Dad  My kids said I should share some of the stories I like to make up for them, so here we go!

I Hear You, Oh God. I was sitting by a window typing on the old typewriter today, watching the wind rustling the branches outside, listening to Ravel’s Piano Concerto in G major (M.83, Il, Adagio assai, Marta Agerlich, Berliner Philharmoniker), and this one came to me. #montblanc 149, #rhodia dot pad, #montblanc Emerald ink. #fpgeeks #writing #fountainpen #handwriting #ravel #classicalmusic #faith #fatherhood #dadlife #thankful #blessed #typewriter #smithcorona #analog #shortstory #storytelling #family #nature

Great Minds. Here’s a slightly different way to display these silly stories - in both handwritten form AND typewritten! How do ya like them apples? Maybe I’ll start also taking the pictures with the old Leica M3 on Ilford HP5 black and white film which I develop myself (#truestory) and then scan them in, coming full circle in my quest to be old fashioned and antiquated and completely analog. Then my kids will see how goofy their dad really can be!!! #montblanc 149, #montblanc Emerald ink, #rhodia dot pad. #filmphotography #leicam3 #ilfordhp5 #typewriter #fpgeeks #fountainpen #writing #shortstory #storytelling #childrensbooks #dadlife #analog #oldschool #oldfashioned #retro #smithcorona

Math Problems. #truestory. I promise I’ll get back to handwriting stories with fountain pens but at the moment I’m distracted by this darn typewriter! #typewriter #fpgeeks #childrensbooks #math #homework #distraction #dadlife #timetravel #fountainpen #writing #shortstory #storytelling #smithcorona #analog

My analog kick continues! I’m enjoying writing stories with this old 1955 Smith Corona Silent-Super - and this picture was taken with a similar vintage Leica M3 on Ilford HP5 black and white film that I developed and scanned all by myself. See, I’m Mr Analog! #childrensbooks #writing #film #analog #typewriter #dadlife #fpgeeks #fountainpen #shortstory #storytelling #leica #blackandwhite #leicam3 #filmphotography #ilfordhp5

Barnyard Etiquette. This is what happens when a layover is longer than one hour. #visconti Michelangelo, #montblanc Irish Green ink, #rhodia dot pad. #fpgeeks #fountainpen #storytelling #chicken #barnyard #farm #etiquette #cotillion #proper #manners #absurd #layover #businesstravel #shortstory #childrensbooks #goofy #proper #poem #poetry

New storytelling medium! Won’t replace fountain pens but kind of a fun way to mix it up. Picked up a mid-1930’s Royal model “O” typewriter and after some cleaning, I was immediately inspired to write. Fun! #fpgeeks #fountainpen #storytelling #typewriter #shortstory #childrensbooks #analog #dadlife

I’m still here! I’ll be writing more soon, just been swallowed up by a new job and such. Stay tuned for more, instagram browsers! #fpgeeks #fountainpen #storytelling #writing #childrensbooks #cursive #analog #shortstory

Wow it’s been like 2 months since I have posted!! Insanely busy summer obviously. Well this is a morbid way to get back into writing but I heard this poem and thought it was really good so here you go - “When I am Dead” (author unknown). #montblanc 149, #montblanc Lavender Purple ink, #rhodia dot pad. #cursive #writing #fountainpen #fpgeeks #shortstory #storytelling #poem #morbid #death #forgiveness #friendship #childrensbooks #dadlife

Hebrews 12:1-2. Been rediscovering some old words from a childhood spent in a Baptist church. The #kingjames version is so classic. #montblanc 149, #montblanc Antoine de Saint-Exupéry Encre du Desert ink, #rhodia dot pad. #fpgeeks #fountainpen #writing #storytelling #shortstory #childrensbooks #bible #allanbible #dadlife #cursive #handwriting #analog

Screech Owl. Inspired by true events. I wonder how many bus drivers have received a similar message, disguised by loud silly noises from their passengers... #montblanc 149, #montblanc Irish Green ink, #rhodia dot pad. #handwriting #storytelling #shortstory #dadlife #fpgeeks #fountainpen #familylife #cursive #childrensbooks #childhood #middleschool #busdriver #schoolbus #elementaryschool

I’ve just been copied on this urgent request. Talk about a red alert! I think this qualifies as a Defcom 1 - level emergency. I hope they “launch” an effort to fix this problem ASAP! Someone better sh** or get off the proverbial pot on this one or it’s gonna hit the turbine fan! #pelikan m200, #montblanc Lucky Orange ink, #rhodia dot pad. #nasa #spacetravel #rocket #cosmos #cosmology #plumbing #toilet #gross #internationalspacestation #orbit #fpgeeks #fountainpen #writing #cursive #childrensbooks #dadlife #shortstory #storytelling #dadhumor #dadjokes #handwriting #analog
