The Fickle Finger of Fame

Yesterday I had an errand to run downtown and I wound up getting captured on film by a photographer for the Edmonton Sun. I was feeding coins into a parking meter without realizing that a large billboard of Darth Vader was looming behind me, as if making sure I was contributing sufficient change.

The photo ran in today's Sun. Obivously I can't post it here, but it's an amusing enough shot if you care enough to pick up the tabloid today.

In lieu of that photograph, here's one I shot while fooling around yesterday.



UPDATED!
See the photo online at the Edmonton Sun. Thanks to Susan Neumann for bringing this to my attention.

I wanna see the picture! Whaa!

By the way, the verification word for this post is "jsuxotnk", which on first glance, I thought was an acronym for "Jesus sucks, oh thanks".

That looks like a nice shirt.




What are you doing wearing a nice shirt?

= )

"Jesus Sucks, oh thanks" is GOLD.

Hi Earl,

Sorry I missed the pic, but I hope you clipped a copy or two to show around. I heard it was a good snap.

Why don't I ever get an interesting verification word? Bad karma, I guess. Sigh.

You look great in both photograph and I agree you definitely are very photogenic. The "nice shirt" was picked out two years ago and only worn on "grown-up" occassions..lol.

Ahh, those were the days when I was Susan Neumann. Did you remember when I got married, Earl? Maybe you can come over and watch our home wedding video, Jeff doesn't seem to want to anymore. :)

Well maybe Jeff can change his last name to Neumann.
