Yikes, you mean I still have a blog?

March 8, 2013

OK.  Really, I’ve known this thing was still out there and that I’ve been pretending it doesn’t matter.

My son, who worked for Many Hats Creative briefly a few years ago told me (as many people do who provide unsolicited advice on how to market using a blog) that never posting on your blog is worse than not having one because people think, “Well, that guy doesn’t care!”

It’s not true–I do care . . . both about my business (a lot) and this blog (a little), so I’ll try to catch up . . .

So this is supposed to be an eclectic collection of thoughts about all of the “hats” of Many Hats Creative (the business) and me (Magsy’s grandpa and the wearer of “Many Hats”).

Since my last post, Magsy has added 4 or so years . . . she’s now a nine-year-old, third-grader, in New York (Street) School–Langdon Hughes’ alma mater, and the highest rated elementary school in Lawrence, Kansas.  She’s an amazing person (my favorite person ever), with a totally nutty personality.  Instead of trying to describe the indescribable, I’ll just relate my favorite memories of her over her lifetime . . .

When Mags was just a tiny baby, she had a really hard time relaxing and going to sleep (she lived at our house with her mother for her first year, then with her parents in Stouffer Place married student housing on the KU Campus) until her parents figured out that she’d go right to sleep when they play music for her . . . specifically Miles Davis.  How many tiny tots do you know that listen to Miles Davis?

Over the past couple of years she’s taught herself to roller skate by constantly wearing skates in the house when she’s at her grandparents (our) house.  We recently walked down to the local skate park and she impressed all the skater boys with her abilities (which she didn’t even know she had).  The neighbor boy rolled up to me and asked, “Are you . . . ?”  (Uh-huh.) “Is that?”  (Yes.) “Oh. Wow.” (Skates away.)Created by Readiris, Copyright IRIS 2009
