Billy Jolly

8 01 2008

Billy Jolly turned 71 years old yesterday. Billy has lived in Flemingsburg all his life and would not have it any other way. Blair and I took a trip to Flemingsburg yesterday to visit her grandma. I saw Billy sitting in his back yard smoking a cigarette and knew I couldn’t pass him up. He started walking towards me as I approached before I got to photograph him in his junk filled back yard.

Rick Pitino and his Louisville Cardinals returned to Rupp Area today to take on Billy Gillispie and the University of Kentucky Wildcats. Even though the UK cheerleaders performed at half time, the wildcats still managed to lose 89-75.

Pheasant or quail?

3 01 2008

There is just something about shooting things that gets me excited. Then to add blood, death and cameras to the list there is little that would keep me from getting out of bed at 6:30 in the morning. But im still not sure which one is the pheasant and which one is the quail.

Family

I told Josh that there was a new tattoo place by my apartment that we should check out. Through dinner everyone debated about what tattoos we would get and where. “I’d get one,” Josh said casually, so after a fun dinner and a quick go around at the Explorium, we headed off to Bleed Blue on Upper Street.

“We’re just looking,” we told them when we walked in the door. But after looking through books of designs and dismissing Joel’s bet to tattoo hamster tracks in hidden areas, Josh ended up more than just looking.

Cats fall to 7-8

29 12 2007

I’m starting to think that UK’s players just don’t like Billy G. I know the referee does not like me. He stood in front of me the entire game and even told me he didn’t like me. So I had to make my pictures walking to and from the game and not during.
