I know to most people it’s lame…
But I have to admit I’m excited for Burbank on Parade. This year Stench and I have been invited to be in the parade… I have been in a bunch of parades over the years, but there is something about being in your hometowns parade, going down the streets you grew up on that is special. This will not be my first time in it, but it will be the first time for Bing and Lucy was a baby last time she was in it… It means a lot to me that they are old enough to remember it… I know it’s lame, but I love Burbank and having one of the kids childhood memories be having been in the cities parade is cool to me. Thank you so much to Ross Benson, who is launching a new website Burbank & Beyond tomorrow, for inviting our little podcast to participate.
While I’m thanking people, I would also like to say a special Thank You to Jason McCormack (Click here to check out and like his art page) for the amazing painting. It is always interesting to see how others see you, and Jason did an incredible job.
While I’m sharing artwork, here is how another of my favorite artists see’s me. This is part of a drawing Bing made for me for Christmas.
For 6 he’s not bad either!
Work continues to be a struggle, both financially and mentally… But I do have a great deal of hope for change this year. It has been tougher and tougher not only getting by, but trying to live a somewhat normal life… Here’s to something better in 2013!
Something I’ve been enjoying is taking photos and posting them on instagram , click the link to check out my gallery.
Both kids are doing great! Lucy is an amazing reader (She reads at the 6th grade level, she’s in the 3rd grade) and she loves it… The Easter bunny left her a book in her basket and she was excited (When I was her age I would have been bummed!) and Bing is reading way better than I ever did in kindergarten. They both really enjoy learning, I hope they never lose that.
The podcast continues on… We’re almost to 1500 shows, which is crazy! Who thought it would go on this long!?!?
As always, Thanks for all the support!
Rock on, Jack
