The producers of Lucy and the Taken trilogy bring us The Transporter Refueled , the next adrenaline-fueled installment of The Transporter series, starring newcomer Ed Skrein as Frank Martin, the most highly-skilled transporter money can buy. The stakes are greater and technology better, but the same three simple rules apply: Never change the deal, no names and never open the package. When Frank is hired by cunning femme fatale Anna and her three stunning sidekicks, he quickly discovers he’s been played. Anna and her cohorts have kidnapped his father (Ray Stevenson) in order to coerce Frank into helping them take down a ruthless group of Russian human traffickers.

I contemplate shaving, in hopes of that authentic clean-cut look so my boss can prance me round like a prized pony at a minstrel show, but I refuse and quickly dry off, throw on this and that, then the long awaited cup of Joe fresh of black and... There would be new life come the return of Spring, but that would be some time in the making and for now I watched patiently as the leaves plummeted as feathers left behind by their masters…never to return, piling in stacks, knowing nothing better... I pout another cup of sweet Joe sprinkle in a hint of ecstasy for old time’s sake. I revisit reverberations these wild nights spent partying for the sake of a hedonistic hoo-rah…one final one before sobriety steps in, fixing the damage done ( note: it never happens ). We run through fields kicking fairy dust from earth’s roots...
My blog is combination of my paintings and experience with painting and my long time interest in my family's genealogy. I have been painting for about 20 years but really only in earnest for the past 5 or so. My genealogic pursuits started about 20 years ago when I learned that the local Mormon Family History Library had microfilms from all over the work.
