In case you're wondering what we're doing in that picture - one of our former dispatchers who left the company last spring to move to Oklahoma and start a small restaurant, was diagnosed with cancer shortly after he moved west. Russ loved his Jack Daniels so we thought it would be nice to have a toast in his honor and take a picture to send out to him just to let him know we hadn't forgotten him and that he was there with us in spirit last night if not in person. Cheers, Russ!
As for the rest of this post, Amanda is probably going to want to wring my neck or take away my Nikon when she sees it, but I thought it would be fun to post some of the "outtakes" from when I was trying to get her to pose in front of the door to the second room that we stayed in at the Hawthorne like I've done in the past with Jamie. Needless to say, it was quite the undertaking!
"Okay, so what do you want me to do?"
"But I'm not scared so how am I supposed to look scared?"
"How about we go for contemplative instead of scared?"
"I know! We shall ward off the evil within!"
"Oh come on, Mom! Don't you have at least one you can use yet?"
Well, I guess it's pretty easy to see who the actress in the family is ...
Now if you'll excuse me, I guess I'll go back to working on that other post now!
