Generations-Easter Baskets

Pictures from Wednesday's Generations of Faith gathering.

My lovely wife Kriss organized the kid's craft projects and Sister Ellen presented for the bigger kids.

I was once again reminded why I could never be a teacher, kids have so much energy.

I had glue and broom duty.

Hockey Fans

Here we have our hockey fans, one of them quite toothless.


Brad Scores 5 Goals

These pictures are from my nephew Brad's hockey game. I think it was a semi-final game of some type. He scored five goals.

Chickadee Scavengers

Sunday I went out looking for some spring run-off to photograph. I didn't find much, but I did find what looked like a deer carcass rib cage. That was interesting for a bit. As I was getting ready to leave, chickadees came down and started feeding off it. I found if I was quiet and stealthy, I could get closer and closer to the birds.

So...this group of pictures starts off kind of gross and ends up with some standard chickadee birds on a branch pictures.

Good Luck Travis

Friday we had a little going away party at work for Travis. I understand going away means a long, long way. Travis will be defending our country in Afghanistan. I have so much respect for these guys. That makes two people I know who are over there now and deserve our respect and prayers.

Good luck Travis, Godspeed and come home safely.

Electroless Nickel Gold

This line applies a Nickel Gold surface finish to printed circuit boards at Calumet Electronics. Don't ask me how, that's what our process engineers figure out.
