Sitting around the Campfire

Kevin and I enjoy sitting around a campfire. We love the ambience, the conviviality, the rapport with friends and family when we see the little fire burning, and burning, and getting bigger, and bigger. AND BIGGER!!!!

From the Storm Archives

A picture of our famous, but distant relatives: Fred, Gary and Benny Storm. If my memory serves me correctly, it was taken during a game of Old Maid and Fred was scratching his head wondering why he was always left with the odd card (he was totally unaware how odd he and Gary and Benny looked). Although back in the early '70s it wasn't uncommon to see men wearing suits, sitting up straight, and having a lot of hair on their faces. I remember taking this picture, and I'm sure we were listening to Led Zeppelin's Stairway to Heaven on the gramaphone. After I showed them this picture, they insisted that I airbrush out the bottle of tequilla that was sitting in the middle of the table. They eventually moved to Los Angeles and became noted disco dancers.

Canoeing Do's and Dont's

Most people portage over log jams. Our intrepid canoeists, Jim and Ger, decided it was easier to stay in the canoe and paddle across the log jam. Even expert canoeists (especially these two) have bad days brain-wise.
