When Paths Converge

On our way to the beach today with my new camera lenses (you’ll want to visit Quilly Unshuttered), Amoeba and I encountered Thom and his nieces.   They were on their way to a family meal — which Amoeba and I were invited to join.  We had a very nice time and some yummy food.  I took lots of photos of people who I didn’t ask about the public sharing of their pics, so you likely won’t see them here, but I did make the pics available to Thom to share with his friends and family.

I know you’re all dying top see some pics though, so ….

Thom.  With his mouth open.
(It is very difficult to get a pic of Thom with his mouth closed.)

And ….

See what I mean!?
And I think this one negates my vampire theory, as well.

The park was full of sun lovers. Two of them attempted to fly a kite for the first time. I captured it on film.

It was a wonderful afternoon!


  1. Oh my Thom. I think I will recognize you anywhere now ;0) Quilly, I was looking at this weeks coming up 3WT and you have set a challenge for me. Not with using the words but when to stop! ARGHHhh! This isn’t a cop out is it. I know you have your new cam and all but come on! j/k I look forward to the challenge.

    1. OJM — use them all — knock yourself out! But remember, if your post gets too long, folks won’t read it!

  2. Jientje — I have several more as well, but I am not starting a Thom fan club, so it may be awhile before you see them.

  3. Awww, come on Quilly! Start the Thom fan club. Geez, the guy looks happy, and it really doesn’t seem like he’s a vampire. If those aren’t great qualifications for a fan club, I don’t know what is. 🙂

    1. Doug — that was my original theory, but Thom kept going in and out of the water and I never saw him apply any SPF Anything.

    1. I was a bit worried about what you were going to do to my new lens, but it handled the chore very well, I think!

  4. Wow, what a nice thing, for Thom to invite you to join his family get together. Sounds like a most wonderful time for all. I’m glad you took & shared these photos of Thom, now I finally have a good idea what he looks like. Handsome… and no vampire teeth apparently, lol. I wonder if they grow after dark though, and shrink in sunlight… oh wait. Sunlight!! Vampires don’t do sunlight! Further proof.

    Have a wonderful day!

    1. Alice — the fact that Thom was standing in full mid-day sunshine is what made me retract my vampire theory. It was nice of everybody to include Amoeba and me in their party. Thom has a lovely, warm and welcoming ohana.

  5. Glad you had a good time taking pictures. It was nice that you and OC met up with Thom and his family and had a Grand Afternoon. So this is what our “Young Thom” looks like, I can see why the “Little Old Ladies” like to ride his bus.

    1. Dr. John — not a new camera. ?Just new lenses for the old camera! But yes, the new lenses are a great success!

  6. David — apparently you missed the story about my falling and destroying the old lense. I now have an 18-55mm and a 55-200mm.

  7. LOL! Oooops on the kite! The one I bought at the beach last year is an EASY flier — it needs very little wind and practically goes up by itself! I LOVE that!

    Thom certainly is a jovial fellow! I LIKE that in a guy! NOT that I’m joining any fan clubs or anything….

    Melli’s last blog post..I’m Hooooooome!

    1. Melli — the kite went up very easily. Then the lady let out two miles of string and it got all loose and sloppy.

    1. Thom — I am still waiting to hear about the private pics I sent! Did you get the link? And I believe you can check with your friends who agreed to 39 — as your IQ if you thought we were going to buy that as your age!
