Bought a 2020 Lugnuts Season Ticket

I’d been thinking about a Lansing season ticket for this year since sometime in December. So I bought one.

Big Lug

Dylan Meyer–the Lugnuts’ season ticket guy–gave me a call yesterday to ask whether I’d be interested to (re)purchase the 20-game package I bought a couple years back. I said no–but I’d be interested in buying a specific seat for the entire season. He checked, it was available, I bought it. So I’ll be sitting there all summer.

Section N, Row 4, Seat 8 was my seat at Oldsmobile Park during the Luggies’ 1996 inaugural season, and again in 2005 during their tenth. (In between I was a Battle Creek fan.) Somehow watching the team’s 25th season from that seat seems appropriate.

I kept sort of a blog during the 1996 season. Think I’ll do it again this year. This is the start.

Did Someone Mention a Nuthatch?

This was fun. Thanks for following along.


I spent 12/31/2007 playing with my new camera. I took it to the post office, where I photographed falling snow. We watched Joan as she cooked & cleaned up. I set up the tripod and snapped pix of finches. (I also photographed that setup, using my pocket cam.) I photographed cardinals, too. And a nuthatch.


These days the park’s rather more developed than it was in 2006. But it’s still a place with interesting ruins.


This photograph’s the December image for the calendar I made for friends and family members this year, so they’ll find it familiar. Except my printer added a whole bunch of orange to the mix.


Ten years ago today my Nikon D300 arrived. I shot the traditional photos of Joan and Taffy–Oreo, too. I got some (lousy) pictures of the Christmas tree ornaments. Then I wandered around the house taking images of things on shelves and walls.


Joan’s gone to work. Some cat’s come to visit.

Sarah Reading Her Cards

Not sure why, but odd lighting is pretty common in my 12/26 set, regardless of where we hold Sarah’s party. I’m frankly amazed that this photo worked.

Christmas Dinner

In 2010 we spent Christmas with my brother and sister at their place in Kalamazoo. Debbie prepared this meal.


This photo was taken at the Bennett family Christmas party, held at Sarah’s place in 2014.
