About Me:
Hi, My name is Pam - I'm a Writer/Photographer who pays the bills by writing for a press office. Not a bad gig - they pay the bills, but writing press releases all day gets (yawn) a little redundant.

So, in order to keep myself happy I write other stuff and shoot lots of pictures for fun and occasionally, even make a buck.

Over the years, I've raised two really wonderful boys and stayed married.

I have also done about a million jobs in my lifetime. I have sold sweepers, owned and operated a kite shoppe, dressed in various costumes and delivered balloons (my favorite was a gorilla, of course the lady of the evening had certain benefits).

The year after I lost my dad, my best friend Bob and my dog Castle within a few months of one another, I decided I needed to go back to school and get a different degree - yep I was that adult student you've heard stories about. This was when the words began to flow.

I graduated at the age of 41 with a minor in English and a degree in Communications and Broadcasting. I worked for a TV station, as a photographer/writer, and a radio station as a disc jockey (Kate in the morning) doing morning drive.

That kind of brings us to current day - although I really miss the rush I got chasing a fire truck, or meeting all the interesting people on a daily basis, my current gig gives me lots better hours - and that's important when you have a family. I look forward to becoming a part of this community.

cheers

Happy Labor Day

The unofficial end of summer often causes me to reflect on the happenings of the previous few months. Honestly, I am anticipating the fall even though I LIVE for the summer months. The fall brings all those beautiful colors and as a photographer, that part is AWESOME!!!



This fall brings a new chapter to my life. The last ten years have taken me with my kids to hundreds of band competitions (yes we are a family of band nerds and VERY proud of it) my youngest son Mike graduated high… Continue

Butterflies: angels or just bugs? You decide.

January 24, 1997 - that's the day my dad died. He was my best friend and it was very hard to say goodbye.



December 24, 1997 - that's the day my friend Bob died. Since friends are NEVER supposed to die - it was equally hard to say goodbye.



October 24, 2005 - that's the day I lost my mom.



April 1, 1987 - that's the day I opened my business, it was a kite shoppe in my little hometown. Most likely the craziest thing I have ever done, but I was desperate. I needed a… Continue

A self indulged rant

Have you ever had a day when no matter how much you try, all the words apparently come out wrong - even if they don't? Yeah, I know everyone has had those kind of days, but today seemed worse than normal.



You know it wasn't even like I said things wrong. I think the whole problem was that the person with whom I was speaking just didn't want to hear anything I said. This guy judged me without even knowing me. That annoys me as much as having people say "girls can't play baseball or… Continue

No problem :) I'm frequently on the receiving end of someone else's bad day, so I know the feeling.

Hey Pam..

...yeah, our life has had its "kicks," sometimes in the teeth, sometimes the way you mean (smile) ... but even when it's been in the teeth, it's been in the teeth in some wonderful places ... same with the good "kicks"...

...and we just got back from the desert and 4 nights of Perseid meteors. Twas grand. The whole get-away was grand: peace and quiet, introspection, a swimming pool, dinners on the patio while jazz and Pink Floyd played quietly, and the starry sky ... lord, the starry sky...

...but we're back in the saddle, but that's only for twov weeks. We're off to Africa for two weeks, leavin' the 30th!!!

Peace,
Gregg

Africa ... yikes...

Gregg: I can't wait to see your photo's when you get back. Doesn't it just take forever when you're waiting for Vay Kay?? But then before you know it, you'll be home because vacation was over. It's just not fair. I'm glad you got extra memory cards. Way To Go!!! Like I said - I can't wait to see your photo's. Make sure you let me know when you get home so I can take a look. Have a great time - be safe!!!
