The Troutslayer trip to Taneycomo was great. Didn't last long, but was nice to get away. Angie and I had fresh trout for dinner on Monday night. Yum.

The weather around here sucks this week. It's rainy and cold. The beginning of the end.
Speaking of the end, I can't wait until the election is over. It's all getting so ridiculous. The ads, the media, the bullshit. Enough.
I've been re-listening to the 6th Harry Potter book this week as I drive. I miss the dream world sometimes. It's nice avoiding all the news as well. Reality can be a stupid ugly bitch.

Lots going on this month…

Happy Birthday to my nephew Jordan who will be eleven on Saturday.

Good Luck to my brother George, who will be running his first marathon on Sunday.

We’re 90% certain that Alex may have landed a job with HyVee in Ankeny. Very cool.

A couple of weeks ago I had the privilege of photographing the wedding of my best friend from childhood. It was small & informal, but very nice. Congratulations Andy & Maria.

Last Saturday, I took some senior photos of a young man we go to church with. My first set of a non-relative. It went ok. I’m thankful that we had his girlfriend and my daughter with us. Having a female point of view certainly helped.

You know that tooth Madeline lost about four years ago? Well its replacement is finally coming in. She will look funny with a mouth full of teeth.

The fall color show is in full swing right now. I LOVE this time of year. I wish October was three months long.

I’m headed to Taneycomo with the Troutslayers for our annual campout. We’re leaving at 3:30am tomorrow (Friday) and will be back on Sunday evening. We normally do our fall campout in southern Iowa or northern Misery, but this year Taneycomo was calling.

Lastly, Happy Birthday to my son Robby, who’d be 14 tomorrow. If he were here, I bet he’d want me to take him for his driving permit asap. If only.

Only 195 miles left to my goal of 500. I’m behind schedule, but barring any health/body issues, I can still make it.
