Ah yes, back in the hood. At the risk of offending our NH brethren, it feels great being back in the hood. By now, you know the drill. This year’s annual block party was amazing, despite 95 degree temps, led by the Honorable Reza, and his trusty sidekicks DJ and Matt. For those uninitiated, Reza… Read More Block Party – Aug 2019
Even after 20 years living in the south, no one has ever mistaken me for being a good ole southern boy. I’ll say three words, and inevitably the first thing I hear is, “Boy, yarnt from around here, arya.” To which I usually and quite smartly say, “Well, gosh, no I am not!” “Bless your heart.”… Read More Southern Living – Sept 2018
You’re thinking – the Slowsky’s attended another block party? Yup. This year was no exception – a great time in the hood at the Reza Roundup. As I have spoken endlessly before, we live in a great neighborhood, where people actually talk, play, socialize – and enjoy! And really, when the school bus empties every… Read More Block Party – Aug 2018
I have mixed feelings about saying good-bye to 2017, but thanks to the Coleman’s here in the Prince Howard hood, we brought in 2018 in fashion! Thanks to RapMasterBlaster and his sidekick Leonard for some FABULOUS dance tunes. Happy New Year!!!
Last night as I was about to go to bed, I looked outside at the early part of a snow storm and saw such interesting colors and beautiful new snow. So I schlepped my camera in a plastic shopping bag and walked the neighborhood. Anyone who has ever walked during a snowstorm knows how much… Read More Snowfall – Dec 2017
Trying to maintain a rich tradition of Halloween themes which have poor taste, social irresponsibility, and no redeeming value (you know, kind of like this election), I believe this year we met our goal. Every year we deliberate over a number of ideas for Halloween. Invariably we choose the worst of the worst; this year… Read More Halloween – Oct 2016
Once again the Prince Howard hood celebrates its sense of family, community and camaraderie with the Rock the Block Party. Thanks to Brandt and Renee for hosting this year’s neighborhood party! Everyone brought something, whether it was food, beverages or just conversation. The kids had a bouncy machine to jump around in. For those who… Read More Rock the Block – Sept 2016
Brexit… schmexit. We just plain old celebrated the 4th of July. Whether you were one of the 60,000 people in Atlanta who ran the Peachtree, cooked on the barbecue, stayed close to the pool, marveled at the brilliance of the Declaration of Independence, or sat with a book to while away the oppressive heat of… Read More 4th of July – 2016
We are celebrating our 18-year-old family member, Lucy. Sadly we needed to put her down today as she has been progressively struggling. What a great dog. And don’t feel bad for her or us! She lived a pretty damn good life (at least after leaving the pound!). If there really is reincarnation I want to… Read More Celebrating Lucy – 2016
As you may have expected, we have taken certain liberties with the celebration of Halloween. This year the theme was “FarmersOnly.com”, and we had farmers (Vern, Earl and Cyrus D. Hay to pose with), animals (Rosie and Lucy helped to fill out the livestock pen) and an active interest from zombies and other characters to… Read More Halloween – Oct. 2015
Getting psyched for this year’s upcoming Halloween! I gathered a few pictures from past Halloween activities… Can’t wait to see who and what shows up this year!
We have much to be thankful for, and celebrating the birth of our great nation for us is steeped in neighborhood. We celebrated with our immediate neighbors, many who participate and offer something of themselves to make the entire day a delight, whether it be food, music, desserts, sparklers, fireworks, or treats for the kids.… Read More Independence Day – July 2015
The trauma center saw a lot of traffic the other night – a few recap photos… “>
