Pre holiday Shopping...

Nathaniel: "We shouldn't of came in this door."
Rex: "Are you kidding you know Hugo Boss is my store."
Henry: "Let's make it our last stop. You know I have no shame adding to my wardrobe."
Henry: "Be still my heart!"
Nathaniel: "Really, you are retired too. Wherever to have to go?"
Rex: "I like to look good when I take out the trash. Haaa. haaa."
Henry: "Amen brother. Amen!"
Rex: "So look when we go in JC Penny. I want to make sure I have everything on the list. I don't want Rita to to worry about any last minute gifts shopping. Wait, where are you guys going?"
Henry: "Off to the book store. I want to see if the have any dvd collections on clearance. I so want the James Bond Collection."
Rex: "Ok I will meet you at Borders. Give me 30 minutes."
Nathaniel: "Sounds like a plan. I want to get something for my beautiful wife while I am here."
Nathaniel: "See you in about 45 minutes."
Henry: "I thought you wanted something in the bookstore too."
Nathaniel: "You said you were going to the bookstore. I'm headed somewhere else. Anyway maybe they worked something out with Books A-Million. I'm off."
Henry: "What?!? You going to just bust like that? You've must really did something."
Nathaniel: "Yes I did. I said I DO. So that means when I have the notion to get her something, I get her something. Feel me? Haa, haaa."
Henry: "Far be it for me to stop you, HAha, haa. I hope your have something in mine."
Nathaniel: "You let me worry about that. Peace."
Nathaniel: Hmm, I see few things already."

2 hours later...

Rex: "Where store did he say he was going in?"
Henry: "All he said was he was going to get a little something for his wife. If he went to Macy's I'm sure he loss his mind in there. His wife loves Macy's"
Rex: "Here he comes now."
Henry: "Relax man. I told him to take his time."
Rex: ""I'm sure he did. I am so hungry. He is definitely paying for lunch."
Henry: "Did you find what you were looking for?"
Nathaniel" "Yes, quite a few things actually."
Henry: "Man, we have been waiting so long for you I'm over here starving."
Nathaniel: "It hasn't been that long."
Henry: "Huh, have you checked your watch? It has been more than a minute."
Rex: "Well, since you are treating us to lunch then, hey let's do this."
Nathaniel; "Good thing I knew what I was looking for because you dudes would be S-T-A-R-V-I-N-G.Ha, Haa, haa. So where are we eating."
Rex: "Longhorn."
Henry: "Yes, Longhorn. I could use a nice prime rib."
Nathaniel: "McDonald's it is."

Sidebar: I hope all is well with everyone. I have spent my morning catching up. I'm glad everyone is doing good. My nephew is doing good also. He was working a temp job but it turns out they call you when the need you so that ok,  BUT Micheal's had called him as well and hopefully he will be there with more hours. We have moved stuff around the apartment and making it work. I hope to be back to my regular schedule of blogging. Thanks everyone for  your encouragement and well wishes. It always gets better when you trust in God!



  1. Hello from Spain: I really like you guys. Great pictures at the mall. Christmas comes early. I adore your Rex. A very real story of men. Keep in touch

    1. Thanks. I figured this is how men act when they are together without a beer in their hands. Unable to focus, lol!

  2. It's good to see a story just about guys, Brini. As usual, I love your photos.

    I had a blog post with you in mind, but I'll just share it here. While in a check-out line in the grocery store last week on a day that happened to be our coldest thus far this year, I wore the beautiful scarf you made. The woman behind me asked, "Where did you get that scarf?" I told her a friend made it. She asked for your contact information. I told her you lived out of state. She looked very disappointed. Then she asked if she could take a photo of it. I agreed, "As long as you don't include my face." She said she plans to have a woman she knows make one for her. I thought you might enjoy knowing that people are still admiring your beautiful work. This is not the first time I have received a compliment on it, but the first time that someone (other than my mother) wanted to know who made it.

    For the benefit of your readers who would like to see the scarf, it can be seen here along with other items you sent for my plastic people.
    Thanks again!

    Have a blessed week.


    1. My guys looks so sad just sitting on the shelf cramped together so it was high time they "get out". I'm so glad to read about all the compliments and as well as knowing you are enjoying your scarf. I trying to get everything in order for this years giveaway which I hope to kick off soon.

    1. Yeah, that something my father would say to us when asked where would we like to go out and eat. So I get to do it my son and nephew now.

  4. Hahaha, the guys' conversations while shopping are funny! Great pictures in the shopping mall! Good to hear the news about your nephew too :-). xx

    1. When you think about it, that how most conversation go with men. Everyone is doing something else but when they are drinking beer that seem to stay in their hub and focus, lol.

  5. The old guy still has it! Too funny Nathaniel was looking at Frederick's of Hollywood and thinking about what to get his wife. Glad to see you back again, Brini, and sounds like things are working out for your nephew.

    1. Oh yes, Nathaniel has lots of love for his wife. I'm glad to be back too. I miss my playtime. My nephew is coming along fine. Micheal's called him back to do a background check so I would say he's got the job. It might be seasonal and the store really does need a stock help period. He said the store was bigger than the one closes to us so I figured it will work either way.

  6. Wonderful to see you posting again. I can empathize with your space constraints. I'm staying in my brother's basement. It can be hard to find a time to shoot upstairs when the light is good and no-one else is around. Enjoyed your mall photos!

    1. Yes, yes. yes. I know I can still get outside shots early in the morning like I normally do but I can still work my screen shots. Especially with shopping season, they can serve as quick backdrops with minimum set up.

  7. I like to see guys shopping - nice and funny change.

    Glad to see a post from you. Good to read that your nephew has options. Hope you have a great week, too!

    1. My son and nephew were heading to mall so there was this whole useless conversation going on before they left. Such inspiration, lol!

  8. This is so great, Brini! Congrats for this amazing and interesting scenes!

    1. Thanks. I figure the guys needs some love.

  9. Que biennn los chicos de comprass seguro que lo han pasado genial. Besosss

    1. stos chicos son demasiado divertido cuando el pasar el rato.

  10. I always love your photos that go with your stories. So cute!!
    I'm glad everything is working itself out. Keep smiling! And be happy you all have each other. :)

    1. Thank you and yes things are coming along quite nicely. I think it all in the perspective and having the right attitude.

  11. I loved this story Brini, I just discovered your blog two days ago, hope everything will be fine and to read more by you soon!
