As I have complained before, it is nearly impossible to take a decent photo of Annie. She doesn't tolerate calm. Today I took her for a walk on our road. The wind and rain knocked many colorful leaves to the ground. I noted how pretty the light was falling on her and grabbed my iPhone. That was a silly idea because as soon as I did that, she had to satisfy her curiosity as to what might be in my hand. As I jerked the phone out of her reach, my finger hit the shutter and voila, a realistic photo of my Annie.
She's in the dog house tonight, though. She decided my nearly ripe cabbages were her new play toys. I walked out of the house to find several cabbage balls in my driveway.
On Appalachian State football: ASU beat a formidable Samford team 20-7. I'll post a couple of photos later, but because of a torrential downpour, I didn't use a long lens or shoot many fans. I just couldn't risk getting my equipment too wet. Still, I was awed by Armanti Edwards' magic tricks (see video link below) and delighted in seeing Jason Vitaris secure his kicking game.
Armanti scores! Edwards was in the news this week. Tommy Bowman of the Winston-Salem Journal wrote a wonderful story about our quarterback. He is much more than a great athlete. I know. He interned in my office this summer.
And here's just a taste of what Armanti can do. Watch the video and be amazed.
