in northern Kentucky.
We usually see each other at Christmas, or if we're lucky, the girls' birthday parties.
I think that my family secretly thinks I am a flake (which was probably true a long time ago) but I am proud of what I do at RAPTOR, and thought that some live entertainment would liven up the shindig. I wanted to show them what I do...the coolest job in the world.
I brought the red screech owl, the great horned owl and dear sweet Lucy.
This is the only shot Geoff was able to get on my close-to-death digital camera (it's going south, too).
I remembered a comment on Birdchick
about cheap digital cameras at drug stores. So I went in to look and found this tiny little camera for $10. It's not one of those disposible ones...I checked them out, and they take film. Um, doesn't that go against the "digital" idea?
I just can't go without a digital camera. The girls do way too many cute things, and I have to blog, so we will see how this tiny camera does. It doesn't zoom, and there is no monitor, but it will work in a pinch.
As I drove over most of the Greater Cincinnati area today, I lost count of how many monarch butterflies I saw. And every time one appeared, I looked at my compass, and they were always going south. It was cool.
