Weekend wrap-up, games, a boat, soccer, and menswear …

This was a good weekend. It started on Friday with a healthy games night with friends Monte and Anne.

We played a card game called Bohnanza, and if I could become a perfect ambassador for the game, I would. It’s a tough one to teach others how to play, but it’s a good game that teaches negotiation tactics, manipulation, mind tricks and haggling.

On Saturday, I played soccer in the afternoon with a league that needed an extra sub. It was full-field, co-ed, two 25-minute halves. The sides ended up being 10 on 8, because you have to have four girls on the field at a time, and our team only had three girls and the other had two.

We beat them 4-1.

I love that soccer is back in my life and love how good I feel after a game. I don’t have full game legs back, but I’m not in shabby shape either.

On Saturday night, we were asked to photograph a private charter boat party on Lake Michigan with a group of buyers, retailers and industry menswear folks in town for a trade show. We were able to enjoy ourselves with the private group and see some spectacular sights.

Then on Sunday, we worked out in the morning and in the afternoon, photographed that trade show that I referred to above.  It was Tina’s mission to get some Sartorial-type portraits of some of the better dressed people. So here’s a sampling below.















Police: Driver Who Asked Jesus To Take The Wheel Hit Motorcyclist

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (CBS Cleveland) – Usually when someone says “Jesus take the wheel” it’s meant to help them through a rough patch in life.

But police say an Indiana woman took the phrase literally on July 11th, when she took her hands off the steering wheel as she was driving.

The Fort Wayne Journal-Gazette reports 25-year-old Prionda Hill told authorities she let go of the wheel because “God told her he would take it from here.”

Unfortunately for Anthony Olivery, her car veered off the road and slammed into his motorcycle, throwing him to the ground. Then the car ran over him.

“When I looked at that bumper and looked at that tire, I told myself, today is the day you die,” he told the paper.
