Coldest House Ever






Here are some pictures of the "Coldest House Ever." To be fair and in all honesty, I had a heater running full blast all night. Add a couple of blankets and some sleeping bags and I was a few degrees past toasty. The first pic is my booties (hey now, this is a family blog!). It is customary to leave your shoes at the door, so they will give you something to wear in the house if it is cold (they also believe your plumbing stops working if you walk around on cold floors for a long time). The other shot is the owner and American Doc "John." This is him just lounging around the house - trying not to catch a cold. He is a recently turned empty nester with his wife visiting the states, you get the picture, guys love stuff like this - get the house warm or just put stuff on?

Last shot is my wife in two small cases. I will go over production gear soon and start talking technical stuff when shooting gets going (probably Morocco).

I am off to Church with John and then I am suppose to drive myself to the biblical town of Ephesus where the Apostle Paul stayed and wrote to the Ephesians. Did I mention I am driving myself? Oh yes, I will be recording some video of that!

Why do you think I am going to Church before I start driving in Turkey?

Diggin' the booties there, John. I remember when we were in that part of the world having to go outside to get warm.

Looking forward to seeing how the drive goes... watch out for crossing sheep. They don't move.
