Eight Years Ago...

I won't say much about it, except to point out this poster that came out seven years ago.

It's a poster that I and another artist created at the ad agency I worked for at the time. It remains some of my best work, I think. I hadn't really thought about it in a while, until an old coworker posted it on FaceBook today.

Beatles Rock Band has made it to our house... so yeah, not much is getting done round there. The only way that things are even getting tidied up is that folks are coming over tonight... you know, to play Beatles Rock Band.

Labor Day came and went in a road trip to Chicago. It was a good time, as all Labor Days should be, a day off and saying goodbye to the summer. I do, however, try to take a moment to think about what that day is about. My dad was a union man, and at one time, I've was part of the UAW as well.

I know the unions have done a lot for my family, for a few generations now; I come from a few generations of factory and auto workers. There will always be a blue collar wrapped around my heart.

It's excellent work.

And I'm a union kid, too. People forget how bad the working conditions used to be in this country. People forget a lot of things others sacrificed to make better for them.

Thanks for checking in, though. Glad to know you're out there being you still.

That poster gives me goosebumps, even 8 years later.
