If you don't like the video, hit the Pause button

I was telling Augie that he needed to stop what he was doing and come with me. He didn't want to. He said, "I'm pausing you. I'm pausing your show." I totally get it. I may try that next time someone at work is going on about whatever I don't want to hear about. Meanwhile...

Mister May of Maine is handyman Mike Goodwin. In case you haven't been following these monthly pinups, they're from a calendar created by the Greater York (Maine) Region Chamber of Commerce to support local causes. I snagged this prize in a giveaway from Eva at Wrestling with Retirement and I've been sharing nicely, as my mom taught me. Mr. Goodwin looks a bit nervous, so good for him, taking a risk for charity. (Click on the photo for larger version.)

...and catcher-ballerina-princess

You've heard of producer-directors, singer-songwriters, player-coaches. Our famiily is similarly hyphenated.

When Augie is wearing a cowboy hat he labels himself Cowboy Augie, and then he adds whatever activity he's doing. So we have Cowboy-Drummer Augie followed by Cowboy-Batter Augie, etc.

Last week he came in modeling his new roller skates and helmet, along with Spiderman pads and his well loved Thomas the Tank Engine shirt. (In fairness, he did not actually label himself that day.)

Meanwhile Vi showed up in her tutu and a princess shirt. She mentioned dancing, but the next moment she donned the catcher's mask Pa made recently.

So there you have it. Multiple interests, multiple identities, and hyphenation all over the place.
