Have favorite things

I try to approach life with a sense of curiosity and wonderment. I also like to have fun! My dad instilled a sense of curiosity, wonderment, and fun in me early in my life. During our family’s dinner time, Dad would ask Mom and me what we did that day, as well as what was […]

I’m not quite as big a favorite thing person as is Melissa; I sometimes have difficulty telling her my favorite song or similar detail from a concert. Even in RUSH shows where the songs, and visuals, compete with each other, it is difficult for me to pick a favorite. I have some favorites, like my […]

The first rock and roll concert I attended was in 1972, when The Looking Glass, with the hit song, “Brandy,” performed at Fort Myers Middle School. Since then, I have attended hundreds of rock concerts. (There was a period in April, 2018, when David and I saw 20 bands over an 11 day period; we […]

I guess you could say that, for Melissa, RUSH was an acquired taste. We probably all have them, but I liked them from when I first heard The Spirit of the Radio. Melissa reports that I’m a huge fan, but as she has now come to understand, fan appreciation for RUSH is on a sliding […]

This final post about the 5 most fun things David and I have done is about our weirdly fun day in Morocco. David and I went to Spain, to visit our friend, Dr. Linda Foley, who was teaching psychology at the U.S. Navy base in Rota for a year. While we were in Spain, we […]

I don’t know what I expected when we boarded a ferry one early morning in Spain for the relatively short crossing to Tangier. I don’t know what I’d expect if I did it again because it took us to a place so different and unfamiliar than any place we’ve ever visited. The boat was nothing […]

Among the 5 most fun things David and I have done together is riding in the Goodyear Blimp. Oh boy! Most people will lives their entire lives without ever getting to ride in a blimp or a zeppelin, but David and I have had the privilege of riding not once, but twice, in the Goodyear […]

The humming engines of the blimp are unmistakable to those who have heard them with some frequency. There is a difference in the blimp we rode and the current “new” blimp or, more accurately, zeppelin. Watching them fly from the ground is thrilling – seeing how something so big is controlled is pretty amazing. Before […]

This, third, post in the series about the 5 most fun things David and I have done is about balloons, specifically, hot air balloons! As a photographer, David has always been fascinated by hot air balloons. Many years ago, he convinced me to wake up in the middle of the night to attend a hot […]

The Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta is considered the most photographed event in the world. Thousands of people attend and almost everyone has a camera. Or more than one camera like me – I think I had 3 most of the time. In the few seemingly short (sleep deprived) days we were there, I shot 4 or […]

Second in the series of the 5 most fun things David and I have done is riding in a dog sled. There was a period of time when David and I attended ski seminars sponsored by an attorneys organization; I was one of the speakers at these seminars. Because ski seminars are, of course, held […]

Riding a sled was more fun than I anticipated. It was also colder than I could ever have imagined. I got in the snow suit and felt like I was in a space suit and had to get used to moving around in it. Then I had to fit myself into the sled and had […]

This is the first post in a series of 5 that focus on the 5 most fun things David and I have done since we met in 1986. These 5 activities are varied and, interestingly to us, all of them involve some form of transportation. They are not ranked in terms of their degree of […]

We started this blog to share our work and life experiences, so it should seem natural to have a series of posts about fun. Anyone who has read our posts knows that finding ways to break up the pressures of work with an interlude of fun has allowed us to keep us keeping on. Riding […]

Life and Work – Have Fun When You Can

This concept presents itself in many ways. The saying “life is short, eat dessert first” is one way. But, aside from that, building fun into “the plan” is one benefit of operating a small business. While we’ve written things along these lines in the past, recent discussions with family and friends are reminders of the […]

I can’t begin to count the number of times David’s mother, Carole, said, “Have fun!” when David and I were leaving her house to meet with a prospective client (the opposite of having fun, in my opinion); conducting mock jury research (very stressful and hard work, involving long hours); selecting a jury (the ultimate stressful […]

Mardi Gras beads. Why spend time writing a post about Mardi Gras beads? The answer is that Mardi Gras beads are more than just beads. If you have no idea what I’m talking about, then you are among the unfortunate people who have never been to Mardi Gras. David and I have had the pleasure […]

Beads, Beads, good for the heart, to borrow a phrase, with apologies to all. But, seriously, having been on the receiving end of thousands of bead throws, it is hard to explain the excitement of catching, or trying to catch them – it gets competitive. Most people know that, in New Orleans at least, there […]

Chains or Local Restaurants?

On this dimension, I have observed that people fall into 1 of 2 categories. There are people who prefer large, national chain restaurants over local restaurants and those, like me, who prefer local restaurants over chains, for the most part. Perhaps I learned this from my Dad, who was always on the road during his […]

No offense to the readers of this post who like chain restaurants, however, as a rule, I loathe them. I will go out of my way to avoid eating at a chain restaurant whenever possible. I prefer to patronize local eateries wherever I travel, both for business and pleasure. There are exceptions, of course, including […]
