5th Grade Graduation

Going through some older film and found these photos. Since the MP800 has a pretty good negative scanner, I'm putting them up here where most of the photos go.

This is Annabelle at her graduation from 5th Grade. So ends Warren Elementary School, on to Cockeysville Middle School. Posted by Picasa

Thanksgiving 2006

We had a nice Thanksgiving buffet. Miles was here in the morning, but didn't want to go to lunch. (Self-portrait of us, hand-held by me)

Joe and Julie were over in the morning as we do every year.

I got the Christmas lights going by dusk. A good Thanksgiving.

Violent Weather Front

This is the view out our front door directly after the front that passed through the east coast today. It did make for a nice sunset but there was an unholy amount of rain, flooding the Baltimore beltway in places and playing hell with our drive home today. Posted by Picasa

The Crown Vic

For the sake of completeness, here is the P71 Crown Victoria Police Interceptor. It's been a very good car. I think we'll keep it, even thought I'm thinking of getting a BMW 2002. Posted by Picasa

Howard County Fair

We went to the Howard County Fair today. It was quaint and fun. Sort of a low speed version of the state fair later this month. All the photos are at http://picasaweb.google.com/bparkinson/HowardCountyFair Posted by Picasa

Loch Raven Reservoir

We went powerboating on Loch Raven Reservoir today in this aluminum jonboat with an electric trolling motor. Saw lots of non-migratory geese, they are everywhere out there. Posted by Picasa

It's finally warm enough to wade around in Silver Creek, which is quite near our house. Posted by Picasa

More Silver Creek

The state supposedly stocks the creek with trout, but this is all we saw. Posted by Picasa

Loch Raven Canoe Trip

Annabelle and I took a pretty long canoe trip on Loch Raven Reservoir on Sunday. It was fun and we went about six miles in two hours.

Bad news is that it aggravated my herniated disk and I am down hard, and back to the acupuncturist for pain relief.

All the rest of the canoeing pictures are at http://bobparkinson.smugmug.com/gallery/1527609 Posted by Picasa
