

It was a crazy end of summer and a super busy start to fall, but I’m back!

In August, Lisa’s family came for a two week visit and we did a mini-tour of Texas as well as a week at a beach house on South Padre Island. Then I had a family situation and had to fly back to Maryland. Then I had to wrap up fulfillment for my 2017 Gaming Calendar Kickstarter. Then I had to write Volume 4 of Holiday Wars. Then I had to prep for launching two new books.

Now things are FINALLY getting back to normal and I’ll be sharing regular stuff on the blog!

The photo above is from the Franconia Notch State Park in New Hampshire. Lisa and I were able to do a four day weekend to see New England and this was a cute spot we found on our way to see the Flume Gorge, a really popular hiking location.
