Jeff Parker Retrospective – Day 2

You think you might know Jeff Parker, the man, or Jeff Parker, the father, but did you know that there is also … Jeff Parker, the farmer?

I don’t exactly remember what what going on in this photo, but Jeff appears to be tilling up the dirt around one side of the House of the Rising Sun to plant a garden. Who knows how green Jeff’s thumb turned, but you can tell that he is either a master tiller or he is just getting started, because he is still mud-free…

Jeff got it in his head to plant grass at the House of the Rising Sun. It was shade grass and was really thin if you looked down on it. However, since the house was on a hill, from the street it looked great! You should see that house now – painted and loved and owner-occupied!

I just stumbled upon an email from my late wife Alaina, which I apparently had never read. It contained a link to this post and a question as to whether the Baja jacket in the photo is the one that she now owned. I honestly have no clue — on a side note, when I was going through a box of Alaina’s clothing, I found a blue Patagonia base layer that was originally owned by Dave that I somehow ended up with when I was passing through Prague in 95 and kept forgetting to give to him (I have it sitting in an envelope with plans of mailing it back to him) Back to the Baja — a few months ago the white baja surfaced and I gave it to one of my kids. I thought it had either always been Alaina’s or was maybe one that I had from high school – now I am really not sure.
