Where's the Picture Man?

Yesterday was picture day at the Circle School. A Life Touch school photographer from Anchorage flew and then drove to arrive at our school. He did a great job. He was very generous with his time and pictures, taking more than simply the head shots. He took pictures of our kids in class and during their gym time. He also took pictures all around the school and of the snow and frost outside.

He was chatty and talked to everyone who came in. After staying the night in the school on Sunday night, and taking pictures on Monday, he left between two and three in the afternoon. He had told me that he was driving back to Fairbanks to overnight and then driving on to Minto on Tuesday.

Life Touch corporate offices called our school today to see if the photographer was still here. A concerned sounding lady on the phone said that the school in Minto had called them to say that the photographer had not shown up as scheduled. I assured her that he had indeed left, twenty fours hours ago.

I’m sure he’s fine. Wherever he is. I mean, people do go off the road, but surely someone would have seen him if he put it in the ditch and spent the night somewhere along the way. I was sorry I couldn’t give the lady on the phone more information, and now I'm wondering where he might be.

Melissa should be having a baby right about now. I know we’re all sending good thoughts toward her.

NaBloPoMo day 20.

Hope the photographer is safe and sound. On another subject, we just got back from the hospital, and "It's a boy!". The baby and mother are doing fine. Patrick Julius Nugen weigh in at 7.5 lbs, 20.5 inches, and was born on Nov 20, 2007 at 6:45PM.

I wonder if the photographer is the same who took our pictures a few weeks ago; he was quite friendly, and handled our preschoolers very well. Post if you hear more about his fate. I had to comment mostly to let you know that I enjoy your blog immensely. (And I'll never let the terrorists win :) I just love it. I do not update our website nearly as often, but you can find photos of our Fort Yukon experience at www.desertminute.com.

Yes, please don't leave us hanging and not knowing the fate of this photographer. Make sure you provide an update. ;-)
