Shannon's New Philosophy

is summed up by this sign we saw at a country store in Pennsylvania. If only the veterinary practice would hang one...

Allyson and Michael, Sept. 16,2006

This weekend, we attended the wedding of my vet school classmate Allyson and her fiance Mike. It was held at a lodge in the mountains of Pennsylvania, and was such a warm, relaxed, beautiful affair. Ally and Mike decorated with sunflowers from their own garden, and friends and family all pitched in to set up, decorate, and clean up afterward. The weekend perfectly reflected Ally and Mike's personalities. It included a fishing contest after the rehearsal (the bride won,) gifts from the registry at Cabela's (outdoor goods store,) a photographer who was missing his first PennState home game in 10 years, and Mike wearing Converse high-tops with his linen suit. Mark and I stayed in a pine cabin on the property, and enjoyed a bonfire and fireworks after the reception wound down. -S.

A Sandy Day

Just a warm late-summer day at one of Sandy's favorite places. We bring beach chairs but don't get to spend much time in them, as we have other duties. "Throw the stick!", she reminds us every time we (try to) forget. >M

"Throw it!"

"Gettin' all the good out of this good stick"
