Im trying to stay out of the 100 plus degrees outside...
No photo shoots today, Its production days on Mondays for me.
I wanted to share this with you before I have to leave.
Ive been hearing about Surface computing, (the military uses it currently) Or what they call multi touch. Ive read about it in tech magazines ( those who know me well, know I LOVE TECHNOLOGY! I am usually the FIRST to get anything Techno!) I actually read popular mechanics and all the home theatre magazines. (I take them to the Drs. office when Im done with them!)
I can't wait to get one of these! Maybe for Christmas? They come out this winter.
SURFACE by Microsoft. You can take a photo with a wireless camera, and transmit the photo to the "surface" and view it, expand it, etc...
Right now they are about $10,000.00
I usually wait a little while for the price to go down and the bugs to be worked out.
Dont be surprised when i have this in our studio very soon.
To see what Im talking about check out the video below, or the link above.
What a lovely place! We golfed and went to the spa. It's a very well kept secret! There is an Inn and also Condos both. You can purchase a condo, or just stay for a weekend!

The stadium there was very nice.
The freshman Bulldogs played
McKinney & they had some big boys this year (last year my son was the Biggest on the team.)
My son did great! His grandparents were there too to cheer him on!
The weather was so nice and not hot at all!
He plays offensive and defensive lineman, Center and Nose guard.
He did great and even made a tackle.
He looked massive out on that field, at 5 foot 11 and 220 lbs.
Also our graphic artist Gina was there to see her son Josh play on varsity.
It was a great day, topped with a nice meal with the whole family in Denton. Right down the street from my friend Walters studio.
Our son right now is #48, but that will change next week.
Heres some pics of my son making a tackle.
Scott was tired, he plays both offense and defense and was taking a gatoraid break here.

What an honor. I really do love teaching and so looking forward to it. I hopefully will also be hiring a student in the summer of 2008 to apprentice with me from the class.
I really do love to give back to this profession, espically to those who are appreciative.
By the way Mr. Goff is one of MENTORS. His attention to detail and love of the craft was what pushed me and kept me on the path Ive been on the past 2 decades.
Thank you Steve, Your influence changed the trajectory of my life.
One in particular is Walter from Denton. Hes a fantastic photographer and has a very successful studio there. (We get to see him Saturday!)
My husband and I really enjoy his company and he and his wife can whip up a French Gourmet meal too!
I get regular phone calls from him (hes in my speed dial) and I got an interesting call from him.
It seems a former employee of mine has been trying to get him to do something that he considers unethical. (hes not the first friend of mine shes contacted.)
I thank God for my "REAL Friends" not False friends.
That's what makes life worth living, when you can Trust people. When you are successful, there are always going to be those "ticks" who try to latch on and suck the blood from you. Im sorry to say, this particular woman has done just that.
Maybe SOMEDAY she will LEARN you cant treat people like that.

I hope you'll watch it. This guy is really good, and what a beautiful song, one of my favorites.
We had a great time and all rested and up to our neck in sessions the week before school starts back!

I spent the day reading. I love to read books, however... This is the first time I've read a book in one day.
You ask what is this book that I couldnt put down? That was a page turner for 6 1/2 hours?
If you don't know who Duane is he is also known as "DOG THE BOUNTY HUNTER." His appearence is tough, but he is as soft as can be inside.
I highly recommend it! What a life hes lead!I just love this guy. Ive experienced many of the things he wrote about myself in my life. Maybe thats why I love him so much!
Heres the review of his Memoir.
Duane "Dog" Chapman entertains and inspires millions on Dog the Bounty Hunter, his #1-rated show on A&E -- but there is more to his story. From troubled beginnings and tragedy to triumph and transformation, he reveals all for the first time in this no-holds-barred memoir.
Dog spent the first twenty-three years of his life on the wrong side of the law. In You Can Run, but You Can’t Hide, he offers an inside look at his days as a gang member; his dark years of addiction and abuse; and how serving eighteen months in prison for a murder he didn’t commit helped him recommit to his faith.
In You Can Run, but You Can’t Hide, Dog recounts his incredible story, chronicling his journey from his onetime criminal past to the guiding faith that has led him to become one of the most successful bounty hunters in American history.

I had to PAY for the advice I got, but I freely give it away. To date, Ive written over 50 articles (2 last month alone).
I love to share. The benefit of that is my little students send me cards, emails, letters, gifts and hugs when i travel around the nation.
Here's just a simple letter I got today. But It always means a lot.
The sad thing is a few of the people whom Ive helped stabbed me in the back later, but for the most part, the others have been grateful. My 2nd book will be coming out soon and I know this will be very helpful to those of you starting out.
I'm so excited, It should be out by September 14th.
Here's the one i received today. Well headed on vacation! See yall later!
Thanks so much, I love your site too!
:-) I know the feeling about being behind on orders too. I'm trying to get caught up myself! You are always so helpful!
I just wanted to say Thank you so much! I check your blog often, because I love to see what you are doing! I'm also going to be switching website companies, thanks to you! :-) I'm super excited about it! I can't wait! I recently got some new equipment, so things are going good!
It was great to hear from you!
Love ya! Brooke"
Just wanted to post a photograph of one of my favorite people! This bride is such a sweetheart!
I drove to Austin to create her bridal portrait.
She is an elementary teacher and is as sweet as sweet can be. She used to babysit for me about 10 years ago.
Love her to pieces!
Have a good weekend everyone! Im taking a well deserved vacation. Got my family staying and house sitting for us.
Glad Hurrican Aaron is gone!
Dixie and the gang.

"Do it Anyway"
People are unreasonable, illogical and self-centered.
Love them Anyway.
If you do good, people will accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives.
Do good Anyway.
If you are successful, you win false friends and enemies.
The good you do will be forgotten tomorrow.
Do good Anyway.
Honesty and frankness make you vulnerable.
Be honest and frank Anyway.
What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight.
People who really want help may attack you if you help them.
Help them anyway.
Give the world the best you have and you may get hurt.
Give the world your best anyway."
Good morning everyone!
I wanted to write a quick post here,I have a full up calendar this week (even busier than last week!)
So since I dont like goodbyes... Ill just say "SO LONG!"
The girls will hold the studio down while were gone if you need anything.
