Fun with a flashy new cell phone…

May 12, 2008

Janet and I recently upgraded phones, and finally have phones with a built in camera. We haven’t used them all that much yet, but there have been a couple instances lately where they have been useful.

I always admire really clever people, who think outside the box, and will get what they want. I saw this a couple months ago as I was delivering Star Tribunes. When I saw it, I wished I had my camera… then behold, out comes my flashy new cell phone.

Here I am trying to entertain Cecelia while Mom’s taking Maeve to the bathroom.

Here’s another instance as I drove by I thought to myself, boy I wish I had a camera, then I remembered my flashy new cell phone! So I pulled a u-turn, and took this as I drove by. It’s hard to see, but in the very recently iced-out, freezing cold Lake Minnetonka waters, is a guy in the waters, putting in his dock.

Maeve recently had tubes put in her ears, and we forgot the camera… Zing! Out comes dad’s flashy new cell phone!

(Maeve’s doing great BTW)

Recently we celebrated my Uncle Lawrence’s and Aunt Janet’s birthdays at a big family get together. I saw my dad and all these old guys hanging out. So I took a picture of all these old troublemakers.

Ah… a beautiful Spring day… can’t you just hear the birds sing?

Here’s a couple days later… apparently they carried on with the Bass fishing tournament despite the snow…. notice the Coo Coo birds in the pontoon!

Here’s mom (or dad)… I laid very still for a few minutes before he came by to check out the nest. He heard the click of the camera, and flew off. Fortunately, he came back!

And here’s Agnes and Dawn… two baby Robins. And one egg who hasn’t hatched.

They joined their friend, Seth, for a bus ride. Seth means “Flying Eagle” in Greek.
