Bob’s B-17

Posted in portrait by kirbybjohnson on May 14, 2010

Shortly after gently touching down at Janes Field in Blaine MN, my friend Bob Zenz poses for a portrait in front of the B-17 that had just carried Bob as a VIP passenger. This vintage WWII aircraft did not engage in any combat during the war; it rolled off the assembly line shortly before the war’s end.

Happy Mother’s Day Mom

It’s been 28 years since I attended a Minnesota Twins game with my mom.  It’s been even longer since I’ve thought about that tattered, red coat of hers; it was her favorite. I have lived without my mother more years than I was blessed to have with her. Nevertheless, I’m able to smile and  imagine her presence whenever I pick up my black cat Otis.

Happy Mother’s Day Mom.
