I think Michael would have liked this.

It’s a parody video done by the Norwegian Olympic ski team.

Alright For Now October 4, 2017

Posted by skinbad in Family, Music.

I like Tom Petty’s music a lot. When my kids were little and it was my turn to try to get them to sleep, sometimes I’d sing to them. I tried to keep the singing very soft because I’m very bad. Also, it seemed I would run out of age-appropriate “lullaby” songs very quickly, so I would improvise. Alright For Now became one of my “go tos.” Evil Con Carne is our oldest, and when he was a little tyke and his sisters were babies, I’d have to be careful to sing extra quiet and close the door because he would get upset because he thought Alright For Now was HIS song. Anyway, thanks for lots of good music, Mr. Petty. I can’t think of a song of yours I don’t enjoy.

20170812_16462520170812_164552Not much time to post, I’ve been home for the first time in over a month and over the weekend spent less than 24 hours total at home because when you’ve been gone that long there’s always a crap load of stuff that needs doing. Here’s a picture I got somewhere down around Virginia. If I remember correctly we were at a brake check parking lot at the top of 5 miles of 6% grade hauling 45,000 pounds. It was pouring rain hard enough to force us to pullover at one point by the time we got the bottom of the mountain. It was actually the day that whole antifa vs skin heads thing happened. As we rolled through I noticed police and fire trucks posted at every on ramp and off ramp. I’m guessing to prevent blocking the freeway.

Need to head off to church in a minute. We’re supposed to head back to Allentown, PA to pick up our tractor later today. We live in the OKC area and no that’s not normal to be parked so far away when you have home time. It’s about 1500 miles from here. If I’ve got time before I hit the road I’ll try to post about it later. We have to be back by Tuesday morning for a delivery and won’t be home again until October 3rd. If the wheels aren’t turning, you aren’t earning.

Until then, enjoy this nice sunset from Mississippi.

A Rare and Coveted Innocent Bystanders Endorsement April 24, 2017

Posted by skinbad in Family, History, Technology.

My dad has quite a few pictures on slides. When I was a little tyke, he would sometimes shoot them up on the wall for the viewing pleasure of me and my brothers–which I remember being a lot of fun. Some were from his tour of duty in Japan with the Army and many others were from his college days and the early married years with my mom. Over the years, I’ve occasionally thought about those and thought that “someone” really needed to get on the ball and digitize all those slides before everything is lost and dad and mom aren’t around to remember any of the details of the pictures.

Well. It is finished. My wife’s sister bought a little machine and did her dad’s slides and we got our hands on it. After doing all the slides, Mrs. Skinny got started on all the negatives she had in boxes and we got all those done as well. We’ve probably scanned about 5,000 total. I’m sure there are competitors to what we used that would work well, but I have to say I’m fairly impressed with the gadget. It’s a “jumble All-in-One.”

There is less handling with negatives, so they go quite fast. Of course the slides are handled one at a time, but still, if you work at it for an hour, you’ll get a lot done. If you have been dreading such a project, I recommend getting something like this and getting it done. They are about $130 on Amazon.
