As mentioned in my previous post, we adopted a new kitten from a local shelter.
Feeling they need all the help they can get to support, rehabilitate and find homes for stray and sometimes abused animals, I volunteered to help them out with some video work.
Here's the first one.
It is a rewarding activity for some of my free time.
Travel, intensive pre- and post-production and even a vacation have made Summer 2012 memorable.
Here are some photo highlights.
The Summer began with the sad departure of my beloved Tabby Tigger. He was 16 and had a great life with us.
After a few weeks we found a new little bundle of joy.
July 4th - we discovered the fun of legal multi-packs of fireworks. With garden hose standing by we celebrated America's 236th birthday. The Bicentennial seems like yesterday.
A few back to back trips to Washington DC afforded some nice photo ops.
While a recent trip to Colorado presented some visual as well as technical opportunities.
A little bit of fun (it's fake blood I swear):
While in Denver I visited the makeshift memorial to the Aurora theater victims. It made the tragedy seem much more meaningful, as opposed to Anderson Cooper's ramblings. Sad indeed.
This past weekend I celebrated my 15th anniversary wth a fancy fondue dinner:
And as if that wasn't enough fun, the next day I was treated to a surprise birthday party for my entry into middle age:
We are now busy preparing two new web-based educational services, our entry into the multi-touch iBook format and our annual support of a surgical video program consisting of nearly 200 videos over 4 days.
Later in the year we will present close to 30 live surgery cases from all over the world at a one-day meeting. Should be exciting.
So, busy times past, present and future.
Thanks, as always, for reading
PS - Since you are sure to ask, here are some more pictures of our kitten.
Adorable, isn't he!
