Tweet It’s Madonna’s 56th birthday today and in honor of the big event I did something I’ve been wanting to do for a long time — photograph as many of my Madonna tour t-shirts as I could find. Here is Henry the dog inspecting 14 concert shirts. The oldest shirt is from 1990, in the […]

Tweet A couple of weeks ago, the New York Times published an amusing piece by Tim Kreider called, “A Man and His Cat.” It’s about being a Crazy Cat Guy, which Kreider was, even if, unlike me, he didn’t post photos of his cat online. (He did sing to his though.) While reading the essay, […]

Tweet OMG! It’s my gorgeous sister Terri Berry‘s birthday today! In honor of Terri’s birthday falling on a Throwback Thursday, one of her favorite photos. It’s from July 1987. Terri took — and still takes! — great pride in the big hair she achieved that day. In the ’80s, we were all about “bigger is […]

Tweet GeorgeB’s big birthday on Saturday was a lot of fun. After the celebratory dinner, Terri Berry and I lined up with Dad for an updated version of our 1989 birthday photo. Then we gave him kisses … … which inspired his sons-in-law to do the same. My mom and nephew got in on the […]

Tweet My handsome father, GeorgeB, is turning 75 today. The family is getting together for a celebration. GeorgeB is expecting us this time, unlike in 1989, when we threw him a surprise 50th birthday party. Back then, there seemed to be an eternity between me and 50.  Now it’s around the corner. Saying “time flies” […]

Tweet I’m going to be drowning my sorrows in Champagne tonight because it is, indeed, my birthday. As I’ve previously noted, I don’t think birthdays are that much fun anymore, even though they’re better than the alternative.  I was much more thrilled by them when this photo was taken … on Dec. 23, 1984, when […]

Tweet Happy birthday to my gorgeous mother, BarbaraB! I thought I’d celebrate by sharing this March 1967 vacation photo of us. What do you mean, you can’t see me? I’m there! Admittedly, I became a lot easier to spot after I was born in December of that year.  Did you know that during the first […]

Tweet When I had the chance to wear my highly flammable, oversize, costume-store-purchased pirate shirt to an Adam Ant concert last year, I had a Family Guy moment. In the Family Guy episode “Boys Don’t Cry,” the Griffin family is on the run from people who think baby Stewie is possessed by the devil. Stewie […]

Wednesday: Jewelry under $100. Thursday: A beautiful bride and her Wendy Brandes engagement ring. Friday: The NRA […]

Tweet Getting older is infinitely preferable to the alternative. Besides, I’m a late bloomer, so I am convinced the best is yet to come. That said, it’s strange to remember that my current age seemed ancient to me when I was a kid. Oh well, what did I know then? I was young and dumb, […]
