My daughter Mollie… and I am only going to give the back story on this once, so read this post…. part 2…

a 1

My daughter, Mollie, on the London Eye. Once again, I am not going to explain when these pictures were taken, because I did that in the first post of the series.

a 2

Then again, I also said I wouldn’t post them in any particular order, since they came from at least two cameras and three cell phones… and yet, there we are, sitting on the steps behind the palace of Versailles…

a 3

And there we are waiting to get in to the palace…

a 4

And there we are in the hall of mirrors inside the palace…

a 5

And in the palace again…

a 6

And again. I would like to suggest you go back to 2015 and read all about this trip in order, because my commentary is freekin’ hilarious.

a 7

That must be London… pretty sure the palace didn’t have a fish and chips room.

a 8

And… okay, I don’t remember where that was taken.

a 9

But I do remember that Mollie was the only one who was comfortable standing on the glass floor of the observation deck of the Eiffel Tower.

My daughter Mollie… and I am only going to give the back story on this once, so read this post…. part 1…

a 1

Okay, I will try to make this simple, because I am on pain meds for my back. That is Mollie, our younger daughter. Now that she is 18, her mom says she can be on the blog. But she didn’t specifically say that I could only show pictures taken after Mollie turned 18. Ha! I was on Facebook, and it asked me if I wanted to share some memories from our 2015 trip to Europe. And that got me thinking. I did a whole bunch of posts about that trip, but I had to leave Mollie out, and my wife, who still doesn’t want to be on the blog.

But that means I have dozens of photos of our trip that I couldn’t post before. If you want to read the whole story of the trip… and it was awesome, we saw the Queen of England and the Royal Family, and saw two movie scenes being filmed…. One was from a James Bond movie… and had a lot of cool adventures… you should use the search bar or scroll down… or use the handy calendar thing in the sidebar.

So I am posting, in no particular order, photos of Mollie, taken on two cameras and three cell phones, over the course of two weeks. This does two things. One, I get to relive the trip. And two, you get to see what a beautiful, smart, strong, young woman my daughter is. That is her, trying on a hat in Paris.

a 2

Me and Mollie… Mollie and I… on the Eiffel Tower.

a 3

Mollie, my mom, and I, in front of Notre Dame.

a 4

Mollie, getting some culture.

a 5

The Old Globe, in London.

a 6

It is almost impossible to take a bad picture of that kid.

a 7

She actually is as sweet as she looks like she might be.

a 8

Neuschwanstein Castle.

a 9

London selfie. That must be from her phone.

a 10

And one random picture of me, when I realized the train from Paris to Germany was going over two hundred miles per hour. And just so you know, while I was going through the pictures of our trip, I came up with my next post series idea… I am going to post every selfie I ever took of me in my whole life… Oh yeah! So enjoy these while you can.

It just occurred to me…

Now that Mollie, our younger daughter, is 18, and my wife says she can appear on the blog, that means I can go back and show old pictures of her… right?

a 1

What brought this up is that on Facebook, I was asked if I wanted to share an old memory… and that memory is of our trip to Europe two summers ago.

a 1 2

Which should mean that I can go back and share pictures I couldn’t share before… probably. There is my mom in the background, and Mollie and I closer up. I had to cut my wife out, who was sitting to Mollie’s right, because she srill doesn’t want to be on the blog. We are on our way across the pond!

a 2

I may have already shared that one, but it’s me… so I will share it again. These are in no particular order, That is the hotel we stayed at in Munich.

a 3

My mom, Mollie, and I, at Neuschwanstein castle.

a 4

That is me petting a German horse near the castle. I know I shared this one… but… horsies!!!

a 5

Me and Mollie in Rothenburg.

a 7

Mollie, trying her very first sip of beer… in the same beer hall where Hitler gave his first speeches to the fledgling Nazi party in Munich.

a 8

She liked the water better.

a 9

Rothenburg is awesome. I have lots of these, and I can probably find more in the old files, so let me know if you like the idea of seeing more of our adventures in Europe.

Awwwwwwwwwwww…

There is my friend, Joey, holding my buddy, Olivia, holding one of the new twins.

b 2

I swiped that photo form their Facebook. But I can’t wait to get to play with the twins as they get older. And I am sure that Olivia and I will have some fun adventures to give mommy and daddy a break.

So… about that bad back thing…

a 2

I told you that my back is all messed up. I also told you that they gave me some kind of anxiety reducing medicine instead of a muscle relaxer. So here is my question. If you take an anxiety med that makes you fell nauseous, isn’t that sort of self-contradictory? I mean, what makes you feel more anxious than feeling like you might throw up all day long?

I am screwed. I know, that isn’t a picture of me feeling screwed, it is me getting hammered … but I don’t have a picture of me getting screwed. This isn’t that kind of a blog.

My back hurts…

a 1

So I did something to my back, and I am in a lot of pain. The doctor gave me anti-anxiety meds instead of regular muscle relaxers, which are supposed to to the same thing… but don’t. And, because of the opioide epidemic, they are reluctant to give out good pain meds. So I am on regular Tylenol… which is not helping. So, I may not post much for a day or two. Unless I get better meds… than… watch out.

Because… babies!!!

a 5

We went and visited our friends and the new twins! They were still at the hospital.

a 2

My daughter, Mollie, has my way with babies… and she now has pink and purple hair.

a 4

But is there any feeling in the world like holding a new baby?
