Halloween at Saturday Market

Well if you think we folk at the Saturday Market in Eugene are weird, you should have been there on Halloween; yep even weirder if that is possible. What fun. In my attempt to do my "homework" by taking pictures, I can honestly say that my dog ate my homework.

Great strange story, but here is. About a year ago, with three dogs, two of them puppies at the time, we went to our son's graduation from the police academy in Salem. When we got home, we couldn't find our Exilim camera. It remained lost for at least two months. We found it in the backyard at our house under some straw. It had chew marks on it, but surprisingly enough, it still worked! But who was the evil doer (yes this could be a Halloween story for sure)?

After a bit, we decided to see the pictures from the graduation and what do you know, there were now three additional pictures at the end. Two pointed straight up at some trees in the backyard and one more - the one picture that would hold up in puppy court - the side of a red face. Only one of the dogs is red, so, busted! Its a little out of focus, but we're thinking about getting her some formal training.
The camera worked fine for about the next year, then last week - certain death. A new camera is on the way and I promise to get more pictures once it arrives. Until then, enjoy this shot of the Evil Eleanore probably tired after eating a phone or something. It took time, but eventually the dog ate my homework.
