We happened to get a disposable camera at an auction in the summer of '99, and gave it to Mike when he asked for it. To our surprise, he took some very respectable pictures for a first timer! Now he has his own camera, a special one that takes 4 small pics for each frame of film. But of course what he prefers is to borrow Mom's digital!

Here's our four geese on weed patrol. (They are badly outnumbered, but game.)

And this is our house!

This is me dipping up grain for the poultry. Mike may have a career ahead as a photographer for the tabloids--or a blackmailer.

Or not....

Though as a portrait it does capture a certain bizarre 'je ne sais quoi'.
