Sorry for the disproportionate number of photos of doonst and me... photographers tend to have an unconscious bias towards their boyfriend and the Maniac chasing/being chsed by that boyfriend... :wink:

Great pics, thanks Lisa. I love pictures of me! Isn't there any of Dave in front of me? None at all?

This blackbird's mute gonna sing again

Those are GREAT photos!! I love the one of Sheldon and Dave running up the tree lined trail (the last one). Everyone looks like they are having so much fun! Well, they are all smiling anyhow!

One question, is that a satellite dish sitting on concrete in the middle of a field?? (in the individual photos of Dave and Sheldon).
