365 days 251-255
I ran as far away as my remote would let me. Not shabby! And can you believe I've gone this far into a 365 challenge without a tripod?? Yep. We have a small one but it doesn't support the big SLR. I improvised this one with a music stand. Lucky for me, all the neighbors were at work and didn't stare at me all weird as I marched across the street with a music stand and camera.

I've loved Bela Fleck since I was in high school - he's this caraaazay banjo player and right now he's touring with a jazz trio. YUM. SO YUM. And here's the nifty part - his mom is coming to visit and we're going to drive down on my birthday, have lunch with husband, then she's leaving me, taking the Dude back up home and I'll have the afternoon in Madison to shop and hang out, then dinner and the show with the husband. !!!!!!!
Ladies and gentlemen, I officially have something to be positively giddy about.
Today was one of those days where I threw my to-do list out the window and headed to the children's museum with Thing 3. This is ...
