It's That Time Again

We are taking high school kids to a weekend camp at Rockbridge this weekend.
I am really REALLY excited about it.
But I also know what a lot of them are coming into the weekend with.

And I am also aware of how tired and worn down I am coming into the weekend simply because this has been a beating of a week.

I've been reading All Quiet on the Western Front and saw this quote:

"We are forlorn like children, and experienced like old men, we are crude and sorrowful and superficial. I believe we are lost."

I think that sums up high school kids.
I think that's a pretty good summary of me.

Have mercy.

I am telling you that you need to start selling your photos like I do. You could make that iTouch in days. I just looked at your ones from the Friday hike adventure. You need to call me. Doing a little on the side can add up quick. I made a couple hundred bucks today alone off a muddy football game. Hello, new 24 inch screen iMac in my house cause of the photo biz. Call me!
