My favorite part ... smash the cake!

Sooooo cute!

I got my keys! Let's go for a ride! It's my birthday ... I gotta be old enough to drive!

There have been a ton of baby frogs all over the windows & screens every morning. Around 8pm every night, the frog croaking around the pond is deafening & it goes on all night long! It's even really loud when all of the doors & windows are closed. Now I know they've been busy making baby frogs, LOL.

This one jumped into the house when I opened the door to let Stella out. I'm getting pretty good at catch & release.

Great Blue Heron Watchdog

For the first time EVER, Stella just watched, as a Great Blue Heron walked the entire length of the backyard, on the bulkhead. I'm shocked she didn't chase it!

The Coop

I went to Orlando with Mary for a day trip & stopped to eat at The Coop in Winter Park. It's the same company as my favorite BBQ restaurant ... 4 Rivers Smokehouse.

I had the Tamale Pancakes Topped with Pulled Pork. I've definitely never seen this on a menu anywhere else.

Bridge Walk

Today I walked the bridges in downtown JAX with Mary & Nancy. This is the view from the Acosta Bridge towards the Main Street Bridge.

Tyrannosaurus Rex at the Museum of Science & History

Cargo train near the Acosta.

The Tillie Fowler Memorial at Riverwalk. It looks much cooler at night.

The Friendship Fountain looked really nice backlit.

4th of July Weekend

Stella hates this holiday weekend! She wouldn't even look at the camera.

Besides fireworks, there were lots of storms. Thunder, lightning, fireworks & barking! It's always the hardest weekend of the year.

Drone on 17

Chris & I went out on the Stadium Course at TPC Sawgrass this morning to test our new drone. The weather was perfect!

There's always a lot of grass replaced after they remove the hospitality tents from THE PLAYERS Championship.

Senior Fitness & Bowling

Nora teaches fitness & yoga to the residents. Peter shot her class this morning.

Tonight we went to watch Peter shoot Hank bowling. I was able to catch his strobe using the burst mode on my iPhone 6. Pretty cool!

Mom, Marilyn, Hank, Nora, Burt & John pose for a group shot.

Doggy Health Benefits

It has been proven that there are health benefits to owning a dog. They lower blood pressure, lessen stress & anxiety, amongst other things. Peter asked if Stella could pose in some pix with Hank. Now she's really an advertising supermodel!

Peter LOVED working with Stella!

After today's shoot, Peter & I went to dinner. We had 25-years of catching up to do. Mmmmm ... seared tuna.

25 Years Later

Today I hung out with my good friend Peter Ginter, an amazing photographer from Germany. Even though I hadn't seen him in 25 years, he called me a couple of months ago to see if I could help find him active & fit seniors for a commercial shoot. Of course I immediately thought of Hank & his friends. Peter & his crew spent the week in Delray Beach, shooting all sorts of activities.

I love these awesome retro bathing caps!

Test shots in Nora & Burt's backyard.

Peter works at the kitchen table while his assistants James & Katja look on.

Marilyn, Nora & Hank ... frolicking in the surf while Peter, Katja & James cover the action in Delray Beach.
