MRB enjoy the surf in the shallow waters near the beach (Copyright © 2016 by Wil C. Fry. Some rights reserved.) We enjoyed Galveston so much last year that we decided to do it again. In fact, we decided that last year, on the way home from Galveston. Early this year, when we received[…]

Today is my wife’s birthday; she got two DVDs and a CD and turned 31 — she still can’t believe it. She met me in her early 20s; she’s now been married to me for 1/5 (20%) of her life. The downside of any of her birthdays that ends in “1” is that the next[…]
Yesterday, Rebecca received her final RSV shot. She took it like a big girl, only crying for a minute or so. By the time we got home, she was laughing and playful. During the visit to the clinic in Temple, we also saw her new weight: 13 lbs., 0 oz. (5.88 kg). She’s trying very[…]
Rebecca’s initial due date was estimated to be Nov. 26, though it was later upgraded to Nov. 23. Basically, we expected her to be born this week , instead of being six weeks old already. I know it doesn’t accomplish anything to play the “What If?” game, but purely as an intellectual exercise, here we[…]
I dropped my wife off at the Killeen airport Thursday morning. Yes, Killeen has an airport. It’s the first time either of us has lived less than 15 minutes from an airport. I watched her go through the (very short) security line into the terminal, which has only six gates, and then she was gone.[…]
Another week has come and gone. Since we’ve been back in Texas, my wife and I returned pretty much to our regular schedules. I do the housework while she does the work that brings in the money. Since some of her co-workers have complicated days-off schedules for the holidays, my wife gets all the odd[…]
Monday evening, my wife made a wonderful soup for supper. When I asked her what kind it was, she said, “It’s soup.” When I forced her to make a name for it, she said, “Marline soup.” It had chicken bullion, potato, batata (sweet potato), celery, carrots, pork, green plantains, and maybe something else. As I[…]

Last evening, my wife and I took a couple of snapshots of each other. If I’m not mistaken, these are our first pictures of each other since moving to Killeen.
My wife’s first day at her new job was hectic, as expected. She had to get fingerprinted, pick up a temporary gate pass, obtain ID badges, etc., which involved walking/driving to several locations on base. She was a little overwhelmed, but not too much. She’s not the kind of person who gets overwhelmed easily, and[…]
Don’t feel bad if you didn’t read the entirety of my last post. It was so long that I barely got through it myself. The short version is: We got to Killeen, we unloaded the truck and returned it, returned to Seminole for my car, unpacked for days, bought some new stuff, ate food, slept,[…]
My wife was notified this morning that she got the job she was looking for. Needless to say, we’re pretty excited and nervous and kind of shocked, all at the same time. What’s Next? We’re not moving this minute, of course. She will work about two more weeks at her current job. As it stands[…]
Have you ever been confused by those stats given out during televised sporting events? The ones that say something like: “This is the first time on a Monday night during the second half of a season that (name of player) threw three straight strikes with a runner on first and third, when the temperature was[…]
This is my wife, taken this afternoon, less than a day after I cut her hair. Yes, I said “I cut her hair.” Sounded crazy to me too, but I did it. If I’m not mistaken, it’s the only time in my life that I cut someone else’s hair. Side Note: Check out my review[…]
Fourth entry in my bokeh project. This is getting harder than I thought, coming up with a new subject each day. Of course, it’s limited to my home in this weather (it was 55 degrees — in MAY! today). But I’ll be getting out more in the next few days.
Yes, I guess it HAS been that long. Nearly a month since my last post. For a veritable diary of what I’ve been doing lately, check my web page Recent Photoshoots [old link removed]. While the football season continues, the high school softball season is almost wrapped up. In fact, the softball season would have[…]
Marline and I were arranging things (I mentioned in my last post about our homemaking purchases), and noticed a few empty wall spaces. Instead of purchasing generic art like so many people do, we ordered three prints of our own photos to hang on the wall. We ordered: 12×18 print of both of us 8×10[…]
