Busy day…

I am glad that tomorrow is having a somewhat slower start to the day. Up and out the door by 915, to take photos at a new sport group that is operating in town. After that, it was down to Hanna to give a presentation on mental health and PTSD for a class project for … Continue reading Busy day…

You live, you learn…

As busy as today was, I still managed to find some downtime. I was up early, and had the plumber stop in to check on a couple of things that we need to get dealt, then off to the lodge to do a photo shoot for the church members who live up there. It was … Continue reading You live, you learn…
