Hello, November.

This morning November got off to a cold and rainy start…

Happy Halloween!

All these Donald Deskey bobbleheads were dressed up for today’s holiday, and I thought it would make a cute Halloween post on Instagram…

But I wrong. And was told to take it down. The reason was the left bobblehead’s red smock was actually a cape. I was told he looked like he was at the barber shop. And it was embarrassing. I was also told the ghost’s name around the base of the bobblehead was inappropriate and we definitely don’t want to post that. Yeah, I can’t read it either.

The good news is it only took me nine photos to get the one I would end up posting…

You try to do something fun for Halloween. 😶🤔👻❤️

Tag! You’re it.

There was that really cool “Mark Rothko-esque” graffiti cover-up on the side of this building in downtown Cincinnati. Someone wasn’t all that happy about their bomb being bombed, and I found it pretty funny…

I guess it’s important to maintain your sense of humor when someone ruins all of your hard work. And that’s a very important lesson to learn, especially in my industry. Taken with Instagram. 😀🎨🖌️❤️

It was a rainy Monday morning.

It was a rainy, grey first Monday morning of autumn in downtown Cincinnati. You could barely see the tiara atop Great American Tower. Taken with Instagram. 😀☁️🏙️🌧️❤️

Thunderstorms.

I captured this timelapse of thunderstorms forming over downtown Cincinnati. And once they moved in, they stayed for the rest of the night…

It was such a stormy night. Taken with Instagram. 😀☁️🌧️❤️

Good morning and good evening from Northside.

It was the oddest thing.

The oddest thing that happened to me today. An entire set of pins we made for our wedding guests in Jamaica showed up my mailbox at the office…

Kinda odd, right? Taken with Instagram. #gtfjamaica2016 

Now that was a final.

We made our way over to Higher Gravity this morning to watch the 2018 World Cup final between France and Croatia. We were pulling for France, they were our pre-tournament pick to lift the World Cup but mostly we just wanted to see a really terrific final match regardless of who actually won. We were surprised with how much Higher Gravity really filled in as the match was about to begin…

And boy was it ever a good match! The perfect end to a truly incredible tournament. The match ended 4-2 to France. SIX goals in a World Cup final, are you kidding me? Most of the World Cup finals are so conservative, defensive and boring. No one wants to make a mistake. This match was 90 minutes of end-to-end excitement. I didn’t want it to ever end. But all good thing have to come to an end… VIVA LA FRANCE!

And I finally got to get a photo with Jason from Higher Gravity’s Doggie the Dog

I’ve been following Doggie on Instagram since right after Higher Gravity opened about a year ago. But what an amazing month of soccer and an outstanding World Cup! It was one of the better ones in recent memory…

We’re already starting the four-year countdown to the next incredible World Cup. The next one will be in Qatar. And we can’t wait for more World Cup excitement.
