Family Photos

Here is the final project from my class.  It took a long time to figure out how to get it into a format that I could play online.  I have to tell you that it is missing the wonderful quotes that I had between sections. 

I suggest watching it in the small format.  It is super grainy if you enlarge it to watch it.

The music is by Keith Driskill.  The song is called Fireflies (copyright 2009).  I used the song with Mr. Driskill's permission.

I have typed the quotes below for those who are interested in them. 

"Rejoice with your family in the beautiful land of life."  ~Albert Einstein

"One of the greatest things a father can do for his children is to love their mother."  ~Howard W. Hunter

"The best inheritance a parent can give to his child is a few minutes each day."  ~M. Grundler

"A sibling maybe the keeper of one's unfettered, more fundamental self."  ~Mariana Sandmaier

"Every star is different, and so is every child.  Some are bright and happy, and some are meek and mild."  ~John C. Cameron

What an adventure!

Yesterday I had a little adventure.  I went to have lunch  with a girlfriend.  Spending time with her is always an adventure.  I've gone deep sea fishing with her.  I have gone pet koi (my favorite is Lucy).  Well, yesterday I had another adventure with the koi, actually two adventures.  I dangled my feet in their pool.  I don't have ticklish feet but it sure tickled when they sucked on my feet.  Please don't think I would do this with just any fish.  I've known these fish for a decade.  My girlfriend asked for help with a task and I jumped at the opportunity.  I vacuumed the bottom of the pond.  It was soooooooooooooooooooo cool.  Well, it really was cool during the hot afternoon. 

This picture was taken shortly after getting out of the pond and just before going home.
