I can't wait to see my niece in PA!



I just sent this email to my niece... it's too funny not to post! She takes excellent photos, thank the Lord! While my pilot knocks out the all important second FAA required check flight for him to obtain his Powered Parachute Sport Licensing... during our visit there, I can finally have a few decent pictures taken of me with Sydney, and Chance, too!

My puppy is growing like a weed and your uncle, for the life of him, can't take a decent photo of me! I have no idea what the deal is. I've taken precious shots of him with Sydney, when she was still tiny, and as she's grown the past two weeks. Forever keepsakes! But, I give him the camera so her momma can have a few pics with her baby dog, too. What do I get? Headless photos, hair blowing straight up -- no mention to me that it needed fixing. One adorable shot, totally blurry -- totally! And, the sad thing is that my camera has a fantastic image stabilization feature. Even jostling in the powered parachute, it works great! We tried again yesterday after church. The pics he took are simply horrible. Seriously, I almost cried. Two weeks ago I could hold her in one hand. Yesterday, she's literally hanging under my arm with her feet touching my waste. Thank God I'm coming to see you so you can take a few pics with my camera. I fear in two weeks my little baby dog will be an adult and my window of photo ops will be over!

In case you can't tell in the above photo, Sydney and I are both in black and white. I'm the one with half a head and missing a hand -- she's the one NOT looking at the camera! It's easy to tell, I did not take the photo!

Oh my gosh Jeanne...I know it's not funny, but I'm cracking up here! You poor thing...all you want is a few decent pix! Ah well, hope is on the horizon!! I can't BELIEVE how much Miss Sydney has grown - good grief! Sigh...babies and puppies - they just don't stay little long enough, do they?!

Gigi, it is funny. Totally! I just know time for little puppy pics is running out rapidly. LOL! The girl has gained over a pound and a half since we picked her up Saturday before last. She was wishy washy about her food the first day here, but she's loving it now. You're right babies and pups don't stay little long. At the rate Sydney is growing, she'll be a pre-teen doggy in no time. :)

Was that supposed to be a head shot of you? Or was the photographer working for the Virginian-Pile It which has policy of photos from mid-forehead down?

Hey Moe! I asked him about that, he said he was aiming for the pup and going for a full shot of the two of us. Heavens to Betsy!

Hugs...

Jeanne, Puppies are usually not cooperative as subjects. The photographer forgot what he was shooting at. Tell him not to quit his day job! ;-)

Ha! You're so right... it's all about timing and catching the right moment, isn't it? He's in law enforcement, so although retired from his career, he's now working with another agency. No cameras involved, thank goodness!

It's good to see you. Give Charlie a hug from my Springer kids. :)
