Shot Gun Merit Badge

This is in between rounds of a shot gun class for Boy Scout Troop 185.
The crisp air and  light rain made for some especially nice glistening light.

St. Patrick's Day - Ireland, Indiana

This past weekend I shot at the St. Patrick's Day Celebration in Ireland, Indiana.
I have been told by many people about the small town festivals in Dubois County,
and I must say, that after my first time experiencing one first hand, I look back on
them and feel very much at home.  It was a rather quarky sequence of events that
allowed me to spend time getting to know people and observing how their community members connect with one another.

Organist's last day

Vita Bartley has been the organist at St. Ferdinand Catholic Church for 63 years. This past Sunday was her last.  The list on the lower left is a hand written line up of songs so the choir knows what to sing.

The kids who go to the sporting events in Dubois County always seem to have some
kind trickery going on. This morning tournament game, they all brought newspapers to read while the rivaling team's players are introduced. This little boy was the only one
without a newspaper in his lap. He squirmed back and forth for a few moments trying to
horn in on someone else's newspaper but alas he had none and he burst into laughter.
