CERT Couture

I thought I’d take a break from reporting on all the things that make me worry these days and post some fun photos from a photoshoot Bug and I did at my parents. My dad has hired me to get his social media account going for his business. I’m not an expert but I am available for the very low price of FREE so he’s very happy with my work. :) It’s slow going of course but I plan to post at least three photos a week for him. It should be fun.

I tried to model but I just don’t have it like I used to. I’m representing for the gray hairs in the house though. Woot! Woot!

Bug is a natural model, obviously. It doesn’t hurt that she’s been posing since birth and she’s taken direction from photographers her whole life.

These pants, aren’t they crazy? They are supposed to be for people directing traffic in the rain but I’m thinking Bug could start a trend at her high school if I let her. They make a ton of noise when she walks. Swish, swish, swish! Watch her swish down the runway.

My dad is really passionate about his business. He sells protective wear for emergencies service people and search-and-rescue teams.  It started out as a hobby when he was selling gloves for truckers but now it’s a full time gig that we hope someday pays his bills. I hope I can help him grow it. He lives and breaths all things Community Emergency Response Team.

If you know my dad, you KNOW it’s all he talks about and you’ve probably watched the FEMA movie about teen CERT teams. He’s taken the class and he’s started a CERT team in his community. He calls up CERT teams all over the country one by one, talking to them about everything CERT and how he can help them get reflective 8-in-1 bomber jackets. He’s trying to get us to become CERT members too and I think we will when the pandemic is over but for now we’re packing our go-bags and passing the word along to you.  It is a really good cause and I think everyone needs to think about it. It seems like everyday some new bad news drops from the sky, it can’t hurt to be ready for fires and earthquakes and I don’t know… zombies?! right?

I said I wasn’t going to talk about what I’m worried about. Let’s talk about giant baggy reflective pant fashion!

    Boy, that Bug makes big, neon yellow pants look so fashionable – she really should start a (noisy) trend! Great shots. And loooveee the banner!

    Bug could go clubbing in those trousers. In fact I think day glo stuff was popular in the 90’s. Yup now I come to think of it, I had a few items of clothing from a company called Cyber Dog in this style. Can you imagine me in tiny skirt, manga t shirt and stacked trainers. Yup it happened. Nope, my mother never saw me dressed like that.

    Being CERT trained seems like a really sensible thing to be
