welcome to florida!

Mom's house. So bright. So sunny. So Floridian.



Mom. And her enormous grill. In her new gazebo.


The family. Mom, her dad, and her sister Linda. Do we look normal? Look closer.


We'll start slow. My rich aunt Linda. What you can't see is the pink bluetooth device hanging from her other ear. Whatever.


Now my grandfather. Seems like a sweet guy. But wait... what's that?


Why, it's a .38 revolver! Because you just never know when a backyard BBQ with family will erupt into bitter gang warfare... Want another look?


That's hot.


Moving right along... we went to the mall today. This is my brother. He bought me a new Columbia Sportswear jacket today because he's a rich computer programmer. He's the smartest person I know. Besides me...


Here's my new jacket.



Oh, and here's Buddy. He's seen better days.


And finally, a nice palm tree in the sunset. Sometimes Florida is cool...

Brilliant shots! "Because you just never know when a backyard BBQ with family will erupt into bitter gang warfare... " is a) the funniest thing I've read in a long time and b) probably the NRA's new slogan. Score!!

great photos RPP - so good to get a visual of the whole scene....
and the gun, the gun... wow... is it loaded? does he carry spare bullets? was he in the police force? army? blackwater?
my englishness just boggles at how normalized a deadly weapon is in the USA, to a BBQ... awesome!

and augh, air conditioning.... i feel for you.....
