23|2013 It was a trip (June 24 – 30, 2013)
I’ve been taking a video of my drive from the entry of my neighborhood to my house each week so that I can see the progress being made in our tornado devastated area. Eventually, I’ll put them together into a time lapsed video. Sometimes I also take a photo, which was the case this week. Five weeks after the May 20 tornado here’s a view of my neighborhood.
Friday I flew to Chicago for the American Library Association’s annual convention. While waiting for the shuttle to take me from the convention center to my hotel I found a llama hand puppet and enjoyed bringing him along to the various functions. One evening a group of us were invited to a private event at the House of Blues and Mr. Llama posed next to someone’s ‘goose’.
That same evening there was a photographer snapping pictures of all the guests enjoying the performers. Diane and I had our picture taken with the Blues Brothers imitators and I thought it was ‘a trip’ that we were selected as the facebook profile picture for the company.
