It's a tradition in Bay City that all the children gather in Wenonah Park armed with flashlights to help guide Santa and Mrs. Claus in to Bay City.

Murder in Bay City!

Today I witnessed a murder.

I saw a bird eat another bird!

It's ripping the other bird's feathers off!

This was the culprit. I know it looks like daylight, but I just brightened it a lot so you could see what kind of bird it was. Some kind of hawk.

The best of the past week-ish

Jackie Frasik of Bay City helps her daughter Corianne Sharon, 7, put on her bicycle helmet Wednesday after school. Corianne received a brand new bicycle after her old one was stolen a week before her birthday in October. The bike was a gift from a Bay City Police officer who heard her story.

birds in my window.

I was sitting on my couch eating a Hot Pocket Saturday when I noticed a flurry of wings flapping outside my window. I looked out and saw about 50 birds flying in and out of a tree that butts up against my apartment. I have no idea what kind of birds these are, but here are some pics! I love it when nature comes to me!

Squares.

Photobucket

Soooo I have a problem. I always crop things into squares. Maybe it has something to do with the affinity I have for my mom's old photos from when she was growing up. Back then, photos were square.

Anyway, these are two Pinconning High School flagcorps girls walking into Kelly/Shorts Stadium.

Ten Point Buck

At the end of my workday yesterday this guy came into the newsroom asking me if I could take a picture of the deer he shot... he had it tied to the trunk of his car right outside the office.
