Friends Reconnect   22 comments


 

 

Since all of us could not be at the first memorial ride for our friend Jason A. Baines in Lexington, KY Sunday 11/11/12, we did the next best thing we could muster. Sarah and Winnie came to Macon to visit both us and Winnie’s family who happens to live in Macon.

I looked through over 10 years of photos to find the treasures of photographic history of our lives together. Now I must learn how to scan photos, which I am told is pretty simple.

The photos in this blog are from the Macon visit with Winnie and Sarah.

 

Sarah has badass bike skills and many medals in her pocket.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Now for the pictures that I should have a tripod for instead of all these photos. But it was still fun to try to remember which person needed to take which photo.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The bright spot in the recent gloom was the all too short but invigorating visit with long time friends.

 

Enjoy your day!

 

 

’42’ : A movie in the making with Harrison Ford and Chadwick Boseman   5 comments


How exciting being privy to a movie shot set in the 1940’s in downtown Macon, GA!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The movie ’42’ starring Harrison Ford portraying Branch Rickey. The man who helped Jackie Robinson break not only sports history but help tear down racial barriers in America. The actor portraying Jackie Robinson is Chadwick Boseman.

 

 

I return the next afternoon to see if I could catch some of the filming. I get a thumbs up from one of the actors.

 

 

 

 

I am lucky enough to capture several photos of Chadwick Boseman portraying Jackie Robinson!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

So I could no resist having a friend snap a pic of me with one of my favorite cars from the movie scenes filmed in downtown Macon, GA.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The movie ’42’ is set to open at the box offices next April.

 

Enjoy your day!

Mag Tard in April 2011   Leave a comment


 In April 2011, we went to see our friends band. Mag Tard is the band’s name.  

I am sure if you live in and around Macon, you have heard these guys perform.
