Revised 14 April 2013

I have major plans for this page -- photo albums of the guilty and innocent alike. Nobody will escape.

To start, I have collected a few family events from past postings.

14 April

Bob Hosler (10 April, 1912 - 9 October 1995)

Brilliant, multi-talented, and problematic, Bob was difficult to live with or even understand, but always interesting. He made his living as a Hollywood film cameraman, but was also a builder/contractor, nurseryman, and recognized bamboo expert.

Bob spent the last 25 years of his life in paranoid seclusion, writing tens of thousands of pages of journals, screenplays, and letters; I have much of this material and hope to put extracts on this site.

Herewith a modest selection of images, to commemorate his 101st birthday.

12 April
Little girls

Chance and Gloria are eight, both born in the summer of 2004, only a month apart in age but separated by a generation. Chance is Aidan's youngest; Gloria is Alex's daughter, Chris's granddaughter. They have hung out together at family gatherings since they were three. 44 images taken over that time (1200x800 available)
