Uncle Pete

  1. Actually he is my brother-in-law but we all call him uncle Pete. I don't see him much but he stopped in here at my house unexpectedly yesterday on the way to another appointment north of here. I took just a minute to snap his picture and send it on to my sister. It's just a snapshot made with natural light and a little bounce fill flash. He is like most of us male members of families, there aren't many pictures taken of us so my sis was thrilled to get it. In any event, here is a picture of uncle Pete, a good guy.
