Like most of you, I was taught from an early age that it’s impolite to boast or “toot my own horn”. So I struggled with today’s post. But I was so honored by this and wanted to share with my readers.
You may recall a couple of months ago when Motor Man and I “helped” launch a hot air balloon. We didn’t ride, but one of the passengers that day was a reporter for our local paper.
A couple of weeks later, he e-mailed to ask me for permission to use some of my photos in an upcoming story. Well, the story was in yesterday’s paper. I would share the link with you, but it isn’t visible unless you have a digital subscription. So here’s the next best thing:
And close-ups of the article, just in case you’d like to read it. Hopefully, you can click to enlarge the pictures.
Yes, I was given photo credit!
This photo was taken by the reporter.
That’s Motor Man on the left in this next picture, helping to keep the balloon from launching until it can be untethered.
In other news, on Saturday afternoon, we had very odd weather (more about that tomorrow) in our area. That morning, I had run some errands in the nearest “big city”, Newport News. On the way home, as I was about to drive onto the James River Bridge, which connects our county to Newport News, I noticed fog over the river. I diverted to a nearby riverside park, and took this photo.
And this picture was also published in yesterday’s paper in a weather-related article.
So that’s my news that I’m humbly sharing with all of you.
