    As Santa hauled the two boys onto his knees he hoped they’d hide that fact that his trousers had shrunk in the wash…

    These two sweethearts from the tips of their identical magical shoes have captured my heart and soul.

    I realize I missed the deadline but something made me think of you and here you are! I was going to guess that the picture was of you and Tara on Henry Harvey’s lap. That took me back to such memories as “Freddy’s little Fudd” (our carpool nick name for Mickey in 6th grade). And then there are 5 blank years, followed by a half-summer each of the two of you (while the other contributed to the obesity of our nation selling frozen treats the size of our heads).
    Yes, I have a freakish memory. It can be deeply disturbing, especially as my data allocation is running out and I could really benefit from freeing up the space for more important things (“where are my glasses?” being primary; answer: on top of your head, dummy, just like last time).
    I can’t wait to read your book – Judy Jones (Stanley ALC Class of ’68? and Camp Wiedemann (R.I.P.)

    Craigslist is an oft overlooked advertising tool that even established photographers can find useful. However, make sure you avoid these two major pitfalls:1Don’t let quantity override quality and2don’t update your content too frequently.
