A few months ago I submitted some photos to the American Association of Zookeepers.
I got my copy of the 2012 calendar and I made it! I can officially say that I have been published in both a calendar and on a CD cover. All in the same month. Holy Buckets ~ I feel incredibly cool!
My peacock photo is the credits page – woohoo! Now some of my friends have suggested that my photo was chosen because my Mother works at the Omaha Zoo, but I prefer to be stubbornly arrogant and say it was talent. Either way ~ I’ll never know and I am thankful for that because I wouldn’t want the truth to bruise my ego 🙂
If you are in the Omaha area, please support the Henry Doorly Zoo by getting a copy of their calendar, because they do wonderful things for our planet. Oh, and they need to send my Mom to South Africa in a few weeks and I want to make sure she has plane fare home. And malaria shots. And a guide for tromping around in the wild, or at the very least a map (they have a shoestring budget and I would bet they won’t spring for GPS).
On second thought, if you are the praying type ~ please put in a good word for her.

This friend is pretty sure your picture made it in there because it was Ridiculously Amazing, not because of your wonderful ma. CONGRATS!
Yahoo! And it was PURE talent. NOthing more . . . 🙂
