Donald Deskey on CBS Sunday Morning.

Our company’s namesake, Donald Deskey was featured on CBS Sunday Morning

“Sunday Morning” looks back at the career of Donald Deskey, an advertising man, and designer behind New York City’s Art Deco showcase (and of many consumer products), who died on April 29, 1989 at the age of 94.

And via the Deskey website…

Donald Deskey pioneered the idea that design shapes modern life. He designed Radio City Music Hall and helped reinvent the humble chair. When he saw the need for clarity in the supermarket, he helped invent modern branding. By building from core shared values, he created enduring brands that inspire us to this day.
We are his people.

And I’m proud to call myself one of his people. 😀👍❤️

Wow, I’m popular.

Apparently, my photos on Google Maps are very popular…

It’s pretty nice to be popular. 😀🗺️📷❤️

Genifer had Lasik surgery.

This afternoon Genifer had Lasik surgery at Lasik Plus in Kenwood

She was really nervous but powered through the procedure. We were at the doctor for about forty-five minutes. But the actual procedure only took about ten minutes, and then she was on her way home…

She was told to go home and take a four-hour nap. After she woke up from her nap, she could see just fine without contacts or glasses. She has to put medicated eyedrops in her eyes for the next couple weeks. And she can’t rub her eyes for some time while her eyes heal. But that’s pretty much that. It’s rather amazing what modern medical science can do nowadays. And that are people with the knowledge and intestinal fortitude to perform these procedures. 😀🏥👁️❤️

5 year anniversary.

Yesterday marked my 5-year anniversary at Deskey. When I got up to my office on the sixth floor this morning, I found this on my desk…

I have it pretty good. Thanks to Deskey for a great first five years! Cheers to the next five being even better! 😀🖐️5⃣🍺❤️

Happy Easter!

HAPPY EASTER! We had a very nice Easter Sunday. Genifer made me this really sweet little Easter basket…

We got a wonderful Easter card from JJVE with some terrific artwork from Violette…

Here’s a photo Jeannette sent of Violette with her artwork and the bunny she drew us…

And here’s a photo Josh sent of Violette with her bunny. It was the bunny we sent her from Happy Groundhog Studio

Later, Genifer’s mom came over and my parents came down from Michigan for the night on their way out east to do some antiquing and they brought some delicious Pizza King pizzas down with them…

YUM! Pizza King pizza is sooo good. My mom also brought down a very delicious cherry cobbler. It was a very nice surprise to get to spend Easter evening with my parents and Genifer’s mom. It turned out to be a really nice Easter. 😀🐰🐣❤️

On a personal note, I need to take more photos when people come over or when we do things with other people. I need to make more of a conscious effort to make sure I take at least one photo of everyone together. I really need to do a better job of that. I just 😀📷❤️

Happy Opening Day!

It’s one of the best days of the year… baseball is back! Hooray!

Happy Opening Day from Cincinnati! 😀⚾️❤️

ps. Is it just me or is it weird that they chose to start the baseball season on a Thursday… in March? And it’s somehow poetic justice that the Reds first game was rained out and will be played tomorrow. They should have just started the season on a Monday… in April like they’ve always done before.

Hello Spring!

Today is the first day of Spring! So why is so cold? And rainy and grey?

1337!

For some reason, WordPress thought it necessary to send a notification congratulating us on our 1337th post to our blog

I could understand it if it was the 1300th post or the 1350th post or definitely the 1500th post. But celebrating the 1337th post? Seems a little bit odd to me. It’s very specific. But hey, I guess you gotta celebrate the little things too! 😀📮❤️

Timehopping.

One year ago today, we got this awesome Twister selfie at the Cyclones game

Thanks for remembering, Timehop! We haven’t made it to one Cyclones hockey game yet this season. We’re hoping to get to at least one game in March now that I’m actually able to walk a better. And we definitely can’t wait to get back our normal schedule of Cyclones hockey games next season once my hips are good again. 😀👇📷🏒❤️

Valentine’s Day blooms.

The Valentine’s Day flowers I got Genifer are really beginning to bloom…

As it the Valentine’s Day Koala she got me…
