Hello and a happy Friday to you.
I hope that this glorious day is treating you well.
Did you see what arrived in my mail today?
When did I get old?
How did this happen?
Who decides that at 51 years & 120-ish days that I need this?
why doesn't this person
know my current last name?
why do I not remember "joining" in 2008?
I know I don't remember diddly squat,
but I would have remembered this.
I would like to wish my children's daddy
(and my grandchildren's grandpa)

I wish you the best, Wayne
I hope you have a glorious birthday weekend.
Senior picture time is here.
Johnna and I went out last night for a "road trip" picture taking session.
We let her mom & Mindy tag along.
We started out in Highland Park.
It was a beautiful evening just full of possibilities.
I love the evening sun with the subtle pinks in the shot.
So I took a couple of hundred shots.
I thought I would show you just one or two.
Johnna is just so easy to work with.
She always has a ready smile & her attitude is wonderfully upbeat.
Even if she doesn't completely agree with what I ask of her,
she carries out the pose. It is nice to work with a cheerful teenager.
|This is a pocket with Eric's last name on it in tribute|
for his service to his country.
Johnna is living through her senior year.
She is dating Eric, who is away at boot camp right now.
She misses him keenly. But she continues on with her life
knowing that she will see him in a few weeks.
I am very proud of her.
After Highland Park, we all loaded up in the van and drove to our next shots.
We had some dangerous moments (like the bridge with all the traffic)
BUT we survived.
We drove out to the Greentown area
and took some shots in the pumpkin field.
I fell off of a pumpkin that I tried to perch on
and landed on my butt in the mud.
All in all I took about 200 photos that I will
used in the "cleaning" process for this portion of her package.
We used a few places that I like to keep "guarded",
so I am not going to give up my secret places here.
We ended our session at the railroad tracks in Greentown.
The sun was going down and we were fighting
the time limit trying
to get in all the pictures in that we wanted.
I came home and wanted to fall over, but no time for that.
I have several packages of pictures
that need to be cleaned in front of this package.
I am still working on Sally's pictures.
Here is one that I have been playing with:
Kind of interesting, huh?
I ran it through several filters and it looks like a painting.
I need to get Fred's (Sally) photos done for next week,
so I will keep plugging away at that.
We have a full weekend ahead.
Al is going to be judging a parade on Sunday.
I can't wait because it is a corn festival
and that sounds right up my alley.
I wonder if I will be lucky enough to see
a person dressed up as an ear of corn?

I am taking my camera, so you will know by Monday.
Have a great weekend everybody.
