Crouching Tekiela Hidden Wheeler

Stan Tekiela Tries to hide his gigantic scope (paging Dr. Freud) under a camo tarp. Combine that with Amber and I sitting nearby in camo burkas we were a scary looking party on the Duluth hillside.

Brian Wheeler attacks Amber. Why can't more authors be fun like this?

I totally geeked out yesterday. Amber and I got to hang out with Stan Tekiela and Brian Wheeler yesterday. It was just as exciting as I thought it would be. We sat under camo tarps, watched hawks come in and listened as Tekiela and Wheeler click clicked their cameras.

I'm so tired right now, I don't know how I'm going to make it to work today. I'm just grateful that I have Denny and Ron in today to put away the seed order. I got home past midnight last night after sitting on the ground most of the day, but again it was sooo worth it.

The best was watching Wheeler getting into his photographing outfit. He looked like Swamp Thing. The other thing that cracked me up was the amount of cell phone usage. I warned Bill and the people at work that I would probably be in places that it would be hard to reach me. I mostly didn't want to be the odd person out with her phone going off every few minutes. No one called me at all and these guys were talking every few minutes. It was great.

Wheeler had a sense of humor although Stan had warned us he was kind of a stick in the mud (which in hindsight I think was a joke Stan was playing on Amber and me...I got even, I told Wheeler what he said).

Amber and I are the coolest people I know.
