Had my Pop's memorial service this weekend. My sisters did a phenomenal job putting everything together and a huge call out to Annie's best friend Tami for all she did. La Famile Damiano came up as well for support. Much appreciated and love to them.

Here's a shot of the last place we got to go as a family for a vacation. North shore of Tahoe. One of my Pop's favorite places.

Jepepy's birthday

It's the boy's 21st birthday and to celebrate, we went to Jar for a steak dinner and cocktail. Young Mr. Storm is currently downing Singapore Slings in honor of Hunter S. Thompson. I told him that consuming drinks named after cities or states dissipates after your 30th. He is turning into a wonderful young adult. David Fincher,one of Jep's heros, was sat at the table next to us and Jep had to go to the bathroom to compose himself and I think, text every film school buddy about Mr. Fincher. It was mildly amusing to watch Jepepy struggle to make conversation with me while watching the next table. Thankfully for all of us , Jep refrained from leaning over and telling Mr. Fincher how much he loved Fight Club and Benjamin Button.

Back home

Caught an afternoon flight back from Nor-Cal. Took the back way home from Barham. I caught the lake and view at just the right time. I love the shortcut and the fact that no tourists know it either. I can put up with idiots standing in the middle of my street to take the picture of the sign but not up here.
