Tonight at Leti and Matt’s is a family, la familia, affair for a very special event. As we eat tamales, not just any tamales, hecho a mano tamales by Mrs. Martin, the kind you will never find anywhere but home. Leti’s Mon and Dad are down to San Diego for a very special event as my baby brother, Matt, has a pinning ceremony tomorrow, being it is only 10:30 here.
This is one of those events that come once in a lifetime for a family. Matt will get pinned with his first star in the Navy as a Rear Admiral Lower Half. He is still my baby brother, but as the eldest family member I couldn’t be prouder of him as he carries on a family tradition of serving out Country. Our Grandfather served as a Marine in WWI and Dad served in WWII in the Army Air Corps, his eldest brother served in the Army and now Matt has reached the highest honor serving in the Navy.
Tomorrow I will have more official news and pictures.
Honor, Courage and Commitment
One thing that Mom loved was fall and the Buckeyes, especially the band. And one of the best show ever on stage is The Ohio State Marching Band on the stage at Vets Memorial. Close to the stage where you could feel everything!
This half time show you would love. Enjoy…
I’m not a fan boy nor do I know the ins and outs of the Marvel comic book universe, but the movies from them are great and I thought I’d see what ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ was all about.
Briefly, so as to not give anything away, sort of… GREAT movie, even greater music. Fun to watch and now I have to connect the dots at Marvel. We are Groot, we grove to the music.
At the end of the film the audience applauded and NO one left. Now I have to see how they take the end of the movie, end, and tie it all together. Enjoy the flick, so worth it.
Ck it out.

This Couple’s Shared Passion
Family life cycle photography can be a wonderful thing assuming A. you stay friends with the family and B. you live long enough to do the cycle. I’ve know this family before now Grandma and Grandpa got married, did their wedding and all 3 of the girls. Now doing the grand kids. Fun to see everything come full circle and in someways be a part of the family.
