I’ve embarked on another one of my personal projects, and Dad, being a good sport toted me around Austin taking pictures of my shoes. (My shoes are writing reviews.) We stopped by Aster’s for an INCREDIBLY DELICIOUS Ethiopian buffet lunch. I love this place, not only because it has an astro-turf carpeting and all the injera you can eat, but also because of it’s authentic Ethiopian decor. Think 1970s “13 Months of Sunshine” posters, and a full-on green motif from floor to ceiling. Good stuff. ~JE

The only green shack on earth that serves all you can eat Ethiopian buffet every lunch. Ras Tafari approved. #white #converse #atx (Taken with Instagram at Aster’s Ethiopian)

Another thing that used to be a live animal (well, at least the skin of a live animal) the stuffings are all elf-made. This dude was Ryan’s bunny… I think he was largely neglected (sniff) unlike my plush sheep, who got lost in Ethiopia as a result of carting him around with me, I think. ~JE

Even plush bunnies get caught with tongues sticking out, sometimes. (Taken with instagram)

Well, the parental units are moving to Ethiopia ~ as you do. And I’ve been called back to Austin to go through my *eh-hem* crap. This little guy was the first thing we unearthed, he flew to his death amongst my odds and ends. RIP hummingbird, you are now immortalized on an obscure Tumblr blog. ~JE

Another relic found in the rummage. The stub from my social security card. Taken at a time when type-writers were king. ~J

And ending with the beginning. Here you can see Dad in his old studio, which is now my room. ~J
I always liked these shots.  These have some effects I hadn’t seen before.  I’m going to download them. ~G

In a mass spring cleaning, I just found some photography of the first album art concept for Dad’s debut album “Take it Personally.” ~J

Probably post first birthday cake? ~J
That’s it.  From the color of the wall, we were in Springfield, which is where Ryan had his first birthday.  God, kids are sticky!  I never recovered from my own first experience with birthday cake.  Look at those big eyes. ~G
Looks like spaghetti and cake. ~Mom

Baby brother, the first of his kind. ~J
There’s only one of the that kind…sporting an early faux mohawk. ~G
Ryan was born in a German hospital only a few blocks from our house and I walked to the hospital when labor started one evening.  I spent the whole night walking the hallways waiting for Ryan’s brith.  He was finally ready to deliver early the next morning while Dad was at home making a cup of tea and checking on Jessica. I was alone when I got the urge to push and freaked out yelling “pushing, pushing”. The nurse, doctor and Greg came running into the room just as Ryan was popping out. Everyone in the hospital commented on what a beautiful baby he was!  ~Mom

See what I mean, first hand! (Ha. ha.) ~J
Yes, the worse thing someone can tell me: “Don’t look posed” or “Relax this limb I’m trying to manipulate” or “Don’t laugh.”  Always sure to evoke the opposite response.  Thus the consistency in the position of my hands!  Bananagrams…the new Greed. ~G
