with a fever, coughing and all, I was the only family member to go to my grandson's school olympics. I stayed for 3 event before going to the dr. for some drugs and then home to go into a coma. Here are a couple shots taken with the D2H, SB800 and old cheapo 70-300:
Boogerman started out his first event well

Harris :

I feel your pain. I've been knocked down for several days with "walking pneumonia" - high fever, coloured phlegm sized like golf balls, etc - and taking massive pharmaceuticals. Had to cancel a business trip to Toronto, push off other work... Feh.

But. Seeing Mr. Boogerman in all his glory brought a real smile to my tired face today. It's always a treat to see him, and also, to realise just what a great guy you are for him, in thick or thin.

Thanks.

Thanks John, my wife couldnt be there, nor his aunt. I did not want him to be the only kid without family. He's my best buddy and hopefully he will know that I will always be there for him. I was feverish, lightheaded, and just achy all over, but had to show at least for a few events. It was worth the pain.

Harris,

This statement really made my day. You are a good man my friend. Booger is a lucky kid.

Hope you feel better soon.

The fact is, even if you weren't there physically (which you were) that kid will never be without family.

You're a good man, Harris.

Thanks Patrick, John and Paul. I'm lucky to have him as my buddy. I wish I could do more for him. His dad does care for him, I give him that, but really doesnt remember many things or know how to care for a child. Often yelling at him and saying hurtful things. We try to make his stays with us special, but also not spoil him too badly. Maybe spoil him by spending time doing what he wants to do, regardless of if we do. We went to Chuckie Cheese on a saturday, the place was noisy and packed, but he loves it so much. We play air hockey, and I let him win.

Hope to have him for the weekend after the shoot down here. Take him to Bear Point with his "noculars". Time we spend together, I try to teach him about things, life in general. His dad has a redneck approach at times.
