It rained for a week straight, ending with a snow fall. To celebrate the return of the sun, here are some shots of Joe swinging over the years.
We have about 4,500 photos of Joe. That’s 1,000 a year since he was born, and likely thousands more than were taken of most people my age during our entire lives.
Of all these pictures, I don’t think Joe’s ever been caught on real film. So let me present, captured by a 1973 Yashica Electro 35 in all his Kodak splendor, what I believe to be the first images of Joe on film.
Forget Oprah and Lance Armstrong – what people really want to hear about is blocks.
While in Fayetteville for the holiday, Joe and I stopped by the Airborne & Special Operations Museum. I was working here when I met Lia’s mom and first saw Lia, and where Lia and I later had our wedding reception.
Joe walked the whole thing, no easy task. Here he is with a load of 173rd guys hitting the ground in Vietnam. Go Herd!
Joe and his momma enjoying the colors last weekend at Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden’s GardenFest of Lights.
Joe spent Christmas with his momma’s side of the family this year, in Fayetteville, N.C.
Thanks for the hospitality Nana and Papa!
