Kodak Moment #100

I got hundreds to thousands of photos through my life.  A lot of which would match up to stories here on Cowabunga Corner, but for one reason or another they are not chosen.  This does not mean that these photos are not worth sharing and do not hold stories of their own.  I would like to keep sharing what I can here on the site, so whenever I can I will share a photo and a story to go along with the photo.  If it’s a part of events that has been shared here, we will link back to the stories of the events themselves as well.  Hope everyone enjoys.  Today’s photo is me holding my friend’s son at Motor City Comic Con 2000. 

Happy Halloween everyone!  I felt it was right for a Halloween photo to share my favorite Halloween costume that I have, even if the picture is not from Halloween itself.  This photo is from another important time for me.

Timothy was born in November 1999, and this photo was taken in May 2000.  So small, it’s hard to believe he’s going to be 19 soon.  I watched him grow up, as his mother has been one of my best friends since 1999.

My costume is seven years old here and starting to show it’s age.  The original costume my dad built in 1990 was retired in 1993 when we made this costume.  Though I wanted to wear it for the weekend as I held the Turtle Con 2000 booth and it only felt right to be Michaelangelo for the most of the time over the weekend.  This photo was taken in the hotel where we held our Saturday night party

I love this photo because Timothy is still a friend of mine.  I care about him, as I watched him grow up and been there for him and his family as much as I can be.  He moved out of Michigan about a year ago.  This photo reminds me of the innocents he came from to the young man he is today.

Have you watched your friend’s kids grow up in front of your eyes, are they your friends?  Do you have a picture of you with a Turtle as a baby?  Please share thoughts, comments and questions below!
