No Red Eye Here!

A few weeks ago, a very stressed out Sammie was testing out camera settings and flashes in preparation for an upcoming shoot. He was especially concerned that the pictures not come out with red-eye. Naturally, I was the one with the flash in my face all night as he ran test after test. I was being especially goofy, trying to jar him from his nervousness. But he was all business. He snapped the following photo of me, hoping my eyes would not come out red.


After taking the picture (with a totally straight face) and pulling it up on his computer, he said very excitedly, and in all seriousness, "No red-eye here, Melba!"

How Do you Spell UPS?

The other night, Sammie and I came home to find the following post-it note on the front door of our building.


We had to pause for a moment, pondering how it was possible to misspell "UPS."

well ... the basics name is tinnitus ... there is a fancy name "otosclerosis" which refers to bone spurs on the three tiny bones in the ear ...

my dad has it, and i have it too, to a smaller degree. i noticed it starting in 2000, and it was bad for about 2 years ... but now it is non-existent (knock on wood!) ... good to have it checked if possible -- to make sure it isn't fast progressing ...

that is my "official" comment ...

unofficially ... i think the lack of red-eye on the picture is a good thing -- it was scary enough without it!!!

and lastly ... LOVED sammie's pics -- the one of the mariens was excellent ...
