Get a load of this

Since it's my last day at work, and I have a Mount Angel City Council meeting, today's post is all about me.

Anyway, found out today I won second place for News Photo for weekly papers in the Oregon and SW Washington Society of Professional Journalists contest Saturday. I got the award with this photo to the right.

I shot this last summer when I was doing a ride-a-long with the Stayton Fire District during a grass fire exercise.

My shoe caught on fire during the exercise. One of the firemen told me:

"Pat, during a grass fire, stay on the burned part. You are safe there, normally."

Well off to my meeting. Woo Hoo fun fun fun!

Tomorrow is diapers and Elmo.
