The Kid

Our nephew Zachary runs XC (cross-country) for his high school’s junior varsity team. He has had an up and down season. He came in 7th in a recent race and medaled. He ran in the Division 4 races last weekend and will run in this weekend’s Sectionals in Washington,MO.

He also had straight A’s on his last report card and has been on the Honor Roll every quarter.

All in all– a pretty good kid.

Now that the dust has settled–bad news and good news

The bad news–Cardinals fail to make the playoffs.

There is an old saying that the sun is shining somewhere– in this case it is for blog subscribers and old friend and mentor Sam Hampton and his missus,Susan McCall of the Bay area. Their Giants are in the Wild Card game and have a chance to win the World Series. I hope they beat every team with blue in their uniform.

Good News 

Last week I had the honor to be one of the judges for the Jefferson County Photo Club’s 5th Annual Photography Competition. Blog subscriber and friend,Paul Fisher was the big winner in many of the categories and pulled off having the best of the best image in the competition.

They had a very strong field of images and the judging was tough. I had a ball and enjoyed working with the other judges Tina Crist and Gary McMichael. The Jefferson County Club put on a great competition and I saw some excellent photography.
