In Cahoots

Baiting the Old Man

I managed to capture a totally candid moment between Freja & her very best buddy. I've been watching these two since they bonded two years ago. It's so rewarding to see how well they compliment each others' personalities. I took this as they reviewed the comic strip series they're designing and producing here at home. Naturally the main characters are ones that were intended to bait ME into protesting their very nature. I mean, "Flying Fart Girl" as a hero? Really? *I just tell myself, "Ron, you did a LOT worse to irritate your parents, just ride it out...*

Playing in the Mississippi

The Mississippi River

It's a cold winter day and after a brisk walk around the block I was very happy to sit down next to my warm computer. As I opened my browser I happened upon a photo I'd taken in June of 2014. It was a warm spring afternoon. Freja had just finished 1st grade and summer vacation had begun. We went for a camping trip to Wyalusing State Park. We were able to play in the Mississippi River at Glenn Lake boat landing. The kid chased minnows through the shallow waters and eventually ended up soaked. Of course, that was not surprising. On frigid days like this it's nice to recall that it's not always going to be this way. We will be able to play freely outdoors in the water once more!
