|Laurin and her fiance|
The weather was cold, wet, foggy, sleety, snowy and down right miserable. On Saturday night there had been 300 and some car accidents...(we were not among them).
Perhaps when the weather is better I'll be able to take some more photos of Laurin and her fiance as they are both very photogenic.

|Blue Cloth Flower|
We had the Annual Photo Contest at the Linn Area Photography Club. The judge was the Superintendent of the Photography Salon for the Iowa State Fair. I learned a lot today - while he was judging a lot of folks had their cameras and were there to learn more about them - the object being to get out of the "automatic mode" and to use the camera to create photographs not snapshots. A photographer's goal is to show "...the world has it has never been seen..."
We practiced bracketing and macro shots (the blue cloth flower).
Back to the contest - I received a Third Place in the "Scenery/Landscape" category and an "Honorable Mention" in the Portrait category.

|Shannon Meets the Men in Purple|
A short story - our Priest's wife Denise works in the Waterloo School District with special needs kids, and one of her students is Shannon. Shannon goes to school every day dressed in University of Northern Iowa Purple. According to her Mother, "She has every UNI shirt that exists."
I overhead her Dad telling the players that part of the rug in her room is the old astroturf from the Dome. This girl loves the team, watches and goes to the games and wears purple EVERY DAY.
Denise had mentioned this to Fr. Mitch, who knew a guy, who knew a guy and low and behold 4 of the players agreed to meet Shannon. They gave her a signed football, and shared stories, asked her questions and answered hers. It was a pleasure to be there and watch as she came down the hall and saw these 4 VERY large men in purple jerseys waiting to meet her. It was a good end to the day...

We have a tradition where the babies do not get their haircut until their 1st birthday. Yesterday, Daniel got his 1st haircut on his 1st birthday. Daniel was there (of course), his parents, Uncle John, Aunt Laura, Cousin James and Cousin Katharine, along with Grandma Helen and myself. It was quite the entourage which descended on Regis where the haircut took place. Daniel did extremely well and didn't even flinch when the clippers came out.
