Rain Rain Go Away

I don't think we've had more than two days of sunshine in a row for the last three weeks and it's really starting to wear me down. Seems the rain only stops long enough to get the lawn mowed.

We start this week's blog off with a picture of Don Friday, the new head coach for men's basketball at Saint Francis University.

Along with a new coach, the basketball court is also getting a new look. In the last several weeks the old surface has been refinished and new graphics are being added.

One of the graphic artists is removing the edging tape prior to reapplying new tape so the letter can be filled in with a coat of white paint.

In all of the years that I had suet feeders out, I never saw a Blue Jay using one.

Stuffed toy owl sitting on a bookshelf in the Hastings Public Library. I was using the owl as an example of close-up photography in a class that I'm teaching at the Library on Thursday nights in May 2008.

On Saturday night, the DCW gang invaded the Memorial Building in Hastings for a fund raiser to benefit the Lindsey Depto Memorial Fund.

Bigtime Bill stretched out Kato while the ref keeps his eye on the action. Kato would go on to win the match.

This one is growing about 10 yards from our house.

I was bored being stuck in the house again all day, so I shot this still life of a dish of candy with a set of salt and pepper shakers.
