"Gangster Cam" Finds New Purpose...(Summer Visitation 2009)

Photo By John Hoff 

Recently, a situation came up in the Hawthorne Neighborhood where a resident felt safer if she had a camera. Housing Director Jeff Skrenes called me and said, hey, aren't you still using your old digital camera as a spare now that you have that sweet new camera? Jeff wanted to know if I'd be willing to loan my spare "gangster cam" to the resident.

(I call it the "gangster cam" because of some images left on the memory card, many of which I published on this blog)

I told Jeff hey, sure, I can give up that cheap little camera for the least on a "long term temporary" basis. The other day my son, Alex, ran the camera to Jeff at the HNC office.

Here, Jeff poses with the camera like it's a very small trophy fish.

Are you sure that Alex is your son? He sure looks like Jeff in that pic!

I'm sure that Alex is my son, but as for Jeff...I'm not sure that I'm NOT related to him and, well, I don't think Jeff can be sure of that either. It's a long story, but thankfully not as torrid a tale as my relationship with Ben Myers...

Ha! The irony here is that I actually DO have a twin and don't need to resort to parody when I describe how much uglier he is than me.
