Saddest Gummy Bear In the World

Oh well - I thought that I'd have lots and lots of cute pictures to post today. I took Schecky to get his hair cut (before he goes up to Tennessee to spend time with his grandparents) and I took lots and lots of before and after shots. However, Schecky isn't crazy about his new haircut, and for the moment he's not giving me any photo approval.

"That's OK," I thought - because I finished the "J is for Jai" bear last night, and he turned out to be a real cutie. Unfortunately, I waited too late in the day to try to take the pictures and the light was crap, and they all turned out blobby and murky.

As I was downloading the pictures - and realizing how disappointing they were- my battery died, so I'll have to wait until tomorrow to try again.

I was about to get all frustrated - I took 5 dozen pictures today, and I either don't have the OK to use them, or they were a disappointment. Then I noticed this picture. Schecky took it on the sidewalk near the haircutting place.

The best picture that got taken all day was of a smushed gummy bear. Sometimes life is just like that - it seems like it's just laughing at you. I am just happy that I'm in a place in my life where I can just roll my eyes and laugh right back...

I don't think it's too much of a stretch to say that Schecky's pretty much a photographic genius. So awesome.
