Another Tugboat Picture

by @ Monday, August 14th, 2006. Filed under Dad (aka, Bob Cook)

I really like this picture of the tugboat working on the Monongahela River. It is perfect for showing my class when I talk about transportation modes. It is a heavily cropped image because the tug was along the opposite river bank. The weather finally cooperated. Now I need to get pictures of a railroad train and a […]

Brown’s Camp

by @ Wednesday, August 9th, 2006. Filed under Sports

And here I have a few more photos from the 2006 Cleveland Brown’s Training Camp. My last post contained all my photos of Joey J., so this post contains some other photos I thought were worth posting. Again, the full album of photos can be found here.                 […]

Charlie Frye Gets Whacked ….

by @ Wednesday, August 9th, 2006. Filed under Dad (aka, Bob Cook)

I got a kick out of one drill at Browns’ Camp. The quarterbacks would go back to throw to a receiver, and a coach would wack them with a pad to try to break their concentration. This is a picture of Charlie Frye about to get whacked. And this is a picture of Charlie actually getting whacked. […]

Dapper Dan …

by @ Thursday, August 17th, 2006. Filed under Dad (aka, Bob Cook)

Here is a picture of Dapper Dan … er … Dapper George circa 1977. While I am not certain where he was going, I am certain that he was out to impress the ladies. And impress them he did! I am amazed he was still available when Chris finally reeled him in. What young lass […]

Frank "The Enforcer" Nitti

by @ Saturday, August 19th, 2006. Filed under Dad (aka, Bob Cook)

This is a picture of Jim that George and I always called his “Frank Nitti” picture. For whatever reason, George and I believed that gangster, Francesco Raffaele Nitto (better known as Frank Nitti), was always dressed to the nines. Perhaps we got that from the TV series, The Untouchables, wherein Elliot Ness and Frank Nitti […]

Freezing Ohio Winters

by @ Sunday, August 6th, 2006. Filed under Dad (aka, Bob Cook)

This is what happens to a dog if you leave it out in a frigid Ohio winter for too long. Even its eyebrows freeze. We put poor Gypsy out and forgot about her. He was out for an hour or so. She was not worse for the wear, but after that we started setting a […]

Frye To Throw ….

by @ Tuesday, August 8th, 2006. Filed under Dad (aka, Bob Cook)

On Monday, Katie and I went to Browns’ Camp. It was hot and humid – exactly what a coach wants. But it was not what Katie and I wanted. Still, we gutted it out and had a fun time. This picture is of an offensive drill. Charlie Frye is going back to throw under the […]

How Could I Not Marry Her?

Joey J.

by @ Wednesday, August 9th, 2006. Filed under Sports

On Monday, dad and I made a trek up to Berea to watch a practice from the Cleveland Brown’s Training Camp. We went last year (see my Blog and Album from last year). Dad and I dutifully made our way out of bed at 3:30 in the morning, and were on the road less than an hour […]

Katie’s Favorite Horse

by @ Saturday, August 5th, 2006. Filed under Dad (aka, Bob Cook)

As far back as I can remember, Katie has always had a special connection with horses. This Merry-Go-Round horse was one of her earliest favorites. On this particular carousel she only wanted to ride this one. So she would wait as many turns as necessary to be able to jump on this particular horse. This is […]

My One True Love

by @ Friday, August 4th, 2006. Filed under Dad (aka, Bob Cook)

I can recognize her from any distance. Of course it helps if she is absolutely alone on a deserted beach. But even if she weren’t I can pick her out. I could even do it if I were deaf, dumb, and blind. I can sense her life force. We are one. Emily never liked this picture […]

My Signature Maple Salmon …….

by @ Tuesday, August 29th, 2006. Filed under Dad (aka, Bob Cook)

Tonight I tried a new Sockeye Salmon recipe, and came up with Maple Baked Salmon. The glaze called for maple syrup. I was going to use some syrup we had on hand, but Emily said if I was going to be a great chef I needed to get some real, 100% pure maple syrup. So I stopped at […]

My Signature Salmon ….

by @ Monday, August 28th, 2006. Filed under Dad (aka, Bob Cook)

Tonight I made Emily my signature oven-baked, Sockeye Salmon with Honey-Almond glaze. It included yams and a garden salad with grape tomatoes fresh from our garden. The trained eye will note that the man’s plate has more fish, and the woman’s plate has a yellow daisy garnish. Being a man, I am of the opinion […]

My Tugboat Picture

by @ Thursday, August 3rd, 2006. Filed under Dad (aka, Bob Cook)

This morning was beastly hot, and near 100% humidity as I walked my hounds along the Mon River. I had been hoping to get a good shot of a Tugboat pushing barges for my lecture on physical distribution. I had tried unsuccessfully earlier this summer, but today I got what I wanted. The picture is […]

Rabbit Stalking

by @ Sunday, August 13th, 2006. Filed under Dad (aka, Bob Cook)

Poor Rocky …. On our River Walks, there are tons of rabbits. At first, Rocky would chase them for all he was worth. The rabbits would simply jump to the tall weeds along the side of the gravel road, and Rocky would go right in after them. It didn’t take very long for Rocky to […]

Stroh’s Beer, or How I Bought My Wife …..

by @ Saturday, August 19th, 2006. Filed under Dad (aka, Bob Cook)

Before I married Emily, I worked summers for a Stroh’s Distributor in Canton. She was home with her parents in Columbus. Every weekend I would drive from Canton to Columbus to spend the weekend with her. And, of course, I would take her father a free case of Stroh’s beer. By the next weekend’s visit, that case […]

The Ceiling Fans

by @ Friday, August 4th, 2006. Filed under Dad (aka, Bob Cook)

Emily had been after Katie and me to replace the ceiling fan in the kitchen. The old one would no longer run, although the light still worked. Yesterday, Katie and I decided to do the project. Emily has a perm at the beauty parlor, so she let us go to Lowes and pick out a […]

The Eariliest Known Picture of Kevin

by @ Wednesday, August 16th, 2006. Filed under Dad (aka, Bob Cook)

This is the earliest picture I have of my son, Kevin. It was taken at Emily’s baby shower in 1978. Source: Bob Cook

The Forecart ….

by @ Tuesday, August 8th, 2006. Filed under Dad (aka, Bob Cook)

On the way home from Browns’ Camp, Katie had me drive deep into Amish country to “look” at a Forecart to be pulled by both of her horses in a team of two. Of course “look” turned into “purchase”. Her first cart can be pulled by one horse at a time. This one can be […]

The Unsuspecting Photographer ….

by @ Saturday, August 26th, 2006. Filed under Dad (aka, Bob Cook)

This poor, unsuspecting photographer is about to meet a T-Rex. The photograph has been adjusted to look more “primordial” using PhotoShop. I like the effect. Source: Bob Cook

Too Hot For Human Habitation …..

by @ Friday, August 25th, 2006. Filed under Dad (aka, Bob Cook)

This is a picture of a Williamsburg, VA, guide in period costume. I kind of liked the fellow because we had the chance to chat with him for a while before the tour started, and therefore got to know him a little bit. During the conversation we learned that he had lived in West Virginia. […]

West Virginia University Crew

by @ Wednesday, August 23rd, 2006. Filed under Dad (aka, Bob Cook)

Occasionally as the dogs and I walk along the Monongahela River we get to see the West Virginia University Crew working out on the river. Tonight we saw three women’s singles and their coaches. The coaches are always in the motor boat, and the girls have to row like mad. In this picture, they are at […]

Williamsburg: Day 1

by @ Wednesday, August 9th, 2006. Filed under Vacations

Way back the beginning of May, mom, dad, and I all took a vacation to Colonial Williamsburg. It was a place mom has always wanted to go, and one of the two places dad had long ago promised to take her (the other place is the Biltmore Estate). I’d suggested dad plan a surprise trip […]

Williamsburg: Day 2

by @ Wednesday, August 9th, 2006. Filed under Vacations

We all woke up rather early, excited to be out and about. We had originally planned to hit the nearby IHOP for breakfast, but the hotel actually put out a rather nice breakfast spread. We stuck with the hotel breakfast, and filled up on such treats as scrambled eggs, bacon, biscuits and gravy, bagels, milk, […]

Williamsburg: Day 3

by @ Wednesday, August 9th, 2006. Filed under Vacations

Day 3 started with a drive along the Colonial Parkway, and arriving at the Jamestown Settlement. When we arrived there, there were dozens of big tour buses parked in the lot, and tons of school groups milling around. Thankfully we managed to avoid the groups for the most part, so it wasn’t too crowded for […]

Williamsburg: Day 4

by @ Wednesday, August 9th, 2006. Filed under Vacations

On Day 4 (Friday) we went to Busch Gardens. It certainly was a pretty place. Mom enjoyed going to all the shows, and I drug dad on all the roller coasters. It wasn’t too crowded given that it was early May. The first two coasters (which we went on right when the park opened) we […]

Williamsburg: Day 5

by @ Wednesday, August 9th, 2006. Filed under Vacations

Our last day in Williamsburg was the most quiet. We headed over to Yorktown, but didn’t have all that much time there to explore since we had to be back in Williamsburg early afternoon for a program there. So we didn’t get to stay for any tours of the battlefields. We took a quick tour […]
