7 Days - Fall 2008

I incorrectly identified the last 7 Days post (from two days ago). It should have read "Fall 2008". I guess my mind is still firmly rooted in Summer, despite all the back-to-school and back-to-work traffic that fills my morning commute.

Anyway, here is the full photo set of my submissions to the latest 7 Days of Self Portraits. Thanks again to Doow over at Dreamdust for putting this whole thing together in the first place.



7Days:1 - I'm a picker

7Days:1 - I'm a picker
Today the boys and I and the cousins went to the Valley and picked 50 lbs of apples and 10 lbs of pears. Definitely got our money's worth taste-testing in the field, too.


7Days:2 - Action

7Days:2 - Action
Though not exactly IN action at the time of this photo, the new bike (!) got to see its first bit of action today. Say it with me: Wheeeee!


7Days:3 - Bring It In

7Days:3 - Bring It In
There's just something about 7 Days and ultimate frisbee (see last time) -- here we have "Sniff", my fall league team bringing it in for a cheer after halftime. We lost. Badly, I might add. But we have fun.


7Days:4 - Invisible Kids

A little shutter play here, making the kids all but disappear. (No comment).


7Days:5 - Crossing the Line (Public/Private)

7days:6 - It's a Good One!

7days:6 - It's a Good One!
The phrase "it's a good one!" goes back a few years for us; graduate school was filled with reruns of Law & Order (and thesis writing, I swear) -- and when one of us would miss an episode, the other would recap it and let us know just how good it was. Tonight had no L&O on the television, but instead the season premiere of Criminal Minds, which also was "A Good One".

That story, beyond being only remotely tangential in the picture you see here, is completely irrelevant. The reason The Lovely Wife is smiling here is because she's trying REALLY hard to indulge me in my pursuit of another 7days submission. I give her full credit for even agreeing to appear, since she's not fond of this side of the camera (I know... how sad for me.).


7Days:7 - Putting this thing to bed

Another family snap to end things off this time around. Thanks to everyone for the great comments. I'm so appreciative of this community.

Oh, and this is Hansel & Gretel. The boys are laughing at the witch being thrown into the cauldron. What can I say? They have a weird sense of humour. Blame their father's influence.
