Lovely shot of the kids and their reflection. Enjoyed the back and forth of the comments.

Has Mr. Breedon sunk in the lake? :)

Amazing scene, brings back memories of trips we made with the class.

Children of the willow. Camp counselor is the job I am the least qualified for, after wet nurse.
Did I hear something about Dave and 50 pounds of something in a 40 pound bag?

Une photo ingénieuse qui joue avec les reflets, c'est excellent.
TimA13-Dec-2006 01:37
I haven't commented on this before? Don't know why - I've definately viewed it and found it very funny. Still do!

Ms. McGillicutty? That's a name I haven't heard in years. Was that one of Lucy's personas? I think our mom used to call us that.

Your photo is so effective that I have hives rising on my arms as I write. Geesh, Teach!
Ron Horloff28-Sep-2006 22:16
A great capture, with nice colors and reflections. And turtles!

I love this picture, great colors and beautiful reflection.
Dan Chusid20-Aug-2006 19:34
Funny!

Larry, the "pink" exhortation is a ruse. All along I have advocated that John alone wear pink, and only when involved in a clandestine hand-off of sensitive information between clever undercover couriers engaged in planning for The Battle. Pink clothing here would be inappropriate for that reason. Besides, pink would upset the color balance of this scene.
John Cooper14-Jul-2006 11:05
Tell them to wear pink clothes, Dave will be over at the speed of light, or faster.
1moremile14-Jul-2006 01:32
Thanks, Lee. I forgot those turtles were there. I took a separate shot of them alone and of course it stunk so it won't be posted.
LeeG14-Jul-2006 01:28
Dunk them in the pond with the Snaping Turtles. Those Turtles on that dock need a Kid Particle Snack.
1moremile13-Jul-2006 00:35
Mr. Braden does not own 50 pounds of anything.
dan dunn12-Jul-2006 22:11
Kids are so young...my dogs like 'em though {But I feed them dry food instead...}
Dave Beedon12-Jul-2006 17:44
The reference to a person carrying a pack would be more appropriately used to instill in these future explorers the need to shoulder one's own load. Group leaders have a responsibility to support such a practice.
"OK, kids, watch how Mr. Braden willingly picks up his 50-pound pack full of picnic supplies and PBase images."
1moremile12-Jul-2006 02:42
Oh, great. I don't want those duties either. I will leave that up to Tian. I don't need poison ivy either.
Dave Beedon12-Jul-2006 02:22
I am already weighted down with more than enough equipment and do not intend to carry the load of any child who scratches poison ivy rashes or does not pay attention or slouches or wears light blue clothing. I have brought Mr. Braden with me to attend to the sherpant duties. (Yes, I made up that word.)

Love this picture and the story. Excellent work.
