"The Mystery Annoyance of the 'Your iPhone Storage Is Almost Full' Message" has been solved. You're Welcome.
I take a lot of photographs. A LOT. It's a sickness that has exacerbated since the advent of digital photography, and the purchase of my first digital camera, an Ixla, back in 1999. Oh, and now that I have been able to take photos with my cellphone for well over ten years now, I take photos of damn near everything. I take photos of clouds. I take photos of trees. I take photos of random stuff like fruit in the supermarket, or buildings in Manhattan. I take photos of things going on around me. I take photos.
My first iPhone was a 3s, and then I went to the 5, and then the huge brick of a 6+. I'm still trying to get used to holding it and taking photos with the volume button without putting the phone in sleep mode by mistake because the designers at Apple moved the sleep button from the top to the side. Awkward! Anyway, for several years now, I have had to upload all of my photos to the iPhoto/Photos library and delete the photos on the phone to free up storage space. I would back the photos up though my old MacBookPro to an external hard drive. I got used to that for a while.

The Staten Island Polar Bears take their Annual Super Bowl Sunday Swim to Benefit St. Jude Childrens' Research Hospital
So, this happened again, but this time the tide was dead low. Jilly-O had checked the tides ahead of time, and sure enough, it was really necessary to wear water shoes that day as she suggested. The waterfront beach at the Lemon Creek Fishing Pier was a little rocky - especially after Hurricane Sandy destroyed the berm there some more, but it left plenty of room for the dozens of spectators on hand to watch the swim, which has been scheduled every Super Bowl Sunday at 1pm since 2001. The drainage in the parking lot is worse than ever, and there was a lot of flooding as usual because all of the melting snow, but these polar bears like the icy water. The conditions were perfect.
It is traditional to go to B&E's Pub before and after; before to get a little false courage; afterward everyone dries off and goes back to the bar for a full spread and the game.
I was told that the table of food was accidentally knocked over before the swim even began. I'm not sure how they dealt with that disaster. It's not easy to clean up trays of baked ziti and chicken marsala from the floor, I'm sure.
This year was not quite as big as in the past. This year is the 15th annual swim, and each year the crowd seems to get smaller and smaller. Some people are not physically able to do it, some people have passed, some people have moved away, but nonetheless we had the swim because it's fun and because the proceeds go toSt. Jude Childrens' Research Hospital.
We also used to have our Annual Super Bowl Party and box pool at Anderson's Annex, but Hurricane Sandy was the storm of which memories were made - including the destruction of our beloved tavern. Things change, time marches on, and we must create new traditions while keeping the old ones alive.

So Facebook made the magnanimous gesture to give us all a synopsis of our photo posts that have our friends tagged in them, and called it Friends Day today. It's just a ploy to get you to stay on Facebook all day today.Nope, sorry, can't do it. I've seen two or three, but I just can't do it all day, as hilarious as I'm sure some of them are.
However, since Facebook doesn't have my analog old-timey photos taken over the years, I decided to take out the boxes of photos that I just recently sorted out and make my *own* Friends Day video. It's really just a tease to those of you in here - and NOT in here - because there is SO much more than this!
My apologies to anyone left out - I had another pile aside I was going to use too, but they somehow did not make it into the pile you see here. I'll just have to make a follow-up another time. In the meantime, enjoy, and know I love every single one of you! Happy Forever Friends Day! Cathleen
Last month, The Staten Island Mall hosted an exhibition of landmarks made entirely of LEGO®. Since John was feeling well enough for me to drive him around on some errands, I asked him if he'd like to stop on the way home. Of course, both the history buff and the little kid in him wanted to go.
