Hello Elaine!

Weblog reader Elaine Tureson from Hallock came to my attention yesterday at the chiropractor's office in Fertile where her daughter Betty works. She (Elaine, not Betty) is approaching her 90th birthday. Thanks for checking in, Elaine!

Stopped by the Fertile Hilton yesterday to see Aunt Olla. It was 9:30 in the morning, and she still wasn't dressed. I don't know what kind of show they run there, but that's getting pretty lax. So, I waited in the hall and chatted with Palma and Bernice for a while before being permitted to enter.

Blogging Break

I've been taking a break from blogging for a few days. There haven't been any real photo opportunities the past few days. Tonight, I was out driving and the sun came out for all of three minutes. I was hoping to find a scene to shoot with the wet tree trunks shining in the sun, but by the time I got anywhere to shoot the tree trunks, the sun went under.

There were some beautiful colors when the clouds turned pink as the sun set. The swamp was wet from the rain this afternoon, so everything was quite rich, but the sun was too far down to allow any decent photos.

Bias in the news

This just isn't fair. This guy in Sweden gets world-wide notoriety for getting carded at age 77. When Aunt Olla was carded for trying to by beer at the Moorhead Pizza Hut last year at age 95, the only coverage given the incident was on this weblog.
