A wet, dripping umbrella tells the weather story of Mr. L's walk in from work.

Indianapolis is conspicuously preparing to host the NCAA Final Four Tournament. There are banners and ads everywhere including one we watched being hoisted on the side of a building on Monument Circle in downtown Indy.

(and GO BUTLER!)

Fun Stuff

A photo I entered in the Indiana Agriculture Department contest won first place in the Water Uses division. The shot is an old one taken a few years ago during a day at my sister's farm. Our now eight year old grandson climbed into our canoe with his fishing pole and a promise from his mom and aunt. The little guy waited patiently for 45 minutes before the girls were ready to take him for the promised canoe ride. This week we traveled to Indiana for a reception with the Lt. Governor to introduce the photos and photographers who placed in the contest. I'm not sure if our grandson was more pleased about being in the winning photo, getting to have lunch downtown in Indianapolis, meeting the Lt. Governor or getting to cut an afternoon of school. Who am I kidding--he liked getting out of school!


It's certainly a blessing to be able to share something I enjoy with a grandson who is equally interested. Eight year old Joshua and I spent an enjoyable hour photographing downtown Indianapolis.


I was certainly caught by surprise when I was greeted yesterday morning by snow covering the daffodils! I think the daffodils were surprised too.

A little photo multi-tasking. Was setting up a product shot for work and realized it would serve well as a photo walk post too.
The color cast on the thermos is caused by a manufacturing issue. I think the stainless steel construction below the outer coating is actually bleeding through slightly because there's a definite hint of color in the body.

My not so secret craving. I even have particular ones I dig through the bag to find. The ones that are sort of pitted and not so coated with that shiny food lacquer stuff--they dissolve faster, taste stronger. I've been known to dig under the seats in my truck when the bag turns up empty and I need a minty kick.
