So long Uncle Buck!

Yours truly with Lori Abe, Buck and Donivee Laird, and David McNeil.

More than 100 staff of Anthology Marketing Group gathered at the Banker’s Club last night to say aloha to Buck Laird who retired after a 35-year advertising career in Hawaii. Buck was one of the most recognized figures in the advertising community and co-founded of the state’s largest advertising agency, Laird Christianson Advertising, in 1989 with David McNeil and David Wilson (founders of McNeil Wilson Communications).

It was a great night filled with humorous and heartfelt speeches, creative videos, and with Buck surrounded by his family, friends, and co-workers. I’ll miss seeing Uncle Buck around the office and wish him a fun and exciting retirement. Word on the street is he’s got a cool new Mini Cooper to keep him occupied. Here’s a few photos from last night’s gathering.

    Melissa, it’s one of the options when I upload photos to the site. It asks if you want the full photo or thumbnail. From there, I have the options to open it in the same page or in a new page. WordPress really takes care of it all. That’s why I’m able to blog, otherwise I’d be completely lost.

    Nathan, how do you get the photos like that in WordPress? Where the thumbnails appear but you can click on it to make it bigger?
