Ack! I forgot to say that Cynthia Wiebe, in addition to taking very good photos, was also one of my special guests. I forgot because there's no picture of her reading and I'm kind of literal like that these days...
I mostly wish I had a picture of Cynthia laughing herself to tears as I told the story of how we met in Assiniboine Forest when Aa was 6 weeks old.
But I suppose that's what recollections are for.
